Morinello Deems New Gun Legislation An Infringement on Second Amendment Rights

A statement from Assemblyman Angelo J. Morinello (R,C,I,Ref-Niagara Falls)

“Today, upstate New Yorkers are once again being penalized as the Assembly passed legislation which will further infringe on our Second Amendment rights. Most gun owners in my district own firearms for hunting purposes or as a means to defend and protect their families. Living in the United States is a privilege that allows us to feel protected from terrible events occurring around the world, but our Second Amendment rights serve as a safety precaution in case our citizens ever do face dangerous situations. This year, I’ll continue fighting for our constitutional rights to ensure gun owners in our district can continue living by the values and customs they’ve always enjoyed and respected.”
