Cuomo: Gun Confiscation and Forced Buy-back an Option

December 21, 2012

New York governor Andrew Cuomo says the state of New York is serious about gun confiscation. The Democrat and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development told an Albany radio station he plans to propose a package of draconian legislation during his Sate of the State address next month.

Cuomo must not like his own

Cuomo must not like his own state police. Because if confiscation begins, I'd expect a whole lot of them to either quit or be shot while confiscating.

Ebbe the Younger , the Mother

Ebbe the Younger , the Mother Superior, of the monastery of Coldingham. In 867 AD, Viking pirates landed in Scotland. When news of the raid reached Saint Ebba, she gathered her nuns together and urged them to disfigure themselves, so that they might be unappealing to the Vikings. In this way, they hoped to protect their chastity. She demonstrated this by cutting off her nose and upper lip, and the nuns proceeded to do the same. The Viking raiders were so disgusted that they burned the entire building to the ground. This is the most famous story to define the phrase cutting off the nose to sprite the face.

If lady liberty was a real women she might have Rhinophyma nose from drinking the spiked cool-aid liberals have been force feeding her for the past few decades. She to would be tempted to cut off her nose to spite her face in preperation of the forthcoming liberal pillaging of American freedoms.

I have yet to hear a law

I have yet to hear a law enforcement officer or veteran who does not feel this way. As they say, "some of those country boys know how to shoot." I don't think I can add anything here that could make this any clearer.

Ebben Raves is a veteran, constitutional activist, and speaker who teaches American history and has been a guest on several talk radio shows.

Dangerous Old Men
By Ebben Raves

Everybody knows a Walt Kowalski. He is the grizzled Korean War veteran Clint Eastwood played in the movie Gran Torino. A man who spends his days sitting on the porch, keeping his house and yard immaculate, satisfied to drink his cheap beer while watching his neighborhood and country go to hell around him. He is an anachronism, a dinosaur -- part of the old America where you worked hard, took pride in your work and where you lived, and fought for your country and what it stood for when called upon. Armed with his M1 Garand rifle and 1911 .45 pistol he brought back from the war, he put new meaning in "Get off my lawn."

(Warning: spoilers follow.)

As anyone who has seen the movie knows, Kowalski is recently widowed and terminally ill. He does not have much to live for until he befriends his young Hmong neighbors. After teaching them what honor and self-reliance are, he eventually gives his life for them.

Fewer have heard of Ben Mitchell, who features in the book Enemies Foreign and Domestic. Mitchell is a former Vietnam-era Green Beret operative who paralyzes Washington, D.C. by crippling the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. (Again, spoilers follow.) Though not terminally ill -- yet -- Mitchell does not see much of a future ahead of him and is angered about his friend being set up by the federal government during an unconstitutional gun-grab passed in the heat of the moment by legislators after a tragedy. Before losing his life, however, he manages to take out most of the federal law enforcement team sent against him.

Both of these men are fictional characters, but is it just fantasy? Let us look back at Samuel Whittemore. Samuel was an old man -- seventy-eight years old, to be exact -- on April 19, 1775. After many years of service bearing arms for the British Crown, surely he was too old to fight, and his wife even told him so. On that fateful morning, though, he gathered up his musket, two pistols, and a cavalry saber that he acquired from a French officer who "died suddenly" and took his place to meet the British Regulars in Menotomy. When it was over, the British thought they were fired upon by a whole company and sent the same to subdue him. After dispatching some British Regulars by emptying his musket and pistols and drawing his sword, he had half his face shot off and was bayoneted thirteen times and left for dead. Samuel did indeed die -- ten years later.

There is also David Lamson, a mulatto voted by his peers to take charge of a group of gray-haired old men. On that same morning, they surprised one of General Percy's supply columns, asking them to surrender. Seeing just a few old men, the British refused, leading to Lamson's men shooting the officer, the sergeant, and the horses in their traces. The remaining grenadiers fled, finally surrendering to old Mother Batherick after throwing their arms away. Hearing about this, a British paper printed, "If one old Yankee woman can take six grenadiers, how many soldiers will it require to conquer America?"

