The Resistance Begins: New York Gun Owners Refuse to Register; “Largest Act of Civil Disobedience in State History”

Mac Slavo
January 25th, 2013

With emotions running high in the aftermath of the Newtown Sandy Hook shooting, politicians on the State and Federal level have begun introducing legislative actions to curtail access to firearms protected by the Second Amendment. In Missouri, parents may soon be forced to register firearms with their child’s school under threat of criminal penalties. In Massachusetts, another proposal would require storage of semi-automatic rifles at government approved storage depots. And, in the State of New York, congressional representatives have already passed legislation that requires registration of every semi-automatic rifle and reduces maximum magazine capacity to 7 rounds of ammunition, and Governor Cuomo has floated the idea of gun confiscation.

Now, in what is sure to be a growing trend across the entire country, New York gun owners are organizing a resistance against what many believe to be the most, “brazen infringement on the right to keep and bear arms anywhere in the nation,” according to The New American:

Preparations are already being made for mass resistance.

“I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes,’’ said President Brian Olesen with American Shooters Supply, among the biggest gun dealers in the state, in an interview with the New York Post.

Gun Control Big Diversion

This is a national EMERGENCY ----

While faking gun control what the federal government is quitely doing in secret is buying up all the most popular & effective firearms (pistols & "assault rifles") & ammunition. So in fact what they are planning to do is FORCEFULLY CONFISCATE ALL GUNS. Please e-mail all gun & ammo manufacturers & tell them to closely check out who is actually purchasing all the guns & ammo. And don't sell to DHS & US government.


New York lawmakers are either

New York lawmakers are either acting in an hystrical reaction or by political design by introducing irrational laws forbidding American citizens to access and own defense weaponry. They are successfully turning their legal responsible citizens into criminals by decree. There are already laws on the books to punish criminal activity. New York's agenda seems to be to waging war against its own citizens. These lawmakers are NOT representing the people... They seem more interested in protecting the criminals.

If laws are unconstituitonal....

citizens should have the right to disobey them. And this would be one of those examples.

"You better not compromise yourself. It's all you got."


I am endorsing a newly established political Party called "Free Dominion" which argues for dignifying the prerogative of individual choice concerning public domain, and the right to withdraw from institutional abuse (including all taxation).

Do NOT Comply

The last thing we need to do especially right now, is disarm. - My site on getting my little family prepped for whatever might come our way. - My site on growing marijuana

Hire your police as necessary; no more so.

Hire the police you need. Hire the kind you need. Hire the time you need. Hire the number you need.

Ride with them, by & by. Verify you are getting what you pay for. You will learn most police are trained & equipped for events well beyond why you hired them.

Train them well into the service for which you hired. Contribute to their training. Watch them train. Welcome new recruits. Regularly introduce yourselves at training exercises. Make sure the training they receive meets your requirements. You are paying for their service. Get what you pay for.

If necessary, ask foreigners that meddle with your city police training to return to their own turf.

they will come with guns to take your guns

My biggest worry is that President Obama decides to "help" law enforcement in NY by sending in the National Guard. That there will be bloodshed over this.


Do you know any National Guard?

Because the ones I know would not comply.

"If they mean to have war-

Let's Move Forward

This is an important video called Project Sandy Hooked Explained.
Yes, they want gun confiscation--every tyrant needs to disarm the populace, but more specifically, what they want is confrontation. They want us to resist and revolt and they want us to make it bloody. So can we at least try without Civil War, without the blood??

One major solution has arrived and it was quick (very). What we need to do is to take it a step further immediately. Emergency State legislation protecting our 2nd Amendment has already been passed in many states, specifically stating we will not comply. We can protect our whole constitution this way. The key is to pass STATE legislation to REMOVE any STATE Senator presenting unconstitutional laws, bills to the house floor etc. There will be no voting on that bill and that state representative is NOTIFIED--FIRED--SACKED--REMOVED--UNEMPLOYED and charges filed as necessary. Until we do that we are not holding The Congress accountable for destroying our constitution. In fact protecting the constitution should be their NO.1 purpose, it's their job.
When you get fired from any company, you clean out your office, desk, gather personal belongings and leave, no more paychecks. What happens after that in court etc. might be months down the road. It is obvious that we can't go on anymore signing petitions, phoning congress, asking for consideration, etc, on matters not up for debate. It just doesn't work. We are the fouth branch of the government--The People. Let's do our job.
How else are we going to say that our Amendments and Bill of Rights are not belonging to the congress or the president?--if you don't like them, leave the US. These are OURS and should be secured by us by not complying, and never allowing changes made by traders. The traders must be removed.

The biggest problem to consider then is a replacement and method of replacement to a sacked senator. What happens when someone dies?? or becomes ill? or quits like that guy elected in Nov. who decided that a $400,000 income is better than his skimpy $170,000 government paycheck. They seem to replace people without an election.

