    Since the start of the decade, a million people have moved out of New York. For Andrew Cuomo, thatís not a problem, thatís a victory. It has solidified his partyís hold on power, and it has reshaped the state and its culture in a fashion more congenial to his interests and agenda. ... From the summer of 2017 to the summer of 2018, New York had a net loss in population of more than 48,000. Illinois, another Democrat state, was the second-most abandoned state, with 45,000 net reduction in population. Of the seven other states which had a net loss...

    The signs calling for the repeal of New Yorkís SAFE Act have become a fixture in the landscape of many parts of upstate New York, including the Finger Lakes. Now a western New York congressman is sponsoring legislation he claims would do what so many Second Amendment supporters have called for since the state Legislature adopted it with virtually no public debate in 2013: Repeal the controversial gun-control legislation called Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act. Rep. Chris Collins, R-27 of Clarence, said Monday that he is sponsoring legislation called the Second Amendment Guarantee Act, which he...

    Don Hall was sitting in his living room watching TV with his girlfriend about 9:30 p.m. earlier this year when he was startled by flashing police car lights in his driveway. Hall met the Oneida County sheriff's deputies in the driveway, worried that they were bringing bad news about a family member. Instead, the deputies produced an official document demanding that Hall, a 70-year-old Vietnam veteran who is a retired pipefitter, turn over his guns to them on the spot. On the document Hall said he was described as "mentally defective." When Hall told police he'd never had any mental...

    Last November, the day before the Muslim terrorist attack in Mali that killed 27 innocent civilians, including one American, former Peace Corps volunteer Anita Datar, Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan shot down the idea of a religious test for refugees coming to America at taxpayer expense. Ryan said, "We will not have a religious test, only a security test," before touting his bill, the SAFE ACT of 2015, that allegedly gave extra scrutiny to those ¬ďrefugees¬Ē coming to the U.S. from Syria and Iraq.

    Published a year ago on ďCoach is Right,Ē this is a story which bears repeating The left will do anything to abolish the private ownership of firearms. And the emphasis is on anything. After all, politicians cannot safely exercise absolute, uncontested authority over an armed public. And the majority of our nationís ruling class--yes, Republicans included--yearn for such power; in part because it will bring an end to those annoying constitutional rights which prevent lawmakers implementing what they ďknow to be best,Ē but mostly because these self-infatuated mirror-gazers believe dictatorial authority to be their due. The question is, how can...

    One New York legislator is proposing some changes to the New York SAFE Act.Based on the fact that two separate minimum wage requirements were recently enacted by the legislature for residents of New York City and the central and upper parts of New York, Assemblyman Marc Butler is proposing that gun legislation be dealt with in the same manner. Most of the arrests and convictions from the New York SAFE Act have come from New York City, Butler says, and he thinks that law enforcement officers in Upstate New York have responded differently to the NY SAFE Act than those...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo claims his anti-gun law, known as the SAFE Act, is "the toughest in the nation," but on its three-year anniversary this Thursday it's looking more like a monumental failure. The governor claims his law bans sales of military-style assault weapons. Yet today you can walk into any gun store in New York and walk out with essentially the same kind of gun he intended to ban. The industry has reacted to the law by simply redesigning the guns to avoid the features the law prohibits and which Cuomo apparently believed made them more lethal. Worse, for those...

    Republican politicians have restarted their push to stop Syrian refugees from entering the United States after the FBI announced on Thursday that it had arrested two Iraqi refugees on charges of providing material support to ISIS. "The arrests of these men present a stark warning about the deficiencies of our programs for accepting refugees from Iraq and Syria," Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in a statement on Friday. "Continuing these programs in their current form poses unacceptable risks to our national security that are growing more acute by the day." The House passed...

    Last year,†3,000 gun rights supporters arrived in Albany to protest Gov. Andrew Cuomo's anti-gun SAFE Act. It was such a high profile event, that even today's most prolific headline maker, Donald Trump, was in attendance. While the rally was largely peaceful, participants allege that Cuomo's administration ordered state police to†bully them. State police harassed attendees and confiscated their replica guns, according to groups like the Shooters Committee on Political Education: SCOPE contends Governor Cuomo and his staff orchestrated rules and regulations that were enforced by troopers in order to intimidate protesters and disrupt their demonstration.

    Democrats have spent years believing that one more left-wing justice on the Supreme Court will enable them to overturn the 2nd Amendment. And should they succeed, our most important inalienable rightĖthe one which has secured the continued existence of all the othersĖwould cease to exist. Of course, itís no use telling liberals that the Bill of Rights doesnít work that way; that inalienableóthat is, God-givenĖrights canít be voted, legislated or ruled out of existence. Itís no use because in their collectivist mind the left will have acquired the Holy Grail: constitutional permission to disarm the American people. The question is...

    Cuomo on Sunday defended the parts of the NY Safe Act that remove guns from people deemed mentally unstable, saying the number might be too low. That came after Sunday's New York Times story about the 34,500 people who have been judged too unstable to possess guns since Cuomo signed the gun laws into effect in early 2013.
