NEW YORK, March 7 (UPI) — The National Rifle Association’s field representative for New York and its suburbs was banned by a judge from possessing any of his 39 firearms for one year.

Richard D’Alauro, 62, pleaded guilty Oct. 3 to a harassment charge stemming from a Sept. 1, 2010, domestic incident with his wife at their Long Island home, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

D’Alauro, who was also charged with misdemeanor charges of assault and endangering the welfare of a child over the incident, admitted to Suffolk County Court Judge Toni Bean he intended to “harass, annoy or alarm” his wife “by subjecting her to physical contact.”

Bean issued a one-year order of protection against D’Alauro, which prohibits from owning or purchasing firearms for one year. Police said they had to make multiple visits to the NRA official’s home to round up all of his 39 firearms.

The NRA declined to comment on the case.

John Ray, D’Alauro’s attorney, said the protection order would not affect his client’s employment with the rifle association.

“The NRA does not require its employees to own guns,” he said.

    Being a staunch 2nd Amendment supporter and advocate, I’d say this guy got what he deserved. We all know (or should know) the rules. For whatever reason, he did something he shouldn’t have and now he must pay the consequences.

    I agree with LVS…had this guy not worked for the NRA, we would have never heard about this incident.

    So much for his “law abiding citizen” status. Proves “law abiding” doesn’t equate to “mentaly fit”.

    anyone convicted of any form of domestic violence should never be able to own or purchase a gun.
