    ALERT - Suffolk County Safe Storage Law Filed - CALL NOW

    LEGISLATIVE ALERT for Suffolk County New York. County Legislator DuWayne Gregory has filed a bill for "SAFE Storage". EVERYONE needs to immediately call or email his office and remind him that this type of law in unconstitutional and ineffective and will not be tolerated. His phone number is (631) 853-4088 and his email is [email protected]


    OK guys - don't make excuses - schedule for a day off when this comes up in the legislature!

    "locked up or disabled" was struck down by Heller - that SHOULD be enough to stop it... And a room FULL of Law-Abiding-Gun-Owners saying NO will help.

    One of our elected idiots tried this about 15 years ago - a few of us met with him on friggin' thanksgiving morning - "they only time he's available to meet" His claim then "for the children" was based on ONE child that had been accidentally shot.. TWENTY-FIVE years earlier!!! That one got tabled in the end as I recall.


    If one of you has the time to find out.... exactly HOW MANY 'accidental' shootings have we had - DUE TO an unsecured firearm IN SUFFOLK in the last 10-15 years..... It SHOULD be easy, since the legislature, or Mr Gregory MUST have done that research already right??? (yeah, rolling my eyes...)


    Intro. Res. No. 1777-2016 Laid on Table 9/7/2016
    Introduced by Presiding Officer Gregory

    RESOLUTION NO. -2016, ADOPTING LOCAL LAW NO.-2016, A LOCAL LAW TO REQUIRE SAFE STORAGE OF FIREARMS

    WHEREAS, there was duly presented and introduced to this County Legislature at a meeting held on  , 2016, a proposed local law entitled, "A LOCAL LAW TO REQUIRE SAFE STORAGE OF FIREARMS"; now, therefore be it

    RESOLVED, that said local law be enacted in form as follows:

    LOCAL LAW NO.-2016, SUFFOLK COUNTY, NEW YORK

    A LOCAL LAW TO REQUIRE SAFE STORAGE OF FIREAMS

    BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNTY LEGISLATURE OF THE COUNTY OF SUFFOLK, as follows:

    Section 1. Legislative Intent.

    This Legislature hereby finds and determines that injuries and fatalities attributable to unsecured or improperly stored firearms are a serious threat to public health.

    This Legislature also finds and determines that reasonable regulation of the storage of firearms is necessary and proper to enhance safety in the home and reduce the incidence of violent crime while respecting the rights of gun owners.

    This Legislature further finds and determines that unintentional shootings or impulsive acts of domestic violence and self-inflicted harm are significantly increased in households where firearms are unsecured, unlocked and easily accessible to children and unauthorized users.

    This Legislature finds that studies have determined that 70 percent of child shooting deaths could have been prevented if the firearm had been properly secured and further this Legislature views such preventable child deaths as not merely tragic, but as a pediatric health crisis which our society must take action to address.

    This Legislature also determines that improperly stored firearms can contribute to the occurrence of incidents of intentional self-harm and research suggests that the risk of suicide increases in homes where firearms are kept unlocked or unsecured.

    This Legislature also finds that some of the most horrific acts of violence in this country’s recent history have involved the use of firearms in the school setting.

    This Legislature further finds that secure storage of firearms can help avert tragedy by preventing children from accessing their parents’ unsecured firearms and bringing them to school.

    Therefore, the purpose of this law is to regulate the storage of firearms to keep firearms out of the hands of children and other unauthorized users and to promote responsible gun ownership.

    Section 2. Definitions.

    “FIREARM” – shall mean any weapon from which a shot is discharged by force of an explosive, or a weapon which acts by force of gunpowder, and shall include any weapon capable of being loaded with powder, ball or ammunition, including but not limited to handguns, pistols, rifles, shotguns, and machine guns, whether completed, assembled or from which any part or piece has been removed therefrom.

    “PERSON” – shall mean any natural person, firm, partnership, association, corporation, company or organization of any kind.

    “PHYSICAL INJURY” – means any impairment of physical condition or substantial pain.

    “SAFETY LOCKING DEVICE” – shall mean a design adaptation or attachable accessory that will prevent the use of the firearm by an unauthorized user, and includes, but is not limited to, a trigger lock, which prevents the pulling of the trigger without the use of a key, or a combination handle, which prevents the use of the weapon without the alignment of the combination tumblers.

    “SAFE STORAGE DEPOSITORY” – shall mean a safe or other secure container which, when locked, is incapable of being opened without the key, combination or other unlocking mechanism and is capable of preventing an unauthorized person from obtaining access to and possession of the firearm contained therein.

