Injunction May Be Issued on New York Gun Law, Thousands Rally in State’s Capital

The lawsuit against New York’s most recent gun law is making national headlines, and prompting doubts in the state’s Supreme Court.

According to WKTC, a Supreme Court Justice ordered the state to justify the constitutionality of the NY SAFE Act yesterday, which was passed under the guidance of Governor Andrew Cuomo last month. The state has until Friday, April 29 to respond to the order or an injunction will be placed on the SAFE Act. It could prove to be a monumental victory for the gun owners’ associations behind the lawsuit.

The New York Rifle and Pistol Association spearheaded the claim–along with online forum and others–soon after the act was passed. On Wednesday a second lawsuit was filed against the SAFE Act on behalf of a Chautaugua County business, reports WKBW. Both claims are represented by attorney James Tresmond.

Thousands of gun rights supporters gathered in downtown Albany on Thursday to call for the law’s repeal. According to the Associated Press, masses of protesters gathered around the capitol building and surrounding areas, with 5,000 sign-wielding activists in one park alone.

    Every gun owner in every state needs to stand up against these repressive laws. The ten round magazine or the case of New York seven rounds will cost more lives and save none. Watch the video that shows a person with three ten round magazine can fire as fast and accurately as a person with a thirty round magazine. This is nothing more than an attempt to get camels nose under the tent just like they did in Australia and England and instead of stopping crime it has only made it worse.

      You forgot to mention that idiot New York City has for a mayor. A guy named Blumberg who thinks you ought to eat and drink only the things that he feels is good for you.

    These laws are nothing but a means to control and destroy everything our forefathers and founders created, fought and died for. Liberal government cares nothing about rights, only about control. Personal responsibility is a vulgar word to be removed from the language. Blaming of inanimate objects is the LAW of the day. These laws are useless and solve no problems, instead they create a larger victim class, which our government uses to create ever more repressive laws.

    The greatest question of all is when will liberals (Socialist Democrats) address the real problems. Best yet, what about looking for real solutions, not excuses. One knows they are incapable of doing this. For a Socialist Democrat solving problems is antithetical to their philosophy Everyone must be a victim. They cannot survive without a victim class. In their warped version of the world there are only two classes the elite (Socialist Democrat) and pee-on’s (victims).

    No one in the wrong can prevail against someone in the right who won’t back down.

    I’ve recently joined the NRA, the GOA, and am an active voice in my community. I will not go quietly into the good night. I will take a stand, I will fire back, I will defend the Constitution of the United States of America. I took such an oath in 1978, when I joined the Navy, and it came with no expiration date.

      I took mine in 1970 and yes it has not expired. Join the Oathkeeper’s organization as we work towards getting our local Sheriff’s and town/county boards on board to fight for our right’s as freemen. The greater the number’s the larger the effect we can have.

    I was there for the Rally and i am pleased to see it is going to get some real response this time. Yes the idiotic 10rd magazine that new york kept by virtue of it’s own version of the clinton mag/gun ban of 94. We need to be allowed whatever size magazine we wish to have whether it be a 15 rd or a 100 rd as long as we are law abiding citizen’s we should be as our constitution states “the Right to keep and Bear Arms shall Not be Infringed”. We have been infringed upon unjustly by our State government since 1994 and all stats show that so called assault rifles regardless of magazine size get used in less than .001 percent of crime! The Federal and State Government’s are in fear of the People and therefore want us disarmed so we are easier to control. I for one will not Comply with such an unlawful act.

    All gun laws that restrict WE THE PEOPLE from owning any type of weapon that our servants in our government have is illegal because the constitution states this in the second amendment, the federist papers and in plenty of other documents that were written to back up our natural rights. Arrest all that try to impose these illegal rules upon WE THE PEOPLE. Gun control is not about gun control it is about people control, therefore TYRANNY.
