Skip to comments.New York Gun Control Law Exposed: 15 More Measures Left Out Of Final Bill
Posted on 01/21/2013 7:35:26 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
New York passed the toughest gun control laws in the nation last week. The SAFE Act called for a new assault weapons ban, among other measures. Over this past weekend, New York State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin revealed other measures that were removed from the final bill that was eventually signed into law.
These 15 measures were pulled from the final bill:
1. Confiscation of "assault weapons"
2. Confiscation of ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder's information to be replaced to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as "assault weapons
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons
This list reveals that gun control advocates were pushing for even harder measures to be included in the bill. But what is most telling is that these advocates were calling for confiscation of so-called "assault weapons" as well as the confiscation of magazines over five_rounds, which would be almost all magazines. Another point to note is that these measures also called for a "database" or registry of all firearms in the state as well as a fee-for-licensing as well as registering.
A Democrat in the assembly urged McLaughlin not to share this list as it would serve to "dampen compromise."(continued)

I’m old enough to remember those wonderful old guns. Just right for plinking as well as rabbits,squirrels and bull frogs.
What this law said is that New Yorkers live in a totalitarian state, have a dictator for governor and have lost all formerly guaranteed constitutional rights and freedoms.
My dad and grandfather began teaching me about the Constitution and our nation’s founding principles when I was six years old.
I was fascinated by it and very appreciative of the rights we enjoy.
Then I had a second grade teacher who was a wonderful and brilliant lady.
She spent months going through the Bill of Rights, and sent a great deal of time talking about the importance and significance of the Second Amendment and an armed populace.
She discussed how we were so unique in that our founders wanted the government to fear us, not the other way around.
I owe a lot to my family and that public school teacher forthe early development of my political ideology.
I was of course raised in a Christian home too, and the values I was raised with are roots that took hold early and survived the trials of college and early adulthood.
My point is that I agree with you. Far too many people don’t have a clue what this country was founded on or why they should even care.
Most politicians don’t want people to know either, which is why kids are not taught these things anymore in public schools.
