When the travesty was passed in the dark of night I read NYS constitution and found it one of few that has no "individual" right to bear arms
mentioned. Big surprise there right? it only had reference to state controlled militia. This is much of why your legislature acted as it did.
Your only legal protection is US constitution and the doctrine of "supremacy" that doctrine may be knocked down for this or many other valid reasons
in the future and it will leave you at total mercy of your state government.
I suggest either amending state constitution rather quickly or move somewhere else that has the "individual" right in its constituion - this at
least affords dual protection no matter if the courts rule "states rights" or "supremacy"
I applaud the various Sheriffs who stand by their oaths not only in NYS but across the country as well as the various manufacturers who have refused
to sell their goods to NYS.
I hope enough is enough and people from all over the state with a commom cause can band together to wrest control back from the down-statists. Ever
thought of surgically removing NYC and making it into a district for the fiscally,mentally and politically insane? It'd give a place for those of
that ilk from Albany, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse a place to emigrate to where they can practice running each others lives to their hearts
Meanwhile leaving the rest of the state alone.
