90% of N.Y. gun owners refuse to register guns

Despite the best efforts, or at least the latest efforts of the anti-gun folks, even New Yorkers are defying the gun-grabbing freaks. Via: Conservative Tribune BREAKING: 90% of NY Gun Owners Refuse to Register Guns Not unlike what’s happening in Connecticut right now, New York gun owners are refusing registration, blatantly defying the state’s unconstitutional new gun control law, called the NY SAFE Act. We recently reported how gun owners in New York burned at least a thousand registration forms in defiance of the law.  We also noted that police are refusing to enforce it, as sheriffs in other states […]

New York Gun Owners Burn Their Registration Forms

In a second state, gun owners are refusing to comply with newly passed gun laws.  Add New York to the list with Connecticut, as gun owners there are burning their gun registration forms… With an April 15 deadline to register their weapons looming, New York’s Second Amendment advocates aren’t going down without a fight. And they’re already looking ahead to elections in November. Hundreds of gun owners and their supporters turned out Sunday in the upstate New York town of Wilton for a protest aimed undermining the Democrat-championed Secure Ammunitions and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act to the point it “collapses […]

Middle School Girls in NY Forced to Ask for Lesbian Kisses as Part of ‘Anti-Bullying’ Lesson

Of course, for the left, “anti-bullying” lessons would involve bullying children-it’s too predictable.  In a NY Middle School, 13-14 year-olds were forced to ask one another for a lesbian kiss, because that somehow prevents bullying.  Christian News, via Gateway Pundit has more… A recent anti-bullying presentation at a middle school in New York that focused on homosexuality and gender identity has angered parents after their daughters have come home to tell them they were forced to ask another girl for a kiss. According to reports, the session occurred last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, New York, […]

#ObamaCare Damage: 100,000 to Lose Insurance in NY; 800,000 on NJ Impacted

I bet there are a bunch of Obama voters out there wondering what happened with #ObamaCare.  They’re getting cancellation notices for the plans that Obama told them they could keep.  Not only that, most are being told that they can get another plan, with a higher deductible, and a far higher premium.  Of course, they could have read here, for years, about what was going to happen, but they watched the MSM instead.  So, now they are going to pay for their vote.  Jammie Wearing Fool has more… You voted for him, so now you must be punished. If you […]

Racial Violence Daily Report: Man Calls Bus Passenger ‘Cracker,’ Inflicts Facial Fractures

Our Daily Racial Violence Story comes from NY, where  a bus passenger dared to be white.  The NY Post has more… An attacker pummeled a bus passenger so hard he smashed the bones in his face after calling the victim a “cracker” in Manhattan – marking the second time in two days that people appeared to be randomly targeted in racial tirades against white people, authorities said. In the latest incident, the suspect passed a 31-year-old rider on the M60 bus riding through Harlem, on West 127th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, around 2:45 p.m., Friday, when he […]

NY Based Gun Company,Kahr Firearms, Taking Business, Jobs, and Tax Revenue to Pennsylvania

Gun grabbers are costing their state’s jobs and tax revenue.  Political Outcast has the story… Shortly after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed their anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment laws into effect, Texas State Attorney General Greg Abbott ran a series of ads in New York inviting people and businesses to move to gun friendly Texas. I never heard if any New Yorkers took him up on his invite, but thought it was a pretty good idea. Whether prompted by Abbott’s invite or the examples from Colorado, at least one New York based firearms company has announced that they are leaving […]

Child Talks About Squirt Gun at School? Consfiscate Father’s Guns!

Gun grabbers will go to any length to take as many guns from as many people as possible.  The more people that are disarmed or criminalized, the better.  So, with that in mind, it doesn’t particularly matter how asinine the reasoning, as long as the job gets done, it’s all good. Even if they have to justify it with a squirt gun, it’s all good!    So, when this happened in NY state, I was not surprised… Via The Blaze: A New York father has had his firearms all but confiscated after the Suffolk County Pistol License Bureau suspended his pistol […]

Law Abididng Citizens Preparing to Resist Gun Laws

Of course, once the laws pass, the law abiding with be, shall we say; “reclassified?”  In NY State, citizens are stating their displeasure with the state’s efforts to disarm them. In other words., they are preparing to resist gun laws.  Take a look at this video from a public meeting last week… In the end, government at all levels can pass gun laws.  The question is, how many people are they willing to kill or imprison to enforce them?  Some will not follow unjust laws.  What are your thoughts?  

