Police Wonder If They’ll Need To Confiscate Assault Weapons In Event Of Ban
CBS New York ^ | December 22, 2012 | Marla Diamond

Posted on 12/22/2012 4:32:01 PM PST by barmag25

Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.

As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them.

I went for an AR15 but the only one left (out of hundreds they had in stock) was a fancy $4,000 AR10.

My main goal today was to get something that would be banned if they renew the ban on high capacity magazines.

It was difficult to believe how many people were buying guns.

Are they defining all semi autos as “assault weapons” or just the ones that look “mean” to liberals?

Fully auto guns are almost impossible for ordinary citizens to come by, I guess the liberals really want to ban all guns and getting rid of the “mean” looking ones, the ones that make them pee their panties to look at, is just a start.I own just one gun, it is not semi auto, it’s a revolver that holds 7 bullets, they’ll want to confiscate that too I reckon. Who could need 7 whole bullets after all?

The first gun I ever owned, when I was 12 years old was a single shot bolt action .22, what a pain in the butt to have to reload after every single plink.

In 480 B.C., the Persian tyrant Xerxes marched on Greece with the intent to pillage and burn Athens. Xerxes forces had to go through the pass at Thermopylae that had a mountain on one side and the sea on the other. King Leonidas of Sparta with 300 Spartan warriors and several thousand other Greek troops held the pass. When Xerxes’ emissary demanded Leonidas’ men lay down their arms, surrender, and live, King Leonidas said: “Molon Labe” — “Come and Get Them”.

Leonidas and his men held the pass for three days until a spy betrayed them. Leonidas’ 300 Spartans and about a 1,000 other Greeks held Xerxes at bay until the rest of the Greek Army could withdraw. Of the hundreds of thousands of Persians committed, 20,000 of Xerxes’ best died in this battle. Leonidas died with his men. How many of you cops want to follow the lead of Xerxes-Bloomberg-Cuomo-Obama? Do they pay you enough to turn your guns on your fellow American friends, neighbors, and relatives? Molon Labe — if you dare.

“police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.”

Utter BS. I know lots of big city cops. Cops are thinking of ways to avoid trouble when TSHF, safely go home to protect their families and collect a pension.

Big city cops have no power beyond the leftist city ratholes.

So forget the leftist Sun-Tzu fake crap that the LAPD is about to sweep the nation and confiscate everyone’s rifle. This is nothing more than a leftist fantasy by the commies who are scared sh*tless by 80 million Americans who own guns.

Have a merry Christmas, everyone.

When they come for your guns give them something. Anything. Plan ahead and have a little ‘giveaway’ collection.

If you plan on turning over a single firearm to the jackboots, then you've missed the entire reason for the 2nd Amendment.

I'm normally an AK guy, but had made up my mind to get an AR15. I had decided that I was going to grab a Colt LE6920 this month, but I stumbled across a Colt Python and couldn't pass it up.

My gun budget was toast for this month, so I was planning on getting the AR next month. Then the shooting happened, and everything disappeared in the panic buying.

I've been to a couple of my favorite gun stores, and they are out of everything AK and AR related.

Ten years earlier in 490 B.C. The Persian King Darius tried to do the same thing except he landed at Marathon which is not far from Athens.

Herodotus put the Persian number at 100,000 but modern historians think it was closer to 25-35,000. The Athenians numbered around 10,000 (plus a thousand Plataens).

Darius army was a professional one trained and equipped by the Persian Empire. The Greeks were free men and the soldiers who could afford to wore heavy armor (hoplites). The ones who could not afford the armor were something like slingers and archers.

The Greeks gave Darius a bloody nose at Marathon but that was not the end. The Athenians who must have been exhausted from the battle, nevertheless marched the 26 miles to Athens and when Darius ships arrived at the port of Piraeus he found the heavily armed Greeks waiting for him.

Of course I detest the evil leftists that do this, I would never condone or suggest this reprehensible activity known as "swatting", conceived and executed by modern American Progressives.

It is typical of them to use a burner phone, have a gal record a “panicked” call from script on a pocket recorder, make the call from near target, remove the phone battery, and leave. Of course it doesn't have so much effect, should a liberal be accidentally targeted by one of their own, because liberals will be thrilled with the "pleasure" of entertaining police in their home.

LOL! That would not be wise.

The mayor said a shooting rampage like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary “only happens in America.”

Fifth Amendment: "No person shall be...deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law..."

IMO The fact that they're thinking of ways to confiscate peoples' firearms, is evidence that they know people will not meekly surrender them.

The result, of course, would mean Ruby Ridge & Branch Davidian style raids, across the country, and would likely provide Obama the excuse he needs, to declare martial law.

Which, perhaps, is the ultimate goal.

As of this moment, it’s unlikely that local cops will go house to house confiscating illegal firearms. After all, they’re our neighbors with ties to the communities they live in.

” Other than a few that might be in the hands of organized crime bosses and drug dealers, I can’t imagine that there are very many “assault rifles” within the boundaries of New York City.

It’s virtually impossible just to get a pistol permit there, unless you’re a celebrity with national name recognition.”

It looks like New York is the Liberal’s testing ground. They are making headway in disarming the public and have even made huge inroads into policing what it’s citizens may eat and drink. So far, there hasn’t been all that much push-back, which must be very encouraging to the wannabe American Gestapo.

I’m afraid their confidence might be a little misplaced and off the mark. There would no doubt be some nasty surprises in store for them if they decide to push their agenda in some other parts of the country.

No 'back up' here. If you want to commit suicide to make a political point that the MSM won't report and the opposition won't care about for a Constitution that no longer exists go right ahead.

If I'm going to fight a war I intend to inflict heavy damage repeatedly and continuously for as long as possible. I just can't imagine anyone thinking that throwing lives away to make a big show is somehow a rational tactic of war that has been passed down through centuries of victory.

But if you think you've made some great point that overshadows the (literally) thousands of times I have post MOLON LAVE then sit back and feel good about yourself. You're usually pretty intelligent but no one has a perfect record. ;-)

I doubt very much if police departments across the country are worried about this.

The amount of vitriol spewing from the Kulturkampfers in Bloomberg’s little crime ridden paradise over the Second Amendment exceeds belief here.

The Daily News called Wayne LaPierre the Craziest Man in the world. Today’s New York Daily news is full of editorializations by the left-wing thought NAZIs in the media.

Bloomberg is fairly BURSTING with self-righteousness over this subject, as always.
