New York Gun Owners Burn 'Assault Weapon' Registration Forms


Under the SAFE Act, residents of New York are required to register firearms that meet the state’s criteria for “military-style assault weapons.” The deadline is April 15.

Last Sunday, gun rights advocates met at the Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge 161 in Saratoga Springs to protest the registration requirement.

New York's SAFE Act

is not really a law as it was passed outside of the confines of the U. S. Constitution. That alone makes it null and void. "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." This 'law' infringes. The definition of "arms" as it pertains to the Constitution must include by definition, any weapons that any entity who may seek to threaten the "security" of "a free state" may possess. In other words; if a potential invading or domestic enemy who may seek to threaten our security, (if they) possess bazookas and rockets, the people should also "bear" bazookas and rockets, and that "right" "shall not be infringed".

Seems very simple to me, and those who would seek to complicate it (The Second Amendment) are simply out to 'muddy the waters' in order to serve their own agenda.
