N.Y. Assembly Speaker Silver: ‘We Are Going To Ban Assault Weapons’
CBS New York ^ | 1/14/2013 | CBS

Posted on 01/14/2013 6:31:50 PM PST by FR_addict

ALBANY (CBSNewYork) – The New York State Legislature was poised Monday night to pass the first gun control measure following the Newtown school massacre. This as the vice president was set to unveil federal proposals to end gun violence on Tuesday.

Albany lawmakers have reportedly ironed out the kinks, allowing them to enact new gun control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. Assuming the new bill passes — it was sent to both house of the Legislature on Monday night — it will turn into the toughest set of gun control laws in the country. ...

The new state legislation will:

* Limit ammunition clips to seven. It’s now 10

* Force gun owners to renew their licenses every five years

* Stiffen penalties for using a gun in the commission of a crime

* Stiffen penalties for bringing a gun on school property

* New restrictions on the assault weapons already owned by New Yorkers

“They will be basically not permitted to be transferred. They will be grandfathered in but not in terms of a transfer. There will be a registry,” Silver said.

If the people of NY allow this to transpire, then they no longer deserve to be free.

No one makes 7s. So in effect, you can’t shoot your weapons.

What are you supposed to do with your 10 rounds?

They discussed this in a closed door session away from the people. They are passing it without waiting the three days so they don't have to hear the PEOPLE’s voice.

The Senate is a Republican majority and they are evidently going along with this.

As the ghouls swoop in on Blow’s infamatory rhetoric promoted by The New York Times with directionless rebuttal or meaningless responses laughed at by its staffers. I’m.not even sure if a C.M.Blow is even listed on the NYT staff .

I submit the purpose of this NYT article is to keep the right and conservatives focused on what the Demo-Coms describe as issues through their propaganda arm known as the MSM (mainline socialist media) not on the problems created by the “Libs” on their road of good intentions or the socialist/communists successors to comtrol over todays Democrat party :

Not one word in Blow’s inflamatory contribution will address or offer a solution about the hundreds of gangland murders and shootings using illegaly obtained mostly handguns and revolvers .Not “assault weapons” which are really single shot per trigger pull rifles, used for small game hunting or target practice. That are made to look like their military counterpart. .

Blow certainly can’t critique a system created by his ilk .Ignored by his publication is that when once caught, perps get set free with lenient sentencing from “liberal” judges or sob sister plea bargain prosecution promoted by The New York Times. There’s certainly no criticism of “no snitch” mentality partcularly in areas where these shootings are rampant.

What do you expect an honest look at the problem from The New York Times ? They’re incapable that’s why they’re going broke...Printing tripe from people like C.M.Blow

While attempting to deal with the latest diversion by the Demo-Coms who would if they had their druthers eliminate the constitution period not just the 2nd ammendment. Conservatives and defenders of the 2nd amendment should cite these issues mentioned here. Holding their fire and aim this when they see the whites of their eyes.

I really do feel sorry for the folks in Upstate NY and the Downstater’s in Illinois. They’re just normal folks like most of us but are being held hostage by cities that can’t control their minority populations, particularly Chicago.

This would immediately render illegal all 10+ rd. mags and clips?? Why don't they just say THAT instead of being cowards and say the new limit is 7?

Sounds like NY is being prepped for an easy conquering by 0bama's CIVILIAN NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE (Of course THEY'LL be issued firearms by the gov't) after all the Constitution-loving NY'ers leave the State.

Yep!
It seems like Republicans like CLOSED DOORS too, especially when they want to pass a bill that violates 2 amendments
The Second and Fourth Amendment.

Things may be legally different this time.

Since the Heller decision “incorporated” the 2nd as one of those rights the states’ can’t abrogate according to the 14th amendment, the 2nd amendment now applies to state government as well as the federal government.

I’m sure a lawyer here on FR could explain it better that I did.

No, think about it, who is going to make 7 round mags for NY? This means that if you have a mag it’s illegal. Also this covers garands.

The only handgun with a 7 round mag is the 1911 afaik.

Got a case of dynamite

Yes I crossed my old man back in Oregon
Don’t take me alive

Mitt Romney. When he ran for the Senate and for governor, he supported a ban on assault rifles and the Brady Bill's five-day waiting period for gun purchases. He proudly said those positions wouldn't make him "the hero of the NRA." As governor, he made Massachusetts the first state to permanently ban assault weapons. He has even flip-flopped about whether he owns any guns. In New Hampshire, he was asked his view on the Second Amendment. He responded that he had been a hunter "pretty much all my life." Later, red-faced aides of Romney had to admit that Romney had never had a hunting license, and under further questioning, Romney acknowledged that his "lifetime of hunting" was having shot at some birds during a Republican governors meeting during a fund-raising event and maybe shooting at "small varmints" when he was seventeen with his cousin.

At least your stalwarts of the Stupid Party still hold the House.....last I checked legislation was supposed to go through both chambers of Congress.

Thanks for continuing to support spineless unprincipled jackasses like Myth, Boner, Cantor, and McCain and showing the Stupid Party they have no reason to represent or uphold the Constitution.

Let your GOP-E masters know that blaming the voters isn't a viable party platform.
