The National Rifle Association’s New York state affiliate filed a federal lawsuit Thursday in Buffalo contesting the constitutionality of the SAFE Act, the sweeping gun-control bill Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law in January, the group announced in a press release.

The new laws fortify New York’s existing assault weapons ban, limit the number of bullets allowed in ammunition magazines and strengthen rules that govern the mentally ill, which includes a requirement to report potentially harmful behavior.

“Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature usurped the legislative and democratic process in passing these extreme anti-gun measures with no committee hearings and no public input,” Chris Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action said in the release.

“This obvious disrespect for New Yorkers and their Second Amendment rights will not be tolerated,” he added.

New York’s new laws include a statewide gun registry and a uniform licensing standard, altering the current system in which each county or municipality sets its own standard.

Residents are now restricted to purchasing ammunition magazines that carry seven bullets, rather than 10.

The laws were the first in the nation to be enacted after the Newtown, Connecticut, school massacre.

New York authorities said last week they had reached a deal with 23 gun show operators in the state after an investigation revealed weapons were sold without proper background checks.

  1. Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
    If The NRAssholes have the right to have weapons of death, I have the right to live my life free of fear of those weapons of death. Disband The NRAsshole Today. Thank you Gun Control Now USA

    1. The Ninth Amendment to the United States Constitution repeals the Second Amendment. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of freedom is guaranteed in the Constitution. The 2nd Amendment is invalid and needs to be repealed.

      1. This is vitally important information and I think everybody who can read must read it and if someone cannot read then they need to have this read to them by someone else.

      2. The problem with Gun Rights People is that they can only read the 15 words that support their viewpoint and not the millions of words that invalidate their ignorant point of view.

    1. I am like some other people with this one – – – I believe in Freedom FOR guns as long as I am guaranteed Freedom FROM the fear of guns and what they can do to me,

      1. If people want to hunt deer, nobody has a problem with that. If people want to hunt other people with stolen handguns and assault rifles, the NRA takes an immoral position in defending their right to have people killed for a willful misreading of the US Constitution.

  2. The @NRA gives piece of shit, pathetic scumbag cocksuckers a bad name. They are only satisfied when people die, their flesh torn by bullets as they masturbate on the American Constitution.
