I submit this question for consideration, “How many enemies,foreign or domestic, criminal sand/or tyrants may I shoot before I must reload and how rapidly can I shoot them?” I submit to you that there should be no limit other than that of the military pattern firearm technology that I now possess.

The Sullivan law is a crock of crap. There are more unlicensed guns in NYS than registered ones. I grew up in NYC, I knew quite a few people who had all sorts of weapons. It hasn’t worked in the past and I don’t see it working in the future. Did Bernard Getz have a registered gun? I had an unregistered pistol taken from my car, it was an antique German/Austrian revolver. I reported it stolen, but was never prosecuted for it not being registered. The doper who stole it probably thought it was a 45 cal., If he tried to fire it, God bless him, it would blow up in his hand.

"Number four, enact tougher penalties for illegal gun use, guns in school grounds and violent gangs."
Hey asshat. You already have those "tougher penalties" on the books. And so does every District and/or States Attorney in the USA. They just have to opt to use said 'tougher penalties'. Which is; turn every 'gun crime' over to the U.S. Dept of Justice for prosecution.

Then instead of Career Criminal X with seven armed robbery convictions getting .. say .. two years is state prison -- with one year served -- he'll be looking at something like TEN YEARS in a federal prison, serving a minimum of 80% of that time.

But 'you guys' -- Dem Pols running urban Cesspools -- don't do that. Nope, that would get your voters mad at you because their (gag) Baby Daddy would be locked in a cage where they belong, so they -- 'Baby Mommas', Granny, Auntie, etc -- wouldn't vote for 'you guys' any more which could kick you all off the gubmint free ride and you'd have to find a real job.

So stop with the BS and just turn all 'gun crimes' over to the Feds for prosecution under the existing law. It's that simple.

Note
a) Not surprisingly, Chicago (Cook County States Attorney) has historically had the LOWEST number of 'Gun Crimes' turned over to the Feds for prosecution. One year in the not so distant past they only turned over something like FIVE Cases to the 'G'.
b) The idea for this law for Fed prosecution of gun crimes and the passage of it, was by .... tada! ... the NRA!

All over the great state of New York, one suspects that law abiding, tax paying, (sometimes business owning and employee employing) gun owners are planning to sell their homes (and businesses) and move to Second Amendment-friendly states.

Hey! How'd you know? I didn't tell anyone.

The governor continued by saying his gun control proposals are not about “taking away people’s guns.”

BS!!!

I remember reading that Lanza’s Bushmaster was found, unused, in the trunk of his car. Is that not correct?

They definitely won't make it past the third one.

If Cuomo makes it past the first two, #3 & #4 will be shoo-ins. He needs to be stopped on the very first one.

None of these new laws will have any effect on gun related crime. They still fail to realize that criminals don’t follow laws.

That was the initial report, but the medical examiner said that Lanza used the Bushmaster was to kill everyone in the school except himself. Lanza used a handgun for his suicide.

LOL.

It does seem that we never hear about the tax losses to a state from out-migration of Second Amendment proponents from NY, Ill, CA, and other firearm-hostile states.

The folks that leave are good, hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding Citizens, and just happen to be paying for most of the social foolishness that the Dems dream up.

And, businesses will leave as well. Consider that ArmaLite might leave Illinois, and take lots of jobs and taxes with it.

Freedom of movement? Priceless!
