    It appears to be an ongoing work in progress.
    If I read it correctly (quick scan), it appears that ALL firearms will need to registered on an annual basis. Apparently there is a problem with gramps' old huntin rifle that needs to be addressed. $10 fee, per gun, per year. Looks like a tax. NY state is bankrupt, I'm surpised it isn't $500 per gun.
    NY isn't going to be happy until they drive everyone out.

    First I heard about it but it's not surprising. :( Didn't NY pass similar legislation to be effective last Jan, all firearms to be ballistics registered with the State Police? I was sure the legislation passed but hadn't seen anything saying it had been funded. :confused:

    Sounds like another infringement to me.

    Sounds like a good reason for evacuation or refusal on a large scale. I wonder what the penalty would be for registering a non-existant firearm or, more to the point, several thousand people registering a dozen each that are imaginary? Wonder how much poking their gubmint computers could take.

    There is still property available down here in MS. It is legal here to have a concealed firearm in your car + : Legal Resources "2) It shall not be a violation of this section for any person over the age of eighteen (18) years to carry a firearm or deadly weapon concealed in whole or in part within the confines of his own home or his place of business, or any real property associated with his home or business or within any motor vehicle. "

    The humidity isn't that bad.

    I believe this bit of dreck was also intoduced last year. And the year before. And the year before. Referred to Codes (committee) is a nice way of saying, "Yeah, sure. Uh, we are not going to debate this. Send it over to the Committee that advises us on this subject." Such bills usually (not always) "die in committee". The committee does not report back out on them, leaving them an unfertilized egg that gets swept out at the end of the year. If you are a New York voter, I WOULD contact my state congresscritter, let him know I am opposed to any further uneeded laws.

    BTW, mention of this bill is going viral- all over the internet. I'd rather save energy for stuff that has a chance of happening. Don't think this is it.

    I know nothing about this bill, so please feel free to skip over this post if you are hear for facts on it.


    I have this to say about that.......

    Good EFFING luck!! Do you have ANY idea how many WW1 and WW2 vets came from NY/NJ and other eastern states?!?! And then came home to those same communities with "spoils of war"?? :eek::confused:

    The odds of "registering" all existing "long gun" weapons would be about 10,000 to 1, AT BEST.
