I read this article at Fox today about the new sweeping gun legislation in New York and this paragraph really took me back. I had to read it twice to make sure I wasn’t missing something:
“It is well-balanced, it protects the Second Amendment,” said Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos of Long Island. “And there is no confiscation of weapons, which was at one time being considered.”
They were actually considering “confiscating weapons”. So what he’s saying here is that he knew – they all knew – confiscating weapons was a violation of the 2nd Amendment but the democrats were considering doing it anyway. Are you reading what I’m reading?
New York doesn’t want residents anymore. They don’t want business in their state. Between their high taxes, heavy regulations and now their burdensome and nearly unConstitutional new gun laws, they will run people out. People will continue to leave the state. They will lose more and more of their tax base. Hell, when Rush left Manhattan, I’m sure there was a massive fear of closure of New York public libraries.
We are living in scary and perilous times when politicians will so casually toss around ignoring and violating the Constitution and encouraging the president to do so as well.
