Hundreds of gun rights advocates turned out for a meeting here Sunday that was in equal parts a rally against Gov. Andrew Cuomo and a teach-in on how to not comply with his SAFE Act assault weapons registration law.
The event, put on by the NY2A Grassroots Coalition, ended with a show of civil disobedience as dozens of attendees filed out of the Saratoga Springs Elks Lodge to burn NYS Police Assault Weapons Registration forms in a barbeque grill set up for the purpose.
â€śWe are demonstrating to New York state that we will not be registering our firearms with the state,â€ť one protester said, tending the fire. â€śWe refuse to register.â€ť
Same as many in Connecticut. The fact is, passing laws that turn law-abiding citizens into criminals is just plain wrong, and generally doesn’t work. And, even if every NY citizen obeyed the new law and registered their guns, it wouldn’t do a thing to lower crime rates. Why? Because criminals don’t obey the law and aren’t registering their guns. Liberal garbage like Cuomo and Malloy will never understand that.
