NY Sheriffs Refuse To Enforce New Gun Laws

From Bearing Arms:

“I have to enforce it because I swore to uphold the laws, but I can use as much discretion as I want,” said Richard C. Giardino, the Republican sheriff in Fulton County, northwest of Albany. “If someone intentionally flouts the law, then they’re going to be handled one way. But if someone was unaware that the rules have changed, then we’re not going to charge someone with a felony because they went into their barbershop with their carry concealed.”

Such criticism has been heard from Greene County, in the Hudson Valley, to Erie County, home to Buffalo, the state’s second-largest city, as well as from groups like the New York State Sheriffs’ Association, which called the new law a “thoughtless, reactionary action” that aims to “restrain and punish law-abiding citizens.”

NY Man Receives $21,000 In Gift Cards At Gun Buyback For Printed Guns

From WKTV:

“I’m sure handing over $21,000 in gift cards to some punk kid after getting a bunch of plastic junk was a rousing success,” laughed Kem. “Gun buybacks are a fantastic way of showing, number one, that your policies don’t work, and, number 2, you’re creating perverse demand. You’re causing people to show up to these events, and, they don’t actually reduce crime whatsoever.”

NY Counties Oppose New Gun Laws

From Bearing Arms:

In Niagara County, the county legislature this week approved without dissent a resolution opposing the new laws, but also calling for the county to adopt “whatever legislative and legal remedies are necessary and appropriate, including working in coalition with other counties, to overturn the state law.” It’s a move backed not only by the county lawmakers, but local law enforcement as well.

NY Returns To Its Racist Past With New Gun Law

From Ammoland:

Maj Toure has always said all gun control is racist. If you think the racism that led to gun control laws in the past is dead, you would be wrong.

One of the most bigoted laws that the Supreme Court recently knocked down was New York State’s laws surrounding the concealed carry of a firearm. The so-called “Sullivan Laws” was set up by the Irish in New York to prevent Italian immigrants from obtaining firearms legally by adding the “proper cause” clause to the law. This allowed New York to deny the right to carry a firearm to anyone it chose. The Supreme Court rightfully knocked down the law, only to see New York pass the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA) that put a “moral character” clause into effect.

Anti Gunner Learns Wrong Lesson From Subway Shooting

From NY Daily News:

The permissive public carry championed by today’s gun rights advocatesis a sharp break from all this. It is not rooted in text, history or tradition but is a recent development in American history, one that only gained ground in the late 20th century. Such laws have not made Americans safer, but have led to more gun deaths and injuries. It’s little coincidence that states with stronger gun regulations are also those with fewer gun deaths.

That last line is in bold because Cornell is actually using the shooting in NY to argue there should be more gun regulation even though the shooting he is so “upset” about happened in one of the most strict areas of the country when is comes to guns.

Pros and Cons of Mandatory Firearms Insurance

From Ammoland:

Anti-gun politicians in New York are proposing mandatory liability insurance for some firearms owners. Let me give you the pitch and let’s see how you react. Yes, this is a test of sorts, so you might want to have some coffee before you dive in.

The theory is that honest gun owners cause crime. The law holds gun owners liable for everything that happens. Gun stores and gun manufacturers are held liable too. They are even liable for the actions of criminals who steal guns until the guns are reported stolen. I didn’t see any first party indemnification, so if you try and stop a robber who is stealing your guns and he shoots you with one of your own guns then you might be held liable. To sum up the theory, society would be safer because criminals will be disarmed after honest gun owners lock up their guns. The politicians say we would finally have peace on our streets, and who could object to that.
