Hawley urges grassroots opposition to bill hindering youth marksmanships programs

posted by Billie Owens in youth marksmanship, news, steve hawley.

Press release:

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) is urging constituents, local officials, Second Amendment advocates, Rod & Gun Club members and anyone involved with youth marksmanship programs to call or write their local representative and Gov. Cuomo requesting a veto of legislation that could virtually wipe out all shooting competitions for youth and training for young people under 16 years of age.

The so called “Safe Storage” bill, which Hawley voted againstplaces unnecessary and ambiguous restrictions on the storage and incapacitation of firearms for those who do not own them and could put an end to youth marksmanship in New York.

“As we’ve seen time and time again with these measures that infringe on our right to bear arms, they are poorly written and passed hastily, causing many undue consequences that hurt law-abiding gun owners, hunters and those who simply enjoy marksmanship activities,” Hawley said.

“This bill has not yet been sent to the governor to be signed into law, which means we must make our voices heard. I urge everyone who supports youth marksmanship and the Second Amendment to call or write the governor immediately!”

Contact Gov. Cuomo by phone: (518) 474-8390

By mail:     The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
                   Governor of New York State
                   NYS State Capitol Building
                   Albany, NY 12224

Blah, blah, blah..... more dribble from Assemblymember Hawley.

How about working on something that makes sense for a change instead of grandstanding about your guns?

The community is being ravaged by opiate addiction and our roads and bridges are in dire need of repair. Yet, time and time again your actions demonstrate you are misguided. Please try to do something for the Citizens or your District that does not include, blaming Democrats in Albany and/or issuing press releases about your failures.

Any action to fight the infringement of our 2nd Amendment right and related activities should be top priority.

Assemblyman Hawley is at a real deficit in the NYS Assembly to make things happen. If we the people don't rise up and act, then prepare to kiss it goodbye.

The people get the government they deserve.

Scott, "grandstanding about your guns". So, trying to protect our rights is grandstanding? As Brian stated, Hawley is in the minority, but that does not mean Hawley should not keep us all aware of what the liberals are doing
