New York State Senator Michael Gianaris [above] is introducing new gun control legislation for the Empire State. His bill would limit New York gun buyers to one handgun purchase per month, impose a ten-day waiting period on all firearms sales and require that gun and ammo buyers register all purchases with the state (including gun shows and what are currently called private sales). Gianaris’ meshugga mishegos joins the gun grabbers’ queue; the New York Senate is set to consider other gun control bills . . .
Also on the card: banning “assault weapons,” mandating microstamping and “child-safety locks.”
“New York has more than our fair share of gun violence,” Gianaris told nydailynews.com. “There’s no reason why we shouldn’t be leading the nation in providing for the safety of our citizens.”
Double negative and misguided as Gianaris
may be is, gun rights advocates can take comfort in the fact that pro-gun Republicans control the New York State Senate. Chances are they will shoot these bills down with extreme prejudice. Still, scary stuff.
