SCOPE NY AG dog & pony show

  SCOPE has committed to an initial grant of $1000 from our legal defense fund. Despite what the news reports are saying, none of those arrested where dealers, none of them paid for tables. All where walk-ins to the shows. The promoters who are being targeted by the attorney general's office obeyed all applicable laws. They had all required signage notifying attendees of the shows that any transaction required a NICS check. In every case thepromoters provided a station to get your NICS check done, with prominent signage.
SCOPE does not support those who knowingly break the law, as seems to be the case from all the reports I've seen. We do not object to the law being enforced in a uniform objective manor, however it is clear that the attorney general's office is less interested in the prosecution of these individuals then they are in using this as a political stunt to

1.Advocate for greater restrictions on the law abiding gun owners and sportsmen, and
this is even more insidious,

2.To force legitimate businessmen out of the gun show business and close down all gun shows in the state.
Our support for NFC Shows is not only because they are SCOPE members with a history of supporting SCOPE and gun rights in NY, but more importantly, because if we allow them to shut them down and run them out of business then we allow them to restrict access for everyone, and push their anti-rights agenda. The next step would be to ban all private transfers. This must be stopped now, or the restrictions will continue, until we have no rights left at all.

Please request support for the SCOPE legal defense fund. We will need a lot more assets to continue to fight this across the state and into next year.
