Get Out of New York Before Cuomo Kills You

“An upstate man was arrested under the state’s new gun law when troopers found him with a legally registered pistol that had a magazine that held nine bullets – two more than the new statute allows,” lohud.com reports. “Troopers from the New Lebanon barracks in Columbia County stopped a car driven by Gregory D. Dean Jr., 31, of Hopewell Junction, around 9:45 p.m. Sunday on Route 22 because the vehicle’s license-plate lamp was not working. While interviewing Dean, troopers noticed a handgun on the front seat, partially covered by a sweatshirt. The troopers determined the gun, a .40-caliber pistol, was legally registered and possessed. However

when the troopers inspected the pistol, its magazine contained the nine bullets – New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act only allows seven bullets per magazine.

The Troopers charged Dean with unlawful possession of certain ammunition feeding devices and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation. They’re misdemeanors, but if convicted he will lose his gun rights.

This is not going to play well in Poughkeepsie. Or any of the free states like Texas.  TheBlaze.com picked up the story last night and Ive seen it all over Zite.  Judging by the comments underneath the posts, there is little love for NY’s SAFE Act. This thing is headed for an interesting court fight.

Law Enforcement can take a gun off a legally armed citizen to protect their safety, but what gives them the right to do an illegal search of a magazine without a search warrant. Does New York disregard all the Bill of Rights?  Are you New Yorkers subject to the Constitution or the Queen like Canada?

This incident is going to put magazine capacity limits back in the spotlight, which is a good thing.These laws only have no effect on criminals and crazies. Their only purpose is to turn law abiding gun owners into criminals and take away their right to keep and bear arms.

The clock is ticking on mandatory “assault rifle” registration in the Empire State, which goes into affect on April 15, 2014.

If you live in New York, your safety has been compromised by the Progressives.  That shit would never float in Texas, Utah, Arizona or any other state worth living in.  Get the F out of the Empire State before this happens to you:

GUN NUTS LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT MASS SHOOTING

If you dont watch MSNBC or CNN than you may not be aware that the biggest gun nuts in America are Progressives.  These hoplohobes are obsessed with your guns.  Obama used to blame Bush for everything.  Today its the NRA. Guns are responsible for every problem we have, according to the left.  

Piece Morgan spews his venom and vitriol daily in his tweeter feed, which has more followers than his CNN television show has viewers. 

You wont hear Drama Queen Piers, who is so concerned with childrens safety, talk about the worlds largest childrens gun safety program, which is run by the NRA. Nor will #DearPiers tell you that measles kill 250,000 children outside of the United States every year, a problem that can eradicated with vaccinations. 

Regular MSNBC “Morning Joe” panelist Donny Deutsch said last week that senators who voted against last month’s failed gun legislation will “literally have blood on their hands” the next time there’s a shooting.

“Unfortunately the next time a crazy or somebody who would have not gotten a gun from a background check kills somebody, I want to know what the response is going to be because they literally have blood on their hands,” Deutsch said. “I want their response — that senator’s response — the next time, whether it’s tomorrow, next week, next month, a child, anybody is killed by somebody who might have been prevented by a background check, I want to know their answers at that moment in time.”

“They have blood on their hands,” he repeated. “It’s that simple. There’s no gray, there’s no abstract here, it is literally — the dots are that connected.”

“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski seconded Deutsch’s comments, adding, “I agree completely. I’m sorry, there is no excuse for this.”

We won the first round in the Senate. But we can not let our guard down.  Progressives are working each and everyday to destroy the NRA and usurp Second Amendment civil rights.

We need to stay on the offensive. We must push to expand gun rights in our home states.  Firearms save hundreds of lives each day in the United States. Maddow, Morgan, Donaldson, Deutsch and all the cogs in the progressive propaganda machine have full time armed personal protection officers.

In fact, if you dont have a gun yet, you can make yourself and your family safer by simpy looking like you are carrying a gun.  Bad guys are looking for a victim, not a gun fight.

Smith and Wesson, a Massachusetts gun manufacturer, reported at the NRA meeting that 35% of gun purchases in the United States in 2012 were first time gun owners.  We are winning and the progressives are whining.

