Skip to comments.Petition Urging Repeal of New York's Gun Law Gets 40,000 Signatures In One Day

Yesterday we reported on only two Republican state Senators here in New York having the courage to stand up against Governor Cuomo's political gun grab legislation.
One of those Senators, Kathy Marchione, had started a petition on her website in an attempt to demonstrate "strong public support for preserving our Constitutional freedoms".
The support is indeed strong, with reports indicating that signatures are being placed on the petition at a clip of over 1,300 per hour.
Since yesterday, the petition - found here - has received over 40,000 signatures in total.
Marchione posted this on Facebook earlier this afternoon:
"40,402. That's how many signatures our on-line petition to repeal and replace the new unconstitutional gun control law in NYS has received since 10:54 a.m. yesterday."
Sadly, there are few politicians left who have taken an interest in defending our Constitutional freedoms. But when somebody like Marchione comes along and fights a lonely fight here in the liberal haven of New York State, it's important to stand with them.
Please read and sign the petition.

The politicians will ignore it. Too late now. Votes have consequences. If you elect liberals you will lose your rights and pay more taxes.
Petitions serve as a means for those in power to create enemies’ lists...and for many of their proponents to build fundraising lists. In other words, not worth the digital ink.
Sadly, we in NY are pretty much phoqued anyways.
guarantee that gun owners up in NY voted for this idiot ebcause their union or their fmaily have always voted Dem.
It is they which should have their guns taken off them as they voted for this crap.
You got that right.
Good luck with that. A majority of New Yorkers (and Americans) decided to elect rulers as opposed to public servants. And now we get to enjoy the consequences.
I’m trying to figure out in what state CW2 will start, maybe it will be NY.
I’d support an impeachment too. Whatever it takes to get this tyrant out of office.
