    BUFFALO, NY – Buffalo Police say they’re determined to get more guns off the streets and now they’re checking to see whether pistol permit holders have passed away and what happened to their gun or guns.
    They would have much better success controlling crime if they would focus on taking the criminals off the street instead although that may be too hazardous for their tastes.

    Just another excuse to Confiscate Guns.

    Dear City of Buffalo:

    The reason you have so much crime is that your economy is crap, and there are no jobs, everyone is poor, and your public schools are terrible. Your crime rate has nothing at all to do with a couple of guns that belonged to a couple of people who died, and which now belong to their families. Fix the real problems. It's not really a mystery what those problems are.

    Thank you.

    "Some police agencies give families of the deceased permit holder 15 days to sell or transfer a weapon or weapons held with the permit to another permit holder or a dealer."

    I don't know NY firearms laws well, but in PA you do not need a permit to own a firearm. So why would anyone even consider giving up a gun, and the way it's worded they are given an ultimatum ?

    Lots of thoughts about New York! Nothing favorable!
    Guns from dead people? A lot less effort and virtually no resistance!
    Looking at the politicians in office in NY, makes me wonder why anyone might be surprised! TKH

    Having been a former Buffalonian and State Commissioned Police Officer in New York State, I can tell you that you must have a permit issued by your county of residence to purchase/own/possess a handgun. Additionally, you need a City permit for a handgun in New York City.

    Only if the dead people vote the "right" way.

    Dead conservatives in NY either convert, or they can't vote!

    This is why we say no to the permit system, these ghouls should be fighting real crimes, they should be busting heads in the ghetto were most of the crime comes from, instead they’re bothering grieving families with their irrational fears against guns.
    Naaaa; this isn't the truth.

    The truth is that laws are written and enforced upon those who can't fight back.

    The law can not contain nor control the criminal element; so to prove it's usefulness, "they" go after law abiding citizens. Pretty simple concept in reality.

    Ever see a speed trap in the poor neighborhoods?
    How about a sobriety check point down the road from a moose or elk lodge or Mason's meeting late Saturday night? Ya, you know; it's where a few judges and attorneys might be bending their elbows.

    Hey, wait a minute! If the law is going after the average hard working American and attempting to stop the transfer of guns via deceased records; isn't that kinda' like a confiscation?

    Next thing ya' know, the Gov will wield power over you and me..and we have no way to fight back?

    Oh wow!

    You MUST? Exactly whom is you referring too?? The dead law abiding folks? The live law abiding folks who shouldnt need a permit to own a gun anyway?
    Or the thousands on thousands of folks who MUST but dont? Most of which other than disobeying a unconstitutional law are law abiding citizens?

    Or maybe we are talking about actual violent criminals and violent felons in NY state that we all know MUST have that little piece of NY letterhead and are as we speak waiting in line to get one?

    MUST is a word that runs right along with never and always.
