DEC to Issue Online Hunting Classes
From our member Gary....  It should not be a surprise the DEC has suspended all the hunter ed classes. If you know someone that still wants to get a NYS hunting license that needs a hunter ed certificate, the DEC has come up with a temporary work-around. This method will cost a small fee to a 3rd party company. Upon successfully completing the course, one will get a certificate to use to purchase a NYS hunting license. One may have to call various places to find one that is open and will sell licenses.

NATIONAL 2A RELATED NEWS:
Kirstin Gillibrand Attacks Our Rights Again!
Because of the commie virus gun sales boom, New York's Senator Gillibrand sent a letter to the ATF and FBI looking to change how gun sales are conducted during this sales surge and provide guidance to them.  She is joined by 15 other Senators and the letter is penned by clown democrat Senators: Blumenthal (CT) and Markey (MA).  She wants the ATF and FBI to change their procedures and: 1) have ATF urge FFLs not to release firearms if the 3 day wait period for delayed gun sales is exceeded, which could potentially result in infinite delays, 2) have the FBI collect data on 3 day delayed sales and report it to congress 3) wants the FBI to retain incomplete background check records past the statutory 90 day limit and retain them until after the government says the Commie virus is over 4) wants the FBI to use the N-DEx portal to disqualify people with incident, case reports, and investigations that are not yet found guilty, and 5) wants the ATF to remind the FFLs to tell people about safe storage and provide a gun lock for each handgun and also recommend that FFLs provide their customers, especially first-time gun buyers, with information about the risks and responsibilities of gun ownership and about safe storage practices.
