This scenario has happen all over New York State. A man, to protect his identity, I’ll call him Fred, was feeling depressed, and he went to the doctor seeking help. One of his doctor's, he does not know which one, sent a letter to New York State. This triggered a police raid of Fred's home. The police seized every firearm that Fred owned. There was no hearing, no due process, Fred could not plead his case, or face his accuser. Instead his home was invaded and his valued possessions taken from him. This series of events violated Fred's Right to privacy with his Doctor, i.e. HIPPA Laws, his right to be secure in his home and his property, and his right to due process under the law. This is the peril that any New Yorker faces because of the SAFE Act whenever he or she goes to see the doctor. This includes you. You could go to the doctor and find an armed team of police waiting for you when you get home. They will ransack your house and steal your belongings. It will not matter whether or not you have done anything wrong. It won't matter whether the old .22 rifle they take is a family heirloom. They will take it from you, and you will never be able to get it back. They will not even tell you who secretly told the State to violate your rights. If you are as lucky as Fred, a Judge will call you into court and explain why this happened to you, before he tells you there is nothing he can do and he has no choice in the matter. Otherwise you will be left without explanation. The politicians that tell you they are not coming after your guns, are lying. If you are shocked that your 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Amendment rights can be so easily stripped from you, then you need to join the Shooters Committee on Political Education (SCOPE) now.
Misusing the "Message of Necessity" and State legislators passing the 39-page law with only 22 minutes of review and skipping the required three-day review process — an issue Wayne County Supervisors unanimously found “deeply disturbing".
Specifically the 2nd, 4th and 14th Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America and the New York State Constitution. Albany IS NOT serving the people - they are serving themselves and their own political agendas. This is not proper representation.
What began as a routine ATF letter to a U.S. Federal Firearms Licensee in the spring of 1997, just a few months later rapidly turned into an international circus on gun control with President Clinton and U.S. Senator Feinstein in the center ring – this, right at the time that a young Andrew Cuomo was dispatched by his New York governor father to work for the Clinton Administration...
