The Resistance Begins: New York Gun Owners Refuse to Register; “Largest Act of Civil Disobedience in State History”

Mac Slavo
January 25th, 2013

With emotions running high in the aftermath of the Newtown Sandy Hook shooting, politicians on the State and Federal level have begun introducing legislative actions to curtail access to firearms protected by the Second Amendment. In Missouri, parents may soon be forced to register firearms with their child’s school under threat of criminal penalties. In Massachusetts, another proposal would require storage of semi-automatic rifles at government approved storage depots. And, in the State of New York, congressional representatives have already passed legislation that requires registration of every semi-automatic rifle and reduces maximum magazine capacity to 7 rounds of ammunition, and Governor Cuomo has floated the idea of gun confiscation.

Now, in what is sure to be a growing trend across the entire country, New York gun owners are organizing a resistance against what many believe to be the most, “brazen infringement on the right to keep and bear arms anywhere in the nation,” according to The New American:

Preparations are already being made for mass resistance.

“I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes,’’ said President Brian Olesen with American Shooters Supply, among the biggest gun dealers in the state, in an interview with the New York Post.

Even government officials admit that forcing New Yorkers to register their guns will be a tough sell, and they are apparently aware that massive non-compliance will be the order of the day. “Many of these assault-rifle owners aren’t going to register; we realize that,’’ a source in the Cuomo administration told the Post, adding that officials expect “widespread violations” of the new statute.

Threats of imprisoning gun owners for up to a year and confiscating their weapons are already being issued by governor’s office, headed by a rabid anti-Second Amendment extremist who suggested before the bill passed that “confiscation” of all semi-automatic rifles was being considered. If tens or even hundreds of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens refuse to comply, however, analysts say New York would either have to start raising taxes and building a lot more prisons, or give up on the scheme that experts say will do nothing to reduce violence and that lawmakers say is aimed at eventual confiscation.

Activists involved in the state-wide boycott against the unconstitutional statute who spoke to the Post almost taunted authorities, saying gun owners would essentially dare authorities to “come and take it away.”

According to the paper, leaders of some of the state’s hundreds of gun clubs, dealers, and non-profit organizations, citing the New York Constitution’s guarantee that gun rights “cannot be infringed,” are currently involved in organizing the resistance. Among the primary concerns is that, with registration, authorities would know where to go for confiscation, an idea already proposed openly by Governor Cuomo himself.

“They’re saying, ‘F— the governor! F— Cuomo! We’re not going to register our guns,’ and I think they’re serious. People are not going to do it. People are going to resist,” explained State Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King, who also serves on the National Rifle Association board of directors. “They’re taking one of our guaranteed civil rights, and they’re taking it away.”

Opponents of the right to bear arms, take heed. The American people know what you’re up to and they will not stand for it.

The resistance has begun.

Wow. Kinda makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. I’m working my way through the book, and was intending to highlight the good parts. But there are so many good parts, the book is mostly yellow so far.

Make sure that you also register all your Hello Kitty Bubble pistols and nerf guns.

After all, people are being cuffed at schools and kicked out for posession.

Those NY gun register Nazis will be kept very busy.

That’s an excellent response, requires no proof, no need to show reports of accident,loss or theft, no receipts required...Perfect.

“I lost them in a boating accident”, is overplayed and invokes suspicion, buy back is after all a Gov’t program.

As someone who’s Sicilian grandfather was forced to leave Italy and came to NYC, I am ashamed of Cuomo’s Italian ancestry.

They have no plans to take guns from violent criminals, just from non-violent law-abiding citizens. This is intentional. They want violent criminals to rob, rape and kill non-violent, law-abiding citizens.

Because most violent criminals are just poor, downtrodden, oppressed, victims of discrimination who vote democrat and are not responsible for their actions against the evil, privileged, oppressors who vote Republican.

What the NY pols will more likely do is try to make a few examples out of a select number of non-compliance death-assault-weapons owners. We’ll be seeing special teams surrounding ‘extremist compounds’ and ‘white-separatists encampments’ and ‘radical enclaves’ in the near future.

The state will just fight back. Cancel your drivers license, withold your state tax refund, etc.

The state has to know you have the weapon, to know enough to cancel your license. It's those folks the State doesn't know about that pose the problem.

“NOPE, the date is April 15th, 2014 to complete registration.

Assault weapons must be sold off by 15 January 2014 to avoid registration. “

Thank you for the clarification.

You are correct. Tom Delassandrio was a ‘protected Sicilian’. Which means he was not a made guy but he and his family were under the recognized protection of the made guys. Touch Tom or his immediate family you are messing with the mob. This status is permanent and adheres to his children and their children for their lives. So this evil woman is in a sense a creature of the mob. Tom D as mayor of Baltimore, presided over an administration that was foully corrupt even by Baltimore standards. He was an evil weaselly little man whose eyes gleamed with feral malice and dark knowledge.

Yes!

Here is a video you would like to watch of a Chinese man in front of the Massachusetts State Legislature, a naturalized US citizen. I do not think Feinstein’s initiative will survive long, even if passed as a bill into law:

Thank you for responding I’ve been slathering postings in FR’s with campaign suggestions such as what you responded to for years and I began to feel it’s been a waste of time .

Chicago political “mechanics” is “in your face” campaigning not the woosy tippy toey krap the GOPES use . That’s because GOPES rely on issue polling created by the mainlining socialist media and respond to it and not to the “bread and butter” concerns of the average voter which cuts across all demographics. Check out my website
http://www.theusmat.com/ This site discusses why Republicans lost and what I mean about issues..

A word about the achronym choice G(government)O(of)P(the people)ES(elite(s)I like it because it’s easier to associate the meaning if you change the letter G to a D.
While you will never find a GOPE refering to a member of the Democrat party as a Demo-Com it rolls out easier than what they really are which is fascist. Inmelt and Buffett are fascist pigs as well as others that includes Pelosi,Reid, and dozens of others who have used their political party influence or position to advance their station in life at the expence of the tax payer.

I also have one about campaigning http://www.theusmat.com/home.htm which I haven’t updated in 2+ years.

There’s a “central command” the demo-coms are using and why their campaign themes are uniform. Often those assertions are so subtle that their direction is obfuscated until they emerge later and it becomes clear what they’re after.Usually an attack on the constitution. If you watch ABC,NBC,CBS, CNN etc they pound away with the same propaganda line sometimes offering a variation on a theme. But they don’t deviate from the topic.

What I advocated particularly in Free Republic and had posted a vanity on it. Was when a posting a “news” outlet report propaganda. Do a review. citing the article source (where published) and the authors name and take the piece apart. That also should be done with network news.
more later

I know. I learned that from my Irish father-in-law who used to do exactly that in the East Boston Italian club. He tried to tweak me with that line too. Didn’t work.

Brooklyn used to be HEAVILY Italian immigrant. Is it still that way? Eastie has totally changed since the 70s...
