ALBANY, NY (01/22/2012)(readMedia)-- The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association applauds Governor Cuomo's proposal to scrap the Combined Ballistic Identification System (CoBIS).

"By any rational measure, CoBIS has been a total failure," said NYSRPA President Tom King. "What is astounding is that there are actually elected officials defending it. Only in Albany would you find people who think that a program which has run for more than 10 years without producing a single result is good public policy."
NYSRPA strongly encourages the legislature to put an end to this farce and pass A-1131/S-459.
