NY exactly my thoughts, But that new law made something like 70 percent of currently owned pistols illegal to sell, I might be wrong but it is very concerning that an entire state of people seem to have just laid down and took it where the sun don't shine. without a whimper. very curious that I haven;t heard nearly a word from NY citizens about it. It;s almost like no big deal to them, and its the closest thing to getting neutered that I can imagine
"NYSRPA, in co-operation with the NRA, are having the Cuomo law reviewed by a highly qualified legal team. We ask that no other 3rd party legal action be taken without prior consultation. We realize that this law impacts a large number of people, but a proper legal review will take some time. NYSRPA/NRA will be filing a Notice of Claim prior to submitting a brief on the merits of the constitutionality of the new gun law. Involved in the lawsuit will be two of the nations best 2nd Amendment attorneys. This is a very important proceeding and must be handled properly with the best lawyers. We will not win without support from gun owners. You can help either by joining/renewing your membership or making a online donation.
Please do not call or e-mail the office or directors asking for more information. Any announcements on this issue will be published here on our website. Thank you for your understanding." http://www.nysrpa.org/
Honestly, I wouldn't expect the media to give much voice to those protesting.

This is good to know information. My concern is that almost the same ban has been inplace for a decade in CA, and it hasn't been struck down or deemed unconstituional by SCOTUS. I don't think States or the federal government can restrict the Bill of Rights, which are univeral individual rights. However, this hasn't been the practice of the past, with things like the CA AWB in place and seemingly unchallenged. I think this damages the NRA & NYSRPA legal case in NY.
