    Over 127 and growing number of our Sheriffs declared/pledged Obama gun legislation will not be enforced - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=698885

    We have our rights to keep and bear arm under the Constitution which was supported by the US Supreme Court but our government wants to infringe on those rights.

    Civil disobedience has worked successfully for various causes around the world. Is it time for gun owners?

    This is the definition from Merriam-Webster - http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/civil disobedience

    What is it called when the administration announces it won't follow the law? I.e. they will not enforce immigration laws.. administrative disobedience?

    Lets just hope that people will stand up for there rights. After all they did put Obama back in and we knew what he is going to do. I swear I heard Obama say he would up hold and defend the Constitution of the United States when he was sworn in.

    In no way should New Yorkers comply with this absurd law.

    Our nation was founded and flourished under the rule of law. Many of the current crop of politicians and bureaucrats at all levels seek to replace the rule of law with the rule of public opinion.

    This is no new trend, it has just taken the threatening of our final safeguard of liberty, the Second Amendment, to awaken enough of us into taking action.

    No. The best way to undermine the efforts in NY and other anti-gun states is to leave and take your tax dollars and other contributions with you. Guys like Cuomo are essentially organized crime racketeers. They don't care if the have to put you in a hole. They WANT to. But these states have something else in common beside anti-gun laws. They're all hurting BADLY in the pocket book. NY is no exception. If enough income earners pull out and leave their house to the crackheads the states will continue to fall apart, lose representatives and wield less political power. That should be the goal. Bring money, talent and resources to the states that will appreciate these things. And get a lighter tax burden in the bargain. Win win.

    Just curious.... if the governor, attorney general, and CLEOs of a state larger than any country in western Europe were to order their subordinate jurisdictions not to comply, and encourage the citizens to quietly carry on with their lives... could you really call the average man's actions 'civil disobedience'?

    I didn't agree with the last AWB. But it didn't matter! The Gun manufacturers & Ammunition Companys did, along with the gun importers! I had no say in those decisions & no one I know did eather! It still happened! We must get the support of a large group of people that have a lot to lose by supporting us! We can ignore them but we do it at a great danger to our liberty! I hope more LEOs do support us but there's a lot that don't! I saw quite a few LEOs behind the senators on C-Span, while they were calling for the AWB! Let's hope we can win some hearts & minds. JMTs.

    The state will respond as they do against all civil disobedience: with crushing violence.

    I have repeatedly posted that gun owners are our worse enemy.

    The Government has given us the most powerful weapon in the world...the privilege to vote. Yet most gun owners fail to use it and now whine about the gun control laws being passed.

    Civil disobedience worked in India but it took many years, surviving severe government crackdowns, required massive support from the population and the cost of many thousands of lives and a powerful leader. And remember Indians did not enjoy the right to vote.

    If you personally are willing to endure imprisonment, loss of all of personal property and assets, separation from your family and friends and possible death along with all of your followers experience the same events and have the ability to persuade others to do the same I suggest you change your name to Gandhi.

    I'm relieved to see a growing segment of those who would be expected to enforce these laws at the point of LEO interacting with "violators" are taking this stand. Hats off, gents.

    Then what's it called when this administration has deported illegal aliens at a higher rate than the last one?

    LEO's behind gov !

    Any and all LEO's that were standing behind gov cuomo were ORDERED to do so.

    I am in NYS and I have spoken to all officers I know and all retirees and they all say the gov. is full of hot air and they will NOT do as asked.

    Most feel that they are free men.
