NSSF is pleased to announce that a joint New York state budget committee today voted on a revised budget (AB 9055D) that repeals the ballistics-imaging (COBIS) requirement from state law.

Anti-gun legislators had also tried to include a provision in the bill that would have mandated microstamping throughout the state.

Remington Arms Co. and Kimber Manufacturing, both New York-based manufacturers, voiced strong opposition to microstamping in Albany.

This is a tremendous victory for law-abiding firearm owners, retailers and manufacturers.

NSSF encourages all New Yorkers to contact members of the Joint Budget – Public Protection/Criminal Justice/Judiciary Committee and thank them for their votes today.
