In the mid 70's when they began registration of long guns the citizens ran to register their guns in a NY minute. They were practically tripping over themselves to do it. Most people are very law abiding, but just can't fathom what govt's true intentions could be.
I think that knowing them as well as I do I can say that NYC dwellers for the large part are extremely naive and have lived under the city's mind control of them their entire lives, thus making them more willing to obey whatever the city says. When under the thumb of tyrants too long you become enslaved without even realizing it and do whatever you are told.
In addition in Gov. Cuomo's State of the State Address he was proud to say that NYS had passed a gun law back in 1911 called the Sullivan Law. Yes, he's proud of a law that was passed to keep guns out of the hands of the Irish. He should also brag about how paddy wagons got their name. Amazing what politicians can say and get away with!
