New York –-(Ammoland.com)- In response to the SAFE Act gun registration numbers released by the New York State Police, NYSRPA President Tom King made this statement:

“I am amused at the pathetically low numbers of New Yorkers who registered their so-called assault rifles.”

“The number of individuals who registered their guns is 24,000 and many of these are law-enforcement officials mandated to comply by their department. “

“In short, New Yorkers have, by their lack of compliance, effectively repealed a portion of the NY SAFE Act. Congratulations to the gun owners of New York State.”

“The NY SAFE Act is a blatant violation of our specifcally enumerated Constitutional freedom, period. I am proud of the comprehensive litigation that NYSRPA has filed with the help and support of the NRA to overturn this deeply-flawed law. New York gun owners know it is flawed and they are not complying with it. I am confident that we will ultimately prevail in getting significant portions of the law overturned in the courts.”

The bottom line is 23,847 people since the 2013 law took effect have applied to register assault style weapons. A total of 44,485 weapons have been registered.

Well there you go! There just aren’t that many guns in New York. The gun grabbing liberals have made much ado about nothing. How many cops are there in the state of New York anyway? Their number is 3.56% of the population, soooooo 1000,000 plus is a good estimate. I know they wouldn’t ignore the laws so there must be a bunch of unarmed or very smart police in NY.


I hope this article is completely accurate. If it is, I applaud every gun owner who said NO. The fight has to start in each state to say “Hell No” to the liberals gun haters. At some point, we all will need to group together.


I tend to think the report and number of NY’ers who didn’t submit to this tyranny is accurate. If anything,I think the 23,847 might be high,and is probably 90% LE who were ‘forced’ to do so.


As a former New Yorker I sayshame on those who did but weren’t required to by an LEO Dept.


NY’ers need to keep it up and don’t comply with the gun grabbing trash. You don’t want the gun grabbing scum to know what,where or how many firearms you have period. I live in Texas,a free state,and don’t tell anyone about my firearms except certain family members and just a couple of friends that I know can be totally trusted not to run their mouth.

What did you guys ever discover happening with all those empty Walmart stores? How many cities have been invaded by American soldiers? I bet the fight is really fierce. Have the Chinese started using the tunnels under Walmarts to start marching hostages out of the state yet. How many from your area?


Actually, a of 15 February 2015. Approximately 2,000,000 Registered Gun Owners in the State has Registered, mainly Online Registry…


Bullsh*t !

kitchawan kid

their next step will be to get some poor slob and charge him to the maximum for having an unregistered firearm to make a example


I agree .I think Cuomo is a vindictive nasty POS. He is going to take this personally and do anything to save face.


If 1640 people registered their assault weapons in Manhattan, how many unregistered rifles are actually in Manhattan? WOW………..

You can’t have a pistol in Manhattan. That and it is one of the most densely populated places in the world.


Them New Yorkers are showing a lot of backbone and making one hell of a stand agains’t tyranny. That really makes me proud. They have right on their side,not to mention the 2A to the U.S. Constitution.


Perhaps you should reconsider your opinion of New Yorkers, if you think we are all liberal Manhattanites. Millions of conservatives live in the state, unfortunately under the shadow of NYC, whose residents consistently vote left. We have the choice of fight or flight and many of us have chosen the former. in his last election, Andrew Cuomo lost 90% of New York State but carried NYC heavily, leaving all here with another term of IL DOUCHE. Between the NYC deep pocket liberals, inner city welfare sponges and illegal aliens, average working Americans are left fighting for a meager existence. The… Read more »


Conservative estimates put the number of rifles that would have needed registration under this putrid law at 1 million, with some estimates as high as 1.5 million. So 44,485 out of 1,000,000.

That’s pretty funny.


Cuomo will say this is a rousing success, to cover his ass.


I bet the AG of New York does not have the guts to go out in the city and arrest all the law breakers. I have seen nothing about the AG arresting all the illegal aliens that should be shackled and carted off to jail. Sounds like Cuomo is just like Obama. Neither of them have any respect for the law, unless it is the law that they signed. Both are traitors to the Constitution of the United States, and this country. Maybe the U.N. blue hats can arrest them for crimes committed.


No ex post facto .right to privacy .
But the UN doesnt want NYers coming to UN HQs with 5000 armed people with ar15’s with 30 round mags ,when the ATT includes ISACS provisions which includes limits, bans , storage and inspections. Basically all out firearm control on a global scale the next phase of New World Order.


TX Gov. Abbott has already said the blue helmeted SOB’s aren’t welcome in Texas. If they try and show up here he will have them forcefully removed. (He already did it once a couple years ago (as AG) when they wanted to monitor some elections in Texas) That New World Order crap might happen in the socialist states we already have (you know the ones) But never in Texas,…never !

I know it won’ happen on MYwatch!

I thought it was the US Military that Texans are so afraid of. Now it’s the UN, also? They have no authority to do anything on US soil, but once Texas secedes from the US(bunch of traitors!) the UN might come down and put a whooping on you.


At some point, it is going to take a five million gun owner march to prove to there liberals that their idea of life, and freedom, does not coincide with ours. Hopefully this will be enough to make the statement we need to make.

John J. Jones

And you’re going to set up the logistics for such an event, right, Einstein?


What you are saying is very reasonable and could be done ! 5Million might not be possible, but 1-2 million would have them same effect. Its worth contacting the GOA,NRA,TSRA,2A Foundation,and dealers,suppliers,…all the pro-gun manufacturers, orginizations,businesses with the deep pockets and coordinate this event ! The power brokers on the pro 2A side of the issue could make this very doable.

John J. Jones

Have you seen a psychiatrist lately? It sounds like you may not be qualified to own ANY guns.


I normally don’t respond to gutter trash like you but will make an exception. You seem to have something to run your mouth about on everything. But you are constant for sure. You are wrong about everything you say and make no sense at all. Get that critical mental evaluation you so desperate need ! ‘Texas like a whole other country’ !….and with Gov.Abbott, it will be sooner than later too ! III


Has the Vatican expressed concern over this? LOL


I’m still waiting for the Pope to provide me and my family with a bullet proof van and a small army to protect us.
