Even the local cops don’t like the liberal feel good do nothing gun control crap …. The criminals go to gun free New York now, and leave us alone.

Breitbart reports …

Obama’s gun control bill may have gone down to stinging defeat in the Senate, but gun owners in New York weren’t so lucky. And you would think that New Yorkers, being virtually controlled by liberal Democrats, would welcome restrictions on their Second Amendment rights that were even too much for several Democratic U.S. Senators who opposed Obama’s bill.

But at least one faction of the Empire State’s citizenry – law enforcement – have been highly critical and outspoken about Governor Andrew Cuomo’s latest anti-gun effort.

The New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, known as the NY SAFE Act, passed by the New York legislature and signed into law by Mr. Cuomo in January, does all the things that Obama wanted to do, and more. It bans “high capacity” magazines, requires that ten round magazines may only be loaded with seven rounds outside of firing ranges and competitions, bans ownership of guns defined as “assault weapons,” and requires registration of arms and ammunition sales to the state government.

If that weren’t enough, the NY SAFE Act regulates gun storage and effectively makes criminals out of law-abiding gun owners who fail to report stolen weapons within 24 hours. It also forces people who have done nothing wrong to renew their pistol permits and assault weapons registrations every five years.

Cuomo boasts that it is the toughest gun law in the nation, but tries to downplay its effect on the rights of citizens by claiming that “for hunters, sportsmen, and law abiding gun owners, this new law preserves and protects your right to buy, sell, keep or use your guns.”

Cuomo: That gun law I signed turned out to be utterly unworkable, huh?

March 22, 2013

A dive from 74% approval to 24% has a way of clearing the head, no? Vote the jerk out.

If Andrew Cuomo has truly had an epiphany about his approach to gun regulation, it’s not really evident from this admission.  The New York Times reports that Cuomo will now try to rush some changes into his banner gun-control legislation that forced New York gun owners to use magazines that no one manufactures, with even the one exception to the rule found to be unworkable

Legal Insurrection writes:

In the wake of the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., Gov.Andrew M. Cuomo of New York pushed through the State Legislature gun control measures that included not only a tougher assault weapons ban but also a tighter restriction on the maximum legal capacity of gun magazines.

But after weeks of criticism from gun owners, Mr. Cuomo said on Wednesday that he would seek to ease the restriction, which he said had proved unworkable even before it was scheduled to take effect on April 15.

The gun-control law, approved in January, banned the sale of magazines that hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. But, Mr. Cuomo said Wednesday, seven-round magazines are not widely manufactured. And, although the new gun law provided an exemption for the use of 10-round magazines at firing ranges and competitions, it did not provide a legal way for gun owners to purchase such magazines.

Now, one might think that after having been embarrassed by his own ignorance — and in the face of a number of critics who pointed these issues out from the beginning — Cuomo would advise the legislature to repeal the bill and start over again.  One would be … wrong. This New York governor has decided to correct one idiocy with another, emphasis mine:

As a result, he said, he and legislative leaders were negotiating language that would continue to allow the sale of magazines holding up to 10 rounds, but still forbid New Yorkers from loading more than 7 rounds into those magazines.

Er, what? Will the police be around to check how many bullets are loaded into each magazine?  And, by the way, will criminals be deterred from loading rounds 8, 9, and 10 into the magazine?  The whole idea of magazine limits is to limit those with criminal intent from firing too many bullets without having to reload, at which point the law expects the disarmed to rush the criminal rather than shoot back and hope he’s worse at reloading than they will be at beating someone into submission. How will Cuomo’s latest idea deter criminals, who will have zero fear of having a gun inspection before committing their crimes?

Ok let’s get ready to rob a bank. Everybody check to see they don’t have more than 7 bullets loaded, right? Let’s do it … Don’t you see it?

Or why not this … if that kind of restriction was at all useful, then why pass a law forbidding 15-round or 30-round magazines at all? Just pass a law that says no one can load more than seven bullets into the magazine, and voila! Who knew how easy it was? Problem solved, right?

Poll: GOP NYers ditch Democrat Cuomo after gun

March 19, 2013

A poll shows New York Republican voters for the first time disapprove of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s performance following the Democrat’s push for a gun-control bill.

The Quinnipiac University poll finds 55% of Republican voters disapprove of Cuomo, with 27% approving of his job performance.

In December, 74% of Republicans approved of Cuomo’s performance.

In January, Cuomo presented a State of the State address that included a more liberal policy agenda. Cuomo’s goals include a women’s agenda with a strengthening of abortion laws.

