New York gun owners planning to ignore New York gun registration?

Never give an order that you know is going to be disobeyed. It merely makes it easier for people to ignore the next order, too.

New York Governor Cuomo the Junior may have rushed through his new gun control law with such speed that police will avoid its restrictions only through the blessed miracle of selective enforcement, but he may have a little trouble getting the state’s firearms owners to attend his party. The new law requires owners of those scary-looking rifles known as “assault weapons” to register their property (amidst assurances that, oh no, the registration lists will never be used for confiscation), but gun rights activists are actively urging gun owners to defy the new mandate.

  1. Never kick a sleeping dog when he get up he may tear your leg off. New York just decided to kick the dog.

  2. I read the comments at Hot Air and agree with most, I have to ask, will you fight. New Youk will arrest one at a time, hoping to scare the rest. I think just having a AR 15 will get them 3 1/2 years in jail. Are they really ready to challenge the law? Are they willing to open the jail if somebody get arrested? Will they take to the streets when New York starts going after the guns? I hope so. I don’t think we will.

    1. In my humble opinion, a more important question is will non-owners lock arms and go to jail with them?

  3. As I predicted, mass civil disobedience…
    And if the State tries to enforce the ban, expect one whale of a Second Amendment lawsuit…I’d call it, “Everybody with a gun v. The State of New York”…

  4. Atlas Shrugged:
    “Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against – then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
