New York gun owners will likely ignore a looming deadline to register their firearms under the state’s latest gun control law, following the lead of thousands of Connecticut residents who recently did the same under a similar law.
Both states passed draconian gun control laws last year and New York’s version, the SAFE Act, bans the sale of semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and one “military-style” feature, like standard AR-15s for example, and demands that gun owners who already possess such rifles to register them by April 15.
“People are pretty much convinced once they [the state] get on this registration, the next time they’ll say they’ve got to turn them in,” Stephen Aldstadt, president of the Shooters Committee on Political Education,said to the Associated Press.
The New York Police Department has already proved that to be the case.
