New York gun control: Hudson Valley cops balk at enforcement as laws take effect

New York gun control: Hudson Valley cops balk at enforcement as laws take effect – As the primary enforcers of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s sweeping gun control laws, state troopers hear directly from New York gun owners — and so far, it’s been an earful.  So much so that, last week, the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association issued a statement distancing troopers from Cuomo and warning of public resentment toward law enforcement since the gun law’s...

U.S. Senate praised for upholding Constitution

U.S. Senate praised for upholding Constitution – As the citizens of Boston begin to put some normalcy back in their lives, sympathetic folks around here also look forward to better days ahead — especially those who hunt and fish.  Gunowners are no different. They’re getting fed up with progressives on both a state and national level of wanting to deprive them of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. That’s why legitimate gunowners across the nation applauded those U.S. Senators who adhered to their oath of office of upholding the U.S. Constitution by voting down both the Feinstein gun ban by a 60-percent margin (60 nays, 40 yeas) and the Manchin-Toomey-Schumer proposal by a vote of...

Could Obama’s gun-control push cost Democrats the Senate?

Could Obama’s gun-control push cost Democrats the Senate? – So far, we’ve heard a lot of bluster coming from Barack Obama and his allies on Capitol Hill about how the voters will punish Republicans for opposing a series of gun-control measures that didn’t even keep all the Democrats in the fold.  The real problem with “the audacity of mope,” as National Hotline’s Josh Kraushaar writes today, is that voters may end up punishing Democrats in key 2014 Senate contests.  Obama and the Democrats just learned the wrong lesson over their spectacular and embarrassing failure, and may lose the Senate as a...

Gun control vote called “a disgrace” by Mayor Bloomberg

Gun control vote called “a disgrace” by Mayor Bloomberg – A fiery Mayor Bloomberg blasted Senators who voted against new gun control legislation, calling the vote “a disgrace” and adding”children lost.”  The plan would have forced people buying guns over the Internet and at gun shows to undergo a background check. It needed 60 votes to pass the Senate, but only received 54.  “You’re either in favor of continuing the killing and the tragedies or you’re not. This was an up or down vote,” he...

Albany police union blasts SAFE Act as ‘foolish’

Albany police union blasts SAFE Act as ‘foolish’ – The Albany Police Officers Union is the latest to blast the state’s sweeping new gun control law, saying the so-called SAFE Act “violates fundamental constitutional rights” and is “unduly and purposely burdensome on law-abiding citizens.”  The union, an affiliate of statewide law enforcement union Council 82, has sent a blistering four-page letter (posted below) airing its grievances with the controversial new law to the region’s state legislative delegation.  The sharply worded message from APOU President Thomas Mahar calls for the law’s repeal — saying it won’t make anyone safer and demonstrates government’s  ”contempt” for the state’s...
