N.Y. gun law mandates magazines that don’t exist

February 27, 2013 Leave a comment

TWG: Here is what I suggest……

ALL law abiding gun owners should leave every State that has imposed this senseless, anti-Bill of Rights gun grab. 

Just move and let all the gangs, bath salt zombies, islamics, illegal aliens and rapists gobble up all the gun grabbing marxists, socialists, progressives, liberals, communists and democrats .

It’s called a courtesy flush.

SHAZAM – Problem solved. When the rubble, bodies and ashes are all cleaned up, you can return to your State.

Have a safe trip. Maybe you can spend some time somewhere sunny and warm while your Home State is cleared of these beasts.

N.Y. gun law mandates magazines that don’t exist

ROCHESTER — Starting April 15, New York will have the smallest gun magazine limit in the country, and all signs indicate no gun makers have plans to accommodate it.

Gun manufacturers have never had a reason to make a magazine with fewer than 10 rounds, because no state required it until now. And, as far as local gun dealers and the Democrat and Chronicle have been able to determine, there are no manufacturers planning to make seven-round magazines.

This means that in less than two months, gun dealers such as Paul Martin, owner of Pro-Gun Services in Victor, can only sell something that doesn’t exist yet.

“There was never a need for a (seven-round magazine),” Martin said. “Not many manufacturers are going to bother to make something just for the state of New York.”

The New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, passed in January, says gun dealers cannot sell magazines with more than seven rounds beginning April 15. However, three gun dealers in the Rochester area say manufacturers don’t make a seven-round magazine for most guns, and several manufacturers don’t disagree. This leaves store owners wondering what they are going to sell.

“Can you realistically expect a company that’s huge to gear up and say, ‘Let’s make something for those poor suckers in New York because they’ve got a bad law,’” said Fred Calcagno, owner of American Sportsman in East Rochester.

Before, New Yorkers could use 10-round magazines, and higher-capacity magazines made before 1994. The new law immediately banned the higher-capacity magazines. Residents can continue to use 10-round magazines, but can only load seven bullets.

“Sorry, NY, Andy says no,” reads a handwritten sticker referring to Gov. Andrew Cuomo that adorns a pre-1994 15-round magazine in a showcase at Pro-Gun Services.

The Democrat and Chronicle reached out to a dozen gun and accessory manufacturers to find out whether they would produce smaller magazines, including Remington, Smith and Wesson, Pro Mag Industries and Brownells. Most did not respond. A few provided written statements that did not indicate any plans for New York one way or another. Glock had no comment. Only one gave a clear-cut answer.

N.Y. bill would force gun owners to buy at least $1M in insurance

February 19, 2013 2 comments

Posted on: February 19th, 2013

A bill introduced in the New York State Assembly by Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, a Democrat, would require the state’s residents to acquire liability insurance as a condition for gun ownership.

“Any person in this state who shall own a firearm shall, prior to such ownership, obtain and continuously maintain a policy of liability insurance in an amount not less than one million dollars specifically covering any damages resulting from any negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person,” the measure, dubbed S2353, reads.

Any person who has not purchased insurance in compliance with the law within 30 days of its passing would be in violation of the law.

Never letting a good crisis go to waste, New York passed the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation in response to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Not only are semiautomatic rifles such as the popular AR-15 banned, but citizens who own handguns are limited to only seven bullets.

These law-abiding, gun owning Citizens have had enough!

Looting and Robberies Amongst The Hurricane Sandy Turmoil

November 3, 2012 Leave a comment

TWG: Let’s see how those stupid New Yorkers feel about Bloomberg’s gun grabbing there, now that they’re victims to the scum of society.  If they have one iota of sense, they will FORCE Bloomberg to return to them their human and civil right to self defense by easing up on his fascist gun control laws.  When looters are stealing television sets from senior citizens in senior housing and looting sneaker stores and liquer stores, it should be perfectly clear that those citizens are in for some violent opportunistic mayhem on a massive scale.  They’re not stealing food and water. They’re raping citizens, stealing tv’s sneakers and booze.  BECAUSE THEY CAN, THANKS TO BLOOMBERG’S ASININE GUN LAWS, WHICH THE CITIZENS HAVE SUPPORTED FOR YEARS.  Those beasts wouldn’t DARE pull that here in Montana or anywhere else the people have retained their right to defend themselves.

