    New York's new gun law has effectively made me a 2nd class citizen. I now cannot posses a semi automatic rifle that others can own. I cannot own a semi automatic pistol others can own. Furthermore, Police officers when not on duty can now carry clips with more than 7 rounds, which I cannot. Politicans can be protected 24/7 by people who dont have to follow those rules, yet I have to wait for police response if something happens.

    We have created the situation where all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    I assume thier next target will be my right to a jury trial, and my protection from search without a warrant.

    I am planning on joining the NRA, and I hope they challenge this law in court. I also plan on purchasing whatever stunted firearm I am allowed by my "betters"

    You know what dude; as you like to say, you don't like the second amendment, change it.

    You don't like New Yorks gun laws. Change them. Or move to somewhere else.

    But quit whining.

    btw, did you do any reading on the Patriot Act yet? See where you can lose all your rights if you are deemed a terrorist by our governmnet.

    without debating the merits (or lack thereof) of the new law, i would think one is only a 'second class citizen' if one can't do what every other citizen can do.

    so one isn't allowed to discuss a law if you agree with it?

    the NRA wouldn't be an "aggrieved party". no doubt they can find a NY'er who would be happy to be the nominal plaintiff.

    reasonable regulation isn't unconstitutional. there are reasonable time, place and manner restrictions on the first amendment, too. the question will be whether these particular regulations are reasonable.

    i think the biggest issue will be the one requiring people to sell over-capacity clips within a year... out of state. i'm not certain anyone can be compelled to do that. and i'm not certain they don't have to grandfather in the things people already down.

    I think Marty makes a valid point. Its a shame the people of New York sit idly by why their elected leaders ban all this stuff. Big Gulps, salt etc
