Posted on 01/14/2013 6:31:50 PM PST by FR_addict
ALBANY (CBSNewYork) The New York State Legislature was poised Monday night to pass the first gun control measure following the Newtown school massacre. This as the vice president was set to unveil federal proposals to end gun violence on Tuesday.
Albany lawmakers have reportedly ironed out the kinks, allowing them to enact new gun control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. Assuming the new bill passes it was sent to both house of the Legislature on Monday night it will turn into the toughest set of gun control laws in the country. ...
The new state legislation will:
* Limit ammunition clips to seven. Its now 10
* Force gun owners to renew their licenses every five years
* Stiffen penalties for using a gun in the commission of a crime
* Stiffen penalties for bringing a gun on school property
* New restrictions on the assault weapons already owned by New Yorkers
They will be basically not permitted to be transferred. They will be grandfathered in but not in terms of a transfer. There will be a registry, Silver said.

If the people of NY allow this to transpire, then they no longer deserve to be free.
No one makes 7s. So in effect, you can’t shoot your weapons.
What are you supposed to do with your 10 rounds?
Anyone that stays on NY after this or even before this needs their head examined or they are willing .... Subjects of the realm
If every blue state is vacated by conservatives what will happen?
New Yorkers, where is your backbone? Why have you not been out on the streets with your protest sign? Is it too cold for your big fat asses?
Upstate NYers are going to have to deal with NYC.
The Senate is a Republican majority and they are evidently going along with this.
Is there any weapon that is not used for assault purposes?
NYC is light years away from Upstate.
I predict that if this bill becomes law, New York will become the violent crime capital of the U.S.
Our government doesn’t treat al Queda this way. :(
Put three crayons in it before you put the cartridges in.
Know any NY state legislators send em this

As the ghouls swoop in on Blows infamatory rhetoric promoted by The New York Times with directionless rebuttal or meaningless responses laughed at by its staffers. I’m.not even sure if a C.M.Blow is even listed on the NYT staff .
I submit the purpose of this NYT article is to keep the right and conservatives focused on what the Demo-Coms describe as issues through their propaganda arm known as the MSM (mainline socialist media) not on the problems created by the “Libs” on their road of good intentions or the socialist/communists successors to comtrol over todays Democrat party :
Not one word in Blows inflamatory contribution will address or offer a solution about the hundreds of gangland murders and shootings using illegaly obtained mostly handguns and revolvers .Not assault weapons” which are really single shot per trigger pull rifles, used for small game hunting or target practice. That are made to look like their military counterpart. .
Blow certainly cant critique a system created by his ilk .Ignored by his publication is that when once caught, perps get set free with lenient sentencing from liberal judges or sob sister plea bargain prosecution promoted by The New York Times. Theres certainly no criticism of no snitch mentality partcularly in areas where these shootings are rampant.
What do you expect an honest look at the problem from The New York Times ? Theyre incapable thats why theyre going broke...Printing tripe from people like C.M.Blow
While attempting to deal with the latest diversion by the Demo-Coms who would if they had their druthers eliminate the constitution period not just the 2nd ammendment. Conservatives and defenders of the 2nd amendment should cite these issues mentioned here. Holding their fire and aim this when they see the whites of their eyes.
But everyone knows all you have to do is vote republican and its all hunky-doory!
Go ahead, fools. it will cost less to see you lose in state court than fed court.
I don’t live in NY. I’m trying to help. NY is just the first.
Anyone can call the representatives.
Let’s help out.
If the Republican party would put some pressure on the Republicans in the NY State Senate to stop this, maybe then I would contribute to them.
It says “clips”, not “magazines”. The right lawyers will love this.
