On to New York

Via Uncle, in the NY Senate. Features?

  • Very similar to the ban in Illinois. Broad ban on most modern firearms and pump actions. Vertical foregrips are also now an evil feature. Blanket authority for state police to ban guns not suitable for sporting purposes.
  • Ends grandfathering for magazines. Turn them in.
  • Makes possession of a modern firearm a first degree crime instead of a third degree crime. You’ll go away for a long time for possessing a modern firearm manufactured after the enactment of this bill.

The push continues.

    Looking closely at the proposed bill, it would also ban possession of any pistol CAPABLE of accepting over ten rounds. So whereas now New Yorkers can own a Beretta 92fs or a Sig P226 (etc.) as long as they only own 10-round mags, if this becomes law we’ll have to surrender our handguns as well.

  2. LC Scotty says:

    Matt, if I read it correctly, that 10 round prohibition is for pistols with fixed magazines.

    • Matt says:

      Seems to be that it separates a “semi-automatic pistol” from “any semi-automatic, centerfire rifle with a fixed magazine”:

      (B) SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOL, OR ANY SEMI-AUTOMATIC, CENTERFIRE RIFLE
      WITH A FIXED MAGAZINE, THAT HAS THE CAPACITY TO ACCEPT MORE THAN TEN
      ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION;

    Maryland is next. Our session opens next week and we fully expect everything we see elsewhere to be repeated here. None of this is original thinking. It’s all coordinated.

    Of note in Maryland, the legislators who will be pushing this are not pre-filing their bills are sharing drafts outside tightly closed doors. If this were a shoe-in, they wouldn’t be hiding.

    They have the advantage right now. We’ll all need to work to stop it in New York, Maryland, California and in the US Congress. And anywhere else they try to go.

      Every gun is suitable for sporting purposes, if you define the sport properly.

    Might cause some people to be expecting to go away forever. Expectations being expectations.

    They truly believe possessing a firearm is a worse crime than shooting somebody with the firearm, kidnapping somebody with a firearm, raping said kidnap victim…

    They love their Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals who attack capitalist American society. It’s private gun owners who threaten the authority of the totalitarian Marxist state they envision that they hate.

      Or more specifically, it’s an essential part of anarcho-tyrrany, where the criminal class is in a tacit alliance with the ruling class. Keep the population defenseless, and then keeping on the good side of the government that controls the police is a matter of life or death. If an area votes the wrong way, or in New Labour’s world view are class enemies like the rural part of the country (Tony Blair was quite explicit about his goal to destroy “rural culture”), withdraw police protection and and let the criminals severely punish them.

      (Although the U.K. gets bonus points for its self-defense laws that make it illegal to use more force than is being used on you, even if the latter is lethal force.)

        That makes perfect sense. Cuomo has made promises to empty the state’s prisons. He also has mob ties from back when his father was governor (he got a free parking space at the Javits Convention Center when the mafia ran the place). Disarming law-abiding citizens fits right into his plan.

        I wasn’t aware of the term “anarcho-tyranny” before. But that perfectly describes NYC Democrats.

        • Harold says:

          The latest figures I saw for outstanding gun permits were around or less than 50K for all 8 million of NYC’s subjects (can’t call them citizens). That’s less than half compared to when the USSR cracked down on Soviet Georgia and we realized that infamous police state allowed a greater per-capita gun ownership in Georgia than NYC did. Note these are for all guns, NYC doesn’t like you owning a long gun either.

          If you want to learn more about anarcho-tyranny you might start with the writings of arch paleoconservative Samuel T. Francis. He probably won’t be entirely to your taste, but he will encourage you to think.
