    Feiner calls for state regulation of gun ranges

    Feiner calls for state regulation of gun ranges - Following the discovery of bullets outside the now closed Westchester County Police Revolver and Rifle Range in Greenburgh, Town Supervisor Paul Feiner has called for state or federal regulation of gun ranges.  The issue came to the surface for Feiner when it was confirmed that a local woman had metal fragments from a bullet on her knee.  “We found multiple bullets outside the range area. If the state would send inspectors to take a look, it would increase safety and the state could work with gun ranges to make sure than an accident won’t happen,” he said. “Without regulations, it is only a matter of time before somebody is injured or before there is a fatality.”


    NYSRPA endorses Karl Brabenec for State Assembly

    NYSRPA endorses Karl Brabenec for State Assembly

    ALBANY, NY (09/16/2014)(readMedia)-- The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Political Victory Fund endorses Karl Brabenec for State Assembly in the 98th District. Our endorsement is based upon his candidate questionnaire and his public opposition to the so-called SAFE Act.

    "The number one thing our constituents want to know about candidates is what is their position on the SAFE Act," NYSRPA President Tom King said. "As Town of Deerpark Supervisor, Brabenec helped pass one of the first resolutions in opposition to the law. Scores of other municipalities across the state have since followed suit."

    NYSRPA encourages all area gun owners to support Brabenec on election day.