Hurricane Sandy’s darker side: Looting and other crime

Residents say the Rockaways is a family friendly place. But Hurricane Sandy’s aftereffects are making the area more dangerous, with looting and robberies, despite an increased police presence.

By Amy Lieberman

The last bus from Brooklyn rolled into the Belle Harbor neighborhood of the Rockaways, Queens, on Friday evening just before 6 p.m., as darkness slipped quickly over the beach-town streets, obscuring curbside piles of discarded furniture and electronics.

No lights powered on inside the modest one and two-story houses, as they haven’t for the past five nights, since Hurricane Sandy – a post-tropical cyclone with 80 mile-per-hour winds – struck this small peninsula and the greater New York City area and New Jersey on Monday, knocking out power for 3.5 million homes and businesses.

When the bus stopped, the 11 passengers scuttled out and set off for home, without lingering on the normally commercial street. Residents describe the Rockaways as a family friendly place, with certain pockets of rough neighborhoods.

But some people say Sandy’s aftereffect of darkness is making the area more dangerous, resulting in looting and at-home robberies, despite an increased police presence.

“I saw this guy stealing televisions from a nursing home right on the boardwalk on Tuesday, and the workers were chasing him up the street,” said Ben Cooper, who lives in Belle Harbor. “Every time I saw him he had a different TV.”

IN PICTURES: Sandy: Chronicle of an unrelenting storm

Mr. Cooper and a few friends stood talking on his house’s porch. It was about 7:45 p.m. and they were the only people around. The ocean breeze was getting colder and stronger. He held his flashlight and looked out onto the street, which was still covered with sand.

“There’s no lights, there’s no cameras, there’s no alarms, there’s no nothing. It’s kind of scary, you know?” he said.

His neighbor, Talentin Gutierez showed a reporter a borrowed generator, worth about $2,000. His was robbed the other day. Tonight, he will sleep in his car – wrecked from water damage – to guard the generator.

An hour later, a New York City Police Department officer looked on as four National Guards unloaded cases of bottled water and ready-to-eat emergency food packs outside a recently launched community center half a block away.

Looting and robberies have been up across all of New York City since Sandy hit, said the officer.

In Far Rockaway Peninsula, 15 people were charged with looting businesses on Wednesday. Reported arrests in Manhattan, Coney Island, Brooklyn, and Staten Island for looting at businesses like supermarkets and sneaker stores totaled 20 last week.

An NYPD spokesperson said in a phone interview that a team is currently investigating how the blackout for swaths of the city has impacted looting and robbery rates in New York City.

In New Jersey, the Monmouth County prosecutor was quoted as saying that police made 25 arrests for burglaries and looting incidents. But Governor Chris Christie has said that there is no evidence of widespread looting in the state.

Back in the Rockaways, about 20 blocks away from Belle Harbor, Candice Dugar waited in line for soup nearby a well-lit police precinct. She said she heard about a break-in at a sneaker store, Lee’s, and a local convenience store nearby a group of public housing projects.

Melvin Flemings said a group of men looted a liquor store near the police precinct in this neighborhood, Rockaway Park, and are now selling the alcohol on the beach.

Not everyone in the neighborhood has heard of looting and robberies since Sandy.

“I haven’t heard anything, but if they are taking from the grocery stores, it’s because they need it,” said Rebecca Kelly talking as she ate a cup of soup. “There’s no grocery stores open.”

The community center, one of several that have popped up since Sandy, was one of the few places lit as the night thickened and the streets cleared of people. It’s powered by solar panels from a Greenpeace truck, which arrived Thursday with groups of volunteers and former Occupy Wall Street demonstrators.

