NY State Confiscating Guns

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

From Conservative Daily:

We learned of another incident from a post on 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!

New Yorkers Refuse to Turn In Neighbors

From CBS Albany:

Just one New York State resident has been arrested thanks to a gun tip hotline set up by state police, according to the state Department of Criminal Justice Services.

In February of 2012, 11 months before the state passed their stringent gun law known as the NY SAFE Act, a hotline was set up for people to call who thought they knew someone that possessed an illegal gun. If a person was arrested and convicted the tipster would receive a $500 reward.

This information along with the lack of guns registered in Connecticut proves the point that citizens will simply ignore the law when they feel it is unjust.
