Despite the failure of the NY SAFE Act to prevent any violent crimes in New York in the two years since it has been passed, the practical inability to implement parts of it, and an utter refusal of some law enforcement agencies to enforce it, New York’s rabid anti-gun Democrats are calling it a success, and demandig more gun control laws in it’s wake.
They never quit.
Despite 2013 passage of the SAFE Act, gun control advocates in the Legislature on Monday said they believe there is still a lot to do when it comes to weapons safety.
“Passing the SAFE Act was an achievement. Most politicians in New York state feel we have conquered gun violence,” Long Island Democratic Assemblywoman Michelle Schimelsaid at a rally sponsored by New Yorkers Against Gun Violence.
Schimel, along with fellow Democratic Assembly members Brian Kavanagh,Amy Paulin and Patrica Fahy, spoke to a group of students who were visiting the Capitol to push for additional gun control measures.
Some of the proposals, such as a plan to mandate microstamping, which would put etched identifiers in shell casings, have been around for a while. Others, such as proposal put forth by Kavanagh and Democratic Sen. Daniel Squadron to treat .50 caliber guns as assault weapons, have recently been offered up but haven’t gotten out of committee in the Senate.
