Is that surprising? Many of the most vocal anti-gunners either carry themselves, enjoy 24/7 taxpayer provided armed security or in the case of many Hollywood libs have made millions starring in movies full of gratuitous violence. I can deal with a person having a principled, intellectually honest opinion different from mine...hypocrites drive me crazy and I have no time for them.

Words are now being spoken by anti gun politicians that they would never have said before. The Blaze posted today an audio of NY Gov Andrew Cuomo stating that the feds were moving too slow and that the state's restrictions on weapons are useless with too many holes like Swiss cheese and that he wanted the total ban of all military look-a-likes, including those that the former Gov Pataki had grandfathered in 2000, which included hi cap mags. He went on to say that he'd consider CONFISCATION with some sort of monetary compensation, but felt at the very least these weapons should all be registered, which could easily be confiscated at a later date. But it was OK that he owned a shotgun that could blow someone's head off with one shot.

NYC enacted registration of long guns around 1976, but after many years of patience eventually required those weapons that they didn't like to be either sold to a dealer and a receipt must be obtained as proof, or individuals had to surrender those weapons to the city without compensation. Failure to abide by their instructions led to the loss of their license to possess any weapon in the city. Even the purchase of mail order ammunition is illegal in NYC. Registration leads to confiscation, end of story.

Well this unscientific poll seems not to validate Mr. Bloomberg's claim...what a surprise. I believe Mr. Bloomberg should put down, and back away from the crack pipe!

Someone said a more thorough backround check. Please suggest in what way? The check now confirms you don't have a felony conviction, that you are a citizen, what else could they check for? I mean you could make it like a backround check for a pass onto a nucleor power plant, but that takes a long time, and is quite expensive. In fact that expense would probably keep most of us from having CCWs. We are pretty regulated now, and I don't know how more would help.

I saw something elsewere that said we have made marijuana, cocain, heroin and meth illegal, and you see how well those laws keep that off the street.

In my nitestalker Poll I found that 3/4 of all liberal Democrats were unable to make a decision on anything. My Polls show that Liberals lack a thinking process most likely a DNA thing. In order to guide them the DNC invented NPR,MSNBC and CNN.

Yes we have Democrats and I know who they are.

No compromise, no deals, no backing down. Our membership All need to make sure the NRA understands this.

...and that our Senators and House Members also understand this.

I full expect no action from congress resulting in an uncontitution Executive Order. Before it's ever signed...it's up to us to let State and Federal LEO's know that will be ignoring anything Obama signs.

They would be wise to ignore it as well.

I'm an NRA member and I support reasonable restrictions on firearm sales and ownership. Much to Bloomy's dismay and disconcern we would have to go back to before the 1934 Miller decision to get back to anything close to what could resemble reasonable restrictions. What we have now is a right that we have allowed to be abrogated and whittled at until it is a privilege that they let us exercise at their discretion. We have to pay through the nose for a pale reflection of what our founders intended and they are using every tragedy they can to make that reflection paler.
They tell us that no civilian should own a weapon of war. I agree. I don't want an A10 Warthog. I can't fly one and I don't think I need that kind of destructive capability nor do I think I need any kind of machinery that can take one out of the sky. A handheld or shoulder fired weapon regardless of rate of fire, cosmetics, mechanical function is an arm. It was clearly as plain as day stated 235 years ago that I have the right to keep and bear arms. It didn't say a word about naval ordnance, heavy artillery, airborne equipment, armored equipment. Just arms. Doesn't seem like rocket surgery to me. I don't have the higher thought process of the enlightened liberals to understand the plain english in the constitution I guess.

I say that before we subject honest citizens to an extensive background check to purchase a firearm we require that all voters show proof of residence and candidates for President produce their birth certificate.

Hmmm... I'd say Bloomberg is once again full of shaving cream.

Why do we need any type of gun control? Was gun crimes worse before there were gun laws? The laws addressed crimes of murder robbery etc. Why does it really matter what tool was used to complete the crime? The worst school yard mass murder in 1927 the perp used dynamite and home made shrapnel . The first gun laws were used to control certain classes of people. The Middle Class is under attack do you feel the pressure?
