New York’s ‘Safe Act’ continues to cause controversy

Paul Joseph Watson

New York’s Safe Act will mandate that all gun owners “surrender” magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds to law enforcement officials, according to a fact sheet released to accompany the new law.

Law Would Force Gun Owners to “Surrender” Magazines to Police

A 4 page fact sheet released yesterday on the website states, “If you own a large capacity magazine greater than 10 round capacity that was a grandfathered magazine as a result of the 1994 Federal Assault Weapon Ban, within a year, you must do one of the following: dispose of it to another person outside New York State, surrender it to law enforcement officials, or permanently alter such to only accept 7 rounds.” (emphasis added)

The warning will only increase fears that a widespread gun and ammunition confiscation program could be in the works. As we highlighted last week, back in December, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo admitted that “confiscation could be an option,” when it came to enforcing the new law. However, provisions in the original bill that included confiscation were removed in order to prevent the legislation from being voted down.

Sheriffs across the country have put the Obama administration on notice that they will not carry out gun or ammunition confiscation programs if similar laws are passed locally or nationally. However, not a single Sheriff from New York or other cities with stringent gun control have joined the chorus.

Last week, Gloversville Mayor Dayton King warned that laws like the Safe Act could lead to a “Waco-style standoff” in rural areas of America.

“Most people are law-abiding citizens and may go ahead and sell those or turn those over, but you’re going to have a fraction of people that are going to take a stand, and I can just predict a Waco-style standoff in some rural area and it’s not going to end well,” Mayor King told Fox 23 News.

As Martin Hill points out, people in New York will also “be required to give their social security number and other personal data,” as part of the new law if they own a pistol.

“Every 5 years you will need to verify the following information on your pistol permit to the New York State Police: name, DOB, gender, race, residential address, social security number, the firearms possessed, and if you want, your e-mail address. The purpose of the recertification is to update information,” states the document.

Thousands of protesters gathered at the Capitol building in Albany, New York on Saturday to protest the Safe Act, which passed New York’s Assembly on a 104 to 43 vote.

“This legislation, as it stands currently, would not have stopped the violent attacks in Newtown, Connecticut or Webster, New York,” said Assemblyman Christopher S. Friend, who voted against the legislation. “This bill will, however, punish law-abiding citizens who value their Second Amendment rights, while doing little to address the real problem.”

    Realistically there is no way the local government could ever enforce this legislation.
    When is government too much government and when does authority ever replace morality?
    The Zionistas have taken over New York and Bloomberg has sold the city to the Elite. people are enslaved and do not realize just how far.
    Violent crime will increase as it always has in gun controlled populations.

    And by the way, referencing my comment just below, I voted with my wallet 15 years ago. Moved my consulting business from CA to AZ. That act of moving denied CA about $200K of income taxes over that time period. It’s only a drop in the bucket at the State Budget Level, but when enough people do this, it has an impact. And if you want to see how this is done. Just get on Amtrak east of LA and ride to the West, then take the Northern route to Santa Barbara. You can see massive quantities of mid sized business buildings that are vacant and many of those have been stripped of copper and are likely to never get used again. Isn’t this what is happening now? Bad laws and excessive control freaks driving people and business out of their States and Cities, leaving behind more poverty and fewer higher paying jobs? Those businesses moved to other states that honor your right under the constitution.

    It would not surprise me if small / mid sized companies move out of NY for states that honor their constitutional 2nd amendment rights. The best way citizens can deal with tyranny is to vote at elections. And when there are too many control freaks in your district, then follow that up with the most powerful vote of all and that is with your wallet, take your business with you, and move to a more reasonable state. In the limit, only slaves would stay behind and the cities would become bankrupted for lack of revenue. Isn’t that what is happening now?

    So not only is NY State violating the 2nd amendment they are taking private property without due process or just compensation that was legally purchased?Somehow or another I don’t think that is going to work out to well for the State.
