There is a petition circulating that aims to prevent New York from putting an end to gun raffles in New York State.

Gun raffles are the main fundraiser for many organizations and would no longer be held if the laws are changed.

NY Senator Robert Ortt has the following statement to begin the petition on his website:

I am proud to stand with Senator Rob Ortt in support of gun raffles. These raffles provide vital funding for our local volunteer fire departments, sportsmen clubs, charities, boy scouts, and more.
