Andrew Cuomo Signs Gun Confiscation Into Law in New York

The legislation allows gun rights to be stripped from private citizens without any criminal conviction.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the latest New York law expressing the state’s hostility to the Second Amendment Monday.

The “Red Flag” law will take effect in 180 days.

The legislation allows the court system to seize legally owned firearms without a criminal conviction. Private individuals, law enforcement and school administration can request that judges impose gun confiscation on those they personally deem a threat to themselves or others.

The bill lays out a process through which a judge can issue an order preventing individuals deemed to be a security risk from either possessing or buying a gun for six days.

During that period, a hearing would be held in which the judge could extend the gun ownership ban for up to a year- all without any form of criminal conviction, and merely at the request on an individual who deems another to be a dangerous threat.

The backdoor, extrajudicial gun confiscation is gaining popularity across the country, as an alternative to policies that would ordinarily require criminal convictions to strip Americans of their Second Amendment Rights.

Even Republicans in nominally conservative states such as Arizona are pushing to implement systems that would allow for red flag gun confiscation.

New York already has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. Firearms deemed to be “assault weapons” are banned, and the state has imposed a licensing system for ownership of all guns.

Gun ownership in New York City itself is largely restricted to the wealthy and politically connected, as the city utilizes a complicated permit system that largely prices out middle and working-class law abiding citizens from gun ownership.

2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020

Gun grabbers take another L.

2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms. 

In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020. 

These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses. 

Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.

The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
