New York Second Amendment Supporters Dare Andrew Cuomo 'Come And Take It Away'

By Susan Duclos

New York gun owners and Second Amendment supporters are daring NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to come and take their guns as a massive effort is underway to organize a boycott of Cuomo's new gun laws.

Assault-rifle owners statewide are organizing a mass boycott of Gov. Cuomo’s new law mandating they register their weapons, daring officials to “come and take it away,” The Post has learned.

Via The NY Post:

Leaders of some of the state’s 300 gun clubs, gun dealers and Second Amendment organizations are organizing the boycott — and the heaviest interest is in Suffolk County, the Capital District and the Buffalo region, sources said.

The organizers point to a little-known guarantee of gun ownership contained in New York’s own “Civil Rights Law,” which was ratified the same year as the Constitution .

The state statute says the right to keep and bear arms “cannot be infringed” — stronger than the Second Amendment, which says it “shall not be infringed.’’

“They’re saying, ‘F--- the governor! F--- Cuomo! We’re not going to register our guns,’ and I think they’re serious. People are not going to do it. People are going to resist,’’ said State Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King, a member of the NRA board of directors. “They’re taking one of our guaranteed civil rights, and they’re taking it away.’’

Olesen said he’ll soon launch a nonprofit, to be called Save the Second Amendment Foundation,’ to fight the new law.

As Barack Obama and his gun grabbing cohorts start their national push for gun bans and magazine and clip ammunition limits, New York is ground zero for Second Amendment supporters.

According to sources, the NY Post reports that  "officials estimate at least 1 million semiautomatic rifles are owned" in New York alone, now imagine the number of Second Amendment supporters who will be joining in with this type of civil disobedience all across the country,  should any new gun laws be implemented which violate the constitutional right to bear arms.
