*snort* Do you REALLY believe that New York police are going to venture into the ghettos to seize weapons from criminals, or will they go to the law-abiding citizens who dutifully registered their weapons and paid their fees and made it all too convenient for the nice law-enforcement officers to seize valuable weapons without remuneration?
Being a law-abiding citizen means that you’re about to get screwed. Better not to be a law-abiding citizen.
So, what are your options? You can elect to go down in a blaze of glory, as it were, taking as many of your oppressors with you as possible, but there are other ways. You can elect to go guerilla and start attacking city/state services. If you work there, you know where all the vulnerable spots are. You can pretend the law doesn’t exist and hope that the Albany Mafia doesn’t want to make an example of you.
And the politicians that want to grossly invade your privacy and take away your right to defend yourself? I don’t think they should have another peaceful night’s sleep. They wanted to be public figures? Give it to ’em good. Crowd their offices daily asking for their decisions as to what brand of toothpaste is better, and what type of toilet paper you should use. Keep their phones on speed dial so that you can ask their opinion of a movie. Argue that you should be protected from predatory movie theaters. Complain about the popcorn price. Make sure they know that you despise the ground they walk on and that they can never eat in a public place without having disgusting foreign substances in their food and drink. Stalk them.
Move away. Take your means of self-defense and go to a gun-friendly state. If you have a pension being paid out of New York, even better! Take that money to a more deserving state. I’m sure that there will be lots of folk clamoring to move to a safe place where nobody has any means of self defense, and it will become a peaceful paradise just like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Maybe the Amish will turn New York into a large farming community. If you elect to move to another state, just stay up north, please.
I’m sure that all y’all have LOTS of good ideas on how to hamstring the Feds should they come sniffin’ around your place. Feel free to post them!
