New Yorkers Burn Registration Cards In Protest Of Gun-Grab Scheme

March 18, 2014 by Sam Rolley In “Okie From Muskogee,” Merle Haggard, the country music superstar who made the song famous, suggested that freedom-loving Americans wouldn’t be caught burning draft cards on Main Street in an effort to make a political statement. But we suspect that Haggard would appreciate, maybe even join in, the public political burning that occurred in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., over the weekend where piles of gun registration forms went up in smoke.

Gun rights activists organized by the NY2A Grassroots Coalition gathered at a local Elks Lodge Sunday and set alight nearly a thousand gun registration forms. The forms were made necessary by the anti-2nd Amendment New York SAFE Act. The grass-roots organizers of the gun-registration burning said that the event was designed to encourage New York residents to forgo the registration process as an act of disobedience.

The registration cards, requiring residents to make the New York State Police aware of any “assault” weapons they own, are supposed to be completed and filed with the State by April 15.

But NY2A co-founder Jake Palmateer told the local Post Star that there is a good chance that activism like what unfolded on Sunday could encourage so many people to disobey the portion of the SAFE law requiring registration that it will begin to “collapses under its own weight.”

At present, according to Palmateer, fewer than 3,000 New Yorkers have registered their “assault” weapons with the State police.

The reason people are hesitant to do so, he says, is simple. “We are opposed to registration because the evidence is clear that registration leads to confiscation,” he said.

While there is no clear number to indicate exactly how many New Yorkers have registered their guns, other estimates are higher than the number provided by Palmateer. Chatter from sources close to the State Police put the estimate of compliant registrants somewhere in the hundreds of thousands, and people involved in the firearms industry say it could be as many as 1.2 million.

Nonetheless, the New York 2nd Amendment advocates responsible for the weekend protest are undeterred in their mission to encourage civil disobedience with regard to the SAFE Act. They’re also poised to use the anti-gun law to create big problems for vulnerable Democrats in the State throughout the 2014 election cycle.

Palmateer told reporters that his organization will be carefully vetting State Assembly and Senate candidates to “make sure we are putting people in who are pro-civil rights.” “Ultimately, this is a civil rights issue,” he explained.

New York’s Democrat Governor, Andrew Cuomo, derided gun-rights activists who weren’t on board with his gun-control plan earlier this year, saying during a radio interview:

“If they are extreme conservatives, they have no place in the State of New York.” To the men gathered at the event on Sunday, however, the issue has nothing to do with being liberal, conservative or “extreme” in either ideological direction. “We are not extremists,” said local councilman Kevin Sisson. “We are simply free men who love our country.”

To Sisson and others in attendance at the protest, the main issue is respect for the U.S. Constitution and the people whose rights it protects.

“Once the Second Amendment falls, the rest will go with it. It’s an unConstitutional law, done in the middle of the night with no input from the public,” said E.J. Stokes, who heads a local chapter of the pro-liberty New York Revolution.

New York’s 2nd Amendment supporters aren’t the first group that has been forced to acts of civil disobedience following the deluge of harsh State-level anti-gun legislation brought on by the emotional distress of highly publicized mass shootings in recent years.

In Connecticut, it was reported last month that as many as 300,000 “military-style assault weapons” remain accounted for, despite a law requiring that gun owners report their possessions to the State.

On Friday, the State’s Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection sent a letter to owners who had failed to register the items by a Jan. 1, advising them that, facing felony penalties, their now-illegal assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines must be rendered completely inoperable or handed over to police.

Snippet from Wikipedia: New York (state)

New York (NY or N.Y.) is a state located in the northeastern United States. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With more than 19 million residents in 2019, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from its city with the same name, it is sometimes referred to as New York State (NYS).

Two-thirds of the state's population lives in the New York metropolitan area (including nearly 40% on Long Island). The state and city were named for the 17th-century Duke of York, the future King James II of England. With an estimated population of 8.34 million in 2019, New York City is the most populous city in the United States and the premier gateway for immigration to the United States. The New York metropolitan area is one of the most populous in the world.

New York City is a global city, home to the United Nations Headquarters, and has been described as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world, as well as the world's most economically powerful city. The next four most populous cities in the state are Buffalo, Rochester, Yonkers, and Syracuse, while the state capital is Albany.

The 27th largest U.S. state in land area, New York has a diverse geography. The state is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south and Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island, east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Quebec to the north and Ontario to the northwest. The southern part of the state is in the Atlantic coastal plain and includes Long Island and several smaller associated islands, as well as New York City and the lower Hudson River Valley. The large Upstate New York region comprises several ranges of the wider Appalachian Mountains, and the Adirondack Mountains in the Northeastern lobe of the state. The north–south Hudson River Valley and the east–west Mohawk River Valley bisect these more mountainous regions. Western New York is considered part of the Great Lakes region and borders Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, and Niagara Falls. The central part of the state is dominated by the Finger Lakes, a popular vacation and tourist destination.

New York had been inhabited by tribes of Algonquian and Iroquoian-speaking Native Americans for several hundred years by the time the earliest Europeans came to New York. French colonists and Jesuit missionaries arrived southward from Montreal for trade and proselytizing. In 1609, the region was visited by Henry Hudson sailing for the Dutch East India Company. The Dutch built Fort Nassau in 1614 at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, where the present-day capital of Albany later developed. The Dutch soon also settled New Amsterdam and parts of the Hudson Valley, establishing the multicultural colony of New Netherland, a center of trade and immigration. England seized the colony from the Dutch in 1664. During the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), a group of colonists of the Province of New York attempted to take control of the British colony and eventually succeeded in establishing independence. In the 19th century, New York's development of the interior, beginning with the Erie Canal, gave it incomparable advantages over other regions of the east coast and built its political and cultural ascendancy.

Many landmarks in New York are well known, including four of the world's ten most-visited tourist attractions in 2013: Times Square, Central Park, Niagara Falls, and Grand Central Terminal. New York is home to the Statue of Liberty. In the 21st century, New York has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, and environmental sustainability. New York's higher education network comprises approximately 200 colleges and universities, including Columbia University, Cornell University, New York University, the United States Military Academy, the United States Merchant Marine Academy, University of Rochester, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Rockefeller University, which have been ranked among the top 100 in the nation and world. Additionally, Binghamton University and Stony Brook University are the state's top public universities, both receiving top 100 in the US rankings by US News, at #78 and #91, respectively.
