I also find it very interesting that many of the concerns were that the government was going to take your guns. So far the laws passed in NY and the laws proposed in Washington DC do not take guns. With nobody taking your guns, why is everybody still upset?
Because their too stupid to know you can keep them. They think all semi-auto guns are banned and need turned in or sold out of state:
**Bull s--- they aren't trying to take the guns. NY just passed a law that just effectively made 85% of all handguns illegal. Turn them in, sell them out of state, or commit a class B felony by keeping them. The word "naive" mean anything to you?
Yet you can own a Beretta, Ruger, Glock Or Hi-Point 9MM semi-auto handgun and get this, not on the list of weapons they prohibit from sale, so you'll still be able to buy them in the future after the law goes into effect.
Shit, a Ruger Mini-14 isn't on the list either, so I'm good. I don't even need to register it because it doesn't have a folding stock or a grenade launcher. http://www.governor.ny.gov/2013/gun-reforms-faq
