New York: Legislators Propose Outrageous Ammunition Restriction Legislation

Fairfax, VA -( Two New York legislators have announced that they are introducing legislation in 2016 that would severely limit ammunition purchases.

State Senator Roxanne Persaud (D-19) and Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon (D-52) want to pass a law that would limit ammo purchases to twice the capacity of the firearm during a 90-day period (3 months)!

Undeterred by the failed SAFE Act, anti-gun lawmakers in Albany seem determined to pursue the same failed policies and will not stop until the Second Amendment is completely dismantled. The SAFE Act has done nothing to lower crime in New York and has turned law-abiding citizens into criminals. The SAFE Act had its own ammunition restrictions and required ammunition background checks which were suspended after Governor Cuomo embarrassingly realized that such a system was impractical. In addition, the last attempt to regulate how many rounds a person could load into a gun was overturned by a Federal District Court in New York and ruled unconstitutional.

Persaud and Simon are justifying this bill by pointing to terrorism, as if terrorists are going to voluntarily ration ammunition. There are so many problems with this legislation that it would be impossible to highlight them all herein. Again, for the sake of New York citizens, we would hope legislators start focusing on the serious issues facing the state and stop introducing these embarrassing ideas.

It’s readily evident that the two lawmakers know next to nothing about the subject of firearms and ammunition. Manufacturers don’t even package ammunition with such a random number of cartridges in many cases. This is one of the most absurd bills being introduced in the entire country.

However, because anti-gun legislators in New York have a history of defying logic, we will treat this legislation as another serious attempt to infringe on your constitutional right to self-defense.

Never underestimate the power of voter fraud, the Democrats favorite weapon. for example there was an election in 2010 WI city that had more votes cast than voters, not one prosecution. Why do recounts consistently favor Democrats? Lyndon Johnson was one of recent history’s voter fraud practitioners. Democrats have stuffed the ballot box and turning election days into the nights of the living dead. In Lyndon Johnson’s first run for Congress ’tis rumored that Lyndon was out in Johnson City Cemetery copying names from tombstones the night before the election. He squeezed by that one and forever became known as… Read more »


If its coming out of New York that dumb idea will most likely pass Assembly houses and upstate senate will pass it. There Gov will put it in to law. That state is there own country those people are not living in America you have to feel for them if they can leave less stress. New York will never change it will get worse with more Anti Gun Laws.

Both of these Marxist hags should be tarred ,feathered,and set alight by the very words of our founding Fathers. Then they can ride splintered rails to Canada as loyalists to the Tyrranical Crown did before them. Oh but to see Canadian Customs overwhelmed by US Birkenstock bolsheviks fleeing north! Marxist college professors from California in little more than grey poNY tails and Tye Dyed t shirts wouldn’t last long in their Volvos at 20 below. And I would not miss them nor their many misdeeds one bit.


I have to get my two cents worth in; UNBELIEVABLE ! and STUPID ! …………. I’ve stocked up on my ammo and I hope N.Y. does the same !


The more these ignorant people speak, the more money gun and ammo makers make. New Yorkers will start stockpiling ammo. They should anyway. The Obamaclyps is about to start as he enters his final year.
