|NY: NY Assembly passes gun safe storage bill|
Submitted by: firstname.lastname@example.org">Mark A. Taff
On March 4, the New York State Assembly passed a new gun safety measure, which would require guns be stored in a locked container or be outfitted with a locking device if children under 16 live in the house, or are visiting the house.
A press release from Speaker Carl Heastie says, “Under current law, safe storage of guns is only required if a person living in the household is federally prohibited from owning a gun, but not if there are children in the house. This legislation would require that, in households with children and individuals prohibited from possessing a gun by federal or state law, all guns are safely stored when not in possession of the gun owner.”

“3) …the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.” - D.C. v. Heller (2008)
“[A] statute which, under the pretense of regulating, amounts to a destruction of the right, or which requires arms to be so borne as to render them wholly useless for the purpose of defense [is] clearly unconstitutional.”
Translation: UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Period.
