New York’s Latest Gun Law Would Put Women at Risk

By Dan Wos, Author of – Good Gun Bad Guy

USA – -( Gun restrictions give killers the upper hand. Background check waiting periods keep good people unarmed for extended periods of time. So, while the anti-gun crowd is pushing for universal background checks and a lengthy and expensive licensing process, (that the bad guys will pay no attention to) good people are left defenseless because they’re subjected to unnecessary costs, waiting periods, and often avoidable delays.

Pamela Smith and Melissa Roberts from Kentucky are two examples of women who were able to defend themselves and save their own lives with a firearm. Carol Bowne was not so lucky. The State of New Jersey denied Carol the right to save her own life by implementing unnecessary waiting periods for her handgun purchase.

43 days after Carol applied for her handgun permit in her home state of New Jersey, she was stabbed to death by the very man she feared. New Jersey legislators decided that Carol should wait an extended period of time before being able to defend herself, even though she had previously reported her killer to police and even obtained a restraining order against him. Carol Bowne didn’t want to be a victim, and she did everything she could within the law to protect herself. But the State of New Jersey decided that they knew better.

The motivation behind these dangerous gun laws is often an irrational fear of guns, perpetuated by an anti-gun media, but most often, gun restrictions are politically driven. Universal background checks and extended waiting periods for firearm purchases are a perfect example.

According to the FBI, in 2019, an estimated 1,203,808 violent crimes occurred nationwide in America. With just over 320,000,000 people in America, we are each left with about a 1 in 300 chance of being the victim of a violent attack. Because of those odds, many have decided to defend their lives and the lives of loved ones with a firearm. There were over 8 million new gun owners in 2020. Many of the first-time gun owners were encouraged to become gun-owners, by the violent left-wing riots that continued throughout the summer.

Of the 2.5 million yearly defensive gun uses (DGUs) in America, 46% are by women. It’s obvious that the trend is moving toward gun ownership, but Democrats in Albany, New York are trying to stop that trend. Amy Paulin, a New York State Assemblywoman, has decided she would like to prevent New Yorkers from being able to purchase a firearm, despite the number of lives saved by possessing them. She has proposed a 10-day waiting period to purchase a gun and has drafted a bill to make sure that you and your family remain unarmed, defenseless, and dependent on local authorities for as long as possible. I thought we wanted to empower women. The gun-grabbers seem to want to make them helpless by the gun-laws they propose. Albany Legislators believe that they know best when it comes to firearm ownership, so they have drafted Assembly Bill A00449 as a way of undermining your 2nd Amendment right.

Amy Paulin’s Assembly Bill A00449 would make sure that violent attackers would be safe from people defending themselves. Should this bill become law, it is sure to embolden criminals by limiting their risk when confronting their victims.

Assembly Bill A00449 is described as:

“AN ACT to amend the penal law and the general business law, in relation to establishing a waiting period before a firearm, shotgun or rifle may be delivered to a person.” “Establishes a ten-day waiting period from contact of the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) before a firearm, shotgun or rifle may be delivered to a person.”

The intended purpose of the bill is not explained. If it were, its results could be measured should it become law.

In the left-wing fantasy world, bad guys are victims of society and lawful American citizens are to be condemned. This dangerous Democrat bill would allow criminals to rule the streets, putting good people in a defenseless position. Albany Democrats show no shame in making New York more dangerous in pursuit of their anti-gun political agenda. Our founding fathers knew that people like this would maneuver their way into our government. That’s why the 2nd Amendment was written.

The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.

I was born in kommiefornia where I resided until I retired, I mean escaped. I am in my sixties now but I remember when all of this waiting period stuff started that people in opposition was saying it would hinder the ability to protect themselves against perpetrators. The lefts argument was that the law was needed to stop someone that was mad for whatever reason from going out and getting a gun to settle an argument hours after it had happened. In the mean time ever since these waiting period laws have been enacted I have read time and time… Read more »


Any group who elects Cuomo and de Blasio deserve what they get! There are a lot of things that can be fixed, but NEW YORK STUPID IS NOT ONE OF THEM


It is the city dwellers that are voting for Cuomo and de Blasio. The COUNTRY dwellers can’t stand either of those communist clowns. And of course the PRODUCERS of goods and services are out numbered by the welfare check leeches that get to vote too. The one reason our Founding Fathers didn’t want non property owners to vote was for the exact same reason you see happening before your eyes. NON PROPERTY OWNERS VOTE THE PROPERTY OWNERS PROPERTY AWAY.

Put another way: “When you rob Peter to pay Paul, the robber can always depend on the support of Paul.” And in this case, there are more Pauls than Peters.


Two states, New York City and New York, include Long Island with the city.


One other thing Dan…the 2nd amendment isn’t a “right”. It is a PROHIBITION against the GOVERNMENT. The “Bill of Rights” was drawn up so that those in the government would understand: THESE ARE A LIST OF RIGHTS THE PEOPLE HAVE. IN CASE YOU ARE MENTALLY SLOW, YOU ARE TO LEAVE THESE RIGHTS ALONE. THEY DO NOT EXIST BECAUSE OF THIS PAPER. THEY EXIST BECAUSE THEY ARE NATURAL UNALIENABLE RIGHTS THAT EXIST BECAUSE YOU EXIST. Saying the 2nd amendment is a right makes it so that if it went away, you wouldn’t have that right anymore. Do you actually believe that… Read more »




Obviously the politicians and bureaucrats are responsible for this death and they get off as usual.


So, while the anti-gun crowd is pushing for universal background checks and a lengthy and expensive licensing process, (that the bad guys will pay no attention to) Hey Dan, will I be a “bad guy” if I ignore these psychopathic control freaks edicts? ANYTHING that restricts someone from defending themselves is immoral and should be shunned. PS…there is only ONE reason, and ONE reason only they want us disarmed. Because then they can REALLY put the screws to you. THE USSA will become, in history, just like every other communist country the world has ever seen with mass murder of… Read more »

The current ‘system’ that is in place is ALREADY placing women – and men for that matter at risk. End of story – it needs to be fixed.


Of course the special caste that has been raised around us the last 150 years or so, don’t have that problem. They get to have all kinds of things we the people can’t have. And remember, all THEIR jobs are essential but you, Mr. Mundane, don’t have an essential job if you work or own a gym, hair salon, restaurant or a long list of jobs THEY don’t believe are essential.


One of the greatest lies of 2020: “We are all in this together.”


Dan, I think you left a zero out. “With just over 320,00,000 people in America”.
If NYS only had a ten day waiting period, It would speed up the bureaucratic process already in place. While there’s no “official” wait, the numerous delays are typically much more than ten days. Yucch!


This is just outrageous. Why were others approved of having firearms while others weren’t. If they had to legalize having firearms then it should be equal to everyone. Great article you have and great website here. Always informative.


Buy certain guns in Washington State and it’s a 10 day wait. It used to be if you had a CCP there was no wait at all.
