Albion, New York - -(Ammoland.com)- Joseph Palumbo, co-owner of the Albion Gun Shop, released information today that New York State Police officers from the Narcotics Enforcement Unit demanded the shop’s release of all customers who purchased New York SAFE Act compliant rifles under threat of a warrantless SWAT Team Raid.

Since the passing of the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (S.A.F.E.) Act, the New York State Troopers Narcotics Enforcement Unit has been delegated to enforce the S.A.F.E. Act and to handle all matters pertaining to the S.A.F.E. Act.

This unit has visited Mr. Palumbo on several occasions, disrupting his business, to see that Mr. Palumbo is compliant with the S.A.F.E. act provisions for licensed gun shops owners.

“The New York State Police told me that my guns were NY S.A.F.E. compliant. The chief of the Medina police told me my rifles were NY S.A.F.E. compliant and in fact purchased one of the guns from my shop.” James D. Tresmond, attorney for the Albion Gun Shop, raised the possibility of entrapment. “My client disclosed to me that he would not have sold these rifles to the general public had they not been approved by the New York Division of State Police”

Meanwhile, a confidential informant from within the state police released an email from New York State Police Division Counsel Kevin Bruen which insinuates that police department itself cannot understand the S.A.F.E. Act itself. The email, which was a response to a state trooper’s inquiry as to whether modified rifles were New York S.A.F.E. compliant. Division Counsel ordered that “a court would have to rule on the legality of these rifles”.

“The New York S.A.F.E. Act is being enforced arbitrarily on a case by case basis,” Tresmond said. “That amounts to unconstitutional vagueness under the Supreme Court’s Morales standard, and the law should be enjoined for that reason alone.”

Mr. Palumbo, concerned that his license to sell firearms in New York may be affected by recent solicitation by the New York State Trooper Narcotics Enforcement Unit, has retained Tresmond Law to represent him in all legal matters concerning any possible investigation or litigation made by the New York State Narcotics Enforcement Unit regarding his business. Mr. Palumbo opened up the Albion Gun Shop in 2012 and it is through this business that he makes his livelihood.

The Albion Gun Shop intends to take immediate legal action tomorrow morning to remedy this problem.

We will post updates as they become available.

    1. We need to disband police forces. That’s what those who thank officers for their “service” need to understand. Our liberties won’t be safe until the govt no longer has the power to oppress us. That means disarming th govt which means abolishing the armed agencies it has. Law enforcement has become the standing army many of the Founders warned us not to have. From the PA state police call of honor, “I am a Pennsylvania State Trooper, a soldier of the law.” Really? Not a peace officer? It’s passed time that these “soldiers” are discharged.

    2. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!! This is Exactly how the nazis behaved in the 1930s before total takeover of Germany and elimination of all civil rights.

    3. Purge whatever merciful intentions you may have towards such tyrants.

      “The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.” – General George Washington

    4. Just following orders is no excuse, they hung people during Nuremberg Trials for just following orders… .. it is a violation of the United States Constitution…..

    5. This is the way that DICTATORSHIPS work. The first thing they do is disarm the people and then enslave them for all time, We see it going on all over the country. Much of what is going on started in NY and then spread everywhere. Just watch what is going to happen next. Gun shops all over the nation are having the same problems as this one is having. look at the states that border the southern border, every gun shop has to keep a record of the types of guns purchased and where they are going to be kept and stored.

    6. I would stand my ground and fight. I am in IL where they don’t even try to hide the corruption.

      Don’t tread on me has meaning to some.

    7. Who in their right mind opens a gun shop in a fascist dictatorship such as NY/NJ/CT/RI/MA/MD? For the kind of money he’s got invested, he can get a much nicer place in a gun friendly state. We have much better weather too.

      Today they’re there for the list. Tomorrow they’re there for the guns. Does anybody seriously doubt this?

    8. So, Cuomo’s goon squads demand that the citizenry follow the letter of the law, which cannot even be understood by those who are tasked to enforce it, while they act in a completely lawless manner. Is there any clearer definition of tyranny??!!!! It is time for this gunshop owner, and all others in the once great state of New York, to have an accident which destroys all records of firearm transactions in which they have EVER participated.

