New York Governor Kathy Hochul has announced new anti-gun legislation in the wake of the brutal massacre carried out in a Buffalo supermarket earlier this week.

As The New York Post reports:


Gov. Kathy Hochul is pushing executive orders and legislation to combat gun crimes and domestic terrorism following the deadly, racist-fueled mass shooting in Buffalo last weekend.

The package includes an executive order that would require State Police to seize weapons under the state’s red flag law from potentially dangerous people “whenever they have probable cause to believe that an individual is a threat to themselves or others,” Hochul is announcing Wednesday afternoon.

One bill would require that semi-automatic handguns made or sold in New York include features that would mark ammunition with a microstamp after it is fired, which would help law enforcement better investigate gun crimes.

Other legislation would require law enforcement to report within 24 hours any firearm they recover from a crime scene. Hochul is also pushing a new bill that would expand the definition of firearms to include additional types of guns.

Hochul has also ordered the State Police to set up a unit dedicated to monitoring social media posts for any signs of an imminent attack.

Step One in the gradual take away your guns from law abiding citizens. Big Brother knows what’s best for you. Just be good little sheeple and let them take away your 2nd Amendment rights! Stand up people and say no to overreaching laws! Criminalizing guns means only the state and criminals will have guns. We The People will be defenseless!

A little redundant, there, raylaser! The State will BE the criminals, at that point.

Changing of the “we don’t know a fxxxing thing” guard to Biden the lost. Everything is blowing up in bidens face, no leadership skills, total family corruption, his America last policy has made him a traitor to the American people. Secure our borders, stop the drugs, once impeachment starts all the BS will be reversed. Jail time for all who have lied to Congress and broke their oath of office.

Well! THAT is a lot of expensive doo doo for legislation which will achieve nothing.