Cuomo has a 49% approval among independent voters. Sixty-nine percent of Democrats approve of his performance two years into the job.

The poll questioned 1,165 votes March 11 through Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9%age points.

New York Courts Are Likely to Get Last Word On Gun Control

March 4, 2013

It’s a Civil Right in New York’s Constitution … New York has their Constitutional right assigned as a Civil Right.

The New York attorney general’s office is due before the state Supreme Court next month to defend the constitutionality of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s tough new gun control package, and two separate appellate courts recently issued opposing opinions on whether the Second Amendment guarantees the right to carry a concealed weapon in public.

Mr. Cuomo signed sweeping gun control measures into law in January that included a beefed-up ban on so-called assault weapons and a limit on magazine capacity to a maximum of seven rounds of ammunition — even less than the 10-round limit proposed by President Obama. But Buffalo lawyer James Tresmond — with the backing of the National Rifle Association and other gun rights groups — is arguing on behalf of two gun owners that the law amounts to an unconstitutional seizure of property under the Fifth and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

State Supreme CourtJustice Diane Devlin has ordered the state to show cause by April 25 — when oral arguments are scheduled — though the state attorney general’s office plans to respond by mid-March. Mr. Tresmond also has represented a gun dealer in a separate case challenging the law, with a hearing set for late April.

Illinois concealed carry…

Farther west, in another state with stringent gun laws, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit denied a petition last month to rehear a December ruling that declared an Illinois law prohibiting people from carrying concealed handguns in public unconstitutional.

“There is no suggestion that some unique characteristic of criminal activity in Illinois justifies the state’s taking a different approach from the other 49 states,” Judge Richard A. Posner wrote in the opinion. “If the Illinois approach were demonstrably superior, one would expect at least one or two other states to have emulated it.”


NRA Holds Massive Rally in NY to Protest State’s Restrictive Gun Laws

March 1, 2013

The National Rifle Association on Thursday held a massive rally in Albany, N.Y. to protest the Empire State’s restrictive gun laws signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in January. The state’s massive gun control package gave New York the strictest gun laws in the United States.

On some counts people get what they vote for, you vote for dummies, why be surprised with you get a bunch of libturd Democrats. And New York has been just full of them for some time.

Will Gun Control Become Obsolete?

February 14, 2013

There is a revolution afoot, and it’s technology based. Read on to understand what I mean.

What was once an engineers prototyping machine, is now a consumer replicator.

Imagine being able to download gun parts, and perhaps even an entire gun, from the internet and print it out in your home.

Meet the “Cuomo.” It’s a new printed magazine for your AR-15 rifle, soon to be available for download, and it holds 30 bullets. Upgrading an earlier design that didn’t hold up particularly well after extended use, it’s an unsubtle rejoinder to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who recently signed a magazine-restriction law limiting mags to seven rounds. Defense Distributed is basically saying that if you’re not going to be allowed to buy larger magazines in the near future, you can print them yourself — if, that is, 3-D printed weapons don’t fall into legislators’ own crosshairs.

In recent tests at a gun range near Austin, Texas, Defense Distributed fired a total of 342 rounds using the magazine with no issues, according to the group’s founder, Cody Wilson. The group fired 227 of those rounds using full automatic fire, while swapping out the barrels on the rifle to keep them cool. The group also uploaded a promotional video, seen above, demonstrating a portion of the test.

If you’re thinking this sounds absurd, consider that companies are already making and marketing consumer-grade 3D printersThey’re expensive, but not out of reach for most Americans.

I’d like to think that something like a 3D printer could make gun control obsolete, but if this catches on it’ll probably be all the excuse the government needs to restrict 3D printers. Oh, wait, that’s already happening:

Last month, Rep. Steve Israel of New York called for 3-D printed magazines to be banned. More broadly, magazines of more than 10 rounds were restricted until the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban expired in 2004. New York’s recent law banning magazines greater than seven rounds would also make Wilson’s magazine illegal — but difficult to control if getting one is as simple as printing it off the internet.

We can’t let people be too free lest they hurt themselves with all that freedom.

“Who Are The Police At War With?”

February 4, 2013

If these gun owners of western New York attending an information meeting in Buffalo on the NY-SAFE gun law are any indication, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has opened a huge can of worms that will have all sorts of unintended consequences. Who would have ever thought there would be talk of armed militias in an overwhelmingly blue state like New York?

I guess the sheep are not going to la down and take this crap… I wonder when Remington packs up and heads for a state which appreciates them. Ithaca did.
