GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement regarding the latest unconstitutional gun control law passed by Albany Democrats and signed by Kathy Hochul which would turn Adirondack Park gun owners, a significant portion of NY-21, into felons:

“Kathy Hochul and her radical Far-Left Democrat allies in Albany are shredding the Constitution as their most recent gun ban bill immediately classifies the tens of thousands of law-abiding gun owners in the Adirondack Park as felons. This unconstitutional legislation states that a person is guilty of criminal possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun in a sensitive location when such person possesses a firearm, rifle or shotgun in or upon a sensitive location.” The unconstitutional bill goes on to define “a sensitive location shall mean public parks.” This is a direct attack on the law-abiding and patriotic citizens of the North Country and Adirondack Park. I will always stand up for my constituents as radical politicians like Kathy Hochul and downstate Democrats attack the Constitution and our Upstate values.”
