  • Goodbye New York, Hello South Carolina: Third Gun Company Leaves Over Cuomo’s SAFE Act

    When New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the SAFE Act in January—what he referred to as “common sense” gun-control legislation—the law not only turned many law-abiding citizens into criminals, it also drove businesses and jobs out of the state. With a move to South Carolina, American Tactical Imports has become the third firearm company to relocate its operations from New York to more gun-friendly states. According to Guns.com: ATI is largely an importer and distributor of domestic firearms, although they do some manufacturing. They plan to move from Rochester to Summerville, a city on the outskirts of Charleston, starting next...
  • NY Democrat Allegedly Falsified $67,000 In Travel Expenses

    02/05/2013 4:03:53 PM PST · by rustyweiss74 · 9 replies
    New York State Assemblyman William F. Boyland, Jr., already under federal indictment for bribery, now stands accused of falsifying more than $67,000 in travel expenses over a five year period. According to the Times Union, Boyland filed false claims on 609 out of the 975 days that he requested travel reimbursements during that time span. The State Comptroller’s Office has declined to make the report public, and Albany County District Attorney David Soares, a Democrat, has still failed to take action against Boyland, despite specific requests from colleagues in the Assembly. Via the New York Post: Embattled state Assemblyman William...
  • "One Gun With One Bullett": More Evidence that NY Democrats Are Coming For the Second Amendment

    01/21/2013 9:20:07 AM PST · by rustyweiss74 · 19 replies
    Last week we showed you a Democrat wish list for gun control proposals, as presented by Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin. The list was given to McLaughlin by a colleague in the Senate, and includes a host of radical Second Amendment-trampling ideas, including the confiscation of so-called 'assault weapons', the re-labeling of semi-automatic shotguns as 'assault weapons', and the confiscation of magazines hosting 5 rounds or more. More video clips from the debates leading up to the Governor's over-reaching gun grab are surfacing, and there is clear evidence supporting the list presented by Mr. McLaughlin as reality. Democrat proposals are so radical...
  • Petition Urging Repeal of New York's Gun Law Gets 40,000 Signatures In One Day

    Yesterday we reported on only two Republican state Senators here in New York having the courage to stand up against Governor Cuomo's political gun grab legislation. One of those Senators, Kathy Marchione, had started a petition on her website in an attempt to demonstrate "strong public support for preserving our Constitutional freedoms". The support is indeed strong, with reports indicating that signatures are being placed on the petition at a clip of over 1,300 per hour. Since yesterday, the petition - found here - has received over 40,000 signatures in total. Marchione posted this on Facebook earlier this afternoon: "40,402....
  • Can the Governor of New York and 2016 Presidential Hopeful Actually Be this Thick?

    01/15/2013 7:13:03 PM PST · by rustyweiss74 · 15 replies
    In reading up on Governor Cuomo's new gun legislation in New York, I came across a rather startling statement. Startling in it's pure and utter stupidity. And in what Cuomo termed "the Webster Provision" — a reference to the Dec. 24 killings of two firefighters fatally shot while responding to a call in a suburb of Rochester — the murder of a first responder will become a felony punishable by life in prison without parole. That's right, a future Presidential hopeful for 2016 is actually bragging about a provision in his gun law named specifically for one individual gun man,...

    A nationwide appeal has been sent to gun owners and their families asking they go to their state capitol this Saturday, January 19, from noon to 3 p. m. to show support for our 2nd Amendment rights. In Florida, gun owners are asked to meet in the “middle of the state” at noon, at the Hernando County Fairgrounds, 6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL 334601. (1) This urgent call to action is in response to the Barack Obama/Joe Biden/Diane Feinstein legislative aim of imposing bans on arbitrarily selected groups of firearms and accessories. One North Carolina police lieutenant warns internet audiences,...