There are over twenty-five million veterans in the United States -- among them many Walt Kowalskis -- and most of them are gun owners. Some of them remember the horrors of the concentration camps and of communism. Others are from the Vietnam era and remember what awaited them when they came home. They see John Kerry, the same man who threw his medals over the White House fence and was photographed with Jane Fonda and the North Vietnamese, nominated as secretary of state. They remember. ObamaCare, where you get painkillers instead of treatment because you are old? They have heard this. They have been spat at and vilified before, and now, with time running out for them, and the America that they knew seemingly fading away, many will say, "At one time, I was asked to write a check to my country for up to and including my life. Do I need to do it again?"

You would be surprised at what you can overhear at the VFW, or even the "early bird dinner," for that matter. Thanks to the "War on Terror," there are also many younger combat veterans, many from a lineage of soldiers. They know that old people can be stubborn, and "the government threw grandpa in jail because he didn't turn in his guns" will not go over well.

As an older friend of mine whom I see at Denny's on occasion tells me,
"I'm just sayin'."

ALBANY — Gov.Andrew M. Cuomo

ALBANY — Gov.Andrew M. Cuomo and lawmakers agreed on Monday to a broad package of changes to gun laws that would expand the state’s ban on assault weapons and would include new measures to keep guns away from people with mental illnesses.

New York State is a perfect

New York State is a perfect example that if you allow the state to ban, license owners and weapons as a compromise, it's a first step, they will be back to take more.

They will take the tragedy in another state and apply it to you. Look at this new NY law, it is just punitive, meant to make it harder for legal gunowners, while providing harsher penalties for people who usually kill themselves as part of their insane act, what a deterrent.

Maybe they can electrocute, hang, draw and quarter the dead bodies of those who do mass shootings. Or bury them at sea.

If these legislators weren't so dangerous we could just call them idiots.

Quite a bold promise from

Quite a bold promise from taking a magazine capacity from ten to seven, for one part of it. One has to wonder why they picked seven?

One reason pops to mind Garands take eight round clips, now 1911s take seven mags, is it a piecemeal future disarmament. Placate some, divide and conquer others, Of course it is.

Why didn't they just pick five which is the usual "hunting" capacity held by many states, would not five cut the number of deaths by half, in their mindset? were there gun owners in the legislature that own 1911s?

And if the garand is not controlled now under this new law, will that be an easy step in the future, should garands come under the microscope?

Now of course the immediate impact of the Seven requirement is that all tens must be disposed of or converted, if that is allowed.

It is quite a web that the sobs weave and don't think they don't know what they are doing.

Mike, everyone knows it's not

Mike, everyone knows it's not the first 7 bullets that are evil, it's the 8th, 9th, and subsequent bullets in the same magazine that do the killing.

I thought everyone knew this.

I certainly hope that ALL

I certainly hope that ALL firearms manufacturers refuse to sell, service, or repair any and all firearms owned by any government agency or employee in New York State. That is what Barrett did in California. That munitions suppliers and manufacturers refuse to sell ammunition, components, reloading equipment. That optics manufacturers also join ranks in refusing to sell ANY type of optical device which may be attached to a firearm to any governmental agency or employee. That shipping companies refuse to carry such items into the state from any source whatsoever. That clothing manufacturers refuse to provide uniforms to these destroyers of the common good. That communications suppliers refuse service of their products now and in the future. These include telephone, internet, wireless(radio) telegraph,telex, Facsimile suppliers and computer software dealers. Any and all means necessary to convey disfavor and discord within the police community in order to convince them that this is not a wise idea. Then, call on the police and government agencies for all manner of complaints requiring a response. Work the hell right out of them to the point that they scream that enough is enough. Or simply park your automobile in the highway and snarl traffic to the point of traffic stoppage into the city of New York and prevent the necessary supplies from entering the inner city. Passive resistance as per Ghandi or MLK. Less passive resistance may be considered at a later date. Hopefully that will not be required.
