New York Democrats, despite the Governor stating explicitly that gun “confiscation could be an option” in his state, tried desperately to say that such an idea was simply right-wing paranoia.
Then in January, when debate on the SAFE Act began (After it was passed in the middle of the night), Democrats were caught with a wish list of items they wanted included in the gun legislation. Items that included “Confiscation of ‘assault weapons'” and “Confiscation of ten round clips.”
Now it looks like the gun-confiscating Democrats in New York City are getting their wish…
Via Truth About Guns:
New York’s SAFE Act is a bad, bad thing. It requires people to register, sell or transfer (out of state) “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines. Many Empire State gun and standard capacity ammunition magazine owners have complied. Many have not. So, at some point, the State’s gonna go get ‘em. People on both sides of the law enforcement divide will die and the s will hit the fan. Meanwhile, there it is: the reason why expanded background checks, indeed all background checks and any type of registration, set the stage for confiscation. And tyranny. [ED: This notice was sent for New York City residents, based on New York City laws, not necessarily SAFE Act provisions.]
Here is a copy of one such letter:

Anti-2nd amendment Bloomberg taking one last stab at the constitutional liberties of the people before leaving office. NOTE that the notice does NOT mention an option in which the officials will be coming to their door with warrants to search. Maybe that’s because they know they can’t survive legal challenges to support confiscation and will have difficulty obtaining warrants to do so. Thus the notice seems to rely on cooperation and compliance of the people to willingly turn in the guns and to fill out bureaucratic paper work.
Tyranny only has power over the people if we grant them that power. Our G-d given rights are guaranteed by the constitution and these right’s are given by G-d—not man. Hopefully, all Americans will remember this truth.
Governor Cuomo would like you to believe that only right-wing ‘extremists’ think that they are coming for your guns. But it’s actually the Second Amendment-trampling Democrat extremists who really do want to take them that are the problem.
