New York’s NRA membership nearly doubles in wake of SAFE Act
#1
Quote:Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, said the NRA headquarters in Washington recently informed him his state affiliate has now surpassed Texas and California to become the largest state NRA chapter in the nation.

The NRA affiliate saw its membership rise from 22,000 statewide to 41,000 since the SAFE Act was approved in January 2013, King said.

While he said his group has had regular membership growth over the years, “it has grown exponentially faster than it ever has before and it can only be attributed to the SAFE Act,’’ he said.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Maybe if it had doubled BEFORE they lost their rights, things wouldn't be so...

Not really. The trouble with NYS politics is that NYC rules the state. They have enough politicians due to their population that what they want goes... even if most of NYS disagrees.

I have relatives in upstate NY and NO ONE there is for the SAFE Act. It was strong-armed through the NY assembly by NYC in a maneuver that is arguably illegal.

Every time NYS tries to sever NYC from the rest of the state, NYC blocks them. NYC needs what little resources upstate NY has to be able to function so they are likely to never want that break.

Imagine if Philly gains enough population to control the state... same thing.

Namely, water. New York City's water comes from a very long ways away indeed.
