NY City Council - Gun Warning Labels

Postby Lynyrd » Fri Nov 03, 2017 8:01 am

Two or three thoughts come to mind. 1st, you can't make this stuff up. 2nd, truth is stranger than fiction.

http://nypost.com/2017/10/30/gun-permits-may-soon-come-with-a-health-warning/

The council woman wants the NYPD to hand out warning labels like the ones on cigarette packs.

It sounds like there is another liberal starting a career by citing statistics but disregarding the fact that criminals don't pay attention to laws.
It would be nice to read what their idea about reducing crime is instead of criminalizing the law abiding population.

This gives me an idea. Can we get the Texas AG to send pamphlets to all 30.06 posted businesses about the danger of not allowing the legal carry of firearms in their businesses?

I guess it would require a petition to get this started. Another idea would be to eliminate 30.06 and .07 as well as the 51% signs. Simplifying regulations and applying common sense laws could be a) a first step to reduce crime and b) politicians and advocates would have more time to focus on the real criminals vs. dealing with signage violations.

P. S. what happened to the effort removing the tax stamp for supressors?

In fairness, I don't think wed expend all that many resources on signage violations since folks have a hard time citing any actual prosecutions. But I agree that 30.06 and 30.07 signs should not have force of law. Business owners should be able to ask anyone they want to leave. If that person refuses, they should be able to have the police assist them in removing that person. Simple. Easy. And no one's rights get infringed in any way.

"WARNING! potential New York City firearm owner: The Supreme Court has affirmed that it is not the duty of the NYC Police Department to prevent criminals from robbing or murdering you or otherwise protecting you from any criminal element. The Constitution of the United States Second Amendment protects your right to bear arms and the Supreme Court has also affirmed that it is your right to own a firearm for self defense.
However, as elected politicians, we know better and feel that our belief system that restricts your rights to self defense is more important thus we must take every action we deem necessary to keep firearms out of the hands of the citizens who elect us to office.
Do not be alarmed, we only have your safety and the security of the city as our highest priorities.
Thank you and we look forward to your continued votes in the future."
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle. Psalm 144:1
Si vis pacem, para bellum

They should hand out warning pamphlets when you get a drivers license. And have you ever rented a car and driven in NY city? The should definitely pass out warning labels with car rentals.
Do what you say you're gonna do.

Will the redcoats have to put them on their own guns?
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Tidbits from the USSC opinion on Castle Rock vs. Gonzales would make for a great pamphlet, but the audio of Ms. Gonzales pleading in vain for police to save her children is far more memorable.

The saying that "when seconds count, the police are only minutes away" is somewhat misleading because they are not obligated to protect you even if they are miraculously present as you are attacked.

Maybe, the city posts no gun signs all over the city, there will no more gun deaths. It just Liberal common sense!
