How will NYS enforce the SAFE Act? With a Rights shredding mindset backed with Military Grade Weaponry

t square

By now it should come as no surprise of the of disdain that the powers that be in New York State have for its citizens.  From the crippling high taxes, to the infringement of rights, to the promotion of a neighbor spying on neighbor program etc.

Conversely though, those controllers in Albany seem shocked that people would finally have enough and say “NO” to continually bending over to the whims of those in power who disregard with “outdated” documents like the Bill of Rights or “silly” notions like Liberty.

What is Albany to do when the citizens it has tried so hard to make into servants finally say enough is enough?

Like all good totalitarian regimes, the one in Albany gets overwhelming firepower to suppress the masses.

In New York, that comes in the form of 18 ton, armor-protected, military fighting vehicles with gun turrets and bulletproof glass that were previously used by the US Military during the Iraq war.

MRAP

 

At nearly twice the overall size of the Humvee and at a staggering 38,000 lbs the MRAPS gets 5 miles to the gallon and runs the risk of collapsing bridges when it drives over them in New York.

These behemoths are being shipped around the state.  So far Albany County, Jefferson County, Steuben County and Sullivan County, and police in Nassau County, Plattsburgh and Hamburg Village have gotten their MRAPS with more being requested.  This is on top of the 150 up-armored Humvees and trucks that have been purchased over the past 2 years.

Yet, oddly enough, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple refutes claims that the police are becoming too militaristic:

“Nothing could be further from the truth. Our problem is we have to make sure we are prepared to respond to every type of crisis.”

And there you have it folks.  THEY need to be prepared for every type of crisis.  But they have no qualms about scoffing at our need to have a magazine that holds more than 7 bullets in case we are attacked by multiple people or our desire to be prepared in case something catastrophic happens and we need to protect our home from looters with our AR-15’s.

This small minded, do as we say not as we do bull, is the common tripe that passes for a defense in New York and among controllers in general.  THEY need to be protected so THEY can have firearms.  THEY can have military weapons and THEY can ignore the laws.

WE on the other hand, have to follow the rules, leave ourselves vulnerable, and get mocked about how the 2nd Amendment only allows us muskets.

Once again the hypocrisy of the controllers in New York is choking and unable to be digested.  Unfortunately now, they can just drive 38,000 lbs of hypocrisy down our throats.

    On one hand I’m tempted to say that New Yorkers deserve what they’re getting for voting the idiots into office that pushed the SAFE act through in the middle of the night. On the other hand of course there are many good, patriotic residents there who didn’t vote for any of these wannabe tyrants and they certainly don’t deserve any of this. I hope they’re ready to fight for their rights because I fear that’s the only way they’re going to get them back. It’s way too easy for Democrats to buy votes from the entitlement class with a few freebies.

      I would say that the vast majority of upstate New Yorkers are of the freedom loving type yet they are chained to the whims of their “gimme gimme gimme” New York city neighbors who will eagerly give up liberty for a government handout.
      What really needs to happen is the state to split in twain. The taxes are killing the upstate economy and they are getting dragged into the liberal dogma of NYC politics. A clean split just north of White Plains where Connecticut juts in on the state would be a perfect divide. The liberal utopia can go on unhindered in NYC and Upstate New York can rejoin America.

        I completely understand what you’re saying, but the thought comes to mind: “how long will these citizens allow themselves to be chained to the whims of the liberals?” If Obama and Holder can decide which duly passed laws to enforce, I think each individual needs to decide which laws to obey. For many the decision to disobey these unconstitutional gun laws would be just too much. I understand that; it’s their choice, but then unfortunately they have to accept the fact that they’re putting themselves in peril. Personally I can’t imagine obeying any law that denied my right to defend myself and my family. Of course that’s a risk that each individual has to weigh for themselves, but I would personally risk arrest rather than risk being killed or maimed by feral animals. I’m certainly not advocating violence, only preparedness. This is a very personal choice and, unlike a tyrannical government, I wouldn’t presume to tell anyone what their choice should be. I speak only for myself. Just because a majority votes for something doesn’t make it morally correct. If a majority voted to reinstitute slavery decent, moral people would never comply with that law. After all, a small minority of patriots decided to defy British law and America was born. Why are things so different now? Fortunately, I live in a free state in which I don’t have to make that choice, and this late in my life I have no interest in traveling to any of these tyrannical states. As a retired police officer federal law gives me the right to carry in all states as long as I meet the law’s requirements, which I do. How does my former career make my life worth more than anyone else’s?

