NYAGV’s 2021 State Legislative Agenda

New Yorkers Against Gun Violence is collecting signatures in support of their legislative agenda.

Guns bills they want this session include:

  • A-613/S-14, Enacts the “Jose Webster Untraceable Firearms Act.”
  • A-2666/S-13, Enacts the “Scott J. Beigel Unfinished Receiver Act.”
  • S-1048, Relates to the dangers to the safety and health of the public caused by the sale, manufacturing, importing and marketing of firearms and whether such activity constitutes a public nuisance.  An attempt to get around the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.
  • S-1049, Establishes the “Community Violence Intervention and Prevention Act.”  It hands out money to politico’s cronies back home.
  • S-4116, Requires semiautomatic pistols manufactured or delivered to any licensed dealer in this state to be capable of microstamping ammunition.

NYAGV has taken a back seat to Everytown in recent years, but they’re sure to get at least the first two items on their wish list.

NYPD doesn’t believe that

Queens D.A. Melinda Katz held a “gun buyback” last week:

“… “Every gun turned in this Saturday is a potential tragedy averted,” Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a statement. “This is the public’s opportunity to help us put a stop to bloodshed by turning in firearms.” …”

NYPD doesn’t believe that:

“… The NYPD held only two buybacks this year — a reflection of the belief among police brass and city pols that the events are ineffective when it comes to preventing gun violence. … at an October event on gun policy NYPD Deputy Commissioner Susan Hermann said the events attract out-of-towners looking to make easy money. “It has minimal impact,” she said, according to The New York Observer. “Typically when we do gun buybacks, actually they’re often people from other states coming to give us — Pennsylvania, New Jersey people — coming into New York to sell their guns. That’s a good thing — it’s good for America to get more guns off the street. It doesn’t particularly reap a lot of benefits here in New York.” …”

Revolving door

More evidence that gun control, particularly in New York City, has never been about crime control:

“… Nearly 90 percent of suspects arrested on gun charges this year are back on the streets, which the NYPD says has fueled a historic spike in shootings that have left more than 1,756 dead or wounded. About 3,345 of the 3,793 perps arrested between Jan. 1 and Nov. 30 for firearms crimes — 88 percent — were let go, according to department data. Just 450 remain in jail, the NYPD told The Post …”

Have any gun control proponents commented on this? No.

Bloomberg tries to buy Florida for Biden

Mike Bloomberg announced plans to try and buy Florida for Joe Biden:

“Billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to spend at least $100 million in the crucial battleground of Florida in support of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to CNN … “Mike Bloomberg is committed to helping defeat Trump, and that is going to happen in the battleground states. Mike’s substantial investment in Florida, in addition to his contributions to the DNC and to voter protection and restoration efforts this cycle, will mean Democrats and the Biden campaign can invest even more heavily in other key states like Pennsylvania, which will be critical to a Biden victory,” top Bloomberg adviser Kevin Sheekey told CNN …”

Bloomberg couldn’t buy himself the nomination and he’s able to speak coherent sentences.

INT 2038-2020

INT 2038-2020 was introduced by Councilman Daniel Dromm to the Criminal Justice Committee.

According to the bill:

“… The council finds that it should be the policy of this city to promote the dignified and fair treatment of persons in the criminal justice system and in other institutions of confinement. The council declares that the use of outmoded terms, including “inmate” and “prisoner,” to refer to persons in custody in the criminal justice system and other institutions, is dehumanizing and demeaning to such persons, and that such terms should be eliminated from use in local law and replaced with terms that emphasize persons first, and not their circumstances …”

Idiocy like this is why people are leaving the City en masse.

Antigun agenda creep

It’s well established that the major gun control organizations are little more than astroturf paid for and run by professional activists and politicians. Lately they appear to be expanding their mission beyond gun control into such areas as Fuck Tha Police:

and statehood for Washington, D.C.:

I can understand why they’d want the later, it would give them a few more reliably antigun representatives. But jumping onto the radical bash the police bandwagon? Maybe they think they can raise money off the issue?

Pissing off the right people

A local Democrat functionary pisses off meathead Mom. The Yonker’s Times reports:

“A Facebook post last week by Yonkers small businessman and democratic political leader John Khader drew a harsh response from local gun safety —organizations including Mom’s Demand Action … On June 2, John Khader posted a photo of a gun with bullets, and commented “unconfirmed reports of protestors/rioters in my hood ready for anything … Barry Graubart, a member of Mom’s Demand Action in New York, responded to Khader’s post, writing, “I was appalled to see this post on Facebook and Instagram today, threatening protesters with violence with what appears to be a short-barreled pistol-grip pump-action shotgun. These weapons are often referred to colloquially as a “zombie killer” … “

That’s hilarious.

“… The photo was posted under the account “Johnny Limo”, which belongs to John Khader, MPAC founder and owner of Top Class Limo in Yonkers. Gun violence may be a joke to John Khader, but to many of us in Westchester, it’s a reality that has taken too many lives. And in the current environment, with people protesting for racial justice, with increasing domestic violence, gun violence is no laughing matter,” said Graubart …”

Barry Graubart is a laughing matter. Moms is a phony far-left gun control front group created by Mike Bloomberg.

“… John Khader said, “My post was in no way intended to promote violence. I overacted when I heard that there might be looting going close to my neighborhood. But I did it to protect myself and my family.” Catherine Schowalter, a member of Mom’s Demand Action in Westchester, said that, “It was the wrong thing to post. The 2nd Amendment gives the right to have a licensed gun in your house, but it shouldn’t be used as a threat to others.” Romano is running in a Democratic Primary for Yonkers City Court Judge …”

Wrong. The appropriate way to deal with the threat of violent rioters is with the threat of even more violence.  The hugs-for-thugs mentality is why part of Seattle is now governed by a warlord.

Swalwell endorses Farkas for Congress

More endorsements in the CD-17 Democrat primary free-for-all:

Evelyn Farkas … has announced Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has endorsed her campaign to represent New York’s 17th Congressional District. Swalwell has represented California’s 15th Congressional District district since 2013, and announced a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. “”Dr. Evelyn Farkas has dedicated her life to America’s foreign relations and national security, and I’ve been impressed by her great humor and empathy,” Swalwell said. “We worked hard to expose the corrupt relationship between Trump and Putin, and we share a mission today of ending the gun violence that threatens our communities. At such a pivotal moment in our nation’s history, I can think of nobody better to follow in the footsteps of the great Nita Lowey …” …”

A most prestigious endorsement coming from the guy who threatened to nuke gun owners who don’t go along with his dreams of gun confiscation.
