Is it Time Yet to Push Back?

My question is….. is it time yet to protest Walmart?

Showing some push back would make national news. Imagine if gun owners across the country coordinated and had a protest at every Walmart in the country at the same day and time.

Crazy NY Assembly-Persons Want You to PROVE You Are NOT Crazy Before You Can Have a Gun

This is thanks to an August 28th article by Eric Wagner.

Assembly Bill A. 1589, introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Thomas Abinati and co-sponsored by Taylor, D’Urzo, Ortiz, Vanel, Jaffee, Paulin, Benedetto, Seawright, Arroyo, and Cook, will require you to take and pass a mental health evaluation, approved by the NYS mental health commissioner, as PROOF you are not crazy, prior to obtaining a gun, even if the gun is given to you through inheritance or as a gift from immediate family. There are no exceptions. It leaves it up to the commissioner of mental health, an unelected regulator, to come up with a evaluation for you to follow to PROVE you can have a gun. The people of New York will have no say in the plan because it will be made up by an agency and not by voted for by the public.

You can look forward to such future distortions of this planned law as, ….anyone who is (insert here…a republican, raises their voice when they are called Fredo, in a militia, a member of the NRA, etc.) must be unstable and not be able to have a gun.

This bill appears to be a virtue signalling pander put forth by left wing democrats who want to look like they are doing something. It’s even a little crazy that this bill was submitted.

How about if you don’t have a criminal record and you are not adjudicated mentally defective, it’s your 2nd amendment right to own a gun to protect yourself and your family!

Mailbox Full!

Lately every time I try to contact Chuck Schumer by phone or by email, I get a message his mailbox is full. This has been going on for months. What a lousy representative.

Actually, I did hear from him when I contacted him about a year ago. I got a form reply letter dated about 6 months after I contacted him.

P.S. Mitch McConnell’s office picked up the phone right away when I called right after calling Schumer. Among other things, I told them to give Schumer a hard time for not being available.

Albany Criminal Arrested and Released 3x This Year on Illegal Gun Charges, Gets Arrested Again

This is what is wrong with the system. Who let him go three times, DA Soares? Do you think this will be referred to the federal court system so he can go away for a federal crime? Of course this criminal gets logged into the gun violence archive (https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/incident/1322828) as a victim of gun violence, thus misleading the public into thinking this was a crime that happened to a law-abiding citizen.

Schumer Wants to Limit Sales of Body Armor to Civilians

Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday proposed new legislation to require the FBI to sign off on body armor sales to civilians.

In New York it’s a felony punishable by up to four years if the culprit is wearing a bulletproof vest while carrying a firearm or committing a violent crime.

Schumer said he’ll submit the new proposed law when congress reconvenes in September.

Please call or email him and tell him not to regulate another way to protect yourself!

New York City knows they have abused Gun Owners and want to escapement judgement.

Starting with racist Sullivan laws at the beginning of the last century to downstate politicians making life difficult for everyone who lives north of Westchester. NYC has gone out of it’s way to abuse gun owners and discourage gun ownership. Now that one of NYC most outrageous dictums is finally being challenged in an unbiased court, they are trying to escape judgement.

Here is the letter NYC sent asking the Supreme Court to ignore their abuse.

Macklin (New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church) and Reverend Charles Burkes (United Ordained Church) are co-hosting a gun buyback event in the Collar City on Thursday, May 30.
