Not a shocker from NY!
A bill has been introduced in NY to completely ban any and all shooting sports programs inside their schools. Interesting to see if it picks up support from anyone.
Who entered this bill ... a DEMOCRAT !! ... it figures, I knew it before I even looked at the story ... little democrats vote for these BIGGER democrats who then want to stifle the 2A and any firearm usage ... it churns ones stomach ... smh ..
If it doesn't go through our Emperor of the Vampire state will make it an" executive order".He is going a little bananas lately,giving felons the right to vote,giving inmates notebooks so they can get on the internet;trying to up his political future on the backs of New Yorkers.
Two local schools by me just started trap teams and the kids are all excited, now this I guess they would rather kids play video games and get points for killing the most “people “ or maybe smoke pot or gamble because the state supports that .
this will be a hard bill to get through the Senate. In any event it needs to be fought.
Then there is Chuck You Schumer trying to get dope legalized throughout the US. Our illustrious NY Senator, what a tube. Dems begone.
Our clubs are packed with students wanting to get on trap teams,,,, Schumer what a tool,,,,,, my friend lives in Colorado, loves it, but said, the dope legalization has not been that good for the state, from what he has seen,,,,,
Nope, dope is just that, and when it comes to trap guns and shooting programs in schools, I think people will come to their senses again and they will regain popularity. Someday, when all the Dems have shot themselves in the feet so many times that they just aren't credible anymore (not that they are now), and they fade from power, and eventually existence. Bye.....
This will be a hard sell, not even sure it makes it out of committe. Upstate dems are going to shy always from it as that’s not something they want to talking about with re-election coming up. Add to that the special election where no where near as blue as they wanted in contested races...I don’t see this bill getting to a vote.
Precisely one of the very reasons I left NY nearly 8 years ago. Fed up with all aspects of the liberal politics...not to mention taxes. OK has its problems but I am free to spit n cuss out my back door w/o the media showing up!
up in Minnesota there is even a worse bill introduced, once again by a DEMOCRAT ... that would virtually do away with all gun ownership ... I'll see if I can find it again ..
WHAT THE BILL SAYS The House bill would:
Expand the definition of an “assault weapon” to include many semiautomatic pistols, rifles or shotguns and makes possessing them a felony, with the exception of some that were legally registered before February 2018. Those owning a grandfathered assault weapon must undergo a background check, renew their registration annually, and use them only on their property or at a shooting range. Such weapons could not be sold or transferred, only surrendered to law enforcement for destruction. Ban private gun sales, or the transfer of firearms between family members or through inheritance; all sales and transfers could only go through licensed dealers. Such sales and transfers would have a two-day waiting period. A record of all gun transfers would be filed with the county. Make possessing bump stocks, silencers and many “large capacity” magazines — which hold more than ten rounds — a felony. Require all ammunition to be purchased from a licensed dealer, and require a record of all sales for three years. Make it illegal for people who owe court-ordered child support to own firearms.
JTV...Good God! Taught US/World History for nearly 40 years. THAT is nothing but the socialist/Communist agenda (Bernie/Chuckie) of the leftists in this country. Try such as that in TX, OK and see how long you last in office. Reasonable gun laws have a place....such a bill has no place with respect to folks who abide by the present laws. The founders fought to have the Constitution as the supreme law!
Al liberal policy mimics socialist's ideas. All liberals are democrats. Yet there are many a democrat among us here that says there is no need to fear democrat policy concerning gun ownership. While this is just noise more then likely, the fear in it is this wasn't possible 20 years ago because no one was that dumb. It does in fact show a shift in or society and why we had all better wake up. Because the good ole republicans ain't our friend anymore either.
WVM.....BINGO! That 'noise' in NY became the SAFE Act.
