New York Lawmaker: ‘There Will Be More Than 7 Bullets In My Wife’s Firearm!’

KATZ: After what happened to the young mother in Loganville, Georgia who defended her two young children against an intruder, this bill would turn me into a criminal because you can bet that before I leave to do the people’s work, there will be more than 7 bullets in the magazine of my wife’s firearm.

4. Then throw him and his wife in jail. I have no problem with that.

Part of the price for living in a civilized society is abiding by laws passed by our elected representatives.

If you don't want to abide by those rules, go live somewhere else, or go to jail.

Your choice.

8. Go live somewhere else, or go to jail?

 

I've been wondering where OWS went. They couldn't abide by the laws passed by our elected reps, so they moved to another country or are in jail.
Makes sense now that you have explained it, thanks.

9. What bullshit.

Big difference between exorcizing free speech and violating gun laws.

10. That is not what you said

 


"Part of the price for living in a civilized society is abiding by laws passed by our elected representatives"

OWS broke plenty of laws during their protests. Camping on public land, impeding traffice, drug use, failure to obey the police, trespassing, violence and vandalism, to name a few. All being "laws that had been passed by our elected representatives."

13. And litterally hundreds of people that participated in OWS went to jail or paid heavy fines.

So what is your point? Not every single person that showed up at any given event broke laws.. Some did as usually happens at ANY event and many paid a stiff price for their actions...

14. It's their choice

 

They can move if they don't like the law, or they can be jailed for every little violation they commit.

I for one know that I would feel safer visiting NYC without the fear of being attacked by OWS members hanging around every corner.

5. Just a quick question because I don't know,

 

but are police and politicians exempt from this new law?
I would imagine that police are, but not sure about pols.

7. Statistics show she'll most likely use the gun to kill herself

Meanwhile, research shows that a “gun in the home is 22 times more likely to be used in a completed or attempted suicide (11x), criminal assault or homicide (7x), or unintentional shooting death or injury (4x) than to be used in a self-defense shooting.”

12. Couldn't he just give her TWO guns?

Shooting from both hands always looks cool in the movies...
