Not unlike what’s happening in Connecticut right now, New York gun owners are refusing registration, blatantly defying the state’s unconstitutional new gun control law, called the NY SAFE Act.
We recently reported how gun owners in New York burned at least a thousand registration forms in defiance of the law. We also noted that police arerefusing to enforce it, as sheriffs in other states like Colorado and Connecticut that have new gun control laws are doing.
According to new figures leaked by sources inside the New York State Police, as many as 90% of gun owners may have refused to register their “assault weapons,” as only 3,000-5,000 guns have been registered so far. The deadline to register is April 15.
According to BearingArms.com, while the state waits for the “registration of 1 million firearms designated as ‘assault weapons’ under the NY SAFE Act,” leaks believed to be coming from within the New York State Police indicate the number registered to date is “as low as…3,000-5,000 firearms.”
This is figure is impossible to verify beyond a shadow of doubt because a provision in the SAFE Act forbids law enforcement from releasing registration figures.
This is only part of the problem for Governor Andrew Cuomo and the liberal gun grabbers in Albany. According to one state assemblyman, sheriffs across the state won’t be going after those who have refused to register:
In January of this year The Oneida Daily Dispatch reported that Assemblyman Bill Nojay (R-Pittsford) suggested that law enforcement is not going to be eager to go after those who refuse to comply: “The rank and file troopers don’t want anything to do with it. [And] I don’t know of a single sheriff upstate who is going to enforce it.”
Nojay continued: “If you don’t have the troopers and you don’t have the sheriffs, who have you got? You’ve got Andrew Cuomo pounding on the table in Albany.”
It’s no wonder Remington, America’s oldest gun company, is packing their bags and putting their new facility in pro-gun Alabama instead of New York, taking all of the jobs with them. When liberals like Cuomo have made it clear that they want conservatives and pro-gun people out of the state, then pass tyrannical, unconstitutional laws like the NY SAFE Act, it makes perfect sense that they would leave. Those who don’t have that luxury, however, need our support as they stand up to liberal gun-grabbers.
