NRA: NY´s quick gun law
passage nixed opposition

Associated Press, by Staff

ALBANY, N.Y. — The National Rifle Association says the secret negotiations and lightning-fast passage of New York’s tough new gun control laws squelched the powerful gun lobby’s ability to mount opposition. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he had to engineer quick enactment to prevent a counterproductive buying spree of now-outlawed guns. The legislation was introduced and signed into law in less than two days.

Comments:
Democracy, brought to you by today´s Democratic (sic) party.

I watched this as it happened!

Of course, the AP deliberately omits these facts.

The bill spent 20 minutes in the rules committee, as these kleptocrats laughed and giggled before pushing the bill to the floor of the NY State Senate where it was voted on before the stroke of midnight without any opportunity for the citizens of New York to see the bill and without ANY DEBATE! The next day it went to the Democrat state Assembly and rubber stamped.

It was all there for everyone to see on the state´s streaming video system.

I am not making this up.

To call these the machinations of a banana republic would be an insult to banana republics everywhere!

This is not law making, this is tyranny.

More likely the GOP in the NY legislature threw gun-owners under the bus to preserve their nominal control of the NY Senate.

Think of all the sales taxes that will be rung up in surrounding states in which NY residents have vacation property.

They passed this in the dark of the night and soon that three o´clock pounding on the door may be the Secret Police. The Left thinks the time has come to take off the mask. When will folks see the Children of Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Castro occupying the Democrat Party. Dictatorship coming to a state near you. All pretense is off. Voice your opinions here, but be aware we are probably already being monitored.

All they did was create a black market for the guns and magazines that they banned. New Yorkers who wish to purchase those items can easily leave the State and purchase them elsewhere. When millions of people have those items already, how are they ever going to prove when and where a magazine was purchased?

This is just another instance of the liberal Democrats taking away the rights of law abiding citizens because of the criminally insane acts of a few dangerous mental cases.

I can´t see Cuomo ever getting the votes that he would need outside of New York to get elected President in 2016.

I just heard Mark Levin say that these geniuses forgot to exempt police from the law, and as it is wriitn now, police will be in violation of the new law because most of their weapons hold 15 rounds.

re: Police Exemption

This is why public review and debate is needed. Politicians are writing laws about subjects they know nothing about.

Which begs the question, why are the police privileged enough use magazines that hold more than seven rounds?

A far better case can be made that police should be limited to 7 rounds, while civlians should not. A civilian or homeowner doesn´t have the benefit of a dispatcher calling him to tell him trouble is on his way. Nor does a civilian or homeowner have the benefit of a whole army of folks in blue dropping everything and coming to their assistance with arms when they are confronted with an armed criminal.

Ever go to a rifle and pistol range to see rank & file police officers shoot in the NY metropolitan area? I have done that plenty over the past 20 years, and I can say with a fairly high degree of confidence that most gun owners can outshoot at least 75% of the rank & file police force.

Given the performance of the NYPD over the years, I would trust most any civilian to shoot straight and true at a bad guy far more so than your average cop.

People who do not live in or know the state of New York, should not confuse what goes on in NYC and Albany with the rest of the state.

People are outraged at how this went down.

NYC is almost a state unto itself, and if it fell off into the ocean, the rest of the state wouldn´t miss it one bit.

So what #1? Most of those idiots live in NYC and like a typical big mouth from that city, they have NO idea what they are talking about. An inept Sec of HUD who lost billions with zero accountability is leading hordes of the low information morons around by their nose. The sheeple have no idea what is required to get a NY permit to own a legal handgun, because 12 million of them can´t. Cuomo might be popular with them, but he might also be insane. I heard him tell a reporter that one of the reasons for coming up with the magic number 7 per magazine, besides screwing most pistol owners, is that if a criminal ´grabs´ your gun, he can do less damage with 7 bullets. I think the thug meant it. He might actually believe it. The arbitrary law will be challenged and perhaps someone can toss a sanity test in there for the Gov before he hurts himself or others. Cuomo was really working himself into a frenzy on the confiscation angle. Breaking down doors might be ´popular´ with a surprising number of NYC sheeple, but we will see how all this plays out.

#2, that´s business as usual in New York State.

The saying in New York is that three men in a room run everything in Albany. That´s what democrat rule amounts to.

All you posters have NY down to a T. Cuomo is a pathelogical liar. He´s bragging all over that he capped property taxes. Guess what? Some things are exempt from the cap, like pension contributions which are bankrupting the counties.

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement. This short document outlined no specific threats, but rather a set of

Maryland health officials are investigating possible cases of food poisoning at what may be the worst-ever venue — a gathering of government and industry leaders attending a national Food Safety Summit. At least four people called the Baltimore City Health Department this week to report that they developed diarrhea, nausea and other symptoms about 12 hours after eating a meal April 9 during the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

Russia and Ukraine struck a deal Thursday to end unrest in eastern Ukraine stoked by pro-Russian militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

DENVER — Authorities say a Wyoming college student who jumped to his death from a Denver hotel balcony ate more than the recommended serving of a marijuana cookie. Police reports released Thursday said 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi consumed a little more than one cookie that his friend purchased from a pot shop. The reports say a clerk told his friends to cut it into six pieces and eat one piece at a time. The friends did so, but it´s unclear from the reports whether Pongi heard the advice.

On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago police said. So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it -- and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said. This "is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!" he would later allegedly tell the cops, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