Two local women helped out inside the center, passing out food and clothing. They waited until after 10 p.m. for friends to accompany them on their 5 minute walk home. They are afraid of more than just petty crime, a concern they never had before they lost electricity.

One older woman, who asked only to be identified by her first name, Rosemary, said someone tried to break into her house early Tuesday morning when she was asleep. Today, she found her front door frame ripped off.

“Everything is dark. People take advantage of that factor. It’s only normal. It’s not only here,” she said.

Beatrice Loperfito witnessed two separate attempted home robberies last night. “I heard them breaking windows and I went out with my flashlight. These guys ran and the cops came.”

She said she is more worried, though, about the two convicted rapists living on her block.

“I have to protect myself. I have nothing else to give but myself. Everything else is all gone,” she explained.

The women and the rest of the volunteers eventually left and the lingering community center volunteers locked its doors close to 11 p.m., leaving bread and water outside.

Inside, the roaming police cars’ blue and red beams reflected through the center’s glass doors and onto a wall throughout the night.

In the morning, sunlight faded in slowly at 7 a.m. On the main drag in Belle Harbor, small groups of people huddled, waiting for express buses to Brooklyn and Queens.

JPFO Opinion: Taking Aim and “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”

September 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Taking Aim
By Dave Kopel. 
“What I would like to talk about today is two themes that come together. The first is what is wrong with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the second is what’s wrong with Independence Institute President Jon Caldara.”

“Michael Bloomberg has created a faux grassroots organization called “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.” Financially, it is by far the economic center of the gun prohibition movement in this country today. It is very wealthy and employs lots and lots of lobbyists in DC and in state capitals around the country. George Soros put some money in it as well; they’ve got some bucks.”

“But it’s not exactly what it seems. There are 12 people who got their names off this list of supposedly “Mayors against illegal guns.” These mayors said, “I never signed up for this; you just put my name on this without asking me. Or you told me his group is against illegal guns. Well, there are not too many people for illegal guns, so I signed up. It turns out you’re just against guns in general.”” …………

SAF BLASTS BLOOMBERG FOR ‘SHAM’ RELAXATION OF GUN REGULATIONS

May 19, 2010 1 comment

BELLEVUE, WA – New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “relaxation” of gun regulations to make them more streamlined in the city is “a lot of flash and very little substance,” the Second Amendment Foundation said today, after carefully studying the new guidelines.

“It is clear to us,” said SAF Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, “that Mayor Bloomberg is trying to make it appear that his gun regulations are more user-friendly to deflect a potential lawsuit once the Supreme Court rules on our legal action to overturn the handgun ban in Chicago. This tells us that Bloomberg and his legal advisors are convinced the high court will hand down a favorable ruling in the McDonald case, striking down Chicago’s ban and incorporating the Second Amendment to the states via the 14th Amendment.’

Under Bloomberg’s program, licensing requirements will be allegedly streamlined, renewal fees will go down and the application process will be speedier.

“This sounds good on the surface,” Gottlieb observed, “but a little digging reveals that there is only one handgun licensing office in the entire city, in Manhattan. There is only one office for registering and licensing rifles and shotguns in the entire city, and that office is in Queens. The handgun application fee is $340, and there is a $94.25 fingerprinting fee on top of that. This fee structure screams for elites only’ because those fees are outrageously expensive for average citizens.

“Adding insult to injury,” he continued, “this is only to keep a handgun in your home or business. To get a carry permit, you still have to prove a need.’ Mayor Bloomberg, it’s not the Bill of Needs, it’s the Bill of Rights.”

Even Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, told the New York Times that Bloomberg is relaxing the rules because the current regulations will not be defensible under an affirmative ruling in the McDonald case, Gottlieb noted.

“Mayor Bloomberg is right to think he needs to relax gun regulations in New York City,” Gottlieb said. “He is also right to think that SAF just might come knocking with a lawsuit after our case against Chicago is decided. But he is wrong to think these sham rules are going to mollify gun owners, or fool us into giving him a pass.”

 

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nations oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, CT; and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers and an amicus brief and fund for the Emerson case holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.
