Albany, NY --(Ammoland.com)- Governor Cuomo awoke this morning to a massive problem, one million plus new felons, all armed with scary, high capacity, assault weapons!
Yesterday was the deadline for New York residents to register their so called “Assault Weapons” and “High” (read standard) Capacity Magazines.
An estimated million plus, formerly law abiding, gun owners have refused to comply with Cuomo and down state Democrat’s naive belief that the NY Safe Act, passed in a so called emergency session of the New York legislature, could force free people to register their hard earned property.
The New York Safe act, passed without public comment in the dead of the night, was a direct attack on law abiding, tax paying, owners of legal guns. Now, New York Democrats have no idea on how the state will resolve this problem as they have neither the resources or in many case the backing of law enforcement to round up this massive group of dissenters.
The implementation of the SAFE Act to date has been plagued with problems. Legal confusion, lawsuits and dozens of county legislatures across New York adopting resolutions condemning the SAFE Act. Many sheriffs have gone on record in opposition to the law, saying they refuse to enforce it. State police have been very quiet while at the same time quick to adopt court rulings knocking down parts of the law.
Neighboring Connecticut state, with a million plus felons of their own from a similar half baked law, have the same issue with no comprehensive plan on how to resolve this case of mass civil disobedience.
And who can blame these once lawful gun owners, with a president that picks and chooses which laws he will follow or enforce, as well as an Federal Attorney General that operates daily with a Contempt of Congress charge and gun running scandal, “Fast & Furious”, hanging over his head. Why should the average New York joe, bother to follow the law, especially when it is in direct conflict with the Constitution of the United States, the one true law of the land.
Good morning New York and good morning USA to the new reality of living without the rule of law.
Molon Labe America!
