New York – -(Ammoland.com)- As New Yorker's we know the “Threats we face” are not just terrorists and thugs who would take our lives in the streets, subways, planes and buildings.

We know there are also politicians IN OFFICE who would take away our ability to defend ourselves. They are also very dangerous.  We must remain forever VIGILANT and ABLE to push back!

I am reaching out today because the fact is we are facing yet another round of gun confiscation attempts by the ever America hating hard left in our back yard. We already face another fight next year to roll back the SAFE ACT, now we have round two of the SAFE ACT being rolled out in front of our infringed eyes.

NY Democrat Senator Jeff Klein proposes seizure of weapons from those on secret watch lists. That's right State Senate Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein has introduced legislation that would empower State Police to confiscate firearms owned by individuals on the FBI’s terror watch list or the federal no-fly list….Not sure what list is next. Not sure if you or I are on any of these “lists“.  Who knows how long they have been populating their….list.

Klein’s proposal would amend the SAFE Act to ban any person on either list from obtaining a gun license in New York, the same as the provision the governor is calling for the federal government to adopt.

Empowering State Police to seize firearms from “suspected terrorists” is a step beyond the controversial added background check layer. Wonder what steps they have in mind next? Time to nip this in the bud with two words. Due Process.

WE may need to sue to stop this in the courts. Your constitutional rights are protected by due process. New York State Rifle & Pistol Association stands with and defends any and all law abiding and lawful NY gun owners. We will fight to keep you from ever being subjected to this farce.

With your help, we will fight them in the chambers of power and at the ballot box.  If necessary we will take them to court and argue for:Due Process.

New York State Rifle & Pistol Association will continue to fight every day for your rights as we have for over a century. But just like then, we do our good work with the steady and strong support of our membership.

    1. Yo, Senator! Those lists themselves are unconstitutional. Those on them are not put there through DUE PROCESS, and are not informed, or given the chance to repudiate the claims against them – and did you forge tthat it’s “innocent until proven guilty” – a core concept of DUE PROCESS.
      I would have no heartburn with this if:
      1- everyone on or about to be on a list was informed, and told why
      2 – every listee could challenge their presence or intended presence on that list
      3 – that challenge costs them NOTHING.
      4 – if the listee prevails and is removed, the bureaucrat that caused them to be there pays all legal fees, from personal funds.
      5 – said bureaucrat gets to issue a public apology or is automatically guilty of defamation, libel, etc, and is fined 100k minimum, which must be paid to the listee out of personal funds.

      Go ahead. List me – I’m a hardcore conservative, so I know you want to! Try to take my weapons. Be sure your life insurance and will are up to date first: both will be needed.

    2. The American Civil Liberties Union was started by two known card carrying communists. Despite it lofty name, the ACLU and its members are not interested in American civil liberties, American notions of due process, or democracy. The ACLU was formed and exists for the purpose of destroying the American Constitution.

      It would be futile to look to the ACLU for the help that you need.

    3. The ACLU needs to sue the Government to get Due Process back. It has been taken away and this list is unfair when people don’t know if they’re on the list, don’t know how they got there or why and don’t know who put them on the list, thus cannot face their accusers. I’m pretty sure Kennedy was not a Terrorist. I would be willing to bet that someone with the name Hussein Obama may very well be on the list as well, or should be anyway.
      If the list is made fair and accurate, I don’;t have too much trouble with it, although I would rather see someone on the list get on a plane and be followed and investigated rather than see them turned away, rent a car and disappear into the country.

    4. Does that include him? He’s on a secret list too. It’s so secret that we cannot tell him which list he’s on, but he’s on it.

    5. I suggest he put a “gun Free” sign in his yard and on his office door. And, if there is any security at his office, he must do away with that service, just like I have to do!

    6. I bet he would use the Southern Poverty Law Center to come up with names of people and organizations for the terror watch list. We all know who they target after the attack on the FRC.

    7. If the people on this secret list are so dangerous, such threats, why is the list secret? Should not employers in our day cares centers, public schools, transportation facilities, health care, big rig trucking, etc. have this information? Why should people on these two lists even have drivers licenses? Tell the legislators that and see how long they support putting names on it.

    8. Formerly known as ‘Gestapo’, these types usually talk the talk, but cannot walk in the footprints of real patriots.

    9. New York is home to ‘Liberal Provincialism’. Unfortunately it’s spreading to other parts of the country.

    10. All you need do to have that question answered is, search ” 72 types of Americans considered suspected terrorists “. It will blow your mind to see what they could add to these lists their preparing .

    11. So would the secret list include people like us who routinely comment on these blogs about our dissatisfaction with how our government is striving to destroy America?

    12. Lets put all these democrats on the no fly list, terrorists trying to disarm Americans by scare tactics and inciting fear.
