No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.

I admit that I didn't read all the posts in this thread so if this has been covered I apologize. I found it interesting that in the video State Senator Diaz admitted that the bill won't do anything as a practical matter, but he feels it helps work on the minds of the people. He basically says they need to change people's attitudes about guns. I agree that this is a big part of the anti's efforts. They will still try to pass laws that are as restrictive as possible, while at the same time they are hoping that the number of gun owners and potential future gun owners will begin to see guns as evil and therefore will no longer be gun owners, or at least will willingly go along with more and more restrictive laws. Unfortunately this may just work.
It seems the tough talk has found its way to the legislative chambers. Its sorely needed if these law-makers are going to get the message of exactly what it is that they started, but this may be the true test of whether law enforcement will hold up their end of either defending the constitution or blindly following the orders of Comrade Cuomo. Hold your breath kiddies, this could be the start.

Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME.
If everyone in the state that was opposed sent their law makers an anonymous envolope with an empty shell casing in it, perhaps that would get the point across.

We are waiting for NRA and other NY organizations to formally get things going legally. Because they are the only ones with the $ to take this as high as it needs to go in the courts here in NYS.
So we will see! State Police are looking to hire 330 new troopers this year. Tin foil hat people are saying that's the new SS... others just realize that they have been understaffed.

Good for you New York. Keep pounding on the people who hold Public Office there. Never give up. They were voted in, and can be removed by your next round of votes.

Ah gee, the New American is a publication of the John Birch society, a fringe group of fascists. Just how does this help our cause with the majority of gun owners, let alone the majority of Americans. It simply reinforces the idea that 2A supporters are fringe, racist fanatics who do not know that the commies already lost
