New Gun Control Law Would Require Gun Owners in NY to get Mental Health Evaluations

Recommended Posts

The Anti-2A politicians don't even try to hide their agendas anymore, it's like one state is trying to outdo another:

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- The march for more gun laws in New York continues with on another assault on the rights of the citizens in what is truly becoming the Empire State.

The bill (S7065) (A01589) would make it mandatory that every gun owner in the state of New York get a mental health evaluation before they could purchase a firearm. This wouldn’t be a one-time thing, this would be for every gun and of course, these evaluations would have to be held at a location of the state of New York’s choosing and would be at the expense of the person looking to purchase the gun.

There is also a larger and much more sinister motive to think about here. New York passed its own version of a Red Flag law last year, and unlike other states, it allows schools and just about anyone else to petition the courts to get an ERPO and have someone’s firearms taken away. Now can you imagine every gun owner now having to be subjected to a mental health exam, over and over again, where one wrong question, one misconstrued answer or even the bias of the doctor could not only prevent someone from legally buying the gun they were looking to get, but also lead to the police coming to the house and taking the rest and with a doctor’s word versus the citizen’s in court, the gun owner, soon to become the former gun owner, wouldn’t stand a chance legally.

Politicians everywhere have their fingers on the "ON" button of the Tree of Liberty's sprinkler system, and many don't even give a crap.

When is that tree finally going to be tall enough to provide the required "shade"?

This is a really BIG issue. NY's SAFE act had hardly any compliance, and very few registered their guns. Now, with this Bill, when you go to buy a new firearm, they FORCE you to go to their government supported physician, who denies your mentally health, and not only are you not approved for purchase, but they show up at your house and take everything else you have...

A backdoor confiscation and really slippery slope!

If you resist the confiscation and it gets physical they then turn around and say "See, he is violent! We did the right thing."

Reminder: this is a public-facing forum. I personally think these threads about proposed anti-2A laws are very important and should be seen by as many eyes as possible. For that reason, I really don't want to move any of them to the 1A Lounge. But I've had to hide a few posts already. So, be a helper... and think before you type. Thank you!! :)

    • 2017 wrangler JKU, freedom edition.    I bought it new and modified as I wanted over 18 months.  First, bumpers and winch, then new fastback soft top, AEV lift,  armor and wheels.  I did a few minor cosmetic changes like stubbier antenna, rear door carrier bags and such.   I've taken it to Rausch creek Pa a few times and easily manage the blue trails.  Even had to tow out a buddy who got suck with his stock rubi.     all my hard body parts were order from extreme terrain.com.  They are located in PA and have great prices and customer prices.  I ordered tires online and had them and my lift professionally install.  If you go with a lift, like Fishnut said, pay to have it done.  Personally I’d avoid the budget lifts, but I know plenty who went that route and have zero problems and love the zero rake look.     in the end, it’s a jeep...modify as you like and how your budget allows.   It’s the adult version of legos...
    • To add, here is a good Wrangler parts source: https://www.quadratec.com/   You are in SC, so may or may not be worth the shipping, but maybe something closer is available.  Lift kits are pretty heavy to ship.
    • I am on my third Grand Cherokee in a row, lol.  I try to limit the customization since these are leases and mostly used for mall crawl (to coin Fishnut's phrase), but I just returned from driving the sand at island beach park this morning.  I air down and hit the buggy access path about halfway down the park road (its flat) and then steam down to the inlet where you can see the Barneget lighthouse.  The sand is littered with a hundred years of busted shells, so it is very firm at th inlet.  With stock all season tires, I can power on through deep sand as long as I don't stop midway.  The real offroaders use real mudbog rubber.  They never get stuck.  I just can't justify a real setup like that on a vehicle I may not have in 2 years.  But I do carry a tow cable, shovels, wheel jack and traction mats for bad situations. I would never attempt  rock crawl in this unless I owned it as a second vehicle.  Imagine the lease return damage fee on a truck with a broken axle and half the paint scraped away.  Not pretty. But I do see a number of older wranglers for sale every day that might do the trick...right on the highway.  Already done up and easy to work on.  Might be some good finds out there.  The Gas Monkey dude's buddy owns a parts warehouse for that sort of thing (part upgrades).  Can't recall the name though. I do tend to browse the lot when in for an oil change.  But a tricked out Wrangler, brandy new for 50 grand?  Not in my budget. But by the way, the higher trim models have air ride adjustments.  I can turn a knob on the center consol and lift 3 inches.  Pretty cool until it eventually breaks I guess.  But thats the next owner's problem.  
    • A .22 is always a great choice!  I've had a S&W K .22 Masterpiece for decades.  A real tack-driver & a great trainer!  Mine is the 8 3/8" barrel. It would have been at Old Bridge R&P Club's ladies Day at the Range again this year if not for the Covid closure... Here's Emily Cutts, then 15 in March of last year, at her private range in the Pines.  Ruger .22 all tricked-out with TandemKross.  She's a sponsored shooter.  Her family are big 2A proponents.    
    • I had the S&W 63. Definitely was not too light. It was like shooting a bb gun. If I were to get another one it would be the S&W 317 kit gun. At least the lightweight would make it somewhat fun to shoot.
