    I'm part of the AR " in" crowd here in Central NY and this is definitely the consensus. I'm not sure my stand on it yet. I'll see what happens with the legal proceedings that are coming down the pike.

    What the hell did Cumo expect? Did he expect tens of thousands of gun owners to just roll over? Cumo is an idiot and an idiot with higher political aspirations than just Governor of NY. Somehow, this whole Sandy Hook thing is beginning to backfire.

    Personally I am sick and tired of hearing Sandy Hook ring over and over again as some justification to usurp my rights.

    I realize we don't have national registration, but I'll guess somehow, thru some loophole, the feds will give NCIS data to NY and they will know everybody who bought guns that they now ban and require to be registered.

    All I can say is that talk is cheap. I wouldn't put much stock in these brave words once the adverse consequences become clear. You can refuse to register, fine, but that gun can never be seen in public again.

    And another thing: those that talk are not the real ones who will be defying the law, and vice versa. In fact, loudly advertising one's intentions is a good way to put oneself on the radar, to be made an example of.

    I could just picture waves of gun owners filing police reports ...

    "Officer, after our range trip we stopped to have lunch/dinner and I must have forgotten to lock the car/truck door. When we came out, all the guns were gone!" ;):D

    If/when the Feds try to confiscate, they will simply show the police reports for stolen guns ... what will Cuomo/Obama do then?

    So, we should just roll over and comply with illegal laws? I think not.

    Most of us "will not comply" folks are capable of reading and comprehending the new law and have made a conscious decision not to obey.

    Just an observation. In Europe where the people have a long history of involvement with the "King's Men" they handle things a bit differently than we Ameicans.

    When confronted by the King's Men" riding into the village, we Americans tend to run out into the road and, raising our right arms high in the air, extend the middle digit ... and are then surprised when the "Kings Men" react negatively to this display of outright rebellion and disrespect.

    Europeans on the other hand, turn out of their houses, clap and cheer as the "King's Men" ride into their village ... much bowing and scraping (remember the scene in The Quiet Man, when the Anglican Bishop is riding out of town and everyone turns out to wave ... even the Catholics?) Then, after the "King's Men" ride around the bend in the road, they all raise their right arms and extend the middle digit and then go on with their lives as they see fit.

    What to do in New York? Perhaps, just perhaps the best course of action when it comes to civil disobedience, in the short run anyway, would be to adopt the European model. Just don't comply. No need to throw yourself on the pile of "dead martyrs" just yet. Remember, not everyone opposed to the Crown went "Indian" in Boston Harbor .

    I don't think the information in question is actually detailed enough for that. Plus it's possible that the people in question no longer have those weapons.

    I foresee enough boating accidents in the near future that New Yorkers may soon be able to walk part of the way across the lake to Canada on the hulls of sunken ships. :D

    Where laws are immoral, civil disobedience is a moral duty.

    After NYC passed their laws banning anything over 5 rds & assault rifles back years ago they did start sending some detectives door to door who bought ar's & the like,which is ok if they werent in posession in the city.Lots of people were keeping their guns at relatives houses in westchester & long island.not sure what became of it,but to go throughout the state & do it would be much harder...

    'Romeo 33 Delta' Your description of what Europeans have to do is exactly why our government was formed as a Constitutional Republic that includes the Bill of Rights.

    Here in the U.S., the people need to instill enough fear in the "King's Men" so that they wait until they are around the bend to extend their middle digit.

    Did these politicians really think that folks were going to roll over that easily? How many folks are going to give up what took some of them a lifetime to find and collect? Makes no sense to think that people would welcome this with open arms. Thay are in for a hailstorm of backlash.
    Cuomo just ruined any chances he had to run for anything when this is done.

    Civil Disobedience requires an audience.

    Please review your history.

    Mr. Rogers said "New York is a good test bed for OBAMA. Think they will go door to door and pick em up? They know who has them legaly."

    Best New Yorker magazine cover EVER...this is exactly their attitude about therest of us:

    If only a few people register their guns with the state, it'll be publicly known that only a few are registering. I think they have rough estimates of how many "evil semi autos" are in the state. If the registration appears very low, they'll know they have a problem. If they want to go door to door asking people (even if they had the 4473's), well, I suppose they could waste their time to find out that there were lots of boating accidents and private sales outside of the state.

    I say, do what your heart tells you to do. I am not advocating breaking the law, but people have a duty to stand against tyrannical governments. Our military fights such fights all the time. Why should it be different at home?

    You're not paranoid if they really are after you. :scrutiny:

    Let them come. Sooner or later it will get down to this. Might as well start in NY and California.
