    So leaders that know what is right have to fix it?
    It's a bit hard to reverse these things in a state like NY or for that matter anywhere.

    What church do these leaders attend?
    What in the hell? Who cares?

    Sorry. I'm a retired design engineer. I found when things were not laid out in some detail people had many different perceptions of what we were going to do. I have a hard time assuming. Not in particular, e.g. Cuomo, but just in general. It's a Constitutional right we are talking about.

    While I obviously oppose the concept on Constitutional grounds, I would indeed like to see it, should it occur. Perhaps a live internet feed from each BATFE squad, as they seek enforce such a law, would be educational indeed. Seeing federal agents kicking down doors and "defending themselves" against angry citizens, clinging to their guns and bibles, would show the nation just what Obama, et al, are really all about.

    The right to bear arms is anything but self explanatory. What arms? Where? Who?

    LOL! Did you hear about this? What a dumb ass, huh?

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- A troubling oversight has been found within New York State's sweeping new gun laws.

    The ban on having high-capacity magazines, as it's written, would also include law enforcement officers.

    Magazines with more than seven rounds will be illegal under the new law when that part takes effect in March.

    As the statute is currently written, it does not exempt law enforcement officers.
    Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity.

    All I could do is just give myself a big palm in the face when I found out about this. It just points out the idiocy that we are surrounded by in this country.

    It's unbelievable that the "people in charge" just don't seem to know what they are doing or talking about. They sign bills into law that they don't even understand or read. They are worse than most children.

    My greatest concern regarding the discussion about gun control is that it there seems to be some support for requiring gun owners turn over certain types of weapons that they currently legally own. I'm curious how extensive this support is. I'm not asking if you think such measures will ever be taken. I also realize there's another poll similar to this one, but that one's in terms of what you're willing to accept. I'd like to know, if you could have it your way, would you want to see confiscation or requiring that gun owners turn over "assault" (whatever that means to you) and/or military style weapons?

    (hat tip to the member who gave me the idea for this poll, you know who you are )
    As soon as you attempt to confiscate guns, you prove why they are necessary.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
