ALBANY LOBBYING FOR "NY SAFE ACT" (Day of Action) Governor Cuomo and our legislature passed the "NY SAFE ACT." It will reduce gun violence in our state.

Ok, I think I have a plan. (This is long, so if you need, just read the beginning and conclusion paragraphs)
I’m going to reserve a seat tomorrow. I’ll report back here and tell everyone what questions they are asking. I seriously don’t think they will have information on you to confirm the seat or to track back to you in any way.
I have to drive through NYS state day anyway, but Albany is 2.5 hours out of my way, and Syracuse is literally 6 hours out of my way. I’m talking about 2 full tanks of gas to do this operation, and I would have to leave at about 4 am.
In my experience in these union events, everyone will meet and get psyched up at the original point. They will be instructed on which bus to board, where they will be going, and will be promised a private speech with someone at the end point.
People are loaded onto a bus, they stop for mcdonalds, and then they arrive at the capitol in front of the building. There they are led into the building and seated / stood in a large meeting room or hall.
The expectation is to have a speech delivered by the Dem who works with the Union. There is a chance that it may be a speech from Cuomo himself. The chances of seeing this and recording such an event isn’t worth the hours and hours of driving I have to do, have someone pick me up at the destination (for extraction) and then somehow return to my life.
It would be great to get someone on FR who is near these places to do the InfilOp and get some footage, but those chances are slim.
If I were closer (I don’t know how, really, I live on the damned state border and any closer would be to live under tyranny) I would do this, but I simply can’t gather the funds, time, and people necessary to make this a success.
If someone else wants to get involved, message me, and maybe we can pool resources. Ideally I will be travelling along 84 that day, and skipping that god forsaken state as much as I can.
As far as our actions now and in the future - Violence isn’t the answer that we are looking for. Our opposition uses many things that can be easily sabotaged and used in our advantage without a single shot being fired. The modern battlefield (Of which history will recall that we have been mired in since 2000) is not fought with classic strategies. One can not simply show up at a meeting of communists and traitors and open fire and claim victory. What you can do is sabotage their coffee makers, the PA systems, the buses, the cameras, and shut down their spirit. These people’s spirits are based on what goodies they get.
You see, at the end of the day, our opposition isn’t an invading army. It’s our own countrymen (For better or for worse). We can’t just lash out at them, or else they will build a case against us that will ultimately lose a war regardless of weapons that are in play.
Key: Whatever you do, make it FUNNY. These people HATE funny things done to them. Obama HATES being made fun of. These people are very small, very crushed people who simply lack the control over their lives that a truly free person has - The freedom to laugh if their car gets spray painted. When you are crushed underfoot, little things ruin your life. When you’re “big” and in control of your destiny, the important things are the protected things.
Enough of the philosophy though. The action :
Show up to a rally with a quadrotor drone (That you own). Record them. Hover just over their heads. Let them know what they are dealing with.
Mix it up. Show up to rally, offer to hold a sign, then alter the sign with a marker and stand amongst them. Get in photos. Record their actions. It’s funny as hell.
Get in front of cameras as a liberal. Say stupid stuff, dress like a moron, cross your eyes - whatever. They HATE that. Keep it humorous though.
Here is one that I do, it’s not really “Legal” but it’s not really “Illegal” either. I walk amongst the crowds and pick their pockets. I don’t keep stuff, I just take it out of their pockets and drop it on the ground immediately. Cell phones, keys, money, whatever. Total chaos. I have a small pair of shears that fits in my sleeve. Their ID badges, pocket books, whatever - On the ground. I cut their shoelaces so they are too short to tie. Things that could have just “happened”.
Union reps are known people. You can get their cell phone numbers (Most don’t even use a desk phone) and hand the number out. Craigslist ads, free listings. Even respond to craiglist ads with their numbers. Make them wonder they are getting a ton of call-backs for shoddy apartments in Chicago.
All of this stuff is easy to do, fun, and makes more of an impact on them than any violent action.
Cloward Piven strategies taught them that they could destroy the system that they don’t want by merely overloading it. Well, it appears that they now own the system - So use the same tactics. Overload their public organizing, overload their emails, their cell phones, their voicemails. Park so close to their driver’s door that they can’t get in their car. They love that stuff. They do it all the time.
When it comes to the Gun Control rallies, we are in a different state of affairs. Listen to me: The lines are already drawn. The state of NY is GOING to get a complete gun ban. There is no fight left to fight anymore. The state was lost when the elected officials in play got their positions - It was part of their election.
We are GOING to get a federal ban. I have heard the phrase “We need to have a discussion about common sense gun laws” a billion times already. We have had the conversation. The elite officials have said “I want to ban guns” and the people have overwhelmingly said “No.” Conversation over. Albany has already had one of the best “Discussions” about gun bans, where the people actually stated (I’m amazed) “What are the penalties if we say no?” The conversation is over at that moment. They want to keep “talking” but what they are doing is “Unilaterally deciding” We all know this. Stop showing up. Start caching. The lines are already drawn, and enforcement is already in play - even though the laws haven’t been passed.
The signs are posted. If your town or county hasn’t declared it’s pro 2nd-amendment stance, then it is not friendly to patriots.
