I'm shocked! Senator Schneiderman got the backing of NYAGV for his attempt to violate our rights and make the hopolophobes in New York City feel all warm and fuzzy!
He is praised for keeping the NRA out of the schools. That can only mean that he prevented the Eddie Eagle program from teaching kids that if they see a gun, "stop, don't touch, leave the area and tell an adult!". Wow, it's a good thing kids aren't learning that lesson. It's so much better that the kids learn to join a gang, deal drugs and kill each other for entertainment while the politicians blame guns and the law abiding gun owners for the failure of the Nanny State.
That brings us to microstamping, the idea that your going to engrave a serial number on a firing pin and in the chamber of a handgun (semi-auto only) and a criminal isn't going to file it off, use an older gun, or a revolver is just plain stupid. Then there are the costs, which of course will be the burden of the law abiding, that's if a handgun is even manufactured to comply.
It's good to have Jackie Hilly, the "intelligent" hopolophobe from NYAGV who say towards the end of The Colbert Report, that 9 out of 10 guns used in crime in NY City come from out of State.
Ummm, what am I missing? If 9 out of 10 guns used in crime came from out of state, how can microstamping help fight crime in New York?
