Rest assured these anti-gun groups are not finished with gun owners yet. SCOPE will continue to monitor new and upcoming bills that are being planned to infringe on our 2nd Amendment rights. That said, SCOPE must now turn it’s attention to the courts for releif. This will require money and new members to keep up the fight.
In the meantime:
Please be patient there is an enormous amount of case law that has to be researched before a coherent suit can be filed.
We are aware of and will lend support to other organizations and other law suits being prepared . The renewable license or background check portions of the law will be the toughest to crack via the courts. We may lose some battles. Courts in NY are hostile and appeals to a higher court are the only way to get around them.
SCOPE is exploring any and all possibilities and will continue to keep our membership energized and informed. SCOPE has joined the National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO WRITE YOUR LEGISLATORS AND KEEP UP THE PRESSURE using our Legislative Action Center.
Stay tuned to the SCOPENY.ORG web site for updates and news.
CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT UPDATE
Hamburg Attorney James Tresmond is preparing a Class Action Law Suit to challenge the legality and constitutionality of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act.
Mr Tresmond spoke to us at the Erie County Chapter meeting last night, (which was standing room only.) He said that he has enough signatures at this time. He said the response was overwhelming and exceeded his expectations. He went on to say that the he has recruited other Attorney’s across the state and all the work is being done “pro bono”.
He refused any financial help that was offered by several attendees He did say that he could use help from us by continuing to call and write our legislators, continue to band together and keep up the pressure on the people that passed this scurrilous act in the dead of night. Please use the SCOPE Legislative Action Center to do just that. SCOPE will keep you all informed of the progress of this and other law suits in the works.
