Patriotic citizens gathered at gun ranges and gun clubs around the state of New York in solemn protest over the passing of the Safe Act, arguably the biggest infringement of the 2nd Amendment since it was written in the Bill of Rights.

The New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 was enacted on January 15th, 2013. Governor Andrew Cuomo described it as "toughest" gun control law in the United States. Contained inside this unconstitutional law includes: Banning high capacity magazines, even ones that were bought legally. Background checks on all ammunition sales and sellers are required to report all sales to the state. All assault weapons must be registered.  Makes assault weapon features from two to one, essentially making most firearms illegal. Background checks on all sales, including private person to person. Allows police to seize firearms without warrant or court order, only by a reasonable belief the owner might commit a crime in the future.

Here's what our founding fathers had to say about the abridgment of the right to bear arms. 

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive." 
         ---Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).

"Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off their yokes. But were the people to possess the additional advantages of local governments chosen by themselves, who could collect the national will and direct the national force, and of officers appointed out of the militia, by these governments, and attached both to them and to the militia, it may be affirmed with the greatest assurance, that the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned in spite of the legions which surround it. "
         ---James Madison,The Federalist Papers, No. 46.

2nd amendment"To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-
defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws."
         ---John Adams, A Defence of the Constitutions of the United States 475 (1787-1788)
A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."
        --- Thomas Jefferson to Peter Carr, 1785. The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, (Memorial Edition) Lipscomb and Bergh, editors

I stand with these New York Patriots and the founders of this great nation by saying no one will take my right to bear arms away from me. MOLON LABE.

The days of peace officers who interact with the community as neighbors and fellow law-abiding citizens has been dead for sometime. Check points, military hardware and a growing view that every citizen is an evil terrorist or violent criminal, has all but destroyed the way police used to behave. If Mayberry existed today, Barney would have kill numbers in the hundreds and no one would question it.

In Fullerton, California Kelly Thomas a homeless man diagnosed with schizophrenia was brutally beaten to death for nothing more than contempt of cop. His death was confirmed to be directly caused by actions of police officers. In the video Officer Manny Ramos was overheard saying "Now you see my fists?" while putting on latex gloves. Thomas replied "Yeah, what about them?" Officer Ramos replied "They are getting ready to fuck you up."  A short time later, Kelly Thomas was non-responsive face down on the street. Five days later, Kelly Thomas was pronounced dead. Officer Manuel Ramos was charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter; Corporal Jay Cicinelli and Officer Joseph Wolfe were each charged with one count of felony involuntary manslaughter and one count of excessive force. All three pleaded not guilty. A jury would find them not guilty.

When Rodney King, a convicted felon was beaten by numerous L.A.P.D, riots consumed the black neighborhoods around the area. What was the public outcry for Kelly Thomas, a white homeless man? A hundred people with signs and a bunch of keyboard warriors spouting what the would do.

When I was a child, I would play with toy rifles in my front yard and no one would say a word.  In Santa Rosa, California, Sheriffs shot and killed a 13 year old boy for holding a toy rifle. Police only waited 8 seconds before deciding to shoot and kill the boy. Citing Officer safety. 

In Honolulu, an 17 year old boy suffered from severe mental illness was shot by police after the boy's school called the police to help control him.

 Salt Lake City, Utah- Danielle Willard an unarmed woman was shot in the head and killed while in the parking lot of an apartment complex during a narcotics stakeout. Officers claimed she was trying to run them over. Video evidence surfaced and disapproved the officers statements.

Brian Newt Beaird 51, was shot dead by LAPD officers after a car chase. Brian had pulled over and stepped out  of his car with no weapons and was quickly executed by pursuing officers.


Sioux Fall, South Dakota- Jacob Westberg was shot dead on his door step because a concerned citizen reported that he was suicidal. Before the shooting Jacob's brother arrived on the scene and told the police he  could calm his brother but police pushed him aside.

Orlando, Florida- Travis Mcneil was shot to death by officer Orosa when he pulled Mr. Mcneil. Officer Orosa stated he should have followed my commands as justification for the killing.

Dallas, Texas- Police shot an mentally challenged man. Bennett 52, suffering from schizophrenia was shot after police claimed Bennett lunged at them. Video emerged and contradicts the officers statements.

This is not even close to the amount of  police shooting citizens in this country on a weekly basis. In fact, you are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than in a terrorist attack.
