Repeal NY Gun Law

Not all NY politicians are knee jerk idiots. NY State Senator Kathy Marchione has a petition to repeal Cuomo's bid to become President by out Obama-ing Obama:

SIGN KATHY’S PETITION TO REPEAL AND REPLACE RESTRICTIVE NEW GUN CONTROL MEASURES THAT WILL WEAKEN THE SECOND AMENDMENT CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF LAW-ABIDING NEW YORKERS

SENATOR KATHLEEN MARCHIONE
Protecting Our 2nd Amendment Rights

Help Senator Marchione Repeal and Replace Restrictive New Gun Control that Weakens the Second Amendment Constitutional Rights of Law-Abiding New Yorkers!

In a vote held in the state Legislature last night – Monday, January 14, 2013 – the Second Amendment Constitutional freedoms of New Yorkers were weakened with passage of restrictive new gun control. I strongly opposed this legislation that was rushed through both houses of our state Legislature without a single public hearing or the proper time to carefully review the bill.

Law-abiding citizens are NOT the issue! Millions of New Yorkers own firearms and do so safely, responsibly and legally. The real issue, the real threat, is dangerous criminals having guns and the seriously mentally ill obtaining access to guns.

Monday’s vote was only the beginning, not the end, of a critically important debate. I believe we must repeal and replace the restrictive parts of the enacted legislation. We should focus on increasing penalties for criminals who use firearms and addressing the issue of mental illness. However, I cannot do it alone: I need strong Second Amendment supporters like you to stand strong – and stand with me.

Please sign my Legislative Petition to build public support for repealing and replacing the restrictive gun control measures. If every New Yorker who supports the Second Amendment makes their voices heard we can forge a true public safety remedy that addresses real issues such as dangerous criminals and mental health without curtailing the Second Amendment.

This is no time to sit on the sidelines: every gun owner, hunter, sportsman and supporter of the Second Amendment must get involved. Now is the time to be heard! I will personally deliver these petitions to the Governor and Legislative Leaders.

It pisses me off how liberals treat law abiding citizens like they are the criminals. They are control freaks. They irk me so bad.

Teresa - liberals can not tolerate anything that conflicts with their worldview. As their view of how things are and how they ought to be are diametrically opposed to a Christian's, they will always go to the mat with it. While we dislike what liberals stand for, liberals simply hate us.

Odie - NY isn't just asleep at the wheel; many are while wholeheartedly behind the tax and spend Gov as long as they aren't the ones paying the taxes.

If your sig holds more than 7 rounds in the magazine--then you will have to be sure to only have seven in it. Or will you have to get rid of it?
The semi-auto hand gun manufacturers will not retool, so this just a sneaky way to ban future semi-auto hand gun sales in NY.
