Gun Owners To NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo: F*** You

Gov. Cuomo

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration may encounter some challenges in terms of compliance with the state’s newly passed gun control law.

Rushed through the legislature in part probably as a function of Cuomo’s 2014 presidential ambitions, the bipartisan measure appears to contain some reasonable, non-controversial provisions. But that is apparently not the case when it comes to registering so-called assault rifles by the April 15, 2014 deadline.

The New York Post claims that Second Amendment advocates plan to organize a boycott of the registration requirement that reportedly could become the largest mass act of civil disobedience in New York history:

” ‘I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes,’ said Brian Olesen, president of the American Shooters Supply, one of the largest gun dealers in the state …

“Leaders of some of the state’s 300 gun clubs, gun dealers and Second Amendment organizations are organizing the boycott — and the heaviest interest is in Suffolk County, the Capital District and the Buffalo region, sources said …

” ‘They’re saying, ‘F— the governor! F— Cuomo! We’re not going to register our guns,’ and I think they’re serious. People are not going to do it. People are going to resist,’ said State Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King, a member of the NRA board of directors. ‘They’re taking one of our guaranteed civil rights, and they’re taking it away.’ “

The Post points out that in addition to the US Constitution, a New York statute — with very similar wording to the Second Amendment — protects the rights of gun owners.

Specifically, Article 2, Section 4, of the New York Civil Rights Law reads as follows: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.” Note that the Second Amendment states that the right “shall not be infringed.”

The likelihood is that lawsuits challenging the statewide gun registry (and perhaps other aspects of Gov. Cuomo’s new gun control law) will soon clog the courts.

When push comes to shove, do you think gun owners will actually boycott the New York assault-rifle registry? Those who are found guilty of refusing to comply could face up to a year behind bars.

    Cuomoism at work. What an anti-American. He is living proof of the need of the 2nd Amendment. When government has a monoply on force millions die.

    What's even more funny is the propaganda- as if the people want this; "Million Mom March prepared to protest guns" – note: the caps on the "m" so its a title, in reality only 200 people showed up. but the pro-gun protest ranged 7,000 people and the article was a small font, detailed lacked, blip in the news. "BLOOMBURG APPROVES OF CUOMO' – who the hell cares? that Israeli bought clown is a despot. Another propaganda tactic is the usage of pictures- they show weapons new yorkers could never have (uzi's, bullpups, actual military grade weapons), this is a tactic for the ignorant to believe THOSE are the weapons they are after; meanwhile the photo was taken from some drug cartel cease in another country. This is a power trip, they twist the meaning of assault weapon to cover semi-automatics; trying to relate to the term assault weapons= auto, burst and semi used by the military.

    never make this a political party thing- because its about people and controlling powers, the ignorant make this a political party thing causing the sheeple to just listen to what ever party they voted for , never truly looking at the matter, and only pledging allegiance to the party.

    defeated viewpoint. 7000 protested, thousands more working that day, probley didn't go, it would over crowd the system
    it would be an act of civil disobedience that would flood the court systems. at most it would be a fine making an eel like Cuomo richer
