New York Governor: Gun Confiscation on the Table
Townhall.com ^ | December 21, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 12/22/2012 7:38:38 PM PST by Kaslin

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is getting his gun control proposals ready and they're looking pretty unconstitutional.

He added that he was focusing his attention on changing state laws restricting the possession of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. The governor described the state’s existing ban on those items as having “more holes than Swiss cheese.”

“I don’t think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, ‘I need an assault weapon to go hunting,’ ” he said. At the same time, he noted that he owns a shotgun that he has used for hunting, and said, “There is a balance here — I understand the rights of gun owners; I understand the rights of hunters.”

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.

Yes, Cuomo is actually suggesting authorities confiscate private property that belongs to law abiding Americans. He is also suggesting permitting these guns, which would put law abiding citizens into a data base and expose to criminals where they can go to steal guns for improper use.

The 2A was not to guarantee the hunter his rights, as you claim to understand. What you fail to grasp is it purpose to protect us from politicians like you and the tyrannical Government you want to impose on us.

It can be on the table. Table exersizes are useful.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they aren't.

Field roll out is going to be a bloody, messy cluster fornication.

I'm sure that there were a hundred thousand "conservative" voters who didn't vote, voted for their local crony democrat, or just voted third party in districts where pubs could have pulled it out and had a solid majority in the state legislatures so the rat governor couldn't pull this crap.....

Obviously in little Andrews world the second amendment is not an option, so how long will it be that he goes after the first amendment, you know just for the public good. After all dissent has such a bad effect on a good orderly society. Oh and let’s not forget hail the government, it is only here to help us, yeah that’s it just to help us.

I thought that California already banned a rifle that they first required registration of, and then later ordered them turned in.

Ross Perot supported door to door confiscation, for those that remember him fondly.

They already left, by the millions.

They live in southeast Florida.

Can we convince them to go back now that New York will be so much safer?

Not only are the Perots award winning fund raisers for Planned Parenthood.

Here are some excerpts from a 1992 Christian Science article, enough for you to start searching if you want more info on the gun issues.

“”The Constitution protects citizens against warrant less searches and confiscation of firearms; it requires “equal protection of the laws,” regardless of race. During a crime wave in Dallas in 1986, Perot set up round-table meetings between police officers and people in the news media. In those meetings, according to Todd Mason, former Dallas bureau chief for Business Week, in his 1990 biography of the businessman: “Perot espoused cordoning off minority neighborhoods and searching door-to-door for weapons and narcotics.”

On NBC’s “Today Show” on Oct. 25, 1989, Perot called for suspending constitutional rights and declaring martial law to combat the drug trade: “You can declare civil war and the drug dealer is the enemy. There ain’t no bail ... [drug dealers] go to POW camp. You can start dealing with the problem in straight military terms.”

“”* On people who dare to invest abroad. (”[Capitalists’] job is to create and protect jobs in America - not Mexico,” Perot says. Such investment may bother Perot because it would fall outside the control of Perot’s hands-on management of the US economy.)

* On people who dare to defend themselves and their families with firearms. (Perot told the National Press Club that he favors gun controls “much tighter” than the Brady Bill.)

* On young people who dare to evade compulsory national service, building roads or emptying bedpans for the federal government. (Perot said in a 1983 interview in the Saturday Evening Post that the US government should make it a “requirement” that “every 18-year-old” young man or woman should do one to two years of such work.)

* On company presidents who dare to earn more than Perot finds acceptable. (Perot says he favors confiscating CEO salaries that he considers excessive.)

* On people who dare to pay less in taxes than the IRS thinks they should. (Perot told the National Press Club he wants the IRS to acquire a “decent computer system” that would ensure that it would take in $100 billion more in taxes.)

Why does a feisty, outspoken business executive have such a Big Government agenda? Perhaps the answer lies in the fact that Perot is America’s first poverty billionaire. Perot made his money by satisfying not ordinary customers in the marketplace, but welfare-state bureaucrats. He developed and administered computer systems to process Medicare and Medicaid claims in states around the country. Perot’s Big Government agenda is really no surprise.””

During the AR ban, Soldier of Fortune magazine ran an article about how to maximize the use of a lever action rifle, to make up some of the loss of a black rifle.

Personally, I prefer my AR for maintaining the sight picture while engaging multiple targets.
