NY Passes Nation´s
Toughest Gun Control Law

Associated Press, by Michael Gormley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2013 9:15:57 AM

New York lawmakers agreed to pass the toughest gun control law in the nation and the first since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, calling for a tougher assault weapons ban and provisions to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill who make threats. "This is a scourge on society," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday night, six days after making gun control a centerpiece of his progressive agenda in his State of the State address. The bipartisan effort was fueled by the Newton tragedy that took the lives of 20 first graders and six educators.

Why are our politicians going after rifles when the Newton shooting was done with a handgun?

Oh, wait, never let a crisis go to waste!

Silly me.

cuomo has absolutely no moral authority. This is the same guy who lost $56 billion when he was HUD secretary. Does any reasonable person believe a GOP HUD secretary who lost $56 billion would not be in jail, let alone be considered a frontrunner for President in 2016? The banana republic status of the USA has been attained.

This will be a good test case for Heller, which left the door open for "reasonable restrictions", and also stated that government could not outlaw an entire class of weapons in "common usage".

The majority of guns sold in this country have magazine capacities greater than seven. Will this pass constitutional muster? Is this "reasonable"?

And yet another major piece of legislation effecting millions of citizens drafted behind closed doors and voted into law minutes after being handed to legislators. As all such prudent intelligent and important legislation enacted in this manner this will work splendidly exactly as the elitist Mugabe wannbes envision.

WHo needs a messy floor debate, or worse, a public debate where the unwashed mouthbreathers get to clutter up the process with their worthless drooling incoherent "arguments". Far far better, and more effective to act for these poor wretches, it is after all governments duty to take care of the little people. They just don´t know whats good for them. Poor little children.

That so many "republicans" went for this monstrosity is more than disturbing. They have just given the MSM their screeching point for the next year or two. Get used to hearing "supported by an overwhelming majority of Republicans" every time Obamas gunn grabbing effort are discussed.

FTA: "..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…."

First the magic number was ´ten.´ Now it´s ´seven.´ Next time it will be ´five.´ Eventually it will be ´one.´ Now it´s a misdemeanor. Soon it will be a felony.
After magazine size it will be ´caliber.´ "No larger than a .38." "No larger than a .32." "No larger than a .22 cal."

"No one is allowed to have in their personal possession any weapon with a magazine or capable of firing a bullet larger than .22 cal., under penalty of law. Persons in violation of this act will be charged with felony possession of an illegal firearm."

The final act will be "All persons owning any firearm is hereby ordered, under penalty of law, to turn in said weapon at your local police or sheriff´s office. There is a ten day window of compliance, after which any holders of any firearms will be subject to a prison term of ten years and a fine of $100,000."

I think they are knee jerk liberal do nothing answers except for the reporting of crazy people so their guns can be confiscated. That´s fine as long as we get to decide who the therapist is, and they are not on the government payroll. It still wouldn´t have done anything to stop lanza who supposedly stole his guns from his overprotective mother. Now that newspapers have taken it upon themselves to encourage gun theft, the playing surface has certainly changed, and these laws will be of no effect. As far as getting a misdemeanor fine after using 10 rounds to protect my home, I´ll pay.

#1- The shooter committed suicide with a handgun. He shot all 20 children and 6 adults in the school with a Bushmaster, NOT a handgun. That has been reported over and over by the police and the medical examiner who did the autopsies since 3 days after the event. The children were all shot from 3 to 11 times and it took just a matter of minutes.

Incredible--they´ve banned posession of the 1911. Come to think of it, my 1963-vintage Winchester Model 77 .22 rifle is now set to be illegal in NY--it´s a squirrel gun, for Pete´s sake. In fact, I expect there are very, very few current semi-autos of any stripe with a standard capacity of seven or less. Does a revolver cylinder count as a "magazine"--there are several 8- or 9-shot .22 revolvers out there. What kind of Republican says this lunacy "protects the Second Amendment"?

Expect NY to re-define mental illness as an interest in guns. Those people with that mental defect will have their guns seized for the safety of themselves and their neighbors. In New York utopia is just around the corner.

Sorry for the double post, buy i had a second thought--does this idiocy cover handguns or is it limited to long guns? Article doesn´t say specifically. It´s still a travesty either way--my little sqirrel rifle is now an illegal "assault weapon" in NY State.

#18 No, the 1911 (at least in its most common configuration) was spared since it has a 7-round magazine. My original thought was that this seemingly arbitrary number was chosen in part to placate Kimber, who makes 1911s and is headquartered in Yonkers.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
