New York Senate Passes Gun Confiscation Bill: New Yorkers, You Now Have No Rights

liberty cryingIf you live in New York, Your State legislators have just declared open season on all law abiding gun owners.

In a late night session, New York Legislators passed the most draconian gun bill in the nation with a vote of 43 to 18.The bill, which expands the state’s ban on so-called “assault weapons”, has a number of even more troubling provisions that should scare the hell out of any freedom loving people.

The Bill, which was hurried through the State Senate last night, was signed into law late this afternoon.

The Bill sets up the following measures in New York:

  • An expanded ban on assault weapons that broadens the definition to include semiautomatic pistols and rifles with detachable magazines and one “military-style feature”.
  • It Forces gun owners to renew their licenses every five years.
  • Bans semiautomatic shotguns with one military-style feature.
  • Bans any gun magazine that can hold over 7 rounds of ammunition.
  • Requires anyone with these weapons to immediately register them with the state.

In my opinion, the scariest part of this bill is what they are calling the Mental Hygiene Law. The bill allows healthcare workers to essentially turn in anyone they think is a danger to society. This means health care workers will now be able to decide who keeps their guns, and who has to turn them in. Say one thing wrong, or one thing that might be a little politically incorrect, and depending on the healthcare worker you could be in for a world of trouble.

Once a healthcare worker reports an individual, New York laws enforcement agents will then be authorized to confiscate any firearm owned by the “dangerous patient”.  The bill also gives New York officials more power to commit these so-called “dangerous patients” into mental facilities.

    Its no surprise NEW YORK did this .its one of the most communist states we have .i lived there for a few years ,and went completely broke i moved back home to the south and am finally getting back on my feet and living comfortable.i hope the south doesnt follow the ignorant of NY.

      The South Will Never Get Rid Of its Guns and I am Proud to have been born and raised there granted I never owned a gun in my entire life unless you want to count the airsoft rifle and pistols I owned. I love guns and its not the fact that I’m black either. Its because Who is going to protect our families from the snakes and monkeys dressed in suits and lie and say “they want what we want.” when they decide to completely try to turn this place into a police state?

      It is time to overthrow the government, if your republican or democrat you are a part of the problem, it is time to do away with the obsolete and antiquated two party system. This country is under the law of the constitution, if your a state making laws that contradict that constitution your should lose your US status. This law is a direct and unlawful disregard of our second amendment, period.

          What happened to gun rights in the UK, is what typically happens when your country doesn’t have a written constitution. Something similar recently happened in Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela; a total ban on civilian firearms ownership.
          Long live the U.S. Constitution in general, and the Second Amendment in particular!

            I believe that what Kelly was trying to say was not that there should be more parties (we already have a half-dozen or so)but rather that there should be NO PARTIES. Let each man/woman stand on their own beliefs and vision. So very many just vote party-line, like sheep. Wake-up America, take back your right to speak, your right to vote. Vote on policy not on the party. There are good and bad in both parties today, the worst are the coat-tail politicians. Speak for your self, not for your party. We are one Americans, let us act that way! Vote for the politician who most closely share your views and values, regardless of party. Do you know how much is spent on Presidential campaigning? Enough to feed every hungry child in the world, and still have enough left over to greatly reduce the national debt, if not eliminate it completely.

        registering is not the problem, it is voting for them and not paying attention to how they vote.

        I would say that everyone should not only register with one of the two parties, but also become officers and elected officials within the parties.

        Take their power structure back.

        Simply watching and worse yet, believing the mainstream news is worse than carrying a card that says you are one of the two.

        I am a registered republican and I am part of a movement that is doing that very action.

        Do I vote for all GOP, heck no.

      It’s amazing that there are any people that even remember, let alone know where to find, these essential contributions to our country. Unfortunately they are no longer included in many curriculums around the country at the risk of proffering a free thinking student ammunition (pardon the pun) for taking back our country.

      scot- the quotes are nice to read, but the time is past for them to be of value.

      The good men and women of NY now need to decide if they will comply or refuse. Most of the guns are upstate, and there is a lot of land there. They may have been burying their guns for a month already, or maybe they’ll just all ‘decline’ to register anything.

      We’ll just have to see. At least we can be sure the folks downstate generally won’t take any action to stop those upstate – they are the source of this kind of law and they mostly don’t own any guns to take any action with. And if gun owners all decline to cooperate, the state can’t afford to fight that. Just that many prosecutions would bankrupt NY itself, and forget the cost of staffing the arrests, confiscations, incarcerations, or welfare for the families with the wage-earner in jail.

      If the gun owners just don’t comply, I believe the issue will die quickly. A few ‘example’ arrests to try to scare them, but it won’t last. Simple economics can kill this law even now.

They will be tracking people that visit these sites and going after them as soon as they can. We are already being called nuts for prepping and now doctors will be able to turn you in for it. We will all be subject to scrutiny by any medical professional out there. The next step will be all out confiscation of all weapons.

    Yes, the slide into dictatorship has begun. Obumma on hearing that gun control would be DOA in Congress, has announced that he will bypass Congress by passing it thru Executive Order. For those who wonder, the Executive Order was set up for routine admin actions in the Executive Department .. NOT to pass de facto legislation without the approval of Congress.

    That is unconstitutional plain and simple. Would it be a big surprise that if Obunga gets away with this that he may issue another one either doing away with two term limit or maybe just naming himself “poppa doc barrack” for life…

    by the way regarding the last post above (JAS) … the feds have already set up a new large monitoring section by the DHS to keep tabs on what goes on in the internet. Yes Big Brother is indeed watching and listening.

The black market is an easy way to obtain ANY weapon from a “Saturday Night Special” up to all military weapons, including Tanks. What good is banning assault weapons when you can buy them on the black market? Good grief, how stupid can they get…obviously, blatant ignorance comes into play here. Why are they NOT addressing the real issues of the Psychiatric medications which ARE the main problem with these mass violent acts????? Or, perhaps this is a way to confiscate everyone’s weapons…..

    This doesn’t make thing right. The governor said a couple of days ago that all new yorkers must sell there guns to out of state people. This wont keep guns out of criminal hands. Forcing people to sell there guns out of state will result in more bad guys to have access to guns without knowing there backgrounds. This is not gun control. The governor should stand trial for telling the people of New York to sell guns out of state. This is not the way to keep the guns out of the bad guys hands. Instead of drive by shootings, bad guy will walk down the streets shooting at people and through windows of peoples homes. There is nothing that the governor has said our done to protect our kids on schools.
