    deciding just what your "rights" are.

    They are certainly NOT the free-for-all many gun owners seem to want.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      I fully expect New York's SAFE act to be struck down. We'll see how much clarification we get out of the ruling.

      I suspect you will be very disappointed.

        I believe there may be some adjustments made to certain provisions of the law, but the NY SAFE Act will survive to achieve its purpose.
        Q: What does this law do?

        A: The NY SAFE Act is designed to make New York a safer place to live by reducing gun violence through common sense and reasonable reforms. The law respects the right to bear arms and the interest of hunters, sportsmen, and legal owners who use their guns appropriately. The law protects New Yorkers by:

        Keeping guns out of the hands of convicted felons and potentially dangerous mental health patients.

        Banning high capacity magazines and assault weapons.

        Ensuring all gun purchases are subject to a background check.

        Toughening criminal penalties on those who use illegal guns.

        Thank you for reminding me to post this here for all to see once again exactly what the NY SAFE Act is meant to accomplish.
