NY shouldn’t try to ban gun raffles as fundraisers

Posted 27 October 2019 at 5:18 pm


Outlawing gun prizes for raffles is about the funding of organizations not about the guns. The organizations will suffer monetary loses. The raffles that organizations hold is for the organizations to be self-sufficient and help the community.

I honestly believe it is to strap fire companies, American Legions and other non-profits that raffle off firearms to raise money for themselves. I do not believe it has anything to do with firearm misuse. It is to force his ideas of green energy down the throats of rural areas.

Banning Firearms as raffle prizes is abuse of power by NYC Democrats and Gov. Cuomo against rural organizations. It has nothing to do with firearm misuse. It is to financially hurt helpful and necessary organizations. You must ask yourself? “What type of person would hinder a Fire Department? The answer is a bully full of self-righteousness and discrimination in the heart.

Rural living and all civil liberty fighters need to know 18 U.S. Code Sections 241 & 242,N.Y. Constitution Article I, and the Constitution of the United States. They also need to be educated about candidates and true intentions. Look at voting records. Track pending bills in State and Federal Legislatures. If you do not know how, learn how. It is easy and you can have input on proposed legislation.
