New York Democrats Push Legislation Demanding Child-Proof Triggers on Guns

Democrats in the Empire State are pushing legislation that would require child-proof triggers on all guns sold in New York.

 

Senate Bill S3444‘s aims to halt the sale of any firearm without child-proofing one year after it’s passage.

 

Prohibits persons, firms or corporations engaged in the retail business of selling firearms from selling, delivering or transferring child operated firearms; defines “child operated firearm” to mean a pistol or revolver manufactured 1 year after the effective date of these provisions which does not contain a childproofing device or mechanism incorporated into the design of such pistol or revolver to effectively preclude an average 5-year-old from firing same; makes violations a class A misdemeanor.

 

The bill’s sponsor, Senator José M. Serrano, said the bill is vital to keep New York a true nanny state.

 

“There is no reason that a young child five years old should be able to have access to a weapon that he or she could fire,” Serrano said at a

. “So we need to make sure that all weapons sold in the state of New York are not fireable by children this young.”

 

Although a much smarter idea would be to make an age-appropriate gun safety course mandatory for all children, the bill is currently in the hands of the NY Senate Codes Committee.

 

Keep rockin that nanny state status, New York.
