    ALBANY, N.Y. - New York has become the first state to dramatically stiffen its gun laws after last month's massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

    With Gov. Andrew Cuomo's signature Tuesday, parts of the measure that sped through the Legislature in two days


    take effect immediately.

    The law calls for a tougher assault weapons ban and provisions to try to keep guns away from mentally ill people who make threats.

    It also calls for background checks on ammunition, a ban on large magazines, stiffer penalties for gun crimes and background checks even on private sales, such as those at gun shows.

    Mental health professionals will be required to report any patient who they believe to be a threat to use a gun illegally. The patient's gun could be confiscated.


    Highlights of NY gun control bill --

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Provisions in a sweeping gun control bill before the New York Legislature:

    -Further restrict assault weapons to define them by a single feature, such as a pistol grip. Current law requires two features.

    -Make the unsafe storage of assault weapons a misdemeanor.

    -Mandate a police registry of assault weapons.

    -Establish a state registry for all private sales, with a background check done through a licensed dealer for a fee, excluding sales to immediate relatives.

    -Require a therapist who believes a mental health patient made a credible threat to use a gun illegally to report the threat to a mental health director who would then have to report serious threats to the state Department of Criminal Justice Services. A patient's gun could be taken from him or her.

    -Ban the Internet sale of assault weapons.

    -Require stores that sell ammunition to register with the state, run background checks on buyers of bullets and keep an electronic database of bullet sales.

    -Restrict ammunition magazines to seven bullets, from the current national standard of 10. Current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. Someone caught with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.

    -Require that stolen guns be reported within 24 hours. Otherwise, the owner would face a possible misdemeanor.

    -Increase sentences for gun crimes including for taking a gun on school property.

    -Increase penalties for shooting first responders, called the "Webster provision." Two firefighters were killed when shot by a person who set a fire in the western New York town of Webster last month. The crime would be punishable by life in prison without parole.

    -Limit the state records law to protect handgun owners from being identified publicly. The provision would allow a handgun permit holder a means to maintain privacy under the Freedom of Information law.

    -Require pistol permit holders or those who will be registered as owners of assault rifles to be recertified at least every five years to make sure they are still legally able to own the guns.

    It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen
    to set brush fires in peoples minds! Revolution is Action upon Revelation!

    The small green parakeet, Tito, was flung helplessly from the cage, landing on the floor. When a girl screamed, the officer sneerd:
    "F*** THE BIRD !!!"
    ...and stomped on it with his jackboot. READ MORE: http://www.policestateusa.com/2013/n...lugo-parakeet/

    I think the American People will highly resent it and

    I yearned for a reason, I sought and I fought only to realize that there are no reasons but the ones we choose.
    As in all things, choose wisely. You are, after all, the aggregate of your choices.

    Choose your reason, become you're reason

    The Rubicon has been crossed. The govt. of NY has gone insane.
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    Duty is the most sublime word in the English language. Do your duty in all things. You can not do more than your duty. You should never wish to do less than your duty.
