    Dem's now have senate majority here, some recent bills that will probably now be passed.

    Makes it a crime to not lock up your guns

    A76A - Passed NYS Assembly 2008
    Creates crimes related to the unsafe storage of a weapon and criminally
    negligent storage of a weapon to protect children, and others, from
    injury and death due to unauthorized access, discharge and use of
    weapons.

    All new handguns need a child safety lockout

    A829 - Passed NYS Assembly 2008
    Proscribes persons, firms or corporations engaged in the retail business of
    selling firearms from selling, delivering or transferring child operated
    firearms; defines "child operated firearm" to mean a pistol or revolver
    manufactured 1 year after the effective date of these provisions which does not contain a childproofing device or mechanism incorporated into the design of such pistol or revolver to effectively preclude an average 5 year old from
    firing same

    Bans 50 Cal, NO grandfathering

    A2772A - Passed NYS Assembly 2008
    Bans the sale, use or possession of 50-caliber or larger weapons and directs
    the division of state police to embark on a program whereby persons currently in lawful possession of such weapons may be reimbursed for the fair market value thereof upon turning such weapons in to a designated officer.

    Stricter assault weapons ban, need to register grandfathered weapons

    A7331A - Passed NYS Assembly 2008
    This bill would replace the definition of an "assault weapon" with a new, stricter definition that relies on the characteristics of the weapon and includes definitions of assault weapon devices that are designed to enhance the lethality of these weapons. In addition, the bill would exempt persons in lawful possession, control or use of an assault weapon from misdemeanor
    violations if they: render the weapon permanently inoperable, surrender the weapon or register the weapon with the ballistic databank.

    Pistols to microstamp ammo

    A9819A - Passed NYS Assembly 2008
    Requires all semiautomatic pistols to be equipped with a microscopic array of characters that identify the make, model, and serial number of the pistol on the firing pin, which would copy the characters onto the cartridge case of discharged ammunition.

    Half of those are completely unreasonable, and they are all ridiculous. Not just unreasonable mind you, but impossible to implement. Hasn't anyone learned that microstamping doesn't work?

    Get rid of everything south of Dutchess country and Albany that would be the end of most of the lib areas, well buffalo is a shithole too.

    Not that it would matter I'd still be stuck in the shitty part. :o
     
  6. They don't want microstamping, they want manufacturers to give up selling guns in the state. It doesn't matter if the microstamping works or not.

    Heller will smackdown the 1st one. Sadly the rest are things that ignorant reps are likely to vote for.

    Do they not realize that the firing pin doesnt strike the case? It strokes the primer which can be removed pretty easy

    Why remove the primers when you can just pick up the casings?

    For that matter file down the firing pin. :cool:

    They just want to make it hard enough that manufacturers give up on trying to keep up with the regulations and just stop selling in the state.

    1 and 2 I dont feel bad about, 3 and 4 are of course lame, the last one I do hate though. Pointless pointless pointless. What if you go to the range and leve your brass then someone picks it up and later tosses it around a crime later to throw the hounds off?

    If a kid or thief can get ahold of your gun, you are made of fail and should not own a gun. They do seem redundant, but one or the other or both are not horribly lame IMHO.

    so then maybe blame/responsibility should be placed with the gun owner to make sure its not accessible to kids (if you have any), and take proper precautions to prevent a robbery?

    holy shit, people being responsible for themselves? what a novel thought.

    hook. line. sinker.

    Are you also going to hold me responsible for when someone steals my car and runs someone over with it?

    The idea of punishing the victim is beyond bad.

    Teach your kids gun safety at a young age and this won't be a problem. Keeping your guns locked up, like in D.C. is ridiculous, there is no point in having them for protection. Parents should be responsible for instilling morals on their children.

    I agree you should be repsonsible if your small child gets a hold of your gun and hurts himself. There are already laws like this in effect in all places as far as I know. We're talking about a law forcing childproofing devices on all guns to be sold.

    You also didn't defend your statement on why I should be held responsible as the victim of a crime.

    so then why dont cars have to have child proofing equipment so they're harder to drive?

    or swimming pools, considering they kill more children per year than guns.