Since December, weve been fighting to save our civil rights.  But the most popular posts on this blog are the ones about guns, not gun politics.  So starting tomorrow, we are going to get back to the business of writing about guns and gear.  Ammo may still in short supply but guns and gear are available now. 

I was able to put hands on a ton of guns and gear at the 142nd NRA Annual Meeting in Houston.

Tomorrow: The Walther PPQ-M2

It's Not About Gun Control - It's About a Total Ban on Civilian Gun Ownership

Last night at the NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas. Glenn Beck warned NRA members that the freedom of all mankind is at stake and the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

They want to fundamentally transform our country and theyve just about finished the project, Beck told an audience of thousands Saturday evening at the NRA Stand and Fight Rally, They feel they must regulate us until we comply, but I will not comply.

Neither universal background checks nor any other proposed legislation is about gun control.  ITS ALL ABOUT A TOTAL BAN AND SUBSEQUENT CONFISCATION OF CIVILIAN OWNED GUNS. PERIOD.

During his 1996 Senate campaign Obama was asked, “Do you support legislation to ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns?”  His answer was “Yes.  When campaigning for president in 2004, Obama said,  “I continue to support a [federal] ban on concealed carry.

Feinsteins “assault weapons” ban, supported by both Obama and Bloomberg would have enacted confiscation over a generation.  Gun owners would not immediately surrender their firearms, but because of the angle of the grip on the shotgun, or more than a dozen other cosmetic caveats, it would be a felony offense to pass hundreds of models of legally purchased and possessed firearms to anyone else, including family members, when you die.  Millions of guns would be confiscated by the government and destroyed over a generation.mm“We’re not taking any guns away from you, just all future generations.”

James W. Porter II, who will be elected president by the NRA board of directors tomorrow said yesterday, I hear some Americans say with the last election, the country is lost. No, no. An election was lost.

Theres another election more important for the second amendment right around the corner, Porter said. With the U.S. Senate and the House (both) up for grabs, we as individual NRA members can direct the massive energy of spontaneous combustion to gain the political high ground. We do that and Obama can be stopped.

Progressives are working full time to drive a wedge between NRA leadership and its members. But their strategy is fundamentally flawed.  The NRA, like the GOP, loses members when their organizations move to the left, not to the right.  Progressives dont get it.  The average NRA member does.

Efforts to pass gun-control legislation have only made the National Rifle Association stronger, as the membership rolls now surpass a record 5 million, NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre told the gun rights groups annual meeting Saturday.

The state of the NRA is stronger and larger than it has ever been, LaPierre said during the annual meeting attended by over 75,000 NRA members. Our commitment to freedom is unwavering and our growth is unprecedented. By the time were finished, the NRA must and will be 10 million strong.

About one-tenth of the members have joined in the past six months, the NRA says.

Political elites and their allies in the media are pushing a gun-control agenda that will lead to gun confiscation and a more dangerous America.

The NRA, LaPierre said, is at the middle of the river of Americas mainstream, and what we want is exactly what most Americans want, he said.

Ambushed Police Officers- The Unintended Consequences of Gun Ban Laws

Investigators believe that the suspected Boston bombers killed MIT police officer Sean A. Collier on the night of April 18 in a failed attempt to steal his gun, The New York Times reports.

Police told the Times that surveillance video shows a pair of men, believed to be Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, approaching Collier’s squad car from behind at about 10:30 p.m. and shooting him to death before attempting to take his gun.

“He had a triple-lock holster, and they could not figure it out,” a law enforcement official told the Times. “There is evidence at the scene to suggest that they were going for his gun.”

Law abiding people possess 99.9% of the 300+ million firearms in the possession of civilians in the United States. By definition, law abiding citizens dont commit crimes.  They follow the law.  Criminals and crazies do not.

If you watched any of the coverage of the Boston bombing manhunt, you are now aware that the overwhelming majority of police officers, including those in gun banning states like Massachusetts, are armed with both high capacity pistols AND modern sporting rifles (gun grabbers call them assault weapons).

When the government bans modern sporting rifles and pistol magazines that hold more than seven bullets, it is putting an even bigger target on law enforcement officers.  Criminals, crazies and terrorists are not going to obey the law.  Criminals will target police officers for banned firearms, especially in states where law enforcement is the only source for these firearms. 

