New York City Sends Gun Confiscation Letters Stating “Immediately Surrender Your Rifle”

NYC alarms with notice: ‘Immediately surrender your rifle’ - Washington Times

If these copies and reports are accurate, it look like NYC is sending out gun confiscation letters demanding registered gun owners turn over their guns or r permanently out of the city.

New York City authorities have been sending out notices to residents who own guns that now violate new ammunition capability laws, demanding they relinquish their weapons — and even though the notifications may just be standard police procedure, the text is a shocker.

At issue: Weapons that hold more than five rounds of ammo, The Blaze reported.

One such notice to a city resident, dated Nov. 18 and posted on The Blaze, reads: “Immediately surrender your rifle and/or shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter. Permanently remove your rifle and/or shotgun from New York City.”

The letter also advises that the recipient “may call to discuss the matter if you believe your firearm is in compliance, or you may request the option to bring your firearm to a licensed gunsmith for a permanent modification and certification proving that it is permanently modified and in compliance.”

The Associated Press reported that it wasn’t clear if police were taking aggressive steps to root out those who ignored the demands of the letter.

  1. What ever happened to the 2nd amendment

  2. Went the same way some of our other rights have gone, and where the rest will follow.

  3. What complete crap…. even if I did live in NYC, and my shot gun held more than 5 rounds, I still wouldn’t surrender it…. I’d rather move out of there…

    So glad I don’t live there. No 2nd amendment applies obviously. :(

  4. What the 2nd Amendment doesn’t apply in NY.

  5. This is what any Registration leads to. I am so happy I don’t live in NY, IL, or CA. This is just the first step and an example of what Obama, Feinstein and Bloomberg want Nationwide.

  6. This is America, boys and girls. It’s not a piece of land, it’s a political miracle — the only nation in the world with an anti-government Constitution. But this miracle is conditional and dependant on the knowledge, courage, and self-reliance of its citizens. Freedom will not flourish in a nation of ignorant fools and irresponsible weaklings. To live free takes knowledge, nerve, and personal responsibility.

    Don’t have time to educate yourself on your Rights [and learn some Law]? Don’t have courage enough to fight for your Rights? Want to “play nice” and trust your government? Then you are a lousy excuse for an American. You will lose your Rights AND your freedoms and rightfully so. [In fact, you will be contributing to the loss of OUR Rights and OUR freedoms also - for by not standing up for YOUR Rights, you are condemning ALL AMERICANS to the loss of ALL OUR RIGHTS! -BeWISE] http://djacksback.newsvine.com/_news/2009/03/01/2491555-to-whom-do-constitutional-rights-belong-to-the-bellegerent?lite
