Kirsten Gillibrand’s website has a press release regarding proposed legislation to curb “illegal gun trafficking” into New York. The press release has quotes from a lot of public officials in New York including the mayors of Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, Binghamton and Buffalo and Monroe County DA Mike Green.
Take a look at this blog post on the Snowflakes in Hell website which has a nice summary of their proposal with some thoughts on each point.
Yet another proposal that addresses actions that are already illegal and has as much gray area as any law we already have.
There are five main points described in the press release.
It looks like #5 is a lame attempt to appease legal gun owners while not really accomplishing anything.
Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) along with the Nassau PD have been hit with a $5M lawsuit. Freeport resident Gabriel Razzano had his home raided and his legally owned guns confiscated a day after he went to McCarthy’s office to discuss an article regarding an illegal immigrant. Details are sketchy but this might be one to follow.
See the NY Post article here.
If you don’t know who Rep. McCarthy is, she is a democrat who has represented Long Island’s 4th congressional district for over 10 years. Her husband was murdered in the 1993 long island railroad massacre. She is now the most outspoken advocate of gun control in the house.
Some of you may remember her from the infamous video of her on national tv showing just how brilliant she really is.
