Gun Owners Refuse to Register Under New York Law


Well it looks live Gov. Cuomo might have misjudged his power to bend the will of the people to his wishes.
After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new registration mandate while daring authorities to “come and take it.” 

Analysts say the legislation, passed in a frenzy last week in the wake of the Newtown shooting, represents the most brazen infringement on the right to keep and bear arms anywhere in the nation. Among other points, the so-called SAFE Act seeks to limit magazines to just seven bullets, require virtually all of the estimated one million semi-automatic rifles in the state to be registered with authorities, mandate reporting of patients who express indications that they may have thoughts about hurting themselves or others by doctors, and more.  

Aside from being unconstitutional, experts on gun violence also point out that the draconian schemes are a bad idea: Studies have repeatedly shown that more guns lead to less crime, and the phenomenon is obvious across America — just compare Chicago or D.C. to Alaska or Wyoming. The mandated reporting requirements for doctors, meanwhile, have come under fire from across the political spectrum. Whether it will even be possible to enforce the bill, however, remains to be seen.

Preparations are already being made for mass resistance. “I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes,’’ said President Brian Olesen with American Shooters Supply, among the biggest gun dealers in the state, in an interview with the New York Post.

Even government officials admit that forcing New Yorkers to register their guns will be a tough sell, and they are apparently aware that massive non-compliance will be the order of the day. “Many of these assault-rifle owners aren’t going to register; we realize that,’’ a source in the Cuomo administration told the Post, adding that officials expect “widespread violations” of the new statute.

Threats of imprisoning gun owners for up to a year and confiscating their weapons are already being issued by governor’s office, headed by a rabid anti-Second Amendment extremist who suggested before the bill passed that “confiscation” of all semi-automatic rifles was being considered. If tens or even hundreds of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens refuse to comply, however, analysts say New York would either have to start raising taxes and building a lot more prisons, or give up on the scheme that experts say will do nothing to reduce violence and that lawmakers say is aimed at eventual confiscation

Activists involved in the state-wide boycott against the unconstitutional statute who spoke to the Post almost taunted authorities, saying gun owners would essentially dare authorities to “come and take it away.” According to the paper, leaders of some of the state’s hundreds of gun clubs, dealers, and non-profit organizations, citing the New York Constitution’s guarantee that gun rights “cannot be infringed,” are currently involved in organizing the resistance. Among the primary concerns is that, with registration, authorities would know where to go for confiscation, an idea already proposed openly by Governor Cuomo himself.

“They’re saying, ‘F--- the governor! F--- Cuomo! We’re not going to register our guns,’ and I think they’re serious. People are not going to do it. People are going to resist,” explained State Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King, who also serves on the National Rifle Association board of directors. “They’re taking one of our guaranteed civil rights, and they’re taking it away.”

New Yorkers, register nothing!

  1. remember if you are a juror ... Jury Nullification

    1. Yep. Jurors have the right and the duty to try the "law" as well as the "crime". SCOTUS has ruled repeatedly that anything, even in the form of a "law", that violates or oversteps the boundaries or is not specified in the Constitution, is null and void, from its inception. In other words, if whatever someone is on trial for is not spelled out specifically in the Constitution, the jury must find that not only is the defendant innocent, the alleged "law" itself is null and void. Period. Judges and prosecutors absolutely hate this shit, and will not seat anyone on a jury who they think is aware of this truth. Should you be called for jury duty, discretion is the better part of valor, at least until you are empaneled for deliberations. Before you go in to court, visit www.sheriffmack.com and poke around the cases cited there, and maybe print out copies of the juicy bits to conveniently pull out of your pockets and share with your fellow jurors in order that they may properly understand their duty under the real law- our Constitution. This is the essence of effective grass roots reclamation of our free Republic from those who wish to enslave us. (Sun Tzu smiles...)

  3. That's the beauty of this type of resistance - they don't have to act. All the New York gun owner has to do is not register.

    In California in 2000, the DOJ received 27,000 registrations out of an estimated 500,000 to 1 million so-called "assault weapons" purchased. No howling mobs, no fiery sermons...and no registration to speak of.

    1. And, more important, Bill, the CA LEOS-especially the fascist perfumed princes in the State Attorney General's Office, made no move to go out and "round up the lawbreakers". Most cops own guns other than their service weapons. They are not going to turn them in. The New Yawk politicians may huff and puff, but we will have to wait and see if they have any real teeth.

  4. I believe that we need to get a bill introduced to tar and feather, run out of town on a rail, treasonous tyrants- starting with Cuomo and Feinstein.

  5. I would love to see Cuomo put into a life-like scenario where his life is in danger against 2-4 bad guys and he only has a 6 round magazine and no body guards.

    1. The resulting intestinal evacuation would drive off even the most hardened criminal.
