Mu guess was "Elmer Fudd", you know, the hunters that refuse to line up with other firearm owners because they believe their hunting guns are not threatened. Many of them are just as anti-AR and high capacity sidearms as most liberals. "Who needs that stuff?"

We had some dork hunter here that ranted against funding a new shooting range because hunters did not need it to practice marksmanship. Not kidding.

Upstate NY is famous for hunting. It's often advertised in hunting magazines.
Who's going to want to go to NY now? There goes their hunting license revenue.

Teach your kids to stay out of liberal states. They'll find they've made a huge mistake going into one once they're adults. This is a very important lesson to teach them.
Right now, because of the housing crash, we're stuck in upstate. The property isn't worth what we invested in it at this time (though we're considering downsizing and heading out anyway when our youngest son finds a job of his own).
We've taught our children not to stay in the state. The Penn. border isn't that far away. We've told them to go there when they're ready to settle down.

I am sorry for New Yorkers that believe in a less centralized government, the 2nd Amendment, and freedom. New York has just become worse than New Jersey with respect to gun rights. I benefited from the Australian gun ban and the Canadian registration scheme, I was able to purchase some real nice weapons that belonged to people that lived there and had to sell their weapons or turn them in. Maybe Cuomo just helped weapon collectors in the SE United States.

Do a search for the term “Zumboed.”

In an acknowledgment that many people have suggested that part of the solution to gun violence is a better government response to mental illness, the legislation includes not only new restrictions on gun ownership, but also efforts to limit access to guns by mentally ill people.

This is a creeping dog we should all be aware of.

Sadly, I see some here falling for this as an answer to get the Government off of THEIR backs.

Who decides, Government appointed psychologists who have political agendas? What are the definitions and parameters?

Take their right, don't touch mine?

Cut spending, just don't cut my benefits ring a bell?

"I need to bury some magazines in my walls, that a lot of Sheetrock work I don’t have time for at present."

Next they will show up with metal detectors.

Criminals already do this to find silver I guess.

Can anyone confirm a rumor on the Internet and on YouTube that Bank of America is not allowing any of its customers (bank or credit) to purchase firearms or ammo?

Good thing he got right on it before somebody else gets shot.

As soon as Zer0 signs his E.O.’s we will ALL be safer.

Huge sigh of relief!

I don't understand why New Yorkers are sitting around eating this crap sandwich.

For the same reason they have homosexual pseudo marriages. It was forced upon them against their will. This is what happens when leftists rule.

NYC has so many flaming commies, the place is like a huge rats nest. Upstate tried to separate from the state because it had no say, and it almost worked, until the Jewish in NYC wanted their own state because of their religious beliefs.
Personally, I believe the Jewish did that to defeat the proposal, because NYC Jews vote democrat. NYC welfare needs our money.

Series indeed! Unless these laws are challenged in court as being unconstitutional and ruled as such, they will remain in force. As we have found out on Obamacare and AZ 1070, SCOTUS is not the guardian of our Constitution. They are destroying it.
