One of the antigunners' prime arguments is that additional firearms restrictions are common sense, and the intention is most definitely NOT to take away your guns. I have known this to be a lie for some time, and in states such as New York, whose legislatures were stampeded into passing even more restrictions, it appears it is going to be SOP.

According to several news outlets, a gun shop owner in New York was "forced" to turn over his records to the New York State police, and that said owner "fears" gun confiscation is next.

Gun confiscation using records of firearms exchanges is ALWAYS next.

If you buy from a gun shop, if you take your firearms to a gunsmith shop, and if you provide any form of identification for even a private firearms buy, your gun is registered with the government in some form. I have heard from several sources that gunsmith shops whose proprietors also sell guns are required to permit law enforcement to copy their logs. Your gun is being registered if it is only in for service.

I have also said this here and elsewhere. If you want a gun, buy privately, use cash only, do not provide identification and stay clear of Federal Firearms License agencies, which is what they are: agents for the federal government.

By the way: by law, law enforcement are not supposed to do this.

What will happen in New York is anyone's guess. Mike Vanderboegh has suggested that if the left makes electoral gains locally in such states as New York and Connecticut, actual armed raids will become the order of the day as law enforcement thugs seek to steal private property. And if you resist, or if they f*ck up, you'll be dead. It seems to be the endgame for those jamokes.

Remember: in the minds of your political masters, "law abiding citizens" are nothing more than targets and serfs.

I read this last week about how to speed load an AR under fire. A lot of seemingly good advice. The "magazine flip" is mentioned and in other places on the internet is scoffed at.

For some amusement on this issue, see this video.

Loads.
