The Agenda:

Here it is. This is the video where I [Republican NY State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin] was asked to keep the Democrat proposals for the NY SAFE Act away from the public. This list was given to me by a colleague and it is not confidential.

This bill was an attack on the 2nd amendment and the Democrats clearly wanted to dismantle the work of the Founding Fathers. None of these amendments were included in the final bill thanks to us fighting back. I will not stand silent while these unpatriotic proposals are pathetically thrown at us a 11 o’clock at night:

1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
2. Confiscation o ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons

    There needs to be micro-stamping of these politicians. Better yet a big scarlet letter “T” for tyrannical gun grabber.

    … not one of which would have the least friggin’ impact on safety, crime, or availability to criminals.

    If they would just make murder illegal, it would just go away.

    Sent today to both “My” US Senators,

    Dear Senator,

    Please do not change any Senate rules regarding the filibuster, The filibuster is part of the checks and balances we need to leave alone. One day the political tides will turn and you will glad to have it.

    For over 100 years people in my family have owned all types of guns and committed no crime whatsoever. I will not register any of my firearms even if you pass legislation demanding I do so. Do not pass legislation I will be forced to ignore. Shall not be infringed means just that. Let me remind you of your oath of office, swearing to defend the Constitution.

    I am a law abiding American citizen. Do not restrict or infringe upon my rights to own firearms. I am not the problem. The type of gun is not the problem. Enforce existing laws.
    No registry of gun owners is acceptable to me, or the vast majority of American firearms owners.