Democrats Want EBT Cards Used at Casinos, Strip Clubs, and Bars

If the Democrats aren’t trying to encourage welfare fraud, why are they trying to stop taxpayers, from using government EBT cards at Casinos, liquor stores, and so forth?  Moonbattery has more… That’s why they are making sure that EBT cards continue to be used to make cash withdrawals of other people’s money at casinos, bars, porn shops, and strip clubs, even as the nation staggers toward bankruptcy. Democratic [New York] state lawmakers, led by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, have blocked welfare-reform legislation that would end “sinful spending” by preventing people receiving government benefits from withdrawing taxpayer-funded cash at jiggle and […]

Cigarette Taxes Create More Failure? NY and Chicago Suffer From Liberalism

It’s common sense, really.  If you tax something highly, human nature dictates that people will go out of their way to avoid the tax.  Liberals, however, seems to have missed that, because they continue to tax and tax.  Then, they are completely shocked and surprised when people do what they have always done.  Hot Air has the latest… First, my own home stomping grounds of New York, which has been seeking a way to stave off total fiscal collapse by jacking up one of the highest tobacco tax rates in the nation. How’s that working out for ya? ALBANY – […]

New York Cigarette Tax Fails to Bring in Projected Revenues: Anyone Surprised?

One thing that statists miss is that taxes change human behavior.  When something is taxed to the extent that it becomes less affordable, people will either stop using the taxed item, use less of the taxed item, or obtain the item by other means.  For the latest, NY State is lamenting the fact that their cigarette tax revenue is far below expectations… The Empire State is struggling to bring in additional tax revenue it projected it would gain from efforts to stop smokers from buying untaxed  cigarettes on Indian Reservations, reports the New York Post: The state’s tax collectors were recently […]

Labor Union Sabotages Blizzard Cleanup? A New Born Dies

We’ve covered many activities of organized labor; the violence, intimidation, general thuggery, and so on.  Now, there are reports that sanitation workers in NYC intentionally delayed the cleanup efforts during the recent blizzard (global warming-sorry, couldn’t resist!).  Here are the details from the NY Post… “They sent a message to the rest of the city that these particular labor issues are more important,” said City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Queens), who was visited yesterday by a group of guilt-ridden sanitation workers who confessed the shameless plot. Halloran said he met with three plow workers from the Sanitation Department — and two […]

Nanny State Alert: NY City Wants to Ban Soda for Food Stamp Recipients

It’s been said many times that government assistance comes with strings attached-that when you let the government do something for you, you cede control to them. That has been accelerating under our newest set of would-be “progressive” overlords, and here is the latest example. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg sought federal permission on Wednesday to bar New York City’s 1.7 million recipients of food stamps from using them to buy soda or other sugared drinks. Scoff if you will, but if they can tell people that they can’t buy soda, what can’t they tell people? So Obama voters, how ya likin […]

Cash-strapped New York State Finds Novel Ways of Raising Cash

Customers in a popular Manhattan deli were surprised to find that if they wanted their bagel sliced it now cost 9 cents extra.  Also, if bagels are eaten in the store, even if not touched by a knife or sliced, they cost extra. Running a 14 billion dollar deficit and with a lame-duck governor feuding with both houses of the state legislature the state Department of Taxation and Finance has started enforcing obscure laws such as the one just mentioned. “We have to come up with cash somehow” said Jamie Woodward, acting Commissioner of the Department.  “I know New Yorkers […]

Call the WAAAAMBULANCE!

I wonder if this is covered by ObamaCare? Want an interesting contrast between Demonrats and Republicans?  Still thinking there’s no difference between the “Demicans and Republicrats?”  Let’s take a look at the the NY State Senate.  Recently, as described here in Redstate, two Demonrats defected to the Republicans, allegedly over pending gay marriage legislation.  These defections threw the balance of power over to the Republicans. Now friends, let’s take a moment to review what happened a few  weeks ago in the US Senate.  Arlen Sphincter defected to the Demonrats.  Our response? “Don’t let the door hit you on the *ss […]
