The citizens who complied with New York City's laws on the registration of firearms are now learning the hard lesson that the National Rifle Association and others have warned about.
Using the lists of registered weapons, New York City is sending letters to owners advising them to turn in their weapons or face the consequences. (SWAT raid in the middle of the night?)
So when the federal government tries this un-Constitutional scheme, remember the lessons being learned by the citizens of "The People's Republic of New York City" about their tyrannical city government.
It’s kind of hard to feel sorry for them, however. They were dumb enough to elect a Marxist for their new mayor:
NEW YORK CITY CONFISCATING RIFLES AND SHOTGUNS
The Daily Caller
December 6, 2013
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences.
New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners.
“It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are unlawful to possess in New York City, as per NYC Administrative Code 10-306 (b).”
