New York Gun Owners Burn Registration Cards

By Onan Coca   / 19 March 2014   / 1 Comment   

In an awesome act of Civil Disobedience, hundreds of New Yorkers gathered together to protest the NY SAFE Act by burning their gun registration forms.

Folks, it’s time to wake up.

The people of New York are undergoing a siege. Their state government (with the full support of the Obama Administration and Democrats) are stripping away the most basic inalienable rights of the people of New York. The Second Amendment clearly says that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Yet, the state government is clearly cracking down on the people’s right to own firearms.

Some good people in New York are willing to risk everything to stand up for the rights of their fellow citizens – and they proved it a couple of days ago when they gathered together to burn their gun registration cards.


From Facebook:

NY2A Grassroots Coalition is hosting a SAFE Act educational forum at the Elks Banquet Hall in Saratoga Springs on Sunday.

In conjunction with this event, which starts at 1:30 p.m., NY2A is inviting the public to burn SAFE Act registration forms, which will be provided, in the parking lot of the hall. The protest burning will take place at about 4 p.m.

The event is designed to highlight the importance of NOT registering firearms with the state. NY2A and other grassroots Civil Rights organizations have held or scheduled more than two dozen SAFE Act forums around the state ahead of the April 15 firearms registry deadline.

In Saratoga, speakers will address ways to avoid the firearms registry that include civil disobedience, as well as modifications that can be done to a firearm so that it does not meet the state’s arbitrary and capricious definition of an “assault weapon.”

Firearms registration has historically led to confiscation. And firearms registries have often failed due to low participation rates. So far, the state has refused to release the number of registered firearms under the SAFE Act.

The importance of direct political action will also be discussed and NY2A’s More Than Vote campaign will be presented to gun owners. Voter registration will be available on site and we are inviting area residents to learn more about volunteering for political campaigns.


An AR-15 that does not meet the legal definition of an “assault weapon” will be raffled off with proceeds going to the continuing fight against the SAFE Act.

Time: 1:30 p.m., Sunday, March 14 [sic — March 14 is a Friday],
 4 p.m. Assault weapons registration form protest burning
 Location: Elks Banquet Hall,
 1 Elks Lane, Saratoga Springs, NY

 The rallying cry of the group is that “Registration is confiscation.” And truly, the only reason for the government to register the firearms of law abiding citizens is for confiscation. Criminals won’t register their guns, they have no incentive to; in fact, registration gives them greater incentive to keep illicit firearms! Gun registration isn’t about safety – it’s about control… and it’s time we take control back from overreaching bureaucratic overlords like Governor Andrew Cuomo.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I like this!

Take the old burning the draft card thing and use it against the Statists!
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.
