And so this is how it begins: a man with no criminal record and no mental health issues is told by the state that he must turn in his legally-purchased arms to the state because they somehow accessed his medical records. Reader LC Scotty dropped this admission of tyranny into the comments of todays earlier post:
The NYS SAFE Act is billed as a necessary law to protect the public and keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people.
But Hamburg attorney Jim Tresmond says his client was notified by letter that his gun permit was suspended upon the recommendation of State Police, who learned the man is on anti-anxiety medication.
Claiming that he had taken some psychotropic medications, and that he no longer could be eligible for the pistol permit, Tresmond said.
The permit holder lives in Amherst and Tresmond accompanied the man as he turned in his seven handguns used for target-shooting to Amherst Police.
A law-abiding, honest, hard working professional, who never had one wit of scandal associated with him, criminal or otherwise. And they took his guns away, Tresmond said.
Tresmond is one of the attorneys already suing the state over passage of the SAFE ACT, which at the time was the toughest gun control law in the country.
Tresmond says his client once took a prescribed medication for his anxiety but he is not mentally ill. The Amherst man ended his prescription use within the last year.
He is a law-abiding citizen, no record. He is a stellar member of the community, I would say. Not an ex-felon. He is one of the nicest young men I have met in a long time, Tresmond said.
Officials confirmed state law permits the suspension of a gun permit before the permit holder even gets a chance to state their case.
Id suggest it is time for New Yorkers to take some time to pray this evening, and decide how much more tyranny they are willing to take.
How does that musty old document Cuomo and Bloomberg hate so much go again?
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
It actually only went bad for the NAZI’s when we entered the war, now that we have become a fascist government there is no we to save us from them but us.
Socialist fascism is a pure born evil. Islam is it’s true origin of birth. We will overcome, once again. The greatest social experiment in human history, will not die, by moral vagrancy. We will overcome, once again.
I very severely doubt it. Ain't nobody got time for that. Besides, American Idol is on.
See, we keep going over how the Constitution has been violated. It's happened and is happening on both sides of the aisle. The Constitution, for all intents and purposes, is nothing more than a piece of paper and a history listen. It has no place in modern times, but for some reason we keep talking about how it's so important. It CANNOT be ignored, and oh how we rail against the criminals.
In the end, we do nothing. We shake our heads when another attack happens. We shake our fists in the air and b*tch to no one in particular when pols piss all over the Constitution. Yet we do NOTHING.
Let's face it: the Great Experiment has been concluded, and we ultimately failed. Because we continue to do nothing.
Cuomo admitted, right from the beginning, that confiscation would be a possibility, but yet the majority of NYers still love him.
