New York's Assault Weapon Registration Begins
AP via ABC News ^ | 4-15-2013 | MICHAEL VIRTANEN

Posted on 04/15/2013 10:42:00 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

Key measures of New York's tough new gun law kicked in Monday, with owners of firearms now reclassified as assault weapons required to start registering the firearms and new limits on the number of bullets allowed in magazines.

As the new provisions took effect, New York's affiliate of the National Rifle Association planned to file a court request for a federal injunction to immediate halt to the magazine limit.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls those and other provisions in the state's new gun law common sense while dismissing criticisms he says come from "extreme fringe conservatives" who claim the government has no right to regulate guns.

"Yes, they are against it, but they are the extremists and the extremists shouldn't win, especially on this issue when it is so important to the majority," Cuomo said in a radio interview last week. "In politics, we have to be willing to take on the extremists, otherwise you will see paralysis."

New York's new gun restrictions, the first in the nation passed following December's massacre at a Connecticut elementary school, limit state gun owners to no more than seven bullets in magazines, except at competitions or firing ranges. (Read the rest)

It requires owners to register an estimated 1 million guns previously not classified as assault weapons by April 15, 2014, though law enforcement officials acknowledge they don't know exactly how many such guns New Yorkers have.

The assault weapon definition also applies to some shotguns and handguns .....

Devils like Cuomo do not consider ‘banning and regulating’ to be infringing? ... No, they know what they’re doing is unConstitutional but they also know why the pirate Roberts was placed ont he court with Kagan and Sotomayor.

Gee are the criminals, illegal aliens, terrorists and mentally ill people having these weapons registering them or is it just law abiding citizens who legally purchased these firearms?

Message to New Yorkers getting ready to register theri guns

DON'T DO IT

NY has a history of using registration lists for confiscation lists later.

I heard John Lott on local radio here in MI the other day....

He noted in Mass, gun ownership has fallen to 1/8th of what it was via all the laws in the Peoples Socialist Republik, because people got tired of the hassle and gave-up.

I'd love to see the real numbers on that, i.e. did people go underground with their ownership, or did they leave the State

It could be one reason Mass is so Blue, any Conservative with a brain left...

I could be coming to NY as well, this could be the last straw for many, to sell and get the Hell out of that Socialist Cesspool..

I would bury mine in cosmoline before I registered it.

I have lost all my guns anyway in a boating accident, the boat turned turtle and I lost every gun I have in 100 feet of murky swamp water.

Its awful.

Read the new definition of ‘assault weapon’. It is so broad.

If I am any more cynical, I'd say Cuomo wanted to drive a lot of regular law abiding New Yorkers to not comply.

One notes that the Ruger line of 10/22 .22LR rifles has a telescopic sight and a detachable magazine, making it an Assault Weapon. Sorry, kids.

lol

when they were in the minority... it was important for Government to protect the rights of minorities from the whims of the majority.

now that they are in the majority (debatable) they now claim that “In politics, we have to be willing to take on the extremists, otherwise you will see paralysis”

so which is it Nanny Bloomberg!?

No NY State resident I've talked with intends to comply - and they don't know of anyone else who will.

In Konnecticut we have until, I think October to register, but we can start any time - NO ONE I know of has rushed down to do the deed.

SCREW THEM - massive non-compliance. You want to check for yourself, Gov'nor? GET A WARRANT.

There has never been a more apt time to walk with our money. If you live in New York state, LEAVE.

Cease purchasing anything that originates in this communist hellhole.

Quit doing business with anyone based there. And let them know why.

It’s time to shrug, but shrugging is anything but easy.

No stay there. You wouldn't like here it in "fly over country." New Yorkers inevitably bring their attitudes with them, befouling every place they settle. They're like plague rats bringing the plague of liberalism wherever they go.

As written:

“Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls those and other provisions in the state’s new gun law common sense while dismissing criticisms..”
.
As it should be written:

“Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls those and other provisions in the state’s new gun law Common Sense™ while dismissing criticisms...”

As part of their 2014 Congressional Election strategy to rebrand themselves as problem solvers, the term Common Sense™ should now be considered a registered trademark of the Democratic Party. As such, everytime the words “common sense” are used by a Democrat, the words should be capitalized and the trademark superscript added.

As a consequence, when the phrase “It’s just common sense!” or some similar phrase it is uttered by a Democrat, it should be translated as “It’s just Democratic Party liberal doctrine!”

When CA came up with Assault Rifle Registration, I went back and forth on what to do. After talking to some fellow Gun Owners, the consensus was that not complying would open us and our Families up to being underground Felons, so I made the fateful decision to go ahead and do the deed.

IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE I COULD EVER MAKE, PERIOD.

I ended up selling my AK-47 to a Retired Cop in New York, simply because I didn't like the idea of being on an Assault Weapons Rifle owners list.

Now I am the proud owner of a CA Compliant AR-15, and guess what the Commies up in Sackofshitmento want to do? You guessed it, Register those as well. Apparently they have issues with “removable” Magazines, even if you need a Tool to do it. They never imagined someone would invent a Bullet Button.

You can't keep up with a Commie that has nothing to lose.

Tagline...

Don't be a jerk:
"...you people sat on your ass..." - you have no idea what you're talking about. WE didn't sit on our butts and just let it happen, anymore than you did (or did you?).

We are still a nation of laws (just barely) - but while the courts are still working (just barely) we cannot just start a shooting war - it may be getting close, but we are not there yet.
If you think you are, then get on with it - or are you just "talkin'"?

I live in NY (Long Island), and what I’m hearing is a mixture of the idiot lib nonsense I’ve heard my whole life (”Only police should have guns.” “Why does anybody need 150,000 bullets in a gun?”), and more normal people who are HOPPING MAD. A good many of the “hopping mad” crowd are policemen.

Georgia’s Senators Chambliss and Isakson just voted to allow the Senate’s gun registration and infringment bill to the Senate floor.

Aren’t they representative of Georgian peoples politics, too?

Unfortunately to a certain extent you are correct. The liberal to conservative thought process isn't a strict dichotomy, but a sliding scale. If you rank GA senators on a scale ranging from liberal to conservative they would hit somewhere in the middle. The NY Senators and Reps go about as far to the left as the scale goes. If you look at the GA house reps, the black democratic gerrymandered districts are about as far to the liberal end of the scale as you can get. But we actually have a majority who could be considered conservative.

We have a crop of home grown (city) and imported from the northeast liberals here who account for the less than perfect score. In particular, GA has suffered in the last two decades from and influx of people from places like NY, NJ, MA, etc. who moved here because of the available jobs. What they immediately started doing upon arrival is trying to make GA just like the places they moved to get away from. Or to put it another way. they sh!t where they ate and had to move and promptly started sh!tting where they ate again

You have got to be kidding, not even just barely anymore. Those days are done and over with. Now the only laws that are enforced are for the purpose of repression or revenue enhancement. I’ll be surprised if they even knock on the door when they decide to come confiscating.
