USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The New York State Legislature is trying desperately to disarm law-abiding citizens with their new 2nd Amendment violating gun grab attempt called AB–7771. It’s a gun control bill that would make it nearly impossible for law-abiding citizens to own a gun in New York State.
Among other things, the bill includes the requirement of gun owners to pass a state-administered mental health exam before purchasing a gun. We’ve already seen how Democrats ignore their own delusional totalitarian views of the World and label their political opposition Nazis, terrorists, racists, deplorable, and crazy Trump supporters.
What kind of score do you think you’d get on a mental health evaluation administered by a Democrat-appointed mental health official?
AB–7771 also includes a required five-hour gun safety course with a state-administered exam, passing a shooting-range test with 90% accuracy, drug, and alcohol testing, approved firearm and ammunition storage, and a criminal background check. Keep in mind, if the gun owner is successful in meeting all these requirements and jumping through all the left-wing political hoops, the State of New York always reserves the right to refuse gun ownership …just because.
Remember, New York State is a “may” issue state which means your gun ownership can be denied for no reason at all. AB-7771 would create a more difficult path for gun owners, in the hopes they would choose not to possess firearms or make it easier to qualify them as “illegal” gun owners, subjecting good people to criminal charges. Should this bill become a law it would give “officials” a larger list of options to blame for gun purchase denial and more ways to disarm New Yorkers.
Keep in mind, The same bureaucrats who are pushing this bill, are letting prisoners out of jail at an unprecedented rate. Led by non-elected, placeholder “Governor” Hochul, New York State legislators seem to be doing everything they can to create a victim/predator society. Why would they do that? How would it serve Democrats in New York to make good people vulnerable while simultaneously empowering the bad guys? By creating a victim mentality and instilling unnecessary and irrational fear in citizens, they become much more compliant and willing to sacrifice their freedoms for “perceived” safety. By empowering criminals and giving them the ability to endanger society, totalitarian-minded power-seekers can create chaos the likes of which only they can fix by implementing more restrictions and policing tactics. In other words, they create the problems so they can provide the solution. The solution always includes the elimination of your rights and more control for them.
The old saying, “it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun” is not hyperbole. It is truth. That is why the political left likes to shame people who use the term. The idea of people protecting themselves from predators threatens the power of the predators by empowering the people. This scenario has been the bane of Democrats’ existence. A victim/predator society creates the perfect scenario for the Hero to come in and save the day. Guess who the “Hero” would be.
The good news is, because of the terrible job Joe Biden is doing at the national level, State level Democrats may be more hesitant to support laws like AB-7771 which blatantly violate the rights of their Constituents. Regardless, New Yorkers need to step up and speak out against these tyrants before they can create more self-serving violence at the expense of those who fund their paychecks.
The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.
