ALBANY — New York State Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King issued a press release mocking the SAFE Act registration numbers released by New York on Tuesday.

The state released the statistics a day earlier showing that since the law went into effect in January 2013, a total of 23,847 people have applied to register their newly defined assault-style weapons. In all 44,485 weapons have been registered.

"I am amused at the pathetically low numbers of New Yorkers who registered their so-called assault rifles," King said. "The number of individuals who registered their guns is 24,000 and many of these are law-enforcement officials mandated to comply by their department. In short, New Yorkers have, by their lack of compliance, effectively repealed a portion of the NY SAFE Act. Congratulations to the gun owners of New York State."

"The NY SAFE Act is a blatant violation of our specifically enumerated Constitutional freedom, period. I am proud of the comprehensive litigation that NYSRPA has filed with the help and support of the NRA to overturn this deeply-flawed law. New York gun owners know it is flawed and they are not complying with it. I am confident that we will ultimately prevail in getting significant portions of the law overturned in the courts."
