“In recent events, the question of Assault Weapons being legal is now being tested.” So sayeth the About section of the Americans Against Assault Weapons Ban Facebook page, where this photo resides. “This page is devoted to ensure we don’t fall victim to the tyrannical grip of gun control. We support responsible and lawful gun ownership! We do not condone, advocate, support, or participate in . . .
any unlawful actions or ANY acts of violence (especially with firearms) and do not agree with or support anyone who breaks or violates ANY laws, we intend to protest gun control peacefully and in full compliance with the law.”
Yes, well, this. And the fact that New York gun owners are under the gun of said tyrannical gun control (is there any other kind?) thanks to the package of firearms and ammunition magazine registration and sales ban laws known as the SAFE Act.
Make no mistake: just because Empire State gun owners’ plight is not in the news doesn’t mean it won’t be. Like two tectonic plates rubbing up against each other, the pressure between pro and anti-gun forces in New York is growing every day. Unless the Supreme Court intervenes or the State backs down, an earthquake is coming. [h/t DrVino]
