Rights Delayed, Rights Denied: New York Signs 30-Day Waiting Period for Gun Purchases

Published

on

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a 30-day waiting period requirement into law last week.

This waiting period applies to firearms purchases that are not instantly approved by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

In a statement during the bill’s signing, Cuomo proclaimed “For too long gun violence has plagued communities across our nation and while the federal government turns a blind eye, New York continues leading the way forward to protect our families and our children.”

Generally speaking, when a gun dealer runs a background check on a buyer, the system will produce three results:

  1. The buyer passed the background check.
  2. The buyer failed the background check
  3. FBI needs more time to carry out the check.

Background checks are frequently delayed is because the buyer has a common name.

Current law stipulates that dealers wait for three days before completing a firearm sale to a customer if the FBI is not able to finish the background check.

Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris sponsored this bill and believes that this waiting period will save lives by keeping guns out of the hands of criminals.

“Common sense gun safety reform will save lives, period. Stronger background checks will keep guns away from dangerous people,” Gianaris declared at the bill’s signing ceremony.

New York lawmakers cited the Charleston shooting of 2015 as their motivation for passing this bill. In this case, a white supremacist entered the church and killed nine church members.

John Crump of Ammoland raises some interesting points about this rationale.

The New York legislators assert that the shooter bought his gun before the FBI completed his background check. They argue that if there was a 30-day waiting period, the FBI could have kept the perpetrator from acquiring a handgun.

Crump argues that the legislators’ argument is fallacious:

The truth is the FBI approved the purchase of the gun even though the killer was a prohibited person. He had a conviction on a felony drug charge. An unnamed FBI examiner turned up the arrest, but FBI did not have a record of the conviction. If South Carolina had a law similar to New York’s new law, it would have not prevented the shooting.

New York is one of the most anti-gun states in the nation, so the passage of this law is to be expected.

According to Guns & Ammo magazine, New York is ranked in 51st place—dead last—for best states for gun owners.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America

Published

on

LifeSite News reported that Microsoft founder Bill Gates believes life will not be the same after the Wuhan Virus subsides.

However, there’s a catch.

Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”

During an  interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.

“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”

In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.

“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”

The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.

Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.

“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED  conference.

Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.

During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.

Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.

Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.

“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.

In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.

“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”

Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.

As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.

Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
