Hollywood in NY - Heads Up, New York!

Recommended Posts

Looks like there may be a push to exempt the entertainment industry from the draconian laws recently passed in NY State. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/02/nyregion/studios-fret-that-new-yorks-gun-laws-could-hamper-film-production.html?smid=pl-share&_r=1&

 


Officials in the movie and television industry say the new laws could
prevent them from using the lifelike assault weapons and high-capacity
magazines that they have employed in shows like “Law & Order:
Special Victims Unit” and films like “The Dark Knight Rises.”


Twenty-seven film and television projects, including programs like “Blue
Bloods” and “Person of Interest,” are now in production in New York
State using assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, according to
the Motion Picture Association of America.
Industry workers say that they need to use real weapons for
verisimilitude, that it would be impractical to try to manufacture fake
weapons that could fire blanks, and that the entertainment industry
should not be penalized accidentally by a law intended as a response to
mass shootings
.

 

Call your reps and tell them "HELL NO!" There should be no special rules for them.
