Can you hear that? Shhh. It’s the sound of For Sale signs going in the ground in New York as the few remaining intelligent citizens flee that blue-state, socialist, tyrannical hell hole for warmer, and more sane climes while they can! The New York legislature (including the wussypants Republican-controlled Senate) is poised to pass a law banning so called “assault rifles” and create a gun registry. As if living in New York was bad enough already!
NY Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan (go figure) said:
“To basically eradicate assault weapons from our streets in New York as quickly as possible is something the people of this state want and it’s an important thing to do. It is an emergency.
We are going to ban assault weapons. We are going to eliminate all of the loopholes that existed previously.”
The new laws include:
-Magazine clips would be limited to seven casings, down from the current 10.
-The agreement includes a “significant expansion” of Kendra’s Law, giving judges more latitude to provide services for mentally ill people.
-It would ban semi-automatic weapons made before 1994. Current law allows rifles manufactured before 1994 as legal.
-The state would create a rifle registry.
-The bill includes penalties for those who commit crimes with guns.
-Adjusting the definition of a banned rifle so that any single characteristic (a telescoping stock or pistol grip, for example) would qualify that weapon as banned. Existing weapons would be grandfathered in but could not be transferred.
-The state’s pistol permit requirements would be standardized; currently rules differ among counties.
Penalties for those who commit crimes with guns? Good idea, Sheldon! Maybe you can make murder illegal, too while you’re at it! That ought to do it! Plus, everyone knows that limiting magazines (not clips, you morons) to seven rounds will stop all gun violence and murder. Everyone knows that it requires at least eight shots to kill someone! And criminals are known to never have more than seven bullets! Idjits!
Another thing, the propaganda media and leftist politicians love to call semi-automatic rifles such as AR-15’s and AK’s “assault rifles.” The vast majority of these weapons are owned by law-abiding Americans who have them to defend themselves against criminals…and politicians (redundancy alert). A more realistic name for these rifles would be “Defense Rifles” as law-abiding citizens, like those penalized by these laws, do not assault anyone unless they have it coming to them.
Will the people of New York stand for this tyranny? This is not about gun safety as so-called “assault rifles” are used in a tiny fraction of gun crimes by CRIMINALS. The NY legislature and Governor want to disarm the good people of New York. Plain and simple. If New Yorkers stand for this madness, they deserve to live under the chains of their socialist masters!
Prediction, just as in Chicagoland aka Barakistan, gun crime will soar as the tyrannists achieve their goal of disarming honest citizens if this legislation passes. But again, gun control laws are not about gun safety but controlling law-abiding citizens with guns.
AWD realizes that New York City has about 9 million or so citizens. About 8,900,000 are complete libtarded morons. But upstate New York has people with at least some common sense who are crazy if they sit idly by while tyrannists legislate away their Second Amendment rights. There ARE things worth fighting over. The right to bear arms IS one of those fights! Cowboy up, New Yorkers. Once you lose your right to bear arms (there will be more anti-gun legislation on the way), you’ll never ever get them back!
AWD has some advice for those New Yorkers who are packing their bags for common-sense, Constitution-loving places like my beloved Lone Star state:
1. If you move to Texas, never ever tell us how it was better or how you did it in New York. We don’t care and won’t believe you. We will also tell your yankee ass that the same road that brought you down here takes your ass right back up to where you came from.
2. If you have one of those annoying yankee accents, remember that Southerners are genteel and speak quietly. Don’t be loud and obnoxious like is common in New York. We won’t like it and you will not be made to feel welcome. You might get a hard look or, in some cases, a boot up your obnoxious ass.
3. Don’t come here and vote for Democrats. Look where that got you up there in your socialist hell hole. Remember, you moved to our home and not the other way around.
4. If at all possible, don’t move to Texas. Consider North Carolina. It’s already full of yankees who have turned it from a common-sense conservative state to a purple cluster you-know-what. (Note: this does not include any dudes and dudettes who are regulars on AWD.com)
I would prefer the good people of New York to rise up and fight this legislation. There should be massive protests in the street to oppose these intrusions on the Second Amendment. Rise up, yankees!
And if y’all insist on coming down to Texas, our friend Lyle Lovett has a word for you. And yes, we do take Texas very seriously.
When asked where you’re from, just say “I’m from New York but I got to Texas just as fast as I could.” You’ll make a lot of friends that way. And all of them will have arsenals of defense rifles.
