    I think that the tactics used in Colorado are more effective. Get rid of the scum that push the rules through the system.

    Two hundred fifty thousand New York gun owners all squeezed off a round in protest simultaneously? That is impressive.

    Maybe not all 250k, but nevertheless... Impressive.

    Reminds me of what I wanted to do on Patriot's day....

    Hm. But will that shot actually be heard in Albany and NYC by the politicos? Somehow, I doubt it, other than to give them cause to jump down their throats.

    Can't hear if you're not listening.

    It's NY. The Loyalist Subjects now outnumber the rabble-rousers and are busy voting away their freedoms to a Government all to eager too eager to receive them.

    I fear the largely failed systems in these states will eventually pollute all states, as the ratio of stupid and slothful to industrious and independent increases each year.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    150,000? Where'd that number come from, and who did the counting?

    Ammo is still in short supply most everywhere. In NY they can no longer buy it from on-line sources.

    My take is that this unlawful commerce and restraint of trade. It should be challenged.

    In the mean-time, It would make sense if some of the sporting gun clubs in NY joined forces to form ammo buying clubs. It's a little easier to get if the quantities are large enough to buy direct from the manufactures.

    I'm sure the SAF and GOA are drooling over all the apparently unconstitutional infringements out there, including some of the key crap from NY, NJ, CA and elsewhere. Hopefully they'll be able to kick a good number of these things in the teeth, and get the judges on board with sane and rational constitutional thinking. That'd be nice.
