Cohoes, NY Pistol Permit Police Tell Applicants to Reactivate Facebook Accounts – The Truth About Guns

The police actually reach out to your FB friends and ask about your character, some of whom you may not have spoken to since high school or even grade school. This is on top of the character references you include in your application. I have a friend who applied and told them that he no longer had his FB account and that he deactivated it a few weeks prior. They insisted that he reactivate it so they could go through his contacts, photos, and prior posts. It’s not fun in upstate N.Y. People need to know how restrictive law enforcement is on our 2nd amendment rights.

This is what anti-gunnners call “commons-sense.” To them, gun-ownership, let alone carrying a gun, is a privilege rather than a right. This is getting to be good reason to move away from Facebook and most other social media or at the very least, be very careful of what you post and with whom you associate. Permits aside, make no mistake, if you’re ever involved in a use of force incident, anything you’ve done or said online in public forums like FB may be discoverable and used against you. Another reason we are not intolerant of racist posts on our page or pages advocating/inciting unlawful violence.

You’re kidding…Remington went to Alabama because it’s more gun friendly than New York?

Alabama’s pro-2nd Amendment political climate is without a doubt an attractor to the Remington company

You’d don’t say? What amazes me is that it is only NOW that these people get it. But it is only the money. The tax revenue that they have lost that concerns them. Not the erosion of freedom. Politicians are ultimately all the same and flushed like toilets for the same reasons.

Long Island Man Facing Manslaughter Charge For Shooting, Killing Alleged Armed Burglar « CBS New York

“The DA’s office indicated they didn’t think it was necessarily clear that a shot was fired, but you can actually see a flash and see the gun pull back after he pulls the trigger,” said defense attorney Anthony Rutkowski.

[sarcasm] Way to go New York! Keeping citizens in line by prosecuting them for self-defense. [/sarcasm] What’s really interesting is these folks have video of break-in that shows what looks like a gun shot from the suspect’s gun. But, prosecutors maintain that they didn’t find any bullets and they think the guy was shot while running away. I am glad I live in Texas.

News on the SAFE Act from a John Farnam associate out of NY…

5 Mar 14

Developments in NY, from friends there:

“NYC officials will not renew licenses for citizens who have certain guns which were previously, duly registered, and were supposedly ‘grandfathered-in,’ but are now ‘not approved’ for possession by private citizens.

So, the logical progression from registration, to confiscation, is now plain to see. However, the leftist media is taking great pains to conceal it from the public.

At a NY State sponsored ‘public information’ secession on NY’s ‘SAFE’ Act, conducted late last year in Clarence, NY, police were seen in the parking lot, copying down license plate numbers of attendees!

Who attended reported that the ‘informational session’ was a fraud! State officials there refused to answer any questions and provided no clarification. Attendees came away confused as to why such a secession was even held in the first place.

However, there was no confusion on the part of state officials. They got the information they wanted!

It is an old, Communist trick: Hold a phoney ‘public information session’ solely to find out who the ‘trouble makers’ are.

Communists and ‘Democrats’ in NY are getting hard to tell apart!

Associates defend New York SAFE Act advocate who had gun in school…

He was a well-known face in the movement for the SAFE Act, the state law that made carrying a gun on school property a felony. He was also a familiar presence in the hallways of the city’s Harvey Austin Elementary School, where he worked in the after-school program and mentored students.

No one imagined that on Thursday he would show up at the school in possession of a gun, touching off an hours-long lockdown, search and ultimately his arrest on two felony charges. via Associates defend man who had gun in school – City & Region – The Buffalo News.

 

Dwayne Ferguson along with his Buffalow Peacemakers and MADDADs were all huge advocate of New York’s SAFE Act. Guns are evil they said. Guns are bad they said. No one should have them they said. We need to get them off our streets and out of our schools they said. And now, Dwayne Ferguson is face two felony counts under New York’s SAFE Act, a law he championed, for bringing a gun into a school. I love it when gun control advocates are exposed for the hypocrites they are. The laws are for thee and not for me!
