    Not too many years back, a congressman introduced a bill to ban the Second Amendmant. Where was he from? The Republic of New York, a sovereign state. What do you expect from this socialist state, where the citizen constantly elect politicians such as Schumer and Clinton?

    What the republic of New York needs is a healthy Concealed Carry Permit law, and then you would see a significant decrease in crime.

    This foolish law does nothing to keep what they called “illegal” guns out of the hands of criminals.

    Isn’t it interesting how the First Amendment is being used in an attempt to take away the Second? What these “Commie
    Bastards” as before named in another post, don’t realize is that it is the Second that keeps the First from being taken away.

    NYC has had one of the toughest laws for illegal possession of a firearm on its books for over 40 years.It’s the Sullivan law.It is never used! Why not? Probably 99% of crimes committed with a firearm are with illegal weapons, yet the average citizen in NYC with a clean record cannot
    obtain the needed gun permit for possession.One result is a small storeowner keeps and uses an unlicensed firearm, uses it for self defense when held up, and ends up in jail, with few exceptions. Let’s get the guns on the street in the hands of the honest citizens who want carry licenses and tyhen let’s see how eager these holdup guys are after a few get popped.

    The real criminals here are the Politicans. Who do they think they are kidding? The average person can not own a gun in NYC. The same is true in DC but you know damn well these two faced deceptive SOB’s have body guards armed to the teeth with the same weapons they make illagel for the law abiding citizen to have and then they pay for it with our taxs.

    You’ve all missed the boat on this one. Read carefully; they aren’t really talking about keeping guns from being sold to criminals.

    They are talking about creating a slam-dunk “right” for the victim of a gun crime to get paid by the seller and/or manufacturer. Soon, no one will be able to get insurance as a dealer, and no manufacturer will be willing to sell to NYC dealers. This is the agenda of Handgun Control, Inc.

    What you end up with is back-door legislation to outlaw the right to legally sell handguns in NYC. What will happen is that guns shops across the city/state lines will see a big boom in their business, and no politician will be able to figure out, much less admit, why the number of gun crimes hasn’t been reduced.

    It is really sad when we attack manufacturers and not the crimal element and now government is the “Deep Pocket Guy” we have all been watching out for. This will cost the victim and the City of New York millions of dollars to investigate and 99% of the case will go no where as to who violated the code of conduct.

    I agree with John, this law passes the responsibility from the guy who commits the crime to the dealer and/or the manufacturer. Also, who interprets this “code of Conduct”, Handgun Control, some anti-gun judge or the NRA…….I bet it wouldn’t be the NRA. Just more political “bull-****”

    Gun Laws solve nothing. By simple definition criminals DO NOT obey laws. So who gets caught short? Only the law abiding citizen.

    this is the only area that a legal busines is told how many of their product can be sold at a time or in a time frame.I would think this law would be illegal as is restricts free commerce for both the mfg. and dealer.I know of no other business that would be discriminated against like this by our goverment.

    Bob -what I was trying to get across is – what is the difference between saying lets only allow a bar to sell you only one drink – you may do someone harm- and only allowing a drink mfg to sell is product to a bar that can prove it has less than 20 people drink to much in the last five years . Or go to the car mfg and say this car is too fast -it may kill someone – lets limit the dealer to a set number and the mfg. to a fine if too many people have a acct. in a set time period. I could go on and on with examples . City counsils pass city ordances and do not leglate law.
