Skip to comments.As Many As One Million Armed New Yorkers Are About To Break The Law

This year April 15 is more than the tax deadline for an estimated one million New York State residents. Its also the deadline to register assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. If they dont, theyll begin living outside the law. A lot of them have decided to do just that. Theyve decided to practice civil disobedience even though failure to register an assault weapon by the deadline is punishable as a class A misdemeanor, which means a maximum sentence of one year in prison.
I put assault weapon and high-capacity in quotes because their definitions vary by statetheyre political terms. In New York State, the SAFE Act passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo in January 2013, uses an expansive and elaborate definition of assault weapon that includes a lot more than AR-15s. Now even a semiautomatic Remington Model 1100 shotguna popular shotgun first made in 1963 that is used by millions of hunters and skeet shootersis an assault weapon in New York State if the shotgun has a pistol grip. Many other commonly owned pistols, shotguns and rifles are also now labeled assault weapons in New York State.
When I asked the New York State Police how many New York gun owners had registered the guns they own that now fit somewhere into the states expansive assault weapons category the state responded: New York State Police cannot release information related to the registration of assault weapons including the number of assault weapons registered. Those records you seek are derived from information collected for the State Police database and are, therefore, exempt from disclosure.
This is the same dilemma Connecticut gun owners found themselves in at the end of 2013. As of December 31, 2013, according to Lt. J. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police...

They’re going to send 200 armed BLM officers to surround them.
Last time NYCers registered those the Federal government used the registrations to enforce a new Federal ban on them, it was 1994.
regustration means confiscation.
Never register. Bury them if you must, in cosmoline, but
It violates the 2nd amendtment to requuire registering them,
so civil disobedience is justified.
I would say:
“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.” - Thomas Jefferson
But we are way past that. If you register you put a big target on your back. If you register they will change what is allowed and come for your gun. Canada, Australia, New York city... They do it ALL the time. Registration leads to confiscation, each and every time. Always
I read this forum almost every day and one of the joys I get is the articles about someone blowing the crap out of some home invader - and getting off. Love it! And liberals wonder why the FBI statistics say crime is going down. They think it's the police...har! It's the fact that over the last decade or more that decent citizens are packing.
“New Yawk”, It figures. “New Yawk” has ALWAYS been a TORY Stronghold since before the American Revolution!
That’s One Million votes against Cuomo
Nice Work “Little Prince” Andrew! We could not have done better
An Australian told me that they passed a registration law. Then they went door to door and collected all the guns. I saw a photo of really nice Spencer rifles (US Civil War)being crushed by a road roller.
We must recognize that registering guns is of itself an act of tyranny.
Is registration in person? If not, people need to start “registering” phantom “assault weapons” in leftist’s names and sending in those registrations in droves. Flood and invalidate the system while getting some libtards harassed by their beloved government.
Splendid! Shove Alinsky right down their throats!
This is getting encouraging. Between Connecticut and now New York, the populace is getting fed up, not to mention all the laws being passed by the States that allow either open carry and/or concealed carry.
It is very encouraging that the Statists are losing the people in blue states.

The NY SAFE act web page says you need a Drivers License to register. https://firearms.troopers.ny.gov/safeact/welcome.faces
There almost 20 million peoples in NYSTATE.
We don got it 500,000 armed patriots here in the Ardirondacks, the most sparsely populated area of the state.
Sooo I din figgur we git about 10 million armed in the state, not one million coz everybody outside the cities is armed n dangerous too. Plus each one of them varmit shooters has at least 5 to 10 weapons ready for action against them varmits anytime anyday anyplace-
YEAA I figgur maybe 10 million guns at least is pointin as we speak it here but more like 50 million gums we got ready loaded n sights wetted too.
And of course "those records" were collected legally, right?
I don't believe it for a minute.
The political class relies upon voluntary compliance with their edicts to meet their aims. Without that, they’re impotent busybodies not much different from those you see getting really excitable about the bylaws of their homeowners association.
