Here's the Audio of the NY Gov. Talking Gun Control: 'Confiscation Could Be an Option'
The Blaze ^ | 12/21/12 | Becket Adams

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that all options, including confiscation and “mandatory sales to the state,” would be on the table next month when the New York State Legislature debates new gun control measures. The comments were specifically aimed at what might happen should stricter rules be imposed on “assault” weapons and high-capacity magazines.

The governor said he plans on proposing a package of gun legislation in his State of the State address on Jan. 9.

“There’s a big difference of opinion on these issues,” Gov. Cuomo said today during a radio interview with Albany’s WGDJ-AM.

Mr. Cuomo explained that because gun control hasn’t been a recent topic of discussion in the capital, he has chosen to reach out to lawmakers to see where they stand on the issue before he submits his final proposal.

Are you being facetious or do you seriously not know that George Pataki signed an “assault weapon” ban several years ago?

What your missing is that the scenario you played out would be the first shots.....no doubt...

Then, a large number of us would go “hunting”....switch from defense to offense....

This would not be a “civil war”, this would be a realignment of government....

SCOTUS has ruled that gun ownership is a right

I couldn't give two sh!ts what those black robes have to say about my God-given rights. I don't grant them the power to rule one way or the other on them.

Exactly how would they go about confiscating guns? Search everyone’s home? Lock people up if they are on record for having purchased a gun but have not turned them in. Seems like an exercise in futility.

Or suicide...

I know Pataki signed the bill against larger tha 10 round mags. You can walk into ANY gunstore and buy an AR-15 ThereNY compliant.

I just read that Want Ad Digest pulled all gun ads. You could pick up pre-ban AR’s & AK’s at will.

What am I missing?

The fact that such an incident would spark millions upon millions of Americans to fully implement the exercise of their 2nd Amendment rights.

They can’t round up 20 million+ ILLEGALS, what makes them think they can round up 300+ million guns?

Exactly how would they go about confiscating guns?

What a farce.

This coming from the side who said the gov't couldn't deport 12 million illegals because it didn't have the manpower or money...

So how are they going to find something that can be stored in a small space?

It's not like you can get small wooden box, dismantle, lubricate, and store in a hole millions of Mexicans for retrieval years later...

Oh wait....

this is the left presenting an extreme position to shock the citizenry so that when they propose their real legislation, we all breathe a collective sigh of relief that they are only banning most of the guns, not all.

Nailed it

"...'Confiscation Could Be an Option'..."

PLEASE try it Cuomo, please...it will be all the reason we need to start "cleaning house". It's time to use the "last box" or American culture is dead.

One dead LEO of some alphabet agency per household if they try it: they can't endure a war of attrition.

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

Ok but NY compliant isn’t an “assault weapon” per NY law. Pre ban is still an assault weapon, just preban. I think we are arguing semantics.
