New York’s Governor Cuomo Edges Closer to Total Gun Confiscation

Opinion

Cuomo & Gun Control, Whos Da Man
Cuomo & Gun Control, Whos Da Man?

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “The ‘Few’ keep getting fewer!”

More misery for the few NY residents who still own guns:

NY’s Democrat governor, who (like most Democrats) wants to wholly eliminate the private ownership of guns, is now proposing a new measure designed to get him one step closer:

Governor Cuomo announced that he wants to add teachers, school administrators, and other school personnel to the growing list of individuals who may go to the head of the line in order to petition courts to issue “extreme risk protection orders” for individuals whom they believe “are likely to engage in conduct that would result in serious harm to himself, herself or others.”

“Extreme risk protection order” is polite terminology for abrupt and permanent gun confiscation.

So any teacher, even one who has never even met you, can capriciously decide that you’re “crazy,” and thus should not own guns. On the basis of his unsworn, uncorroborated, unprofessional testimony alone, one’s Second Amendment Rights as a American can be instantly, arbitrarily, and probably permanently annulled, without a hearing, without warning, without ever having been even accused (much less convicted) of any crime, and without any opportunity to defend yourself.

“Due process” does not exist in the minds of these liberal Second-Amendment haters!

Of course, the governor’s heavily-armed security detail will not be affected by any of this!

“Many politicians are, by choice, far-removed from their own electorate and thus continue to make the mistake of ignoring voters’ concerns, because they (politicians) have manufactured their own secure, comfortable, and insulated world, and refuse to ever come out of it, nor even acknowledge other worlds exists!” ~ Kurz

This article is erroneous, confusing and inflammatory. Firstly, the proposed law will evaluate STUDENTS, not PARENTS. The proposed law will allow the removal of firearms from my home if my SON is identified as a risk to himself or others. The details of how that is determined is not clear yet. But rest assured that I am not the one being evaluated. It will still take a JUDGE to determine if the guns need to be removed based on a PROFESSIONAL evaluation and LEGAL DEFINITION of danger from my son based on his mental state and actions. Frankly, if my… Read more »

especially if dad drinks beer and owns guns and tells his kids that the UN is a threat to our freedoms including the right to own and bear arms. the school may feel they are on his mind and will feel better if he was disarmed and his free speech also aborted.

Yeah, and they would probably be required to report if their parents own guns, NY State already knows if you own a handgun, as you need a license, issued by the state, that can take 2 years to get, to simply own a handgun. In addition needing permission from your boss, spouse and 4 notarized documents from 4 friends you know more than a year.

Reasonably simple, rather than go for a big chunk of law, such as “whether people can own particular types of firearms” a system of reforming some obscure “firearms control laws” is committed as what is known as “circumventing” , as the article near states, causing the ability to simply remove firearms ownership and rights from a niche / angle perspective of security using an obscure authority allowed to submit such a recommendation. Other points are, , when getting rid of “organised crime” you need to get rid of the “ORIGIN” of the supply, simply getting what is supplied the material… Read more »

There are 29 shown as accepting the Pa CCW and all but Vermont are accepted by Pa. On the Pa, legal list right now. S.C. does NOT accept Pa. Thus the non reciprocity with S.C.
Va has just recently decided to not reciprocate and Pa. will do the same with those from Va.

Here is how it works in NY now. An ex parte (Only petitioner’s word) temporary order of protection is issued. Law enforcement is immediately notified and guns confiscated. The “due process” is the family court must hold a hearing in within two week. When it does and the petition found to be bull shit, the order is vacated. But the cops won’t return the guns. The legislature that gave the family court the power to order the guns taken failed to give it the power to order the guns returned. Also pistol license is suspended but not returned.

So, some poor student makes the mistake of telling friends that his family had a great time at the shooting range over the weekend, or worse yet he and his dad harvested a deer in hunting season.
So he’s overheard by some anti gun card carrying PETA teacher who swears out a complaint and suddenly both father and son have their Constitutional right to firearms revoked.
The sooner this gets challenged in the Supreme Court the better.

Cuomo is another of the village idiots who think that criminals will obey anti-gun laws, but won’t obey the existing laws against shooting someone in the first place. Anyone ignorant enough to believe that laws against gun possession would stop a killing, surely has the worst case of the dumbass existing today on planet Earth or any other planet! Criminals are called lawbreakers because they commit acts that are against the law. Even criminals are smart enough to know that the punishment for killing someone is far more severe than it is for possessing a gun where it is illegal.… Read more »

SCOTUS can only hear cases that come before them, that’s assuming they decide to hear it. A case has to make its way to them. A poster above said there are three cases involving this law in New York in federal court right now. Maybe eventually, depending on the rulings in the three cases, one of them will make it to SCOTUS. But it will take a while.

Public schools may become the next weaponized government entity. It should frighten firearms owners in every state. Cuomo just named teachers as the most fearsome threat to a hundred million owners. The first line of defense is to move your children to private schools or begin home schooling. And the second line of resistance is to demand that your state establish credits equal to the state’s per-pupil allotment, spendable by parents in any accredited school, including public schools. Many states already have established such credits with monikers such as Education Savings Accounts (ESA) or Vouchers. Competition is a good thing… Read more »

So, if there is any merit to this concept, we should do the same to any and all rights under the constitution. Let’s have the same rules for driving privileges, ownership of knives, baseball bats and anything that one may possess that may cause harm.

With the same concept we should also do the same for politicians, if they are out of control they should not be allowed to think. The conclusion of that is they don’t think anyway.
