The Problem For Gun Control Advocates Is That They Keep Promising That No Way Will Registration Lead To Confiscation Of Firearms, Even As It Does Just That.

 

 

 

 

” The problem for gun control advocates is that they keep promising that no way will registration lead to confiscation of firearms, even as it does just that. The Brady Campaign’s Dennis A. Henigan accuses the National Rifle Association of peddling “fear” for even raising the possibility. In the New York Times, Charles Blow calls such concerns “cultural paranoia.”

  Yet gun owners seem to have legitimate worries. Hundreds of New York City residents are receiving, and publicizing, letters demanding the surrender, not of scary “assault weapons,” whatever arbitrary definition may locally apply to that slippery term, but of target rifles and cowboy guns. Among the forbidden items gleaned from New York City registration lists and ordered to be surrendered or removed from city limits are the bolt-action Marlin 25N, and lever-action Browning 92 and Winchester 94 rifles. Semi-automatic rifles of the plinking variety, such as the AR-7, have been targeted, too.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gov. Cuomo Set To Announce 25-Member Panel To Probe Corruption

 

 

 

 

” Gov. Cuomo tomorrow is set to drop his biggest hammer on the scandal-scarred state Legislature.

Cuomo is ready to follow through on his long-standing threat to create a special commission to investigate legislative corruption.

The much anticipated move comes after the Legislature failed to take up Cuomo’s anti-corruption package unveiled after a spate of scandals earlier this year led to several lawmaker arrests.

The 25-member bipartisan panel will have subpoena power and will be packed with law enforcement officials–including nearly a dozen district attorneys. Bronx DA Robert Johnson is among them, sources said.

It also will include former interim US attorney Benito Romano, who also served as chief of the corruption unit under then US Attorney Rudy Giuliani, the sources said.

The panel will be co-chaired by Nassau County DA Kathleen Rice, Syracuse District Attorney William Fitzpatrick, and Milton Williams Jr., chair of the Fund For Modern Courts.”

NY Sheriffs Join Together To Sue Gov. Cuomo For Infringing Gun Rights

 

 

” Sheriffs are so concerned about enforcement issues, that the New York State Sheriffs’ Association, along with five individually named sheriffs, is planning to support a lawsuit that the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. filed against Governor Cuomo.

 “It’s an unenforceable law. I believe it will ultimately be declared to be unconstitutional.”

As far as Howard and his fellow sheriffs are concerned, existing laws provided sheriffs and the public with all the protection they need against gun crimes.”

Clarence NY Town Hall

 

 

” Clarence, NY (WKBW) – A question and answer session on New York’s new gun law turned testy, as gun owners unleash a fury of anger on the new legislation.

Frustration boiled over for people who feel as though they are law abiding citizens, being turned into criminals.

For many, it was a chance to vent anger at Albany.

One WNYer even said “You put a brown shirt on Mr. Cuomo and put him on television, he would look just like Hitler.”

Another chimed in, “Angry people get together, they form militias folks. This country, this WNY is prime for something like that!”
