Another way to look at it, if you are a good shot with your weapon, you can kill 5 attackers but the 6th one will take you out. If you live in New York City and your weapon holds more than 5 rounds, you received a letter or have one on the way, instructing you to “surrender” it “immediately.”
“We think it’s an abuse of power by the NYPD,” said Tom King, the president ofNew York State Rifle & Pistol Association. His organization has fought with the state on various gun bills and spent $400,000 on a lawsuit challenging the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act, which was signed in January by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The SAFE Act was the first law in the nation prompted by the December 2012 killing of 20 first-graders and six educators in Newtown, Conn. Its passage was seen as a victory for gun-control advocates because it expands a ban on military-style weapons, requires mental health professionals to report threats, limits magazines to seven bullets, taxes bullets and creates a registry.

My sister-in-law changed internists and was asked if she owned a gun or gun(s).
Earlier this year, Canadian journalist Brian Lilley from Sun News warned Americans during his broadcast that gun “registration will lead to confiscation.”
Lilley described how the Canadian government systematically confiscated firearms from law abiding citizens: (1) create a national gun registry to track the sales of firearms, (2) pass laws that ban certain firearms, (3) notify gun owners that they have 30 days to surrender their registered firearms to local police.

Do you think this will be the last confiscation? How long will 5 rounds be allowed?
