    Nothing would secure leftist votes better than a series of raids on homes, seizing 'illegal assault weapons' from 'dangerous criminals'...

    Has every one here just given up? Do you really think it is inevitable? Wow! I am ashamed.

    From experience- because they do this every few weekends right out front of my house on the busy state route- what they would do is each officer would pull over one or more of the drivers as they felt comfortable.

    Out here they have 5-6 cars waiting on the shoulder, a plane in the air (who is also usually running stopwatches on the traffic a mile back from the speed trap, and radioing in which cars in which lanes to check speed with the laser) and one or two motorcycle cops who have laser guns standing on the shoulder. In Ohio the officer needs to make an eduma-cated idea that a car is speeding in order to be able to check speed with the laser- you can't just sit there and flash every car as it goes by...well, in theory anyway.

    The motorcycle cop checks speeds with the laser gun, then walks out into traffic and physically points to the car he wants to pull over and gestures for them to do so. When they do, one of the units in a car rolls up to write the citation. If they fail to stop, one of the cars chases them, backed up by the air unit.

    If all the units are writing cites, they make the speeders pull over and wait their turn. Some days there are quite a line of people waiting for their chance to pay the state a speed fee.

    If no officers are available, they ignore the speeders until one of the officers has a chance to deal with them again. Usually some of the ticketing cars have gotten too far away, and they have to pull a U-turn across the median and backtrack to where the action is.

    Assembly line shakedowns.

    Just remember the Waco incident started out because they were suspected of having illegal weapons and were serving a search warrant.

    Exactly how many times have you been at the range and somebody walked up and asked to see your gun's registration? For that matter, how many times have you been carrying a gun and had someone come up and ask to see your permit?

    Not apples to apples... Ask it this way... "How many times have you been at ther range with a Full Auto (Or other NFA device) and been asked to show your paperwork?

    Big difference. until right now in NY there was no registry and there were no banned (Just restricted) devices. In NY though today, I could see club/range owners asking the question to cover their own butts. New work down there in New York.

    So if they claim 40% of gun sales are done without a background check, and those sales do not currently require any form of documentation to change hands, how do you suppose they're going to find 150ish million firearms. They can't take you down for something that was legal at the time you did it. "Sorry officer I sold my firearms when I saw this legislation coming.". No sorry I didn't keep a paper trail because law didn't require it at the time of sale. Do you have a warrant to enter my home? No? Guess you'd better be on your way then.". The logisitcs for trying to find firearms that way are impossible. They've passed laws they can't enforce.

    Okay, I'll bite, JohnSka what is the logical "line-in-the-sand" moment? I'm being dense today.

    Not correct. They are required to keep it for 20 years, but can destroy it then. If they go out of business, yes, they must turn the records over to the ATF.

    Apples to orchards... the number of full auto guns is a drop in the bucket compared to the ocean of semi-auto guns.

    Right, but my point is the same. No one would ask this today because there is no registration except for NFA regulated items.

    But, were on the same side. I have a rising tode of my own.

    Have a good one.

    Hopefully you said that in jest. It could lead to charges for filing a false report. In some jurisdictions the penalty is equivalent to the penalty of the reported crime.

    But perhaps not capable of reasoning out that making statements on the Internet have no expectation of privacy? And if the gov't is competent enough to hunt you down for owning the gun, they'd be competent enough to read your post and figure out who you are?

    If you're going to break a law, whether or not that law is actually constitutional, you might wanna thing twice about announcing your intention to do so on the Internet where anybody can read it.

    Spot on. This is exactly correct. They'll whittle away at the illegal firearms, there will be no "show of force", because they know exactly what the response will be.

    there will be no war

    90% will comply
    9% will passivly not comply and hide / burry them (essentialy a misson kill)
    1% will loudly make noise and be scooped up at which point 90% of the 9% will comply


    BUT if the Do Not Comply really takes hold ... THAT will make for interesting times

    A few hundred thousand New York gun owners marching with their AR's on Albany would end this in a day. Each one drops a bullet on the governers lawn. There's a "political statement".

    Let them try to stop it...

    Our ancestors had the sand. Why dont we?

    When yoy buy a gun from an ffl the info on rhe 4473 gets transferred to the ffls bound book with the serial number and description of the gun. So yes it may not be overt registration but atf can examine or copy bound books and when an ffl goes under the bound book gets sent to atf.
    Any gun bought at an ffl is registered and traceable.

    So a self-professed "Gun Wielding Maniac" wants to drop bullets on the governors lawn? Helpful, very helpful. Constructive too. We're a a lock to win hands down now that we've got this idea on the table...from "Gun Wielding Maniac"! I can see the panic buying and the ammo hoarding dying down already.

    Let's be honest...right now you just about cannot buy a gun at retail in NYS. Retailers are sold out. Does Cuomo really think that people are buying up everything that goes "bang," and the things it takes to make them go "bang," just to turn them all in?

    Fifty-two of the 58 NYS county sheriffs have voiced formal opposition to the law...they probably will not enforce it.

    Finally, let's suppose the police decide to make a "contact" with every person they think may have a banned gun. This is just to drive out to your house, knock on your door, and give you a friendly reminder that you have until February 15th, 2014 to register your guns. Let's break that cost down:

    Man-hours to compile a contact list.
    Assume 5 minutes per contact. Driving time and gas money for two officers to contact maybe 10 households per hour.

    It would work out to $300 per contact. I got this figure from a retired police officer. Let's assume 300,000 people own affected guns. That's 90 MILLION dollars.

    There isn't that much money in this state to waste on that. And there will be even less without people buying guns, hunting licences, etc. Remington, Kimber, CZ/Dan Wesson, and Henry all have intentions of leaving NYS.

    This gun control law is an economic non-starter. It will just go away in a year or two when they realize it will bankrupt the state.

    This is my greatest fear. So if I register a half dozen or so "assault weapons", how exactly do you think LE will act if they need to contact me for any legitimate reason? When SWAT teams are doing 3am no-knock entries to collect people under warrant for non-violent offenses, what treatment will my family get? Should my children have to cower in their home with the corpse of their mother with half of her head missing as Vicki Weaver's children did?

    There will be fire and blood as a result of these laws, but it will be the innocents suffering the most. A registration and a bad word regarding your character will set the stage for the next Ruby Ridge, Waco or MOVE scenario, right here close to home for all of us in NY.

    Gun registration is not a big deal! It worked out just fine for all those nice Jewish people in the 1940s. Oh wait...

    Well... At least afterwards they were given a place to live in peace where nobody will bother them again.

    What? You don't say....

    Yeah. Why not? It clearly demonstrates:
    A) Solidarity
    B) Non-violent civil disobediance
    C) Guts

    It beats the pants off of "hiding in the closet" until you get old and die or your estranged Ex-Wife turns you into the Po-Po. There are 80 million + gun owners in this country. That's one POWERFUL minority, if only we'd feel our roots. Too many pussy-whipped people though are scared to do what our ancestors once did, in the civil rights movement, and before that, the revolution. They risked arrest...and a hell of a lot worse.

    As far as my name goes, I'm about the safest, sanest guy you'll ever meet.

    Well, isn't that what they did in Australia? There were a lot of people killed during that time. Otherwise law-abiding citizens immediately deemed criminals and treated as such.
