The Mental Recession: Democrat: Please Don't Release That Document Showing We Actually Do Want to Confiscate Guns Late last night, New York Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, one of the few Republicans with a strong enough spine to stand up to the new gun legislation, released the following statement on his Facebook page. McLaughlin wrote: "Here it is. This is the video where I was asked to keep the Democrat proposals for the NY SAFE Act away from the public. This list was given to me by a colleague and it is not confidential." The list of proposals below were actually cut from the final bill, and the democrats who sponsored these items don't want the people to know what ridiculous items were whittled away (its all relative..the entire "Safe Act" bill is ridiculous). But this bill could have been a LOT worse! Items deleted from the "Safe Act" bill 1. Confiscation of "assault weapons" 2. Confiscation of ten round clips 3. Statewide database for ALL Guns 4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder's information to be released to the public 5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as "assault weapons 6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines 7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines 8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month 9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners 10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years 11. State issued pistol permits 12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State 13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers 14. Mandatory locking of guns at home 15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons Take this as a warning as to what anti-2nd Amendment legislators around here would like to propose.
