Hornandy Shrugs, Stops Selling To New York

From Guns.com:

Steve Hornady, the company’s president of manufacturing, announced on social media on Friday that the ammo maker will halt sales of their products to Cuomo’s state government or agencies in the Empire State. The move comes after an order directed by Cuomo earlier last month that cautioned banks, insurance companies and lenders against involvement with the National Rifle Association and similar organizations. Slamming the Governor’s move as one of the most “despicable acts ever perpetrated by any state,” Hornady closed the doors to the state.

Parts of NY SAFE Act Repealed

From Buffalo News:

The Cuomo administration’s director of state operations, James Malatras, has signed a memorandum of understanding with State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan to undo certain aspects of the New York SAFE Act gun control law, though the major changes affect provisions of the law that were never implemented and that pertain to ammunition sales.

Curiously, the memorandum of agreement does not contain the governor’s name, nor that of Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie. But State Senate Republicans said the effect of the memorandum signed by the State Senate and the Cuomo administration effectively blocks implementation of a couple of SAFE Act provisions.

NY SAFE Act Kills Business and Jobs

From TWC News:

Jackson Guns and Ammo in Henrietta has closed up shop, and owner Kordell Jackson said that New York’s SAFE Act is to blame.

“We were struggling with all the rules and regulations, the New York SAFE Act as well as the New York State payroll taxes, the state taxes, all these taxes,” Jackson said. “You can’t stay in business with all this going on.

Jackson closed up shop Jan. 17.  He says the decision was difficult.  After spending five to six months looking for ways to keep his business viable, Jackson said closing made the most sense.

NY Sheriff Tells Citizens To Throw Pistol Permits In The Trash

From The Washington Free Beacon:

Three counties—Fulton, Albany, and Schenectady— were chosen in January to take part in the pilot program for pistol permit renewals. Five hundred “invitations,” as the state government dubbed them, are being sent to residents in each of the counties.

“I’m asking everybody who gets these invitations to throw them into the garbage—that’s where they belong,” Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey said at a meeting with Second Amendment supporters.

Insomnia Reason Enough to Take Your Guns in NY

From American Thinker:

Although the Cold War ended over two decades ago, a lawsuit filed December 17 in U.S. District Court in Rochester, NY alleges that such heavy-handed police-state tactics are presently being employed in Andrew Cuomo’s New York.  The suit, filed by attorney Paloma Capanna on behalf of plaintiff Donald Montgomery, alleges that the New York State Police ordered the permanent confiscation of Mr. Montgomery’s registered handguns after he sought treatment for insomnia.  The confiscation was ordered under Cuomo’s “SAFE Act” gun-control law.

Buffalo PD Searches Obituaries For Gun Permit Holders

From WGRZ:

Buffalo Police say they’re determined to get more guns off the streets and now they’re checking to see whether pistol permit holders have passed away and what happened to their gun or guns.

“We recently started a program where we’re cross referencing all the pistol permit holders with the death records, and we’re sending people out to collect the guns whenever possible so that they don’t end up in the wrong hands,” said Police Commissioner Daniel Derrenda.” Because at times they lay out there and the family is not aware of them and they end up just out on the street.”

NY Sheriff’s Deputy Turns Into Fascist

This is what happens when you give the government power over you. Police officers like this disgrace the profession. Police are there to serve the citizens. The citizens are not the enemy.

P.S. Note to cops everywhere: Act as though you are being filmed, because you are.

Update: The officer has been arrested, resigned and is now facing assault charges.

NY State Confiscating Guns

I thought “they” said it wouldn’t happen?

From Conservative Daily:

We learned of another incident from a post on NewYorkFirearms.com. A Nassau County man answered his front door to see a swarm of cops. He was told that the police were there to check his firearm’s serial numbers. Under New York law, the police have the authority to verify that the serial numbers registered with the State are correct. That is one of the conditions of owning a firearm. However, in this particular incident, Police entered the home without a warrant.

It was only after the safe was opened that the police informed the homeowner that this wasn’t a routine inspection… it was a confiscation order. After registering his firearms with the state, the police realized that the man had been found guilty of a misdemeanor charge FIFTEEN years ago. Not only was it a misdemeanor, but it might as well have been a lifetime ago!

The More Laws They Pass The More People Will Innovate Around Them

From Times Union on the New York SAFE Act:

“It’s basically an AR-15 without the features,” said James Tresmond, a western New York lawyer representing H&H Firearms, a Lackawanna gun shop that’s seeking to sell such a rifle.”

Thanks to modifications by a Texas-based machine shop, the stripped-down rifle has an adapter that connects the spot where the grip would go to the stock, or portion of the rifle that the shooter braces against her shoulder.

Remington, Khar and ATI Bail on New York

All three gun companies are in the process of leaving New York state because of the “SAFE Act” and taking their tax dollars with them.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story:

“It is a law forced on rural New Yorkers by a liberal elite who opposes the principles of the U.S. Constitution,” Hempel said by email. “The majority of the state wants a hands-off, non-intrusive government, which does not interfere with their right to bear arms or crush business with harmful regulation.”

Son Makes Threats, Dad Has Pistol License Revoked

From HauppaugePatch:

According to Mayer, his son spoke with a few of his classmates about a pushing incident on the schoolyard, and although Mayer’s son was not involved in the scuffle, he and two of the other boys talked about bringing a water, paintball and BB gun with them to the house of the classmates that did the pushing. While Mayer’s lawyer said that none of the boys actually have any of the toy guns mentioned, word about the perceived threats got around to the principal, who not only suspended Mayer’s son for two days, but also filed a police report.