Oh crap!!!!

haven't these idiots at "the top" learned that prohibition NEVER works! Sheesh!

Twarn''t sever like twas the July, 1863 military draft riots!

NY City Severed: How the Draft Riots Tore New Your City Apart, July, 1863. 3 minute dramatization.

July 1863. As the Civil War dragged into its third year, the Lincoln Administration was faced with a severe problem. Casualties were mounting, and it became clear that the government needed more troops. A draft was instituted. Congress passed a law implementing a draft in the spring of 1863. It was the first conscription act in the United States, and it was not popular... All men from 20 to 45 years of age to register.

Nowhere was the act more resented than in the poor neighborhoods of the nation's cities. In New York City, the Irish communities were increasingly resentful over the fact that many Irish had already enlisted, and had been wounded or killed in the war... Adding to the resentment was a provision in the conscription act where someone could pay $300 to avoid being drafted. That obviously favored the rich, who could afford the fee. Names were to be drawn [from a large metal drum rigged as a tumbler.. Filled with names of us poor folk to be sentenced to war.]

In this vintage engraving, the office of a Provost Marshal, an Army official who would implement the draft, has been set afire. Reaction to a newly instituted draft turned violent in the streets of New York City.

Not in history books

Wonder why this important info wasn't in our history books! [not really]
Thanks for the education!


Yeah, if this for real I

Yeah, if this for real I think we just drew the line in the sand. The most interesting part will be if the police or DHS listen to their conscience.

Police? Maybe....We haven't encountered a completely..

conscience-less police officer yet. (Though some may have, I don't presume to speculate on other's experiences) Though they may be fewer, I'm sure there are DHS workers with a conscience that is not seared yet, as well.

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15


...if there are sufficient men of principle who will resist this tyranny, by any means necessary, it will become the spark that awakens the remainder of the states and the people to the necessity of real action, rather than political, electoral, judicial and other machinations in the drive to reign in tyranny.


Let us watch. Let us stand resolute, prepared to assist our brothers if government begins to kill and imprison the people in its quest for stripping away Liberty's Teeth.


It is sick that they call the lawlessness of the government in grabbing guns illegally a law.

i was so worried....

That everyone would just lie down and take this. This gives me some hooe.


HOLD THE LINE AND STAND YOUR GROUND. The line in the sand has been drawn and theyve crossed it. Better to die on your feet then live on your knees like a filthy slave.



Stand your ground

New Yorkers!

btw that is an awesome flag on the site

They Stood Their Ground electing Andrew Cuomo....and company. There's also no civil disobedience yet. They have a full year to comply. So they will bluster and whine for the next 12 months before finally submitting like the docile sheep they really are. (Just a hunch - since I'm from NY).

And you are responsible for the death of children

Cause you elected Obama

I hope you see just how stupid your statement is.....

I'm also from NY

yet your commentary dishonors those who exercise virtual conscience in a time of duty: take your
cynical poison home if you've nothing to contribute and lick the boots of your own cowardice

ecorob's picture

Hey guys...

I think ya'll are on the same side!

Let's find some way to stick together, ok?

We don't need to be doing the socialist's job for them.

I think the first, cynical guy has a right to be pissed (we all are) and he is being more than a little cautious but I believe that in these times of dire straights we will ALL come together for the common good.

The man wasn't dishonoring those that will "hold the line". I think he was just calling out those that, in the past, stood too long in the middle.

Maybe we have all, me included, been a little guilty of that.

I trusted the politicians with everything and look where that got me!

I'm "sucking" right now. My little town in
Tennessee has about 3000 people in it and today I noticed they have 5 BRAND NEW SUV cop cars and 1 unmarked vehicle! You do the math. Thats 1 patrol car for every 500 citizens and 98% of us are old and, not to mention, law abiding! The other 2% are speeders. The police are revenue collectors, plain and simple. The last murder in this town....hmmmmmm I think, never! NEVER a murder, very damned FEW robberies (one every 3-5 years, maybe). And, yet, this much police?

This is NOT counting the County police that overlaps them!
AND the STATE PATROL that overlaps them. Its a long road back to FREEDOM! We'll have to get there together. We don't need to be fighting one another.

I hope I haven't made anybody mad. I'm just stating the obvious.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

He is a big boy and can defend his own statement

No need to tell us what you think he means....

What he is doing is projecting his own cowardice onto the rest of NY gun owners. The comments made reflect only the thoughts and most likely future actions of the OP.

Ask your police for a ride. Enjoy it. Do your community service.

You will learn their needs to do what you hired them to do. Ask any unnecessary trainers from outside your city jurisdiction to go home.

Same here in Middle Tn .

New vehicles and looks like free steroids for all city police.Ever wonder why they never talk or test for steroids in police on the news. I guess roid rage isn't real. Lance Armstrong should have been a policeman on a bicycle

Money talks and dogs bark

Appreciated, ecorob

It's a tense time, indeed.

May higher principle win the day and each individual's divine spirit live free
