No doubt looking to give gun owners a giant black eye, the New York AG is busy going after gun show promoters, blaming them for the actions of criminals. Jacob has video of the
press conference dog and pony show. He notes:
This whole thing smells of a setup.
First off, when was the last time a State Attorney General put on a full court press for a bunch of misdemeanor appearance tickets? Second is the timing.Â H.R. 822Â will be going to theÂ SenateÂ soon for a vote. This has to be an attempt to derail that bill.
Sounds about right. Also, look at these dangerous guns they’ve gotten off the street:
- 3 AR-15 (Assault Rifles)
- 1 semi-automatic rifle called a “Mauser” (from Czech Republic)
- 1 Savage 7mm Rifle
- 1 Remington Model 710
- 1 Colt 7.72 x39
- 1 Enfield Military rifle
- 1 Browning .22 cal, model 235
- 1 Ithaca .22 gauge
- 1 Remington 25.06
Semi-auto Mauser? Really? Either way, I’m glad that gang members won’t have access to an “Ithaca .22 gauge” or a collections of various deer rifles in calibers no one has ever heard of (because they don’t exist). Looks like some hardened criminals Schneiderman is going after here. This isn’t justice, it’s revenge. When you go after otherwise good people for technicalities like this, all to make a political point, you aren’t a public servant, you’r a thug.
The ploy it not going to work anyway. We are going to lay waste to New York’s gun laws bit by bit, and restore the Second Amendment. I savor that even more than New Jersey, because there will be a lot more or the right kind of people in New York unhappy with it, starting with this asshole of an AG, who apparently doesn’t have any real criminals in his state worth going after. He also apparently does not have anyone on staff who knows about guns.
