NY Gov. Cuomo: Gun Confiscation “Could Be An Option” (XX BARF)
The Right Sphere ^ | December 21, 2012 2:14 pm | Posted by Brandon Kiser

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Thursday that he had started discussions with leaders of the State Legislature about new gun control measures, and that he planned to propose 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,” Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said in an interview on an Albany radio station.

The New York Assembly, controlled by Democrats, has voted for a number of proposed gun control measures in recent years, only to have the legislation falter in the Senate, which has been controlled by Republicans. (Starting next month, the Senate is to be led by a coalition of Republicans and a breakaway faction of Democrats.)

In the interview, Mr. Cuomo did not offer specifics about the measures he might propose, but, while discussing assault weapons, he said: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

I am speechless at the audacity of the NY Commie DEMS.

First Bloomberg and now this cretin.

Is the Constitution truly dead?

On the flip side can you imagine DC confiscating the guns in Texas? hee hee hee

Do they have a few things to learn. Will NOT HAPPEN.....

Andy and Mike should walk through the city hand in hand, knocking on the doors to collect them. Especially in the s**tty areas.

Oh no. All they have to do is ask them to turn them into their nearest police station.

BREAKING on FB:

“BUCKLE UP PEEPS

I got a call this past Sunday.

A friend of mine sourced a former Pentagon employee, said Natl’ Guard troops had been activated and that door to door would start in three weeks in NJ.

LOL, it would definitely not be that little weasel Cuomo doing the confiscating.

Anyway, I’m glad the governor of New York made his statement for the record. Now the NRA and other supporters of Constitutional Second Amendment rights have all the ammo they need to tell the scumbag rats who want to “register” guns and/or gun owners to go play in the street.

As for me, I will continue to purchase my guns privately.

Pilot project in gun-unfriendly NJ?

Would not want to be a NJ National Guardsman at this time. Might be very hazardous duty.

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms.  History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.  Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.   So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.”

- Adolf Hitler, dinner talk on April 11, 1942

“If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”
- Joseph Stalin

“The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements. … They were elements of disorder and subversion.  On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind.  This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.”
- Benito Mussolini, address to the Italian Senate, 1931

Remember all those rounds of ammo the feds just
Purchased and those FEMA combat vehicles seen throughout the country?.

They will demonise thru the prestitutes and shills
then attack pockets of areas to Persuade the rest to capitulate.

It is my opinion this is the plan Zero et al wanted to
Enact by running guns in fast and furious but some
Dedicated American patriots blew the whistle on that.

Here in Connecticut, they already are:

I read somewhere else that the feds are visiting ALL the gunshops where Nancy Lanza had purchased her weapons....

To quote the late Charlton Heston, you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold, dead hands. Don’t come knockin’ on my door because you won’t like my greeting.

Dittos to that ‘Rush!! Another OT here and God only knows how long left to go now. If the results of a ‘Bring it’ scenario means ending up as my check out time....I’m 100% fine with that. Weapons? No boating accidents and I have one heck of a LOT of ‘em on hand, hunting, varmint, (My favorites), target, trap, plinkin’, collectibles etc. accrued over the long years. (Finally getting into buying a few of those AR style jobs the last 3 years), and there is no way in heck any of ‘em are going anywhere that I do not want them going. They will be handed down to family, not handed in to the Gov.

It’s the consequences that matter, not the options.

I’m interested in what Scalia thinks about all this — not to say his thoughts represent the final view.

They will go after the Militias with full military might
With live video broadcast on CNN to show “us” how radical the gun folks are and to show The average joe they mean business!

After that there will be lines of people not seen
since the food kitchens of the 30s of sheep
handing in their firearms for fear of the boot of
Zero’s Gestapo aided by their freshly trained
youth ( fema) brownshirts.

Sounds very possible ‘51 and yeah, there will be those that meekly submit and turn in their weapons. There will also be a large group of the American people, (I’ll include a LOT of we FReepers in that group, young and old), that will ‘go down swingin’.

Maybe Obama really does want to be like Lincoln.

It’s bad enough he’s dictating law, spying and spending via exec. order.

Be interesting to see him try to round up all the guns in the US, dictating the end of the second amendment.

We live in interesting times.

Will threatening to take away NYers First Amendment rights finally wake up more NYers?
