Posted on 01/15/2013 2:43:29 PM PST by Red Steel
ALBANY Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law on Tuesday a sweeping package of gun control measures, significantly expanding a ban on assault weapons and making New York the first state to change its laws in response to the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.
Mr. Cuomo signed the bill less than an hour after the State Assembly approved the legislation on a 104-to-43 vote. The State Senate approved the measure, 43 to 18, on Monday night.
The expanded ban on assault weapons broadens the definition of such weapons, banning semiautomatic pistols and rifles with detachable magazines and one military-style feature, as well as semiautomatic shotguns with one military-style feature. New Yorkers who already own such guns can keep them but will be required to register them with the state.

Nope, they didn’t. Read the whole thing. It didn’t specify how many rounds of what, or even that it be the round intended for the mag, just that it could hold more than 7.
Likewise, short shells in lever action rifles could also be used.
Better make that 5 month (week would be better) and send your affected arms out of state until you can. Got anyone that doesn’t like you and knows you have firearms? All they’ll have to do is drop a dime.
Extrapolate from there.
Start the lawsuits.
Talk about jumping the gun. How many months passed after it was clear that the US government was gun running to Mexican drug cartels before anything was done?
Congratulations, Governor. Now, how are you gonna get them?
Anyone Know when this new law goes into effect ?
What is a lawful gun owner?
I think we need to get away from that terminology since anyone who is not committing a crime at the time is by definition lawful.
IMO, opening up the "lawful" meme invites speculation to a "Minority Report" scenario....especially when it comes to "mental health" issues.
Indian Reservations sell cigarettes avoiding some tax issues. Maybe they should look into selling ammunition too.
This bill was brought up for vote in the Senate at 11:00 at night under cover of darkness. Ignoring a mandatory three day commentary period, they voted in this travesty in 20 minutes. The Assembly voted today, again ignoring the three day commentary. Cuomo signed it into law this afternoon. In all this thing was jammed through both houses and signed in less than 24 hours. This is what passes for democracy in neeorkistan. sd
NO snark intended, but series??
Well, now that all in NY are safe, they can disband all police departments or if not, down size them, remove their weaponry and reduce their pensions more in line with that of teachers.
What's that? The cops have no intention of giving up their firepower? But why, what is the threat that they need it all for?
I think it is FUBAR but cleaned up...lol!
Considering it is generally a lot cheaper to live in the South a 50% pay cut might not be as hard to take as you think. SC would also welcome you.
“The provision will mandate a life sentence without parole for anyone who murders a first responder.”
Some animals are more equal than others.
Guess there will be a lot of “boating” accidents.
All you need to know about NY is that the urban areas over power the rest of the state. The RNC want to play nice nice with the dems and allows redistricting to squeeze out solid conservatives. One trip to NYC and you know this state is lost. There is nothing left to fight for. The dems crush liberty and the GOP caves at the slightest pressure. The state government is corrupt. They consistently legislate against the people. They all hide behind their walls of safety.
I think the latest Cuomo move will end up with a lesson in the law of unintended consequences. I am not sure what it is but I can be safe in saying it will not be the safe place he claims he is making. As for me, I am working to jump ship. Think of it as a personal scuttling of the state. This place is making me physically ill.
You sound like a freedom fighter to me......time to feed the pigs
