The governor of the state of New York and her Democrat legislators have passed nine additional gun control provisions in a state that has plenty of restrictions. They have raised the age to purchase long guns to 21. So, if you’re 18 and you want to go hunting with your Dad you’re out of luck.
Then, in another astonishingly counterintuitive measure, a New York senate bill prevents citizens from purchasing—wait for it—body armor and bullet-proof vests. New York residents may be wondering how they can safely ride the subways now.
And here’s the kicker: one senate bill changes the definition of a firearm to include, “any other weapon that is not otherwise defined containing any component that provides housing or a structure designed to hold or integrate any fire control component that is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by action of explosive.”
New York is also enacting microstamping requirements so that bullets can be traced to the gun. So, forget about ballistic tests and goodbye, cheap ammunition.
In the left’s frenzy to pass new gun laws, they may be overlooking an unintended outcome. Additional restrictions on the Second Amendment will require enforcement. Enforcement requires police, prosecution and jail time for violators.
As the poor, people of color, and other minorities are affected by additional gun laws, will we hear liberal claims that those laws are racist? Who wanted those laws in the first place?
