…considering what’s going on now in NY
Burglars broke into the house in New City, New York, on Wednesday and pried open two safes, before leaving with another one.
The criminals escaped with two handguns, two pistol permits, cash, savings bonds and jewelry. The firearms were in the stolen safe.
The head of the White Plains Police Benevolent Association, Robert Riley, has been one of the fiercest critics of the Journal News map, saying it puts the lives of police and ordinary residents in potential danger.
“The Journal News printed a virtual treasure map for criminals,” Riley said Monday. “It lets the bad guys know who is vulnerable, due to not having a gun permit, and where to go if they wanted a gun.”
Well I think lawsuit talk is premature nor would I be all that worried after all didn’t NY just pass a sweeping new set of gun laws. I’m sure the burglars seeing this will swiftly see the error of their ways
And if not apparently gunowners in NY have options…
One ad says in classic Western script: “WANTED: Law abiding New York gun owners seeking lower taxes and greater opportunities.” Clicking on the ad leads to a Facebook page touting the virtues of Texas, including the fact that the state has no income tax so “you’ll be able to keep more of what you earn and use that extra money to buy more ammo.”
After the last census Texas went from 34 to 38 electoral votes and NY dropped from 31-29. After a decade of this nonsense it will be interesting to see what the numbers are come 2022.
