Tom King, President of NY State Rifle and Pistol Association for 8 years.
The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association is the state’s largest and nation’s oldest firearms advocacy organization. Since 1871, NYSRPA has been dedicated to the preservation of Second Amendment rights, firearm safety, education and training, and the shooting sports. Membership consists of thousands of individuals and many clubs throughout the state. They are a not-for-profit 501(c)4 organization and the official NRA-affiliated State Association in New York. NYSRPA coordinates many shooting activities and competitions across the state. It is very active in informing its members on current and proposed legislation and lobbing to preserve and promote our rights in NY. It has an active online presence featuring a WEBSITE, FACEBOOK PAGE, BLOG and other online social networking.
Det. Jason Jennings, Middletown Police Department;
Jackie Hilly, Executive Director of New Yorkers against Gun Violence;
Paid head of NY’s own “AstroTurf” anti-gun group. She is from NYC.
From NY Times article on Microstamping and reacting to Remington and others saying that they would move out of state if Microstamping was passed:
“I think it’s ridiculous for them to argue that they would leave New York,” said Jackie Hilly, the executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, a group that wants microstamping. “Look, frankly, if we really want to keep jobs in New York, let’s invest more money in yogurt,” she added, referring to one of the state’s growing industries.
More video of Hilly HERE & HERE. If you bring up the failed CoBIS program and Microstamping Hilly will say that they are not the same and that Microstamping will not cost the state any money. Ask her when she stopped supporting CoBIS and why they were supporting expanding it to include all guns? How does she have any credibility on Microstamping when she was so wrong for so long on CiBIS?
