New York City authorities aren’t waiting for their new Marxist mayor Bill DeBlasio to take office in order to issue totalitarian gun-grabbing edicts.
New York City last week started sending out dire notices to residents who own guns that now violate new ammunition capability laws, demanding they relinquish their weapons — and even though the notifications may just be standard police procedure, the text will come as a shock to most Americans aware of our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
At issue: Weapons that hold more than five rounds of ammo. That’s right…FIVE!
One such notice to a city resident, dated Nov. 18 and posted on Truth About Guns, reads: “Immediately surrender your rifle and/or shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter. Permanently remove your rifle and/or shotgun from New York City.” (see below)
The letter also advises that the recipient “may call to discuss the matter if you believe your firearm is in compliance, or you may request the option to bring your firearm to a licensed gunsmith for a permanent modification and certification proving that it is permanently modified and in compliance.”
The notice above deals directly with New York City gun regulations, but there are also concerns of a potential state-wide gun confiscation effort in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act.
The Associated Press reported that it wasn’t clear if police were taking aggressive steps to root out those who ignored the demands of the letter.
Things will only get worse when openly Communist new mayor DeBlasio takes the oath in January. DeBlasio has criticized rabid anti-gun Mayor Michael Bloomberg of not “going far enough” on gun control, promising to eviscerate the entire gun industry in the state.
