Ban alcohol, ban pharmaceutical drugs, ban poisons.......these kill more each year (not combined!). Why isn't he or Obama up in arms over these horrible killers of innocent lives??
The measure also calls for restrictions on ammunition and the sale of guns. It is expected to pass Tuesday. So the law abiding citizens are limited? Seems smart to me
"This is not about taking anyone's rights away," said Sen. Jeffrey Klein, a Bronx Democrat. "It's about a safe society ... today we are setting the mark for the rest of the county to do what's right." This is EXACTLY what it is about and what it is...taking away rights. Rights that tons of blood was spilled for. You and your democrat party want just that. Control and limit the people.....period. Healthcare, weapons....its all there.
DO whats right? For who? Certainly not the American people. When these politicians start deciding what they thing is right for the American people......we are doomed. Look at out debt..........are/have they been doing the people right by that?
Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two "military rifle" features, such as folding stock, muzzle flash suppressor or bayonet mount. The proposal would reduce that to one feature, including the popular pistol grip. The language specifically targeted the military-style rifle used in the Newtown shootings. Military assault weapons? Really? I thought military "assault" weapons were automatic firing capabilties? These are already banned correct? So what is an citizens "assault weapon"? As mentioned.....appearence? ability to have a magazine and not one shot?? I do love the ignorance of the same rifle, same caliber, but if one has a pistol grip..............its an assault weapon and the other is legal
Current owners of those guns will have to register them. This is only the beginning of the governments deep intrusion of our lives. I've read and heard there are provisions where you can't pass a weapon onto a family member, that you have to re-register every 2 -5 years. Dr's will again be on the forefront for documenting weapons at homes, where they are stored etc..... Will confiscations take place if you don't register? By armed personnel? This is so ugly and intrusive its beyond belief........yet its happening. Whats next? Who you have sex with, when, how often...........be sure to register.
Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current 10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge. LOL
In another provision, a therapist who believes a mental health patient made a credible threat to use a gun illegally would be required to report it to a mental health director who would have to notify the state. A patient's gun could be taken from him or her. Uhm, isn't this already required in all states? If a mental health person things a person is a danger to himself of others...........they call police.
The legislation also increases sentences for gun crimes including the shooting of a first responder that Cuomo called the "Webster provision." Last month in the western New York town of Webster, two firefighters were killed after responding to a fire set by the shooter, who eventually killed himself. This is good.But (nothing against FF JPH) but why shouldn't this law of increased sentences be for ALLLLL gun crimes not just FF??? Because its a pro-union vote pandering tactic having it worded that way??
Republican Sen. Greg Ball called that political opportunism in a rare criticism of the popular and powerful governor seen by his supporters as a possible candidate for president in 2016. He certainly nailed that

This whole argument makes no sense from a practical standpoint. It's all about limiting bit by bit the 2A freedoms that we still do have. If they can make it 7, then they can make it 1...or NONE.
Same as Obama. Why are his kids more important?
Your talking about the liberal left..............they do not factor sense (common or otherwise) into conversations, they do things based on how it makes them feel.
2A freedoms............its only the start
