CBS New York ^ | December 22, 2012 | Marla Diamond

Posted on 12/22/2012 4:32:01 PM PST by barmag25

Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.

As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them.

I didn’t think you could have Asphalt rifles in NYC,
it’s against the law or something.

And as far as these leos they should maintain a healthy
respect for their fellow citizens and it will be recipricated.

Tried to buy one today but they are all sold out. Did get a nice Sig 226 though.

They can’t have that either.

What for? I thought all guns were already illegal in NYC. Seems the coppers can’t wait to start bustin’ down doors.

They didn’t confiscate anything during the first ban, already-owned guns were grandfathered. I think the writer of this story is confused, as the media always are.

They normally don't let that slip out in these stories.

Anyway, here it is, reported by CBS.

The problem we have is that these liberal dolts
are just stupid and sanctmonious enough to try it.

I never thought I would see it in my life time but
now I don’t see any way around it.

It won’t be long before the surviving cops won’t be so eager to try to confiscate someone’s rightfully owned property.

Yeah. But now we have a dictator who is known to have killed hundreds to get his way on gun control.

The only gun control measure that would have an eventual impact on “gun deaths” is 100% confiscation. Just how much blood would that spill? It would certainly give the proponents an autocratic tyranny. What they are trying now is to soften up their enemies.

One way or another, Obama may be the last president.

will those 2,500, 10-ton homeland defense vehicles, be used in the confiscation? will the goons sit inside the vehicles, while parked in our front yards, & demand our weapons, through a loud speaker? what will it take to penetrate one of those vehicles?

“This is a very dangerous path to go on.”

And you think they would realize the enormity of what they just pondered - can they really be that stupid? Have they thought of the implications?

DO THEY THINK THEY’RE JUST GOING TO GO DOOR-TO-DOOR AND TAKE THEM??

"among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them."

Other than a few that might be in the hands of organized crime bosses and drug dealers, I can't imagine that there are very many "assault rifles" within the boundaries of New York City.

It's virtually impossible just to get a pistol permit there, unless you're a celebrity with national name recognition.

This would be fun to watch from the other side of the Hudson!

(I have visited that cesspool exactly once since 9/11, and I'm hoping not to go back any time soon.)

I am not sure what I would do.

Right now I don’t even have any supposed “assault rifles”, tho I do have some high capacity pistol mags.

Around 20 years ago, I bought 30 high capacity mags for the HK-91 thinking I would buy one before too long. These were used but look fine and the price was really good. Still haven’t made the purchase but I guess the mags would be good to sell.

Actually there are so many high capacity mags out there that the price might not go up all that much.

Although the Constitution seems irrelevant to these folks, I refer them to Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3.

I believe confiscating guns that were legally purchased would violate the prohibition of ex post facto, as well as the 2nd amendment.

Probably not since the ban will likely mirror the prior one which simply banned their sales...........

All those high capacity magazines my buddy bought for investment purposes might just become valuable again.........

When they come for your guns give them something. Anything. Plan ahead and have a little ‘giveaway’ collection. Smile, tell them you understand and wish them good health. Take names and remember faces. :-)

"if Congress were to reinstate the ban"

The same Congress that's in open rebellion with Boehner over a tax increase on millionaires, many of whom don't even support Republicans? That one? It's going to roll over and ban all black, scary, ugly rifles?

I wouldn't put it past Obama trying something with an executive order. But then there's that Constitution thing.

They aren't confused. They are hopeful. Many socialist pundits are calling for confiscation.

We are entering into "use it or lose it" territory folks.
