Walsh: New Gun Legislation Merely Punishes Responsible Gun Owners

A statement from Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C,I,Ref-Ballston) on today’s passage of gun control legislation

“This legislation would merely make it more difficult for New Yorkers to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms. To solve the problem of gun violence, we should explore alternative options like expanding mental health services and improving school safety programs. It’s time we stop punishing responsible gun owners and work together to find real solutions to our state’s problems.”