    “SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY” – shall mean physical injury which creates a substantial risk of death, or which causes death or serious and protracted disfigurement, protracted impairment of health or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily organ.

    Section 3. Safe Storage Depositories or Safety Locks Required.

    (A) No person who owns, controls or is custodian of a firearm shall store or otherwise leave such firearm out of his or her immediate possession or control without having first either 1) securely locked such firearm in an appropriate safe storage depository or 2) rendered such firearm incapable of being fired by use of a safety locking device appropriate to that firearm.

    Section 4. Report of Theft or Loss to Police Department.

    Any theft or loss a firearm, whether from a storage vault, safe storage depository or other location, shall be reported immediately upon discovery to the Suffolk County Police Department. The Suffolk County Police Department shall maintain a record of all such reported thefts, including the identity of the owner of the firearm, the caliber, make, model, manufacturer’s name and serial number of the firearm, the place where the theft or loss occurred, the manner in which such firearm had been sorted, and the time and date when the loss or theft was discovered.



    Section 5. Penalties for Offenses.

    A. Any person who shall violate or shall neglect or refuse to comply with Section 3 of this local law:

    1. upon conviction of a first offense which does not result in physical injury, serious physical injury or death, shall be guilty of a violation punishable by a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment not exceeding 15 days;

    2. upon conviction of a second offense or of a first offense which results in physical injury, serious physical injury or death, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine not exceeding $1,000 or by imprisonment not exceeding one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

    Section 6. Applicability.

    This law shall apply to --- occurring on or after the effective date of this law.

    Section 7. Severability.

    If any clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision, section, or part of this law or the application thereof to any person, individual, corporation, firm, partnership, entity, or circumstance shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unconstitutional, such order or judgment shall not affect, impair, or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision, section, or part of this law, or in its application to the person, individual, corporation, firm, partnership, entity, or circumstance directly involved in the controversy in which such order or judgment shall be rendered.

    Section 8. SEQRA Determination.

    This Legislature, being the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) lead agency, hereby finds and determines that this law constitutes a Type II action pursuant to Section 617.5(c)(20), (21), and/or (27) of Title 6 of the NEW YORK CODE OF RULES AND REGULATIONS (6 NYCRR) and within the meaning of Section 8-0109(2) of the NEW YORK ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION LAW as a promulgation of regulations, rules, policies, procedures, and legislative decisions in connection with continuing agency administration, management and information collection. The Suffolk County Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is hereby directed to circulate any appropriate SEQRA notices of determination of non-applicability or non-significance in accordance with this law.

    Section 9. Effective Date.

    This law shall take effect immediately upon its filing in the Office of the Secretary of State.

      Sounds like Mr. Gregory is in desperate need of a blanket party, or at the very least, be dumped off in the middle of CI, really late on a Saturday night in his underwear.

        Being wrong has never stopped them before, remember Nassau's "Colored Gun Ban"? Alan Chwick had to take them to court and won, with a substantial bit of help from SAFE, the NRA, and a lot of other folks who contributed

              The one thing about liberals is they stay the course.
              They are relentless in their agenda and they know that if they keep throwing their shit at the wall there's a good chance that at some point it will stick.

                Here's Du Wayne's official page.
                http://suffolkcountyny.gov/do15/home.aspx
                From his page:
                • Visit our office at 15 Albany Avenue in Amityville.

                • Call us at 631-854-1111.

                I just called and voiced my displeasure.
                The person answering was polite and professional.

                It appears that Duwayne is running for congress.

                BTW, he's really anti Trump.
                Says so on his congressional campaign site

                Sadly, he's an army veteran and I know you going to be shocked; he's a DEMOCRAT!

                  subject: RESOLUTION NO. -2016, ADOPTING LOCAL LAW NO. -2016, A LOCAL LAW TO REQUIRE SAFE STORAGE OF FIREARMS

                  Dear County Legislator DuWayne Gregory, or To Whom It May Concern:

                  This law infringes on my 2nd Amendment rights. I do not support it in any form. Those in our leadership who continuously push for unconstitutional laws do a disservice to themselves and to the community for whom they were elected to serve.

                  Kind Regards,
                  [my name]

                        I just called and left my contact info, I voiced my displeasure. Keep the calls coming, tell your friends.
                        I explained that the year's wait for a pistol permit in Suffolk should be all the scrutiny a license holder should be burdened by. Further government oversight of a legally owned item is ridiculous.
                        The woman was polite and seemed to be taking notes (or doing her nails).
