Newsday ^ | January 4, 2013 | YANCEY ROY

ALBANY -- A key bloc of Senate Democrats emerged from a huddle Friday with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo saying the governor wants to pass a package of gun-control legislation this month.

Republicans indicated they could support "closing loopholes" in some gun laws and limits on high-capacity magazines.

During the 90-minute meeting Friday, the governor and the five-member Independent Democratic Conference pored over a "comprehensive" gun proposal "step by step," said Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx). Klein heads the Democratic splinter group that has joined with 30 Republicans to control the State Senate.

Klein declined to spell out many specifics but said his group and Cuomo agree on the principles of the gun proposals, and the urgency...

Hey! If I was a mafia boss, I’d want MY victims unarmed too! Makes intimidation and extortion so much simpler.

I moved to Indiana in 1994 and got my first civilian carry permit a month later. Last year, I finally converted to a lifetime carry permit. It took seven days, including the weekend, for my permit to arrive. I cannot imagine living in a state where the servants became the masters.

Hey MestaMachine. Andrew Cuomo’s old man (and I say that with all my heart) said that there was no Mafia. That is was just a smear made up against Italians.

Sounds like he was giving cover to La Familia.

Don’t think Andy is mobbed up but just as stupid and hardcore Left as his father.

PS: I worked on an Organized Crime Task Force focusing on the Gambinos/Gottis in New york and Jersey, Chicago, etc. Some of Papa Cuomo’s mobbed up labor union supporters were owned by the Mafia, all Democrats mind you.

If you don’t believe me, read the excellent article in The American Spectator, April 1997, “Let’s Be Friends: A Mob-Controlled Union Delivers the Goods for Bill”, by Byron York.

Then you’ll know howmuch the mob owned the Clintons and other Democrats.

The one we gun owners need to watch closely is what Liberals keep referring to as the “Gun Show Loophole.”

What they’re calling a Gun Show Loophole is when private citizens meet at gun shows and buy or sell guns from other private citizens and no background check is made. When no background check is made to determine whether or not the buyer is a felon or mentally incompetent, the possibility exists that you have just sold a firearm to a felon or a nut.

Liberals say that if we will just pass a law that closes this “Gun Show Loophole,” gun buyers at Gun Shows will have to purchase their guns only from licensed gun dealers with a Federal Firearms License (FFL) at the Gun Show and a background check will be made to determine the eligibility of the buyer.

This law, if passed, may sound reasonable to some, but what that law will do is make it illegal to sell or trade guns among your friends and relatives, but criminals and the mentally disturbed will continue to purchase their guns from the trunk of the car of the guy parked in the alley behind Wal-Mart who also sells marijuana, cocaine, etc., etc.

Let your elected representatives know that they must not pass laws that will take freedom from law abiding citizens but will not change in the slightest how criminals attain firearms in this country

At this point, it doesn’t matter what new anti-gun laws they pass.

They might as well be pizzing into the wind.

Me too. Make a couple copies on that pink paper for safeguard. Believe they charge $20.00 to replace it.

Yep.
The tards at Staples wouldn’t copy it, so I bought some pink paper and did it myself. I’ve even got one in the butt of my Glock 23, which I carry DAILY.
