New York State has sent out letters of confiscation to everyone on their universal registration list, informing them that they either have to get rid of them (out of state) turn them in or have them confiscated and face arrest. Now, this same list of gun owners and the specific guns they have….Isn’t that the same universal registration the left keeps saying won’t lead to gun confiscation. Maybe it won’t lead but it will provide a major assist. Any rifle or shotgun capable of firing more than 5 shots must be turned in or moved out of state.
Here is the letter gun owners are receiving:
New York’s SAFE Act is a bad, bad thing. It requires people to register, sell or transfer (out of state) “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines. Many Empire State gun and standard capacity ammunition magazine owners have complied. Many have not. So, at some point, the State’s gonna go get ’em. People on both sides of the law enforcement divide will die and the s will hit the fan. Meanwhile, there it is: the reason why expanded background checks, indeed allbackground checks and any type of registration, set the stage for confiscation. And tyranny. [ED: This notice was sent for New York City residents, based on New York City laws, not necessarily SAFE Act provisions.]
Departing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a major gun-control activist, with his coalition recently sponsoring an ad that depicts an Adam Lanza-type character entering a school full of children.
New York state, meanwhile, passed the NY SAFE Act in 2013 in response to the Sandy Hook shooting. The law, which bans “high-capacity magazines” and puts in place other stringent controls, was signed by governor and 2016 presidential hopeful Andrew Cuomo.
