Emailed my NY Sheriff today...Submitted by themightyrenegade on Tue, 01/15/2013 - 15:46
to see what he thinks about Cuomo's 'ideas/solution' to the nations latest problem. No, not ridiculous $pending, multiple wars on multiple fronts, american citizens rights being stripped, our dollar being brought to the equivalent of monopoly money, or the current state of our corrupt political system. The latest distraction of 'gun control'. So I sent this out....
I am writing this to inquire where the Sheriff stands on Cuomo's 'magazine ban' and "Magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds and manufactured before 1994, which are currently legal, would have to be turned over to authorities or sold out of state within one year. If a magazine has a capacity between eight and 10, it would have to be retrofitted to only hold seven rounds."-- Are you kidding me!? Who will enforce this? This article goes on to say that they're not trying to demonize gun owners. No, only penalize them, tax them, and deny a right ('the constitution doesn't say anything about Gov't granted rights, but more along the line of God given rights) The preservation of the Office of Sheriff is vital in our republic. Outside a few elected town marshals, the Sheriff is the only head of a law enforcement agency in this nation that is accountable directly to the people of his /her jurisdiction. As an Erie Co. resident who voted for Sheriff Howard and the oath that he's sworn to uphold, I just wanted to clarify any thoughts/opinions he may have with this 'gun control' matter. It seems more to me like an exploitation of a tragedy as an excuse to roll out 'Rights Control'.
I read somewhere on DP or twitter that people were contacting their sheriffs, so i gave it a shot, let ya know if i even get a response
