The link above was also on the NRA's Facebook wall, along with plenty of others on the same subject.
If you're not in New York, the idea below is still a good way to become active on this issue. I copied and pasted it from the American Resistance Movement's Facebook status
NEW YORK FIREARMS BAN!
New York State has positioned itself to pass the most draconian gun laws in the nation. Governor Cuomo is pressing hard to push these bills through. Without a majority in the State Senate to block these measures; their passage is a very real possibility. I am asking everybody to forward all communications to concerned citizens on their contact lists and ask them to contact their legislators. Time is short and the consequences of inaction are unacceptable. These bills, with the Governor pushing for confiscation or a permit system for Modern Sporting Rifles, represent the biggest threats we have faced since 1968. You cannot relax if you do not own one of these rifles because they will divide and separate us. Your firearms are next on their list, if they succeed here. We cannot fight this battle alone. This is your call to action. Your participation is no guarantee that we will win this important fight to protect your Constitutional rights, but we can say with certainty that anything short of overwhelming our legislators with calls, emails and letters we have virtually no chance. Truth is the only thing that really motivates most legislators is their next election and by contacting your legislators and letting them know that your vote depends on their support is crucial. I am doing everything within my power to defend your rights, but remember we are all in this together. Here is the ACTION PLAN: Forward this to your friends contacts and associates. Spread the word on forums like NY Firearms, with 6600 members, or USA Carry with 45000 members, or AR15.com with their 11,000 members etc. share on Facebook etc. Pass this to at least 10 people that you know and plan to make some phone calls on Monday and Tuesday!
The Governors State of the State Speech planned for Wednesday January 9 at 1:30 PM. Gun owners, their families, friends and supporters of the Constitution need to invest a few minutes of their time and make some phone calls. On Monday and/or Tuesday of this week, prior to the State of the State Address, Call the Governor’s Office (518) 474-8390– AND LEAVE THIS MESSAGE: "I am a law abiding, tax paying, voting, citizen of New York State and I strongly urge you not to impose any further restrictions, laws or regulations on my Second Amendment Rights as granted by the United States Constitution". Then you call Senate Leader Skelos and Klein and leave the same message. Then you call Assembly Leader Silver and leave the same message. Please make these phone call messages to our ELECTED representatives. If the trunk lines into the capital become overloaded with call volume then so be it......this is the goal. WE MUST BE HEARD.
While waiting, you can also access their respective web sites and voice your concern through email message. Write the same message as above or add your own but be civil. All phone numbers and links are listed below.

Read this article so you can understand what the power structure is this term. Call these IDC members which include: Senators Diane Savino, David Valesky, David Carlucci, and Malcolm Smith. Jeff Klein is in the lead. He's working with Skelos as co-majority leader of sorts. These five along with our Republican friends are gun owners only hope.

Thanks for the heads-up, Jeff. This is a huge issue, and I hope more people wake up and realize that we are all imminently less-safe in a world without our freedom to keep and bear arms.
Yeah, people are only paying attention to the 90% of the media that's owned by six people who also own the politicians. Have you read the wording of the NDAA? We pretty much don't have a bill of rights anymore.