In conclusion, my post is about balance. We can’t just declare war and start shooting people. We can’t just sit and let it happen, and contacting representatives shows no sign of success. What’s left to do is hunker down in an area where you are welcome, becoming more local-oriented, and striking back at the progressives using tactics that are shown to work. “Hacktivism”, Humor, and living well are things that Progressives HATE. So do that. You know you are on the right track when they call out to lawmakers to jail you, or you see your actions on the news.
For instance, Progressives HATE pro gun t-shirts. They HATE seeing blacks with a conservative vote. They HATE seeing women in positions of power, and women who hold conservative values. And they HATE all minorities. You can tell because of how they attack these people incessantly. They don’t seem to be bothered by gun owners (for reasons I have stated before) because Gun owners play right into their tactics. They see us as irritated, frustrated, and prone to lash out. Like a bully, they zero in on your actions. So play their game. Zero in on the stuff that makes them go ballistic.
Celerity, please ping me on your report afterward!
Only problem I can see with that is, it might be a little more difficult than just getting a ride back home...NOT that I'm saying there would be any violence directed toward any "on-site opposition", of course.../ S
Very funny story, but the thought that these "protesters du jour" are gaining such ground in their old age is enough to make one cry, for sure..."occupy Syracuse" is funny, but the POTUS election result consequences from 2012 certainly are not...
Methinks we need some kind of a plan here?!
They quote someone who says it smells.
Awesome post, great insights, and most heartening to read!
Even if it's "one step at a time", I am sure these ideas and tactics would also work in Ohio, and etc. etc...THANKS! and good luck!
I fully agree with your sentiment but I would compare what's going on in NYS as more of a Bunker Hill type battle. It's a Progressive victory that is costing them a lot and in the end won't win them the war.
Your post is the situation exactly. I KNOW that Freep gets scouted by the government. This is a fact. There are users setup here to listen to the chatter, just as there is on DU.
That’s something that people do in wartime. We are at war. There are no shots fired, but there is still a fair share of military actions taking place on US Soil that the line is being blurred.
I only rest knowing that the mods here at FR are on our side, and won’t be sending any emails that read “THERE HE IS ! UNDER THE TREE READING A BOOK ! GET HIM!”. Are there others on here that would do that ? Sure.
The key here is that the system of “Most wanted” is already tapped out. There are literally so many 100s of 1000s of people on this list, that we’re far at the bottom. In fact, I know that a few letter agencies have a “top 1000” list of people they are looking for - that will never be found.
The system of our opposition is already taxed. Like Gun registration - If you believe that the ATF gets rid of files, you’re not very smart. The ATF DOES keep records that live on forever. They have reports and data that is constantly referred to. The only problem is that data is such garbage that no executive decision can be made based on it. It’s level of confidence is like 10%. The idea of a new gun registration program is to increase the confidence of their data to try and save some of the data they already have.
And that’s why it’s important to crash their every effort. They are now trying to enhance their ATF data with medical record (EMS) of people who own guns, so they can cross-reference the data and gauge their error rates. Destroy that system now while you can.
I say we all buy ammo, personally, and just sell it between us so we avoid having to present ID at the counter for future purchases.. Just as a precaution. I am only to buy ammo in small amounts, but welcome the private sale of anything I can to keep not just the patriot off the radar, but to make this data so completely incorrect that using it will be an exercise in futility.
I would REALLY like to afford to stop in to NYS gun stores to buy ammo now. Even with ID. So at least I mess up the records and charts so badly that no one can do anything with them.
Use Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals AGAINST the Socialist-DemoRATS. Learn how to strategise like the left does and use it AGAINST THEM!
As Alinsky said, “insight your enemy to anger and THEN USE that anger as a weapon AGAINST THEM.
As you have said, concerned about politics, “wait and watch. The left will be the ones who start something. They're overly emotional and have no foresight. We can use their anger against them instead. The democrats/socialists/communists have run out of other peoples money. The dependent left isn't going to be happy when their politicians can no longer steal for them. So, wait and let THEM be the “insane crazies that need to be controlled.”
You've summed it up perfectly. Let's take heed and use this tactic on the left....we must ALL be in this together and do it as a whole.
I don't know. That's why I'm asking for suggestions, ideas on what we could do.
Definitely, we have to get involved with other like-minded people and share ideas and plans with them privately, face to face, and www.oathkeepers.org provides this opportunity based on how their operation is set up that makes this possible. Check them out.
Other than the above mentioned idea, does anyone have any ideas how we can communicate privately with each other about plans and ideas?
” It will reduce gun violence in our state.”
Of course. Gun control laws have such a great track record./sarc
Very very good. I particularly like anything that uses humor to make them look like the fools they are. The use of humor requires a higher order of thinking and intelligence that is beyond the capability of most of these mindless goons. They know that and they hate it.
Legal? Sure. But it’s illuminating that he’s involving himself so directly in what’s supposed to be local state legislation, between Gov. Cuomo Jr. and his subject—I mean citizens.
I just signed up for their bus ride using this untraceable e-mail account and phone #s and zipcode for Syracuse NY I found with a search engine.
