A New York lawmaker released a “secret list” of Democratic gun control plans. The Republican reportedly feels the proposals would undermine the Second Amendment. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, New York recently approved some of the most restrictive gun laws in America.
Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin used Facebook to inform his constituents on the matter. McLaughlin maintains his Democratic peers begged him not to release the gun control secret list. The New York assemblyman stated the Democrats did not want the public to view the list of proposed gun control laws.
McLaughlin maintains the secret gun control agenda would have passed if he and others had not fought back. Some gun rights activists believe the list is evidence that progressives intend to go much further to ban guns and accessories, according to Examiner.
The New York Republican had this to say about the gun control proposals:
“First the new gun control bill made criminals out of law-abiding New Yorkers. And the radical, anti-Second Amendment proposals outlined in this wish list suggest the second phase of the plan – confiscation. When downstate politicians criminalize responsible gun ownership, they only empower criminals.”
The list of Democratic gun control proposals included:
Confiscation of assault weapons
Confiscation of 10 round magazine clips
A statewide database of all guns
Continue the process of publishing gun owners names and addresses
Labeling of all semi-automatic shotguns with pistol grips or more than five round capacity as assault weapons
Limit magazine round to five and confiscate banned magazines
Prevent citizens from owning more than two magazines
Prevent citizens from buying more than one gun per month
Re-license all current pistol permit holders
Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
Pistol permits would be issued by the state and not local law enforcement
Licensing of ammunition dealers
All New York guns would be micro-stamped
All guns would have to be kept locked inside the home
Add a fee for registering and licensing guns
