NEW. New York Law:
"Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current 10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge."
And anyone with a so called assault weapon, which is really just a semi-auto rifle, must register said firearm or become a criminal. If you do, you can keep your gun, if you don't have one you can't have one going forward. What happened to equal protection under the law.
If the 2nd Amendment can be trampled, why not the 1st Amendment? Or any Amendment.
Put yourself in the shoes of one of the parents on the Newtown massacre. Are you a parent? Im sure those pictures weren't a pretty sight. I like my guns as much as the next guy, but asking for stricter background checks and limiting certain guns or magazines is not infringing on my gun ownership rights.
Once a Wingnut always a Wingnut Ray. You are also anti climate change, anti abortion, anti affordable health care and a birther. The Constitution was designed to be a living document. Remember? You, J2 and Franko should live in a small log cabin somewhere in Northern Idaho
Once a constitutionalist, always a constitutionalist, Micro.
You know micro, our founders wrote the document to stop people like yourself from infringing on others rights, liberty, and freedoms in general. They knew people would not change.
And if you are going to accuse me of things, at least be accurate. I am for affordable healthcare , and am not a "birther".
It is not a "living document", that is progressive speak. It does however have mechanisms for change. Where do you think the "Amendments" came from?
There is an amendment process built into the Constitution if it needs to be altered. Until it is amended, it stands as written, as the framers intended it to be. Don't use your "living document" nonsense to take away rights enshrined in the Constitution.
Why do I bother. We already live in a post-Constitutional America because the meaning and words of the Constitution are ignored, circumvented, distorted, disregarded or flaunted by leftists in the courts and government offices.
It's time for the states and the people to reassert their sovereignty against the federal government, as Wyoming and Texas are beginning to do.
rays remember what the ANOINTED ONE said way back when ~2007 In WESTERN PA....'"we cling to OUR guns and our BIBLES"....this in BHOs'way of JUMP STARTING the ECONOMY...GUN SALES are SMOKING!!!
...right out of the Saul Olinski handbook...of RADICALS!
this GUY is classic!
sad how STUPID and SHEEPLIKE the AMERICAN people are today!
I remember it well Frank. Does anyone really think the leftist thinkers in our country would not eliminate the 2nd Amendment and disarm the general public if they could?
But of course they would, and they have done so outside the US where and when possible.
Rays, the Socialist Bigot Hypocrite Liar BHO couldn't care less about the 2nd Amemdment or any other Amendment for that matter. All the Loser wants to do is to destroy America, or what's left of it and recreate it in his Socialist image.
