Maryland just allowed the Airbow into firearm season for next year. Pretty soon they will be pushing for inclusion into archery season and to tell you the truth the airbow is about the same as a crossbow. The slippery slope has started.
The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.

we are a doomed society where power is the goal and money is the objective and clearly the majority of those in control have neither ethics, morals or common sense.

So far there has not been any Bills introduced for the AirBow to be used during any hunting season in NYS.  However, that does not mean that there will not be.  There are several crossbow Bills in both houses, most notably, Full Inclusion Bills.  Assembly Bill A00479 and Senate Bill S01386 would expand crossbow usage to full inclusion throughout the entire archery seasons.  These Bills will no doubt lead the way for the AirBow to be next.  

Please contact the Legislators who sponsored these Bills and the Chairmen of the respective Environmental Conservation Committees.  Voice your opposition and concerns to them.

Assembly Bill A00479
EnCon Chairman Englebright
Sponsor: Gunther
Co-Sponsors: Lupardo, Woerner, Brindisi, Miller B., Raia

Senate Bill S01386
EnCon Chairman O'Mara
Sponsor: Gallivan
Co-Sponsors: Akshar, Bonacic, Griffo, Helming,
Lanza, Little, Marchione, Ortt, Ritchie, Robach, Seward, Valesky

Please write a letter and protect the archery sesons.

The crossbow is already legal during the last two weeks of archery season, as well as the entire regular (firearms) season.  It is pre-cocked, pre-loaded, shouldered and fired like a rifle, and is capable of 100 yard shots.  Not archery in any sense or definition.

The latest ad for RAVIN Crossbows says it all:
"Meet your next rifle."

Light up the phones in Albany please.