      I believe that most, if not all, elections are now rigged, and the progressives will “win” every election from here on out. I simply can’t believe that Dear Leader was legitimately re-elected, given that so many precincts across the country reported more than 100% turnout, and all the votes for Obama. Your best bet is to move to a state that already recognizes your rights, and knowing that the new state could well turn, too, start arming up. This way, at least you’ll have enough AP ammo and other weapons that might give you a fighting chance when a union-member with a badge smashes down your door in the middle of the night to “…ask a few questions…”. The truth is, the govt is preparing to make war on us, and we need to prepare. It’s true that the govt has the bottomless pockets of the taxpayers to raid to arm itself, but ultimately, it’s boots on the ground by union members, whose union can be counted on to strike if life becomes too difficult for its members…

      And remember that the big city is where most of the votes come from nullifying those of us in upstate and western NY. We are helpless against that machine. Need proof of the insanity ?? Look no further than the new mayor they elected. Worse than the last one.

    Well said White Bear. And we are fighting for our rights very hard right now. Between states like NY, CA, CT, MD, CO, etc… that are passing unconstitutional laws there is a nationwide fight, and we need all Americans to stand up and say “ENOUGH”! We have individual duties to educate and inform as many people as possible about the wrong doing of elected officials. We have to remember what this country was founded on – our Constitution and the Bill of RIGHTS! Any elected officials who propose, support, or pass laws that violate our RIGHTS needs to be voted out of office post haste.

    “WE on the other hand, have to follow the rules, leave ourselves vulnerable, and get mocked about how the 2nd Amendment only allows us muskets.”

    Oh no. No no no. YOU New Yorkers CHOOSE to obey the laws. You are afraid to break the rules because you’re spineless and useless. You want guns for freedom but lock them away when tyranny comes knocking. You are all cowards and you deserve what you have; a complete and total shit hole.

      For the record, I happen to be a Pennsylvanian. The “we” was used in the sense that even visitors to New York are subject to the abuses of the state government. Not even visiting but simply passing through as many parts of new york do not acknowledge the right to travel from one free place (say PA) to another (say VT).

      • Deal With It

        All of the sudden the SAFE Act is unacceptable? Nobody figured that maybe over 100 years of asking permission to posses a handgun in your own home was in the same category of “gross infringements”?

        Yes, people who need to travel through New York are out of luck because New Yorkers are useless trash. You’ll have to treat it as a separate country that’s in the way of you and New England. Nothing can be done until people, specifically New Yorkers, start taking the right to keep and bear arms seriously.

        Of course there’s federal laws that COULD be passed, but good luck with that.

  • David Weakland

    New York Civil Rights Law art. II, § 4 provides that “[a] well
    regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the
    right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.”

    New York courts have held that the rights conferred by this provision
    are co-extensive with the rights conferred by the Second Amendment to
    the U.S. Constitution.1

    In People v. Perkins, a New York trial court rejected a section four challenge to New York’s pistol permit requirement.2 The defendant relied on the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, holding that the District of Columbia’s ban on handgun possession in the home for self-defense violated the Second Amendment.3
    The court rejected this challenge to the state permit requirement,
    pointing out that the defendant in this case was not in his home at the
    time of the crime, and did not have a valid pistol permit.4
    According to the court, the right conferred by the Second Amendment
    –and, by extension, section four– “is not absolute and may be limited by
    reasonable governmental restrictions.”5
    The court reasoned that the state law “does not effect a complete ban
    on handguns and is, therefore, not a ‘severe restriction’ improperly
    infringing upon defendant’s Second Amendment rights. Moreover, in our
    view, New York’s licensing requirement remains an acceptable means of
    regulating the possession of firearms … and will not contravene Heller so long as it is not enforced in an arbitrary and capricious manner.”6

    See, e.g., Citizens for a Safer Community v. City of Rochester, 627 N.Y.S.2d 193, 198 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. 1994); Guida v. Dier, 375 N.Y.S.2d 826, 828 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. 1975), modified on other grounds, 387 N.Y.S.2d 720 (N.Y. App. Div. 1976). [↩]

    A message to all our brothers and sisters just because we choose to live in NYS does not by default mean we voted these tyrants in office. NYS and NYC are two very different places so to all who think we somehow deserve this let me say…..you can go chew on the tip of my rooster.
    It’s easy to talk and criticize from a free state where in reality your just the auxiliary .
    The next time we hold a rally at the state Capitol why don’t all you others who talk the talk walk the walk and join us .
    Side note I choose to be here so I can…
    Fight and challange the liberal socialists parasites on a daily basis ,maybe changing hearts and minds. If not then definitely annoying the hell out of them with truth and facts. I also take great pleasure in catching someones attention ,putting on a big smile and giving everyone with a Obama sticker or liberal theme the finger as I drive by .
