    • Our neighbors in the City of Poughkeepsie are facing an anti-gun “safe storage” ordinance. Public comments were received by the Poughkeepsie Common Council on April 20. Thanks to the PCFGA members who showed up in opposition to this proposed ordinance. It is important that we continue to show up and express our displeasure whenever these anti-gun proposals are brought forward. Local ordinances will now be a focus for NYAGV and we must be vigilant and ready to push back. This new local focus was reported recently along with phony polling results, as part of their renewed efforts to trample our rights: http://bit.ly/1zkOc04