    9. Those cops will someday be regular citizens they should be ashamed at these Gestapo tactics I believe they took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the State and the Constitution of the United States of America, they should question their bosses about those searches.

    10. @Jay Hanig……”Who in their right mind opens a gun shop in a fascist dictatorship?” Well, if we all gave up in NY instead of fighting back, they win in NY. When they have complete control in NY, they continue on to the next state, then the next one and keep going until people everywhere have your mindset…..just give up and move. You are weak Jay, and certainly not suited for the fight to keep our 2nd amendment alive and strong. We will stay and fight for you and others like you, because we are not weak and are ready for the fight. Because if we don’t stop them here, they will never be stopped.

    11. Just one more thought. Since the seizure of these records would be in direct violation of federal law, perhaps it is time for militia from around the country to set up camp around this gun shop. We saw how agents of tyranny backed down at the Bundy Ranch. Let’s find out how many State SWAT Officers are willing to forfeit their lives for Il Douche, Andrew Cuomo.

    12. And yet the gun grabbers keep saying that gun reregistration won’t lead to gun confiscation and the clueless believe them!

      Through out history gun reregistration has lead to gun confiscation and gun confiscation has often lead to genocide, the cold blooded murder of unarmed citizens made helpless by the law.

      In the 20th Century alone well over 100 million people were murdered by their own socialist governments, not in war but outright murder. In many cases gun laws were passed and guns confiscated from the victims before the mass-murder started.

      It can and will happen again!

    13. I bet this is a joint effort between the scumbag governor of NY, bloomberg pushing and the white house. It is the same old crap from these communist loving scumbags.

    14. If the NY state police gets the list they will assume the buyers also own other firearms and you can bet search warrants and SWAT raids will follow at these people’s home.

    15. “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.” [1776 Unanimous Declaration of Independence of the united States of America]

      It is time for everyone to recognize that Congress and the Executive branches of the Federal government are the “new KING”. Time to throw down the gauntlet and evict them all.

    16. CUomo is going before I am………….. Folks, another really good reason to make the time to vote in November. 40% of the eligible voters in this state are libtard Democrat in the ny city AREA. THIS MEANS IN ORDER TO EXPUNGE THE GOVERNOR’S MANSION OF THE Cockroach living there, the REST of the state must vote

    17. We were assured by the anti-gun politicians that the 4473 forms would be kept by the gun dealers and they’d never be used to create a national gun registry, and they’d never be used to confiscate firearms. We can tell they’re lying because their lips are moving. The records kept by the FFLs ARE a distributed national firearms registry, and the BATFE is making life hell for small gun dealers like Mr. Palumbo because they’d much prefer to have far fewer larger FFLs, largely because they can more easily compel the larger FFLs to do their bidding by threatening to make their businesses unprofitable. They’re already coercing the larger FFLs to use software to register all gun sales, by capturing all of the 4473 information and that software has a back door that allows the BATFE and other government agencies to do queries as easily as they could if the data was all turned in to the BATFE. There’s another advantage to closing down the smaller FFLs. The BATFE gets all of the 4473 forms when a dealer goes out of business. There’s your national firearms registry.

      And now we’re seeing New York and California using the 4473 data to confiscate legally owned firearms. In California, there are a number of disqualifying factors, and they not only disqualify the individual, they disqualify everyone in the entire family, based on granting access to firearms… yes, even if the family member keeps their guns locked in a safe, they are not allowed to have them in the house, and raids are routinely done to confiscate these firearms.

      What country is this, anyway?

    18. The good little commies of NY state will knuckle under for Big Brother Cuomo. Just like in California. Keep voting Democrat NY! Soon you will all be slaves…

    19. Does this business owner need financial assistance with his legal costs? If so, an online fundraiser should be started for him. There are a number of crowdsourcing sites. I’m not a NY resident, so someone there should step up and start this.

    20. Cops are not regular citizens just like you and I. A retired cop is not bothered by 7 or 10 shot magazine limits. It is part of the SAFE Act to excuse the rules for them. A retired cop can carry in any state they want. It says on their pistol permit “retired Police Officer”. They are not in the same sinking ship the rest of us are from the SAFE Act. If they were they would be more vocal and critical of it they “regular” citizens which ARE you and I.