Targeting officers to obtain firearms is one of the primary reasons that surveys by the Police Federation of England and Wales have continued to show police officers considerable resistance to routine arming. In the Federations most recent (2006) Officer/Arming survey, 82% of respondents were against the routine arming of police.

No one seriously believes disarming law enforcement officers in America is an option.  But the primary goal of gun banning Progressives is the incremental disarmament of civilians.  If successful, law enforcement officers who already are in great peril, will be targeted in increased numbers because they will be the only source of prohibited firearms and high capacity magazines.

Gun and magazine bans for law abiding civilians create more danger to both the police and the public.  Civilian guns are 80 times more likely to be used to protect like than take life.  Women use firearms over 200,000 times a year to defend against sexual assaults.

Nations with strict gun control laws have substantially higher murder rates than the United States.  In fact, the nine European nations with the lowest gun ownership rate have a combined murder rate 3 times that of the nine Europeans nations with the highest gun ownership rate.

In the UK where possession of handguns is illegal, violent crime occurs at the rate of 2,034 per 1,000 people. The rate in the United States is 466 violent crimes per 1,000 people.

With one exception, every public mass shooting in the USA since 1950 has taken place in a GUN FREE ZONE, where civilians are banned from carrying guns.

West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin said yesterday on “Fox News Sunday”  that he plans to re-introduce a bill to require gun buyers to undergo criminal and mental health background checks for all online and gun show sales.

The bill will have an effect on law abiding citizens ability to legally purchase firearms.  It will not only have no effect on criminals ability to illegally obtain firearms, it will likely put police officers in greater peril as strict gun control laws in Massachusetts recently did in Boston.

Progressives Planning to Come Back for Your Guns

Progressives will NEVER give up on banning civilian ownership of firearms.  See UK, Canada and Australia for details. 

A week after the Senate failed to come up with 60 votes to pass more gun control measures Crazy Joe Biden regrouped with gun control advocates yesterday and reassured them the White House isnt giving up the fight.

Biden made a real commitment to keep pushing for more gun control laws, said Pia Carusone, executive director of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a gun control PAC run by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly.

Bidens message to the groups was, Its the beginning. Its not the end, said Carusone. The tone of the meeting was very positive. There is a collective sense that we are on the right side of history.

Yesterday the New York Times reported that talks to revive gun control legislation are under way on Capitol Hill.  Drawing on the lessons from battles in the 1980s and ’90s over the Brady Bill, which failed in Congress several times before ultimately passing, gun control supporters believe they can prevail.

According to the NY Times, gun control groups and Obama allies are already turning an eye to 2014, plotting payback for senators who voted against expanded background checks. Giffords group is even prepared to run ads against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who is a close friend of Giffords but who also voted against background checks.

Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire,  only one out of 22 senators on the East Coast north of Virginia who voted against the Manchin-Toomey-Schumer gun control amendment has been the target lately of some of the most furious lobbying by gun control proponents.  The NY Times says local newspapers have been inundated with letters to the editor denouncing her vote, and the gun grabbers have run radio ads saying she “ignored the will of the people”.

The gun grabbers will never give up and gun owners (in at least 40 states) are willing to waive their Second Amendment rights and give up their guns.  This fight will play out in the 2014 mid-term elections.  Supporters of Second Amendment civil rights, including Democrats who voted against Manchin-Toomey-Schumer need to be supported with our time and treasure, to defeat the gun banners.

Senators who supported the Schumer/Bloomberg backed amendment, including Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) MUST be opposed and defeated.

According to the Progressive Propaganda publication, the Huffington Post, several senators have confided to Crazy Joe Biden that they are feeling the backlash from constituents.

Those senators told him that they needed to be assured there was adequate support for expanded gun control to pass because they did not want to take such a great political risk on something that was doomed to fail. Those Senators are vulnerable and MUST be defeated to protect our Second Amendment civil rights.

We can not afford to let our guard down for a minute.  The Progressives are coming for our guns.

I think were going to bring back that bill and address it, said Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who has been leading the charge for action in the wake of the Newtown shootings. It may be months, it may be half a year. But the Majority Leader seems committed to bringing it back.
