BigDog you are confusing laws that keep guns out of the hands of people that should not have them with some misguided preconception that we need to disarm the populace. If you have no criminal record and are competent you are quite entitled to your guns within the framework of the law.

"within the framework of the law."

You mean like the law just signed by that judas Cuomo that bans all whole bunch of guns?

C'mon Toad. You know darn well that as soon as the Brady Bunch eliminates semi-auto black guns, they will set their sights on big, bad, scoped "sniper rifles" aka a bolt-action, center fire cartridge rifle used to hunt deer. I can already write the script about how such rifles fire supersonic rounds that defeat soft body armor aka cop killer bullets. You'll want "safer" ammunition. You'll want weapons stored at gun clubs and signed out to owners. You'll want all sorts of incremental "common sense" laws until private citizens have no access to firearms.

I've already heard the statists in the MSM refer to such rifles as "sniper rifles." If only I could figure out a way to collect on a bet....

That is, until another event occurs. Then the call will go out to have a gun turn in program, like they did in Australia. Since the guns will be registered, the government will know where to go get them if they are not turned in. Are you saying that this will never happen? If so, you better go study up on the semiauto situation in California. Registration always leads to confiscation. There is no other logical reason to register all firearms. Criminals don't register them. Some normally law abiding folks will also refuse to register them, knowing that confiscation is not too far off, once registration is enacted. Dianne Feinstein is on record as favoring confiscation. We know Obama/Biden/Schumer/Cuomo/et al would go for confiscation as soon

... as they figured that they could pull it off, politically. They are all very anti gun.

Statements they've made in the past. Positions they've held. Gun control groups they've been associated whose stated goals are the eventual disarmament of American civilians.

If they didn't believe it, why are they trying it?

Obviously you are not a very good shot if you need more than seven bullets.

I'm sure you are able to hit each and every thing you aim at, under duress, in the dark, with someone attacking you. You are really a putz. What if there are several intruders who attack you? What if, like the Koreans in LA during the Rodney King riots, gangs of roaming looters threaten your home or place of business and the cops have bailed on the situation? Would you need more than 7 rounds then? It's not like deer hunting at that point, where you can carefully aim, take your time, and gently squeeze off your shots. You may have to point CM and fire ASAP. Don't be such an idiot.

Canetoad -you show total ignorance with your statement.

And what if you have more than 7 people to shoot?

Get it through your head canetoad, the 2nd Amendment isn't about defense.

Gee, why don't cops use six round revolvers anymore? Aren't they trained to be good shots?

Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has just passed into law (in the words of the Associated Press) the nation’s toughest gun restrictions” since the deadly massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School:

Jumping out ahead of Washington, New York state enacted the nation's toughest gun restrictions Tuesday and the first since the Connecticut school massacre, including an expanded assault-weapon ban and background checks for buying ammunition.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the measure into law less than an hour after it won final passage in the Legislature, with supporters hailing it as a model for the nation and gun-rights activists condemning it...
