It’s True: Government is Aggressively Engaged in Gun Confiscation In the US!-Posted on Fredom Outpost-By Joshua Cook-On November 30, 2013:
A report from TruthAboutGuns.com is claiming that New York gun owners are being sent letters from the N.Y.P.D. demanding them to surrender their guns which have feeding capacities that violate the 5-round rule.
Below is an excerpt from the New York Ammunition and Firearms:
According to Kit Daniels, “The New York Police Department is now sending out notices to registered gun owners demanding that they give up their firearms, clear proof that gun registration leads to outright confiscations.”
Earlier this year, Canadian journalist Brian Lilley from Sun News warned Americans during his broadcast that gun “registration will lead to confiscation.”
Lilley described how the Canadian government systematically confiscated firearms from law abiding citizens: (1) create a national gun registry to track the sales of firearms, (2) pass laws that ban certain firearms, (3) notify gun owners that they have 30 days to surrender their registered firearms to local police.
New York lawmakers have been lobbying for gun confiscation both locally and nationally. Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin ® exposed N.Y. lawmakers’ plans to confiscate firearms earlier this year, see video below.

In an interview, N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo stated that gun “confiscation could be an option,” regarding new gun control laws. Now gun owners are seeing his promise of gun confiscation unfolding before their eyes.
In April, the California state legislature passed a bill approving $24 million in order to confiscate an estimated 40,000 handguns and semi-automatic firearms from felons and those who the state deems emotionally unfit to own firearms.
California uses paramilitary teams called Armed & Prohibited Persons System (APPS) to inspect homes and confiscate firearms.
Former DOJ Special Agent, Greg Cameron told Ginny Simone that the majority of those people targeted in these raids should not have been targeted.
Cameron said, “95% to 98% of the firearms we confiscated, I really questioned why we were confiscating them. This whole freakin’ APPS thing is not doing anyone any good. This has amounted to nothing less than “gun confiscation under the guise of safety.”
Cameron described what they would do in a typical raid in order to enter a home without a warrant.
“We would show up with way too many agents for the circumstance, and it didn’t make any sense; there was no need for it. And yeah, the whole place would be surrounded, and absolutely, there’s an intimidation factor there that makes people allow — or think that they need to allow — law enforcement into their house. And if we found out there were guns in the house, then we would confiscate them. I think it is, overbroad, overreaching. I think it’s confiscation under the guise of safety. That’s absolutely what I think it is. And I think this is the crux of the whole issue. You need to know what you can and can’t do when confronted with law enforcement, especially in your own home. I mean, that’s the premise of the Fourth Amendment,” Cameron said.

THE GUN CONFISCATION NOTICE AN NYC RESIDENT REPORTEDLY RECEIVED WILL LIKELY SEND CHILLS DOWN YOUR SPINE!-Posted on The Blaze-By Jason Howerton-On November 27, 2013:
New York City has reportedly started sending out confiscation notices ordering gun owners to “immediately surrender” rifles and/or shotguns capable of holding more than five rounds of ammunition. It is illegal to possess a rifle or shotgun with the capacity to hold more than five rounds in the city, according to NYC Administrative Code 10-306 (b).
An alleged notice sent to an NYC resident, dated Nov. 18, offers the gun owner the following options:
1. Immediately surrender your Rifle and/or Shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter.
2. Permanently remove your Rifle and/or Shotgun from New York City…
3. You may call to discuss the matter if you believe your firearm is in compliance, or you may request the option to bring your firearm to a licensed gunsmith for a permanent modification and certification proving that it is permanently modified and in compliance.
While the confiscation notice, reported by the Truth About Guns, very well may be a normal occurrence in New York City, gun owners in firearm-friendly states like Texas or Arizona will probably have a hard time even imagining receiving such a letter from authorities over a rifle or shotgun that could potentially hold more than five rounds.
The notice above deals directly with New York City gun regulations, but there are also concerns of a potential state-wide gun confiscation effort in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act.
In addition to outlawing an array of semi-automatic rifles, the SAFE Act restricted ammunition magazines to seven rounds, down from 10. The law was later changed to allow gun owners to purchase magazines with the capacity to hold 10 rounds, however, only seven rounds can be loaded unless the firearm is being used at a gun range or shooting competition.
The SAFE Act also creates a more comprehensive database of people barred from owning guns, and makes New York the first state to require background checks to buy bullets. The system was also said to help flag customers who buy large amounts of ammo. In another provision, therapists, doctors and other mental health professionals will be required to tell state authorities if a patient threatens to use a gun illegally. The patient’s weapon could then be taken away.
It wasn’t immediately clear how aggressively the state of New York is enforcing the new magazine restrictions or if law enforcement planned to send out similar notices to the one above to gun owners across the state. Phone calls made late Wednesday night to the Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office, the NY State Police and the NYPD were not returned.

BUYING GUNS ON BLACK FRIDAY BECOMES TRADITION UNDER OBAMA!-Posted on Big Governement-By AWR HAWKINS-On November 30, 2013:
Although much of the gun control push under President Obama has failed to result in new laws, it has succeeded in creating a new tradition where shoppers scoop up guns on Black Friday so they can place them under the tree on Christmas Day.
Consider the numbers: in 2008, ABC News reported 97,848 background checks on Black Friday. In 2009, the numbers remained somewhat static but then began to grow exponentially as the Obama administration and Congressional Democrats began to flex their muscles. By 2011, there were 129,166 background checks on Black Friday alone.
As the National Shooting Sports Foundation reported, the jump in 2011 marked “a 32.01 percent increase over” the sales on 2008 Black Friday—the year Obama was first elected.
In 2012, the number of Black Friday background checks rose to 154,873. Remember that because numerous guns can be purchased with each background check, these figures don’t even begin to indicate how many firearms may actually have been sold.
This information is not lost on retailers like Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, and Wal-Mart. Cabela’s literally gave away shotguns to early bird customers in some cities on Black Friday—those receiving the guns went through a background check—and Huffington Post reported that Bass Pro Shops was running hot deals on Bushmaster AR-15 rifles.
Wal-Mart ran a “Manager’s Special Sale” that translated into “20 percent off select rifles and shotguns.”
Buying a firearm on Black Friday has fast become an American tradition under President Obama.
