GLENS FALLS, NY– Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement on Kathy Hochul and Albany Democrats’ unconstitutional anti-Second Amendment legislation that her Far-Left Downstate Democrat opponent supports going into effect:

“Today is a dark day for Upstate New York, the North Country, New York State, and the United States Constitution as Kathy Hochul and Albany Democrats’ unconstitutional legislation that is an assault on our fundamental Second Amendment rights goes into effect. This legislation is a direct attack on the law-abiding and patriotic citizens of the North Country and Adirondack Park and would classify tens of thousands of law-abiding gun owners in NY-21 as felons.

I will do everything in my power to fight this bill and defend Upstate New York and the North Country’s Second Amendment rights, just as I did when I signed the amicus brief against New York’s unconstitutional concealed carry permitting process the Supreme Court struck down earlier this year.

Not surprisingly, this legislation is supported by my Far-Left Downstate Democrat opponent, showing the voters of NY-21 how out of touch he is with our values.

This is not a partisan issue. Law-abiding gun owners are Democrats, Republicans, and Independents all across NY-21. That is why we will send a message at the ballot box for change in New York State this November by voting out all these dangerous, radical, failed Far-Left politicians from office.”
