Bank of America has issued this statement refuting the earlier report that they were refusing charges for firearms-related items:

Betty Riess, a Bank of America spokeswoman, told The Daily Caller Wednesday afternoon that Stemick was given incorrect information.

“That’s not accurate,” Riess said.

Whoops! New NY Gun Law Forgot To Exempt Cops On High-Capacity Mags

Screen Shot 2013-01-17 at 9.40.24 PM

Screen Shot 2013-01-17 at 9.40.24 PMThere’s a reason why moving slow on legislation is good.  If it’s too big, or you do it too fast, you often complicate the problem.  New York has just passed the most stringent anti-gun laws on the books.  Yes, government did something! However, as progressives crack open the champagne, they forgot to exempt law enforcement on the measure banning high-capacity magazines.  Then every single cop in New York has essentially broken the law. The new law limits firearm magazines to seven-rounds in New York.

According to Jim Hoffer of ABC Eyewitness News, “as the statute is currently written, it does not exempt law enforcement officers. Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries handguns that have a 15 round capacity. A spokesman for the governor’s office called Eyewitness News to say, ‘We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation.”

 Of course, it’s bad PR to say that cops are law breakers.  Perhaps, this little kerfuffle could’ve been settled if the NY legislature didn’t go through hyperspace to push through this new anti-gun bill.  Furthermore, in a time when we want to deal with mental health and firearms, you’re first instinct isn’t to scare people from treatment.  Allahpundit of Hot Air, citing a piece in USA Today, wrote that:

Mental health experts say a new tougher New York state gun control law might interfere with treatment of potentially dangerous people and even discourage them from seeking help.

The law would require therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to tell government authorities if they believe a patient is likely to harm himself or others. That could lead to revoking the patient’s gun permit and seizing any guns…

“The people who arguably most need to be in treatment and most need to feel free to talk about these disturbing impulses, may be the ones we make least likely to do so,” said the director of law, ethics and psychiatry at Columbia. “They will either simply not come, or not report the thoughts that they have.”

“If people with suicidal or homicidal impulses avoid treatment for fear of being reported in this way, they may be more likely to act on those impulses,” he said

[…]

That’s a solid result for gun control. The police are momentarily in limbo legally and the threat to the public might actually increase as would-be spree killers decide it’s now too risky to seek therapy. Get Cuomo’s office a video camera and a group of kids reading letters about gun control, stat.

TARGETED? Gun Owner Robbed After Newspaper Publishes Address

Journal News mapIn late December 2012, the Journal News published names and addresses of legal gun owners in 2 New York counties. The paper obtained the list via a Freedom of Information request (FOIA), compiled the data and published an article entitled, ‘The Gun Owner Next Door’ complete with interactive maps in the online version of the piece. (Link intentionally left out so as not to provide the Journal News with more hits)

Gun owners immediately voiced their concerns saying that publishing such a list unfairly infringes on their privacy and gives criminals a literal road map of homes to attack and which to avoid.

The gun owners may have been correct.

Police are investigating a burglary in White Plains, NY in which the victim’s legally owned weapons may have been the target. The home was on the Journal News gun map.

One lawmaker is outraged by the event and is blaming the paper for the burglary.

State Senator Greg Ball released a harshly worded statement as news of the crime surfaced over the weekend.

“The Journal News has placed the lives of these folks at risk by creating a virtual shopping list for criminals and nut jobs. If the connection is proven, this is further proof that these maps are not only an invasion of privacy, but they present a clear and present danger to law-abiding, private citizens. Former convicts have already testified to the usefulness of the asinine Journal News ‘gun maps’ yet the reckless editors are evidently willing to roll the dice, gambling with the lives of innocent local homeowners.”

The 72 year old victim of the burglary was not home at the time of the robbery and the accused were unable to open the gun safe. One person is in custody.

Troops Ordered To Kill All Americans Who Do Not Turn In Guns

This is from July, 2012, concerning the United Nations gun ban, which has been rejected, but is sure to come back to center stage for Barack Obama and Joe Biden with their push to ban guns after the Sandy Hook shooting.

