Shooters Committee on Political Education



Senator Greg Ball

“We needed solid provisions to keep the violently, mentally ill  from harming our communities, our kids and our  families. That didn’t happen tonight. While much  in this bill, as far as stiffer penalties for 
real criminals and help on the mental health  front is good, the last minute push, in the middle of the night without critical public input  from sportsmen and taxpayers was outrageous and  forced members to vote on a bill they had not  read. While I’m glad we won on many fronts, including my permit privacy legislation against  the Journal News, I simply cannot support a bill  that turns law abiding citizens into criminals by  creating an entire new category of illegal  firearms out of currently legal rifles and hotguns,” said Senator Greg Ball.

The Bad




The Ugly!


Screw Gun Owners

Let em eat cake!


This is a pure power grab by Cuomo, he wants to be the first one to pass a gun ban since Newtown. He will of course get national recognition and high fives from 0bama at the State of the Union address. All to set himself up for the presidential run in 2016.

VOTE after only two hours to review the bill.

The Anti's Rejoice

We (gun owners) did what we could.

The Democrats and Governor Cuomo say to us

Let them eat cake!

SCOPE thanks the thousands of people that have called, emailed and faxed over the past week.

Again the bullying of law abiding citizens continues.

The Governor and company used the US Senate method of closed door meeting and dark of night negotiations to pass his so called "reasonable" gun regulations. All of the calls emails faxes and letters to lawmakers were ignored. The Governor and the down state Democrats might as well have said about the gun owners efforts. Let them eat cake!

How they voted to regulate law abiding gun owners with more restrictions!
