Things just got even more interesting today as NOW EFFECTIVE TODAY AT NOON, Ben is no longer employed and Fired (from a job he has been at since before Brooke was born 5 yrs ago last wk) because of this conviction of the felonies and to "preserve the company image" for the companies investors, they have "no choice/ hands are tied" and have been advised by their lawyers that they cant have him employed anymore.
So, THANK YOU JJ's for turning in a COMPLETELY NY STATE SAFE Act compliant weapon and turning our lives into a spiral out of control... I wonder if I should forward my mortgage, medical bills and normal living supplies (like diaper and milk for our baby) to JJ's... I dont even know what to do at this point... :( :( :(

Ben was just railroaded by NYS & the SAFE Act, his legal fees are well over $30,000 by now, and still have to fight the appeal. He was convicted UNDER THE SAFE ACT, regardless of what the media is portraying, they wanted no community support during trial and well they got that... :( If we do not stand up for our rights we will never have them, its just a matter of time before they come for you next. JJ Guns started this STATE ran Sting Operation with turning in a HERO, my hero and yours... with a COMPLETELY 'NYS SAFE ACT' LEGAL weapon not the one Ben was even on trial for or even one that was for sale (it was already sold out of state)!! Schniederman went on record with chautauquatoday.com refering to Ben as "a clear message" for "New Yorkers to be held accountable".
New York State has made my Hero a Criminal on 3 counts of felony weapon charges made illegal by the SAFE Act yesterday... we have to fight united to maintain our rights!! The sentencing and appeal process will start May 12th at 930am.
Please share and donate if you can, thank you to those of you that have already done so and kept us in your prayers. We unfortunately need more prayers and support to continue this fight for our not only 2nd amendment but the 4th too... for those of you in court you know why I say that.. taking MY legally permitted weapons leaving me defenseless for my family without a warrant, entering my home waking my child and making her cry... without stepping up and helping us to fight this, you could be next... :(

Thank you everyone for your support. Please help spread the word... This is truly a fight for our 2nd amendment rights. Remember the Bill of Rights does not GIVE us those rights, they defined and secured our God given rights to Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness... Trial Jury Selection starts THIS Tuesday, the 4th @ 10am at the Chautauqua County Courthouse in Mayville, the trial will follow after the 12 Jury members are selected.

Ben Wassell, (my beloved husband and father to both of our beautiful children, daughter aged 4 and son aged 4 months) is the first man charged with violating the unconstitutional SAFE Act Gun Law here in New York State.

My husband is a well decorated, two tour Iraq war veteran and from his almost 8 ½ yrs of service he is currently 90% service-connected disabled. He suffered a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) from being blown up while serving in active duty in Iraq in 2006. There is no surgery or any medical way to fix this injury which he sustained while serving his country, protecting OUR freedoms.

My husband is being made an example in this prosecution. Ben has no criminal history. In time, his true character will become evident.

Ben is being prosecuted by the New York State Attorney General’s office. Any donations collected through this fund will be used to pay for my husband to have the BEST defense attorneys possible to fight for his rights, mine, and yours.

Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.

I'm unemployed right now or I'd donate more to your legal fund, not to mention that unfortunately I'm going through my own battle with the treasonous governor and his "safe act". I wish you and your family all the best ... god bless and keep your powder dry, Dan Gesegnet

Mr. Al Rotundo is also a liberal trolling single scooter riding niagra resident that took used a stupid facebook meme quote to use as his own on his post. Has no regard for the rights of the man this donate page is about as he uses his free speech to spread this liberal garbage and his fourth amendment rights are very well protected...he just needs to learn how to change the security on his FB page.

yeah but it ABSOLUTLEY GUARANTEES not "entitles" you to the right to have the same weaponry as your infantry and police. The RIGHT was written in as the 2nd to protect your RIGHT to DEFEND your other RIGHTS from being taken advantage of. When they said "militia" "free" "shall not be infringed" that is what the were talking about. Plus the new law is completely cosmetic features which idiots can't see past a polymer stock...

The constitution stipulates that folks have the right to bear arms. These arms should be of the caliber and style needed to defend against a rouge government and it's representatives. Take this to the Supreme Court.
