If we don’t protect them...

How are they going to protect us?
"Governor Pataki and the State Senate need to take a hard look at the Assembly’s gun package and pass laws that will keep law enforcement officers safe." - Jim Brady, Chair of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
"This is plain and simple - the NRA versus the lives of our children and our police officers." - Mayor Michael Bloomberg

Help us ban cop-killer bullets

Police officers face enough dangers everyday without having to worry about whether their bullet-proof vests are going to protect them. Assemblyman Dinowitz sponsored legislation (A.2837) that the Assembly passed to ban armor piercing, exploding and incendiary bullets, but the Senate refuses to consider the bill. Help Assemblyman Dinowitz continue the fight to get these bullets off our streets by filling out the card on the reverse side.

Legislation Endorsed by 143 Police and Sheriff’s Departments

Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz’ ongoing efforts to make New York safer

Assemblyman Dinowitz has also fought hard to protect New Yorkers from criminals by voting for tough measures to combat illegal guns and increase penalties for cop killers. His efforts include measures to:

  • Ban the military-grade .50-caliber rifle which can accurately pierce armor from a distance of almost two miles (A.4471-A)

  • Ban convicted felons from obtaining firearms (A.1170)

  • Expand the ballistic identification databank to assist law enforcement officers in tracking down guns used in crimes (A.968-B)

  • Require law enforcement officers to report guns, spent bullets and shell casings found at crime scenes to the ballistic identification databank (A.2213)

  • Crack down on the practice of "straw buyers" who legally purchase firearms for resale to criminals (A.9280)

Unfortunately, the Assembly’s efforts to enact these bills have been stymied by the NRA-backed Senate majority, which continues to oppose any common-sense efforts to crack down on illegal guns. Assemblyman Dinowitz will continue in the year ahead to press for tough measures that will keep New York the safest large state in the nation.
