NY Safe Act: An Assault on the US Constitution

New York on Tuesday became the first state in the nation to pass a victim disarmament bill since the Newtown massacre one month ago… Supporters are haling it as the most comprehensive gun bill in the country…

I am proud to be a New Yorker today,” said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo before huddling together with lawmakers and members of law enforcement as he signed the bill into law. “I am proud to be part of this government not because New York has the first bill but because New York has the best bill.”

Passage came less than a week after Cuomo pushed the Legislature to “end the madness,” referring to recent shootings, including a fatal shooting on Christmas Eve in upstate New York that claimed the lives of two firefighters…

Cuomo, who hasn’t missed an opportunity to remind the public that he’s a gun owner himself, said the bill isn’t about limiting American’s Second Amendment right but to protect the public from dangerous individuals, including those with mental illness…

We saw, we learned, we responded and we acted!

The legislation, dubbed NY Safe Act, calls for an immediate ban on assault weapons and makes New York the first state in the nation to ban all pre-1994 high-capacity magazines and any magazine that can hold more than seven rounds. (The previous limit was 10.)

High-capacity magazines that enable people to kill a large number of people in a short period of time are “nonsensical” for a civilized society, Cuomo said…

The measure passed the assembly 104-43 one day after the State Senate overwhelmingly approved the bill by a vote of 43 to 18…

Gloversville, New York mayor Dayton King has come out strongly against the new gun laws, predicting that they will lead to a ‘Waco-Style’ standoff between law abiding New Yorkers and ‘the law’ attempting to take their guns away from them…

Most people are law-abiding citizens and may go ahead and sell those or turn those over, but you’re going to have a fraction of people that are going to take a stand, and I can just predict a Waco-style standoff in some rural area and it’s not going to end well.

President Obama on Wednesday announced his support for new bans on “military-style assault weapons“… Critics say the term is misleading and based on cosmetics and not carnage or crime…

The number one myth is these are machine guns. They’re not machine guns. They’re semi-auto, meaning I pull the trigger one time, I get one bullet,” said Jeff Serdy of AJI Sporting Goods near Phoenix…

The features that allow these guns to qualify as “assault” weapons have little to do with how deadly they are… They include “a telescoping stock, pistol grip, ability to accept a magazine, and a flash-hider.

This AR-15 is no more dangerous than this hunting rifle which is used for woodchucks all across the East.

It may sound radical to many ‘modern‘ Americans who do not understand the true nature of evil, but you cannot “prevent” all evil by disarming responsible law abiding citizens… Government officials see a strategic opportunity to un-arm a public they strive at record breaking levels to arm themselves against…

The founders wrote the second amendment precisely because they recognized that sometimes the only way to stop evil is to shoot…
