If you live in New York, Your State legislators have just declared open season on all law abiding gun owners.
In a late night session, New York Legislators passed the most draconian gun bill in the nation with a vote of 43 to 18.The bill, which expands the state’s ban on so called “assault weapons”, has a number of even more troubling provisions that should scare the hell out of any freedom loving people.
The Bill, which goes before the full assembly today, is expected to overwhelmingly pass the assembly after it sailed through the State Senate late last night.
The Bill sets up the following measures in New York:
An expanded ban on assault weapons that broadens the definition to include semiautomatic pistols and rifles with detachable magazines and one “military-style feature”.
It Forces gun owners to renew their licenses every five years.
Bans semiautomatic shotguns with one military-style feature.
Bans any gun magazine that can hold over 7 rounds of ammunition.
Requires anyone with these weapons to immediately register them with the state.
In my opinion, the scariest part of this bill is what they are calling the Mental Hygiene Law. The bill allows healthcare workers to essentially turn in anyone they think is a danger to society. This means health care workers will now be able to decide who keeps their guns, and who has to turn them in. Say one thing wrong, or one thing that might be a little politically incorrect, and depending on the healthcare worker you could be in for a world of trouble.
Once a healthcare worker reports an individual, New York laws enforcement agents will then be authorized to confiscate any firearm owned by the “dangerous patient”. The bill also gives New York officials more power to commit these so called “dangerous patients” into mental facilities.
I will say with the hysteria against firearms, that any and every crime committed by any one who uses a fire arm, the legislators who want to ban those should appear on a legal complaint as an accessory to the crime committed by the felon or defendant who committed the offense. This should be done because they, the legislators backed legislation which allowed citizens not to have or, not to be able to fight back. So we sue the bastards by name, drag them into the courts make them defend their actions which led to rape, mayhem, robbery, murder and other criminal behavior!
Individual liberty in New York has been destroyed, by egotistical politicians, who think they know better than our Founding Fathers!! Just wait until the next EVIL GUN decides to commit mass murder again!!!! Then these pin heads will go back to their drawing boards and craft an even more draconian set of laws!! When all that is needed is for citizens of good character to be allowed to arm themselves with either a concealed carry permit or open carry of a side arm of their choice!!!!!
As I pointed out long time ago, the Government has no means to confiscate the guns with one strike of the pen at the same time through all territory of USA. It will be done piece by piece. Now New York, next time another county or state. Starting with individuals. By the time the population will try to react, they will find out, that there is just clubs and stones to defend themselves.
Is not “military-style feature” even the toy guns for our pre-school boys?