From the YouTube Description:

Monday, July 16, 2012
The UN Arms Trade Treaty that has been identified by observers as a flagrant threat to the second amendment and which Barack Obama is determined to sign has its roots in a 1961 State Department memorandum which explains how the United Nations will oversee “complete disarmament” of the American people under the ruse of preventing war. The UN Arms Treaty has caused so much controversy because it outlines a plan to target “all types of conventional weapons, notably including small arms and light weapons,” according to Forbes’ Larry Bell.
Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton also warns that the agreement “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”

A letter sent last month by 130 Republican House members to President Obama argued that the treaty should be rejected because it infringes on the “fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms”. The letter adds that “…the U.N.’s actions to date indicate that the ATT is likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy, and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights.”

Using the rhetoric of the threat post by terrorists, insurgents and “international crime syndicates,” the UN is busy trying to imply that all weapons are somehow involved in illegal activity on a global scale and should therefore be controlled and regulated by a global authority.

This is precisely the same language used in a 1961 U.S. State Department briefing which outlined a long term agenda to carry out a “Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World.”

Invoking the threat of nuclear warfare, the document spells out a plan to create a “United Nations Peace Force” that would “enforce the peace as the disarmament process proceeds.”

While the document initially focuses on scrapping nuclear weapons, it later makes it clear that the only groups allowed to own weapons of any kind would be governing authorities, “for the purpose of maintaining internal order,” and the UN “peacekeeping” force itself, which would require “agreed manpower.”

“The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes,” states the document. While the memorandum outlines a broader mandate to destroy national sovereignty, eviscerate national armies and institute the UN as the planet’s supreme authority with a world army, the document serves as a stark reminder that the plan for the United Nations to oversee the abolition of the second amendment has been in the works for decades.

As Bell points out in his Forbes article, the threat of the Obama administration relying on a UN treaty to do what successive administrations have tried but failed to accomplish — taking a huge bite out of the second amendment — is by no means far fetched.

After all, a plethora of UN treaties and international agreements have already stripped the United States of its sovereignty and its power to decide its own laws. The power to authorize U.S. involvement in wars and conflicts has now been almost completely stripped from Congress and handed to the United Nations.

The Journal News Doxes (possible) NY Handgun Owners

(Westchester County, NY)

Watch out for those spooky gun owners!  At least that’s what The Journal News wants you to think when they published the names and addresses of everyone with a handgun permit in Westchester and Rockland counties.

Journal News released the Google Map, which doxed these people, through an affiliate site called lohud.com on December 22.

 The map indicates the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Each dot represents an individual permit holder licensed to own a handgun — a pistol or revolver. The data does not include owners of long guns — rifles or shotguns — which can be purchased without a permit. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location owns a weapon, just that they are licensed to do so.

So, what’s the point?​  You don’t include people with rifles, and you admit that the list isn’t accurate.  It’s just people who have a permit because they’re all crazy and need to be followed.  Liberal logic can be amusing at times.  IF the people really wanted to know who had weapons in their neighborhoods, you would think lohud would put the time and effort in to have a more comprehensive list.  If that wasn’t possible, then why waste your time?  So, was this little stunt necessary?​

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart called this ‘intimidation,’ and wrote on December 24 that:

The newspaper didn’t even feel it necessary to publish a rationale for that violation of privacy – publishing the names and addresses of gun owners makes them more vulnerable to robbery when they aren’t at home, since criminals will know where the guns are.

They did, however, run a piece targeting gun owners as the root of all evil:

In the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and amid renewed nationwide calls for stronger gun control, some Lower Hudson Valley residents would like lawmakers to expand the amount of information the public can find out about gun owners. About 44,000 people in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam — one out of every 23 adults — is licensed to own a handgun.

Yes, because all gun owners are crazy people for wanting to protect their family and  property.  When did that become a mental defect?  This whole narrative framing gun owners as sex offenders who can’t control their impulses is liberalism at its most depraved state.  Yet, their representatives on the Hill have the temerity to ask conservatives to work with them on new gun regulations.
