New York City CONFISCATING Rifles and Shotguns

New York City CONFISCATING Rifles and Shotguns

Patrick Howley, Reporter

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences.

New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners.

“It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are unlawful to possess in New York City, as per NYC Administrative Code 10-306 (b).”

“You have the following options,” the letter explains.

This is Why I'm a Libertarian

Stuff like this is a burden on the law-abiding, cooperative, and responsible citizen: people motivated by a desire to be "good." They are the ones punished by the burden of compliance and the loss of their guns and rights.

Meanwhile, people who don't have any such desire to be "good" are left unbothered.

And, people like me, who can't help but focus on the gap between what is and what should be, and who want to be "good" have the added burden of an intollerable situation that causes stress, because of the unfairness of it all. The option to move west is gone. All we can do is defend the first group, act the like the second group, and fight for change.

They want to claim to be perfect authority

Hold them to it! No more corruption, no more waste, no more inefficiency, no more false arrest, behavior should be friendly and professional to their employers, the citizens. They take the guns, they get held to the highest standard possible. If they cant meet it fire them all.

So help me out here. If they

So help me out here. If they take the guns, whose going to hold them to the highest standard possible exactly?

Better idea. New Yorkers defend their @#$%ing rights or else get what they deserve.

Registration = Confiscation Stage 1

.

Stage 2 = lots of dead New Yorkers at the hands of government.

All for their "own good" of course.

And certainly, everyone of them will be labeled an "enemy of the state."

Hide them all...

as it should have always been...

f them.

Okay

So when's the court date?

This will be struck down by SCOTUS methinks.

In the meantime, will the proles comply?

Never Register...

Beware the cult of "government"...

And then when you use it for

And then when you use it for self defense and someone gets wounded or killed.. ?

You're not saying I wouldn't

You're not saying I wouldn't be alive if I had a registered gun instead of an unregistered gun are you?

I presume u are saying you

I presume u are saying you may not have the registered gun with you because it is not legally permitted but you would have an unregistered gun because u are already ignoring the law?
If my presumption is correct wouldn't it still be wiser to register the gun and ignore instead when u can or cannot carry it with u?
You are still alive in either scenario

Not a Law

Laws, by definition, are not laws if they violate the Constitution.

This is true, even if the courts and legislatures disagree. Of course, just because it's not a law, doesn't mean they won't prosecute you for it.

And when the Gestapo comes to take your guns away, b/c you...

...registered?

Old saying in the 'hood...

"Better to get caught with it, than without it".

In many places where you would have to register, like NYC, handguns and now most guns period, are completely illegal. You can't even register because you can't legally have them.

So... In many places in America, you have no choice but to ignore local ordinances and state laws in order to exercise your 2nd Amendment right to self-defense...

If you get caught in NYC with a gun you may have to do some time, but you have several options open... Run away, go to trial, bribery (aka 'contributions to the court'), etc...
But if you get stabbed or shot or beaten to death or paralyzed because you didn't break the local law and exercise your constitutional right to bears arms, there are no choices... That's it.

And when the Gestapo comes to take your guns away b/c you...

registered...

then you get an unregistered gun..
Because as you say, "Better to get caught with it, than without it." now sincerely applies to your said scenario unlike in just a registered/nonregistered scenario.

But until then I still see no benefit in breaking the registering your weapon law if it exists. In fact I see more of a benefit in registering.

Yea, but you are also now a

Yea, but you are also now a prisoner because they will put you in jail or kill you if you resist.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

so you see the problem then

Glad I`m old enough to where that doesn`t matter anymore.

If it did I`d shoot myself.

Can't deny that

But I like looking on the bright side. If Yankees want to defend themselves legally, they should move to the South or West.

We have the Castle Doctrine in Texas, the state is getting more pro liberty, not less.

In florida

you don't have to unless you want a concealed carry.....but I guess your self defense is then limited to your home. I don't know if you can take it out of a box in your car and defend yourself though.

And the useless aholes in the Florida congress are trying to change and/or eliminate these laws. Especially our stand your ground law. Screw duty to retreat...

People just need to give up on new york now. It's a hopeless pit. I don't expect things to get any better with this diblowsi(intentional misspelling) either. If he was worth anything first thing he'd do would be get rid of stop and frisk but he's not gonna do that I bet. Even if he does then you still have an everest of issues left.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Correct, the act of registering is a contract. You have the right to contracts.

All rights reserved and no rights waived.

The state of MI.has no registration

for pistols.There is no law for them to do that
But they do it anyways>and if you do not comply,it
is a felony,jail time,fines and the loss of all arms.
So while we might have the right to contract,how is the above scenario
right? Seeing the state is the one breaking the law in the first place.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

...

You have a right to contracts. This includes to the right to revoke them.

This is an offer. If you fail to counter than you have accepted the offer.

Remember they want your rights and you have to fight for them.

So you want to learn how to fight?

All rights reserved and no rights waived.

certainly

it didn't help me at all pointing out that fact to the ones
"in charge" around here
whatcha got?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Read Sun Tzu's The Art of War. Are you fighting for honor or are you fighting to win?

Haven't read the book

But you asked a question. Knowing myself,let me try to answer.
If I do not fight with and for honor,I wouldn't win anyways
Getting back to the book,yes,I have heard of it before,per time constraints,I put that on the back burner
