Skip to comments.New York Gun Owners Flip the Bird to "Assault Weapons" Registration Law
Posted on 01/26/2013 3:25:52 PM PST by Daffynition
New York Governor Cuomo the Junior may have rushed through his new gun control law with such speed that police will avoid its restrictions only through the blessed miracle of selective enforcement, but he may have a little trouble getting the state's firearms owners to attend his party. The new law requires owners of those scary-looking rifles known as "assault weapons" to register their property (amidst assurances that, oh no, the registration lists will never be used for confiscation), but gun rights activists are actively urging gun owners to defy the new mandate.

Mr Cuomo II, back away
**Couldn’t they have made the law more workable by just requiring that criminals register their guns?**
Good, start going door to door in the hoods to see how far they get with forced registration! ;-)
The resistance talk is all huffing and puffing, the Assault weapons ban in NJ had almost 100% compliance, the newer CT restrictions has near 100% compliance by the law abiding taxpaying c**k sucking citizenry.
Holder is going to give the law enforcement organizations in NY State, local , county, regional, state, full access to the entire NICS registration system going back to the beginning of the system.
Every registered owner of a “assault weapon” is going to be tracked down.
The Canadians only failed in their long gun registry program due to the lack of a NICS type system, their neighbors in NY lost this war through millions of papercuts.
Remind anyone of anything?......
How could one determine the level of compliance unless you had the list to begin with? That makes no sense. Seems that your 100% figure is being pulled out of your butt. Canada, Australia and others think compliance is/was under 70%, but no way to know for sure.
Make no mistake this sharing of NICS data is a coordinated situation between NY State anti-gun pols/special interest groups and the national Democrat Executive bureaucracy/anti-gun interest groups in the Executive branch.
Jersey isn’t New York.
Chuck Schumer sponsored the Bill that created NICS in 1993, he has spent his entire career preparing for this moment.

One little thing the gun grabbers have overlooked is the vast majority of guns in this country have never required registration.
Difference is you people, stuck in some weirdo world, gave in. We will not.
Every NICS check created a de facto registration as of this week, AG Holder is making the entirety of the NICS archive immediately available to NY State Law Enforcement.
Every person who submitted a long arm NICS check since NICS went live in 1998, is going to see a form letter sent backed up by the threat of execution by the local SWAT team.
The Coumo family has proven time and time again over the last 6 decades they don’t give a shit about the plebs in the state. Coumo is going to force his own Waco just so he and Schumer have something to talk about over drinks in their retirement years in Florida.
The cops I know ARE saying that. (And I know a LOT of cops.)
A simple way to get around such trick is to sell the NY purchased gun to an out of stater and buy one for cash. Ends the paper trail and the NCIS registration fails. For that matter sell it and buy it back for cash.
What you are also forgetting is the sheer number of those who are refusing to register them. There are not enough police nor prisons to handle that many people.
And still the vast majority of weapons in this country have never required registration or a background check.
Why don’t you just surrender to them already. Oh wait, Jersey, you already did.
DO NOT dictate to others as to what you have already done.
