Statement From Assemblyman Walczyk on New Gun Laws

“Lawmakers raised their right hand and swore an oath to uphold the constitution.Instead of doing their job, Albany thought it was best to rebuff the Supreme Court and pass legislation that further infringed upon the second amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.When I voted no on this bill, I said on the floor of the Assembly, this is unconstitutional.

Yesterday, a Federal Judge agreed and said these new gun laws that take effect today are, without question, unconstitutional.While more court battles are likely ahead, this is a victory for liberty and our rights.The Governor should be embarrassed.”
