The State of New York has long been a liberal legislator’s dream, and is now rivaling California for the most left-leaning pieces of legislation in the nation.

Of course, the number one liberal priority of the New York democrats has long been the abolishment of the 2nd Amendment, as evidenced by their constant need to infringe on the gun rights of their citizens.

Just weeks ago, New York’s deadline to voluntarily register yourself as a gun owner came and went, with more than 80,000 New Yorkers wholly ignoring the authoritarian legislature in favor of freedom.  The glowing disparity between the legislation and the population in New York is due to one of the nation’s most prominent geopolitical divides.

You see, New York City is a blue dot in an otherwise red state, at least in terms of the snd Amendment, much like Hollywood and Southern California politically dominates a landmass that is far more wilderness than wigs and waves.

This has allowed the left to bank on “resistance” politics to push their archaic agenda in these locales, with New York State legislators introducing a grand total of nine pieces of gun control legislation just this week.

  • “S.3355, by Sen. Liz Krueger, would mandate guns not in use be locked up or otherwise secured under penalty of law. Krueger has had similar legislation turned away in the past.

  • S.4363, by Sen. Roxanne Persaud, would create a taxpayer-funded “Firearm Violence Research Institute” to study “gun violence and develop methods of prevention.” California last year adopted a similar program, which has been slammed by gun rights advocates who say the practice allows for unequal access to public data which could be tailored to further a political agenda.

  • S.5808-A, introduced by Sen. Michael Gianaris, will establish a 10-day waiting period to conduct background checks on gun purchases. The language of the bill also requires firearm dealers to report attempted possibly illegal gun purchases.

  • S.5829, introduced by Sen. Kevin Parker, would make it a Class D felony to have, make or sell a gun that cannot be picked up by a metal detector. A federal ban on undetectable firearms has been in effect for years.

  • S.5922, filed by Sen. Jamaal Bailey, will open up the gun industry to lawsuits if they “negligently market firearms to irresponsible buyers.” New York is home to a number of gun makers including Remington and has over 2,300 federal firearms licensees.

  • S.6902, proposed by Sen. Brad Hoylman, will make it a Class D Felony to possess a bump stock or similar device. Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo has argued that the devices are already illegal in the state.

  • S.7133, introduced by Sen. Brian Kavanagh, would establish Extreme Risk Protection Orders which would allow courts to issue an order to seize guns from individuals reported to be at risk to themselves or others.

  • Kavanagh also debuted S.7072, to add hate crimes to the list of offenses that strip someone of gun rights; as well as  S.7605,  which would require state officials to check the mental health records of an out-of-state resident during gun permit applications.”

This is exactly the sort of wide sweeping attack on the right to bear arms that our forefathers feared during the creation of this incredible nation.

Given the widespread conservative awakening in our nation today, it is unlikely that New York’s liberals will be successful in passing every one of these pieces in the coming year, but their lofty goals belie their malicious intent well enough.  This will certainly not be the last time that these infringements are debated by the democrats of the Big Apple while the people of New York State writhe in anger.
