There are few places on the planet where the Second Amendment is under attack more vociferously than it is in New York State.
The reason for this opposition to the Bill of Rights has little to do with the massive expanse of beautiful land that is encapsulated within the borders of The Empire State. Rather, this is due to the population concentration that exists within the ultra-liberal locale known colloquially as The Big Apple.
You see, New York City is a left-leaning monstrosity of natural gerrymandering existing within a state that would otherwise be considered far more conservative than the 5 Boroughs let on.
As such, it has become dishearteningly easy for the entirety of New York State to fall victim to the anti-Second Amendment whims of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Such is the case this week, as a gubernatorial gun grab goes into effect.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed gun confiscation into law for New York on Monday.
The law takes effect 180 days from the date of signing.
Buffalo News reports that the law allows that “family members, school administrators and law enforcement officials can seek to get guns confiscated from people deemed by courts to be an ‘extreme risk’ to themselves or others.”
Of course, there are major concerns that the precise reason that the Second Amendment exists could find its way into these confiscation scams.
To put it plainly, the mainstream media has been smothering the American people with the idea that those who fear a creeping onset of government tyranny are somehow “conspiracy theorists” or “loony”. These worrisome constitutionalists can now be reported to the government for their concerns, only to then lose their right to bear arms – the same passionate belief that got them reported in the first place.
Gun confiscation laws are a trap and an infringement on the Second Amendment, plain and simple.
