People in Tompkins county own guns? Who knew?

Let me venture out on a very think limb here and say when confiscation time comes around Kevin Gagan, New York State Police and Sgt. James Sherman, New York State Police will NOT call in sick.

NY City and Upstate NY have grown so far apart over the last 50 years.

We used to share a common culture and economy, and therefore politics were more united. Now the two areas have gone in completely different directions.

It would be ideal if somehow the state could be divided. Make NY City a district, like Washington DC.

If you do go, remember, that the authoritarians will be taking notes and your picture.
But if you do go, make sure to tape them and ask the cops if they will be faithful to the BOR or the commie NY governor. Everyone would like to have a list of traitors when the SHTF.

Solution:

Your protest will need at least one (possibly two) flags: One that says “Don’t tread on Me” and/or one that says “Come and Take It!”.

Your number of protesters must match or eclipse the number of people meeting inside. Protesters should remain outside - quiet, with faces covered...

... and visibly armed.

Wanna make the news? send a clear message without saying a thing?

If they (LEO and media) saw that at EVERY location that day...

... well, just think about what it could do.

I would think along with the flags, a large sign reproducing the text of the second amendment should be held up.

It’s actually only “open to the press” in any event. My suggestion is that protesters be there to greet the reporters.

Those of us who were active in the landuse wars with the BLM can tell you what you have in store NY.

These are ‘Informational meetings”. That means that you will be informed as to what you are going to do.

Period.

Very true the law as allready been passed. They didn’t listen to the voters before it was pass. I don’t think they will listen to talk now.

Because no one has any clue as to what this law means. The morons even forgot to exclude LEOs from its provisions.

I notice that they’re also hitting the rural areas (Ithaca itself excluded).

They know they have the cities behind them.

I wouldn’t doubt for a minute that people in Tompkins County own guns. Get outside the cities in Upstate NY and it’s VERY rural with LOTS of hunting.

Tells me the cities they’re visiting are surrounded by LOTS of gun owners. They’re just in the cities as a central location.

I live in CNY and hunting is VERY big around here. Far as I can tell, there are more guns and cows than people.

Why should they. I like the idea that the government enforcers have the same restrictions as the peasants. Not that they'll be enforced for the government's goons of course.

Tonpkins county - home of Ithaca. Arguably the most liberal city in the finger lakes.

“NY City and Upstate NY have grown so far apart over the last 50 years.

“We used to share a common culture and economy, and therefore politics were more united. Now the two areas have gone in completely different directions.

“It would be ideal if somehow the state could be divided. Make NY City a district, like Washington DC.”

_________________________________________________________

One problem with seperating NYC from the rest of the state is that NYC and the surrounding suburban counties pay the majority of the taxes.

On the other hand, NYC water comes from the Catskills. The water is so good that it is a fair trade.

That's something I often hear. My answer is: There is no true accounting of this, and also - these things will sort themselves out after separation. We in Upstate pay higher taxes to Albany, who then deigns to give it back to us with transfers to their Gov't, education and business cronies in Upstate, and have the gall claim they are subsidizing us. We also suffer through rules, regulations and mandates made for NY City, which add to a high cost of living and doing business in Upstate. It is why jobs and young people are leaving, and most towns and small cities of Upstate look like Appalachia.

If this changed, Upstate NY could achieve a normal, balanced economy.

Also, does anyone count how much the NY State Power Authority (with a board comprised completely of downstate members) subsidizes NY City with cheap hydro-power from Niagara Falls?

An interesting study of the Upstate-Downstate taxation issue can be found here:

http://www.rockinst.org/pdf/nys_government/2011-12-Giving_and_Getting.pdf

“Summary Findings

“New York City and the Downstate Suburbs “give” far more to
Albany in taxes and other revenues than they “get” in
state-funded expenditures. The Capital Region and the Rest of State, by contrast, get significantly more than they give. These conclusions hold under any of several alternative methodologies this study employs for regional allocation of the personal income tax and selected expenditures.

“Tables 1a and 1b on the following page summarize the overall distribution of revenues and expenditures under two alternative assumptions...”

For those unfamiliar with New York State government, people signed to ‘initiatives’ or ‘special assignments’ are connected and thereby well vetted...promotion is soon to follow. Ideally, they find their promotion before there is measurable success! Pure ideology.

Will people in grizzly country have to use only pepper spray and pots to defend themselves? I know there are only black bears in NY but just wondering.

Interesting concept.

The Eastern Shore of Maryland and state Virginia along with Delaware discussed forming Delmarva. Same reason.

There's also packs of coyotes (and no natural predators to keep them under control). A pack of coyotes can take down a large buck, so a lone human at night is considered easy prey (No one walks alone out here without a gun at night).
Right now, they're attacking and eating dogs and cats right out of peoples yards. It won't be long before they start going after human kids.
Good thing for the parents, though. Now, because of the new gun laws, they'll have 6 bullets to kill a dozen coyotes before the kids disappear into the woods. They'd better practice up on their bank shots. They're going to have to kill two coyotes at a time with one bullet - and never miss!
