    I dont exactly know why, but I do know this they are either devious or stupid. I dont know or care which.

    What in the hell is the point of this? The problems with doing this, and how little it would really help with identifying guns, is insanely obvious even to the uninitiated. I mean, if everyone knows where it is... what is that, TD, a 5-minute job?

    Why are we always trying to pass laws to "correct" problems that either don't exist, or won't be corrected by said laws?

    New York has gone insane. No wonder all the reasonable New Yorkers are fleeing.

    Yes, they always have that one guy who is a specialist in guns, computers, explosives, electronics, etc.

    Gun laws proposed by liberals are not intended to stop crime but to hassle gun owners. Liberal gun laws work only if Criminals start acting like honest citizens and honest citizens start acting like criminals

    How many gang bangers go out and legally by the guns they use in their inner city shootings?

    The ultimate goal is the removal of ALL civilian firearm ownership. By removing the idea of a legal gun owner, it makes it much easier for the police to simply arrest anyone with a gun and thereby get that firearm off the street, until eventually (in their mind anyway) there are no nore guns in private hands at all.

    You DONT think the 'average criminal' is more up on ways to avoid police action than the average citizen? Ever worked with a prison population?

    The simple fact of the matter is that the measures promoted are purely punitive to the manufacturer...NOT the criminal. Its another typical act designed to target legal guns and gun ownership while pretending to actually 'do' something about crime. It has zero impact on the criminal, but then, targeting criminals might be perceived as racist...so...cant have that.

    If the gun factories in New York are smart they will give the governor the finger and move operations immediately and take every associated job with them.

    An unarmed population is a benefit to governments in general.It means the government can get away with anything and the population will be unable to physically oppose them.

    Why would you only want criminals armed? There must be some reason.
    Armed criminals only make up a small minority of the population.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
