Support Nicholas’s Law for the safe storage of guns in New York.
While New York State has strong gun safety laws, the state does not have a child access prevention and safe storage law to keep guns away from kids. Preventing children from accessing guns will help prevent accidental shooting deaths and injuries–as well as impulsive suicides–among children and adolescents.
NYAGV is advocating for the enactment of A53/S2291–also known as Nicholas’s Law—the Child Access Prevention or Safe Weapon Storage Act. The bill is named for 12-year-old Nicholas Naumkin, who died after being unintentionally shot by a friend playing with his father’s unlocked gun.
