I can see it now. Just a money grab as usual. They'll find some way to charge a fee in the future for you to have the assault weapons/mags. They'll get their money which is all they care about. And they'll probably force you to get special insurance as well!
Ahhhh how I wish I could move to a red state. Alas my whole family is here. Maybe someday...
Grew up in NY. It's pretty much the same laws as CT and MA. The "Safe Act" has stripped NY of all rights and made it nearly impossible for the law abiding citizen to defend oneself. Moved the hell out of NY as soon as I could. They don't even honor FEDERAL transport law and 90% of local law enforcement in NY does NOT know local gun laws which boggles my mind. I keep a printed copy of the Federal transport and local gun laws when traveling through NY.
I think the politicians forget that the person behind the gun is the dangerous one and placing all of these restrictions on what we can and cannot own just makes it harder for the law abiding citizen to protect and defend their families and like a lock on a door they just keep an honest man honest. The criminals who want guns are gonna go through alternate means to get them.
I also feel that the politicians, amazingly, tend to forget that during the War of 1812, while Francis Scott Key wrote our national anthem outside of Fort McHenry, on a ship in Chesapeake Bay negotiating the release of William Beanes it was the "WELL REGULATED MILITIA" that kept that flag still standing because they knew as soon as it hit the ground it was over....
