    Gun Free Zone for thee, but not for me

    Gun Free Zone for thee, but not for me

    From James O’Keefe (via Charlie Spiering):

    Veritas video reporter James O’Keefe has released a new video of his team posing as an anti-gun group promoting an initiative to journalists.

    At each home, the group dubbed as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence” asks each homeowner if they are willing to put up a “Gun Free” sign in their yard.

    O’Keefe primarily focuses his efforts on employees of the Journal-News – the New York newspaper that published a controversial map of registered gun owners online.

    Armed security welcomes the Veritas team at some of the homes, hired by some of the newspaper’s employees to protect them after bloggers retaliated by posting their names and addresses online.

    O’Keefe also approaches other journalists at their homes such as columnists from the New Jersey Star-Leger and even Toure from MSNBC.

    The team even tries the home of US Attorney Eric Holder – and are quickly met by a police officer.

    In other news, NY is about to pass the most highly restrictive gun law in the country, Bill called ‘toughest gun control package in the nation’ passed by New York  Senate:

    Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two “military  rifle” features spelled out in the law. The proposal would reduce that to one  feature and include the popular pistol grip.

    Private sales of assault weapons to someone other than an immediate family  would be subject to a background check through a dealer. Also Internet sales of  assault weapons would be banned, and failing to safely store a weapon could be  subject to a misdemeanor charge.

    Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current  10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell  them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a  magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.

    In another provision, a therapist who believes a mental health patient made a  credible threat to use a gun illegally would be required to report the incident  to a mental health director who would have to report serious threats to the  state Department of Criminal Justice Services. A patient’s gun could be taken  from him or her.

    Prediction — the real criminals will not care. No lives will be saved. Otherwise law-abiding citizens will become criminals by definition of law.

    We can always visit Mexico to repurchase the guns redistributed by our federal government.

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Help, please. I just bought my first 10/22 rifle, a Ruger based on the model used by the Olympic Shooting Team. Magazine is 10 rounds.

    Does this friggin law mean:

    1 – I have to sell the rifle out of state within the year or decide to just eat the cost and put it in mothballs or:

    2 – I can use it as long as I put only 7 bullets in the mag?

    For real, help!

    ARGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want out of NYS.

    FTR, I read one reason Crapo rammed the bill through – without anyone having a chance to read it (sound familiar) was to beat his prospective 2016 dim POTUS rival, Biden, to the punch. I would not doubt it.

    Some feedback in no particular order.

    Ball balks at bill.

    A New York State Senator has lambasted the passing of what is being called the nation’s toughest gun control bill, saying that it was introduced during the middle of the night, and that members were forced to vote on the legislation when they had not even had a chance to read it.

    “I simply cannot support a bill that turns law abiding citizens into criminals by creating an entire new category of illegal firearms out of currently legal rifles and shotguns,” said Senator Greg Ball in a statement. “…the last minute push, in the middle of the night without critical
    public input from sportsmen and taxpayers was outrageous and forced members to vote on a bill they had not read.” Ball noted.

    *****************************************************
    The NY SAFE Act would adjust the definition of a banned
    assault rifle so that any single characteristic — such as a telescoping stock,flash suppressor, bayonet attachment or pistol grip — on a semiautomatic rifle
    would render it illegal.
    **************************************************

    The maximum capacity of an ammunition magazine would be
    reduced from 10 rounds to seven, and a current exemption for clips manufactured before 1994 will end.

    *************************************************
    Crapo has taken his cue from the pos. Remember the O-care “We have to pass it so you can learn what’s in it” bill?
    *******************************

    Cuomo told reporters, without providing specifics, that the
    reason the legislation was being pushed through quickly was to avoid a potential run on sales of such weapons.
    The traditional three-day waiting period for a bill’s
    adoption is being waived by the Democrat-controlled Assembly, again citing a need to rush the bill through to avoid a rush on gun purchases. The Assembly is expected to approve the bill today without hesitation, paving the way for
    similar gun control measures on a national scale.
    ***************************************************

    Senator John J. Bonacic, who also opposed the legislation, called it “nothing more than window dressing designed to make people feel secure until the next tragedy strikes – all while criminalizing the actions of otherwise law abiding citizens.”
    In prepared comments,Bonacic noted ” In reading the summary of the legislation provided (my comments below are based on how the legislation has been explained,
    because the print of the bill has not been shown to Legislators as I write this – 8 PM on January 14), it appears law abiding citizens would become criminals – eligible to be sent to jail, simply by failing to tell the government they own guns they lawfully purchased.”

    “Equally problematic is the provision in the legislation prohibiting more than seven rounds in a ten round magazine – something irrelevant to a criminal.” Bonacic also stated.
    “Under the legislation, magazines people now own, which are capable of holding ten rounds (bullets) continue to be legal, but a person may only load seven rounds in them. It strains credibility to believe a criminal bent on a massacre is going to load only seven bullets in a ten round magazine. Law abiding citizens, on the other hand, who erroneously load too many bullets in a magazine, would be criminals
    under the legislation.” the Senator concluded.

    The bill was debated in closed door meetings, and if adopted by the New York State Assembly it will see enforced limits on magazines, mandatory license renewal for gun owners every five years, stiffer penalties for bringing guns on school property or using a gun to commit acrime and further restrictions on guns that have been termed “assault
    weapons”.

    “Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two ‘military rifle’ features spelled out in the law. The proposal would reduce that to one feature and include the popular pistol grip,” CBS reports.
    Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current 10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.
