My last post referenced attempts in New Jersey to pass new bills “intended to strengthen the state’s gun laws”.
NY State’s legislative bodies (Senate & Assembly) begin their new session next week on January 5. Several Gun control bills were presented in the past 3 years with many taking a back seat to the problems surrounding the pandemic. Will this be the year New Jersey “like” bills are introduced here? Can we expect you to become more involved in monitoring such legislation?
One of SCOPE’s major goals is to track such bills and educate members as well as our elected officials as to whether we support or reject each piece of legislation.
This is a time consuming process requiring a good deal of research. We need members who have the time for such research to engage in the bill-tracking process.
This will be a topic of discussion at our next Wayne County Members’ Meeting to be held on January 12 @7 pm in the Marion American Legion Post. Consider this a request to attend and become more involved in your SCOPE Chapter.
