    In a radio interview on Thursday with Albany’s WGDJ-AM, New York governor Andrew Cuomo said that he plans to work with state legislators next month to submit a proposal for new gun-control laws; in particular, Cuomo said, “our focus is assault weapons,” because current state laws regulating the weapons “have more holes that Swiss cheese.”

    “I don’t think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, ‘I need an assault weapon to go hunting,’” he said.

    Cuomo continued, “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

    I suggest that before Gov. Cuomo call upon the citizens of NY state to control firearms more, or confiscate them,. He and his political cronies representing the the people of NY, in both Cities, State and Federal government surrender their weapons first. (emphasis mine)

    If you aren't in a militia, what right do you have to keep and bear arms?

    Guess it brings up the question what is militia? In the Revolutionary War, the militia was simple farmers and towns folks picking up their hunting guns, and fighting alongside the "regulars" of the Army

    The military and police are not militia.

    Duh, only if you're in a militia... Are you in a militia...? Actually, no one is - because we have a standing socialist army.

    No militia - no guns!
