    To me the answer is simple. 1911’s carry 7 traditionally, revolvers 6. This also gets rid of anything with a fixed 10 rounder…..SKS’s

    Even though I do not live in NY I do understand how you feel. I feel betrayed as well despite the fact that it does not impact me directly...yet!! I see this as a template for what we all have in our future. My only hope is that enough sheeple wake up and protest before it hits every state and/or the federal level. I still don't think a lot of the strictly sporting owners realize how much this will impact them once their trap/skeep/bird/deer gun becomes an assault rifle over night.

    I truly feel for you guys in NY right now.

    All I can do right now is shake my head in disbelief. While this particular law only affects NY State it is easy to see the writing on the wall that the Federal version of this nightmare will not be far behind. Too many people in this country have been conditioned to believe that ONLY the government can solve problems......They will gladly sign over their rights for a false sense of safety and security. We can call them sheeple, liberals, fools or traitors but the simple fact is that the Vocal Sheep outnumber those of us who would stand up and speak out for the Rights granted to us by the Constitution right now......but they aren't the problem with this country. The problem with America right now is the untold masses who simply don't care what happens either way. These people are the real threat right now.....they can care less about the continued dismantling of the Constitution and the loss of individual rights and freedoms as long as they can flip on the TV and see what Star is dancing with who, or what the Kardashians are wearing or which team is going to win the Super Mega-Duper Bowl. They simply want to be left alone and not bothered by anything that doesn't affect them directly. WE MUST MAKE IT OUR MISSION TO SHOW THESE PEOPLE THAT WHAT IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING AFFECTS THEM MORE THAN THEY CAN IMAGINE.

    First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

    Then they came for the socialists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the jews, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for the catholics, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a catholic.

    Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me

    Well there's significant opposition in assembly. More so than I thought. Very good arguments against this bill. But unlike yesterday, I fear this will pass.

    I just watched Uncle Sam die right in front of me and they wouldn't even allow me to give him rescue breaths.

    Tim, you can talk yourself blue in the face to folks....until it affects them they won’t hear you. I once tried implementing a firewise program in a small town here in danger from wildfire. Years and no interest. One day some lightning came through, started a couple fires.....one went 1200 acres fast and we put it in check right before it burned through the town. That winter I had everything I needed and some. I don’t think people, the ones you speak of, care about much of anything till it’s at the front door and by then it’s too late.

    WM and all the people in NY wrote letters and talked themselves blue in the face......what did it get them? What did words get them?......More words, but the States words have teeth, the peoples don’t. But actions do.....when that reality hit me in the face like a ton of bricks....it was chilling.

    This is how it starts. Throughout history, this is the way it starts……let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself because nobody wants that

    I have just read this news as well. This is terrible, even though I am out of state I am stunned. The assembly approved 104-43, I am praying for Pennsylvania to be more civil minded.

    New Yorkers, you have my condolences for your loss. I can see where the rest of us just might not be all that far behind you. Take care. Tom Worthington.

    Just got home, I heard the news on the way. I'm sorry fellas.

    If I understand correctly, they passed this in the wee hours soon after the wording was released, by the time we were waking up this morning, it had been done.

    I'm afraid the BHO administration will also view this as a pre-victory ahead of the 19 or so executive actions they intend to run through tomorrow.

    Oli's right, and after you've done all you can do and they do what they want anyway, then what? Cuz they won't stop, and we already know this isn't even their end goal, this is intended to pave the road.

    Nitesite, your words 100% reflect my somber mood this evening.

    To my brothers in NY, keep your chins up and keep fighting for your rights. The country is truly watching. You'll be in my prayers.

    While I like to think of PA as a rather pro gun state I'm not that foolish to think we may only be a generation or less behind NY. As other liberal ideas have shown, they take a foothold in one state and then another and soon spread like a disease.

    This was in a sub-burb ofCincy today;
    http://www.wcpo.com/dpp/news/region_wes ... t/buy-back

    It was a buy back program sponsored by a local church. Folks were lined up around the church to trade guns for gift cards to local stores. They ran out of gift cards after an hour and a half!

    This quote really struck me;
    "...if we can get a gun out of one persons hands,..."

    Not, get guns out of criminals hands, but apparently just in general. Get guns out of peoples hands.
