    Default SAFE Act protesters to burn registration forms

    SAFE Act protesters to burn registration forms - Politics on the Hudson

    The NY2A Grassroots Coalition said it’s holding an event Sunday in Saratoga and will burn gun-registration forms associated with New York’s SAFE Act.
    The event starts at 1:30 p.m. at the Elks Banquet Hall, 1 Elks Lane.


    “NY2A is inviting the public to burn SAFE Act registration forms, which will be provided, in the parking lot of the hall. The protest burning will take place at about 4 p.m,” the advisory for the event says.


    “The event is designed to highlight the importance of NOT registering firearms with the state. NY2A and other grassroots civil rights organizations have held or scheduled more than two dozen SAFE Act forums around the state ahead of the April 15 firearms registry deadline.”


    The state is requiring all firearms to be registered by April 15. Opponents of the law signed in January 2013 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo said they won’t comply with the registration requirement.


    “In Saratoga, speakers will address ways to avoid the firearms registry that include civil disobedience, as well as modifications that can be done to a firearm so that it does not meet the state’s arbitrary and capricious definition of an “assault weapon,’” the group said.


    Rallies were held at the Capitol last year in opposition to the gun-control law, which is the toughest in the nation.
    The state Rifle & Pistol Association is suing to overturn the law, and said it won’t run rallies this year as it focused on the lawsuit.


    Sunday’s rally will include a raffle of an AR-15 “that does not meet the legal definition of an ‘assault weapon.’”


    The proceeds will go to the “continuing fight against the SAFE Act.”


    More from the group’s advisory about Sunday’s event, which will include a voter-registration drive:


    “Firearms registration has historically led to confiscation. And firearms registries have often failed due to low participation rates. So far, the state has refused to release the number of registered firearms under the SAFE Act.


    “The importance of direct political action will also be discussed and NY2A’s More Than Vote campaign will be presented to gun owners. Voter registration will be available on site and we are inviting area residents to learn more about volunteering for political campaigns.”

    First off don't waste twice the amount of paper and money.

    You want to make a statement walk everyone into the same NYSP barrack and respectfully ask for a registration form, You paid for them. Then go to the protest and burn them.

    If you had everyone walk into Albany Barracks on the 1st to get the forms to burn that would be the proverbial ****. Of course everyone would be arrested for arson, make sure you get your burn permit first. Also I know everyone loves their Hunting gear and everything but wearing a 3 piece suit would sure add confusion and piss on the stereotype. If I can make it I have a nice pinstripe all picked out.

    Could just tear it up right in front of them and ask for another, a la Ron Swanson with vegan bacon.

    Being the capital I'm sure they have a law on open fire, hence why I suggested seeking a burn permit if one exists.

    I guess you could but, Realistically as a trooper would you hand over a second one? And proving your point too a single trooper who might actually agree with you doesn't present much of a message, you want the display to be reported via the news. Women didn't "liberate" themselves by destroying bras in the middle of Macys, they did it in front of News cameras.

    Getting a burn permit was the first thing that came to my mind too, Nfngun. Nothing like getting jammed up on a violation for a peaceful protest...

    Celebratory bonfire is actually an exception in NY fire law ... should work for SAFE act forums, but probably wouldn't fly for the April 1 rally.
