NY Gun ban a political stunt; causes more harm

New York's new SAFE act, touted as the toughest gun bill in the nation, is simply a horrible bill.

 Assault weapons possessed before the effective date must be registered within a year and re certified every five years.

What sort of idiot thinks a gun registry is going to prevent crazy people from gaining access to guns? The SAFE acts leaves the same major loophole as the Clinton assault weapons ban did in that it "grandfathers" the millions on guns already out there, including those not purchase in weapon store inventories. Further it requires therapists to report on their patients to the government, which bring up huge privacy issues and will ultimately reduce the number of people who go to a therapist for help. I think a lot of people hoped that some good in the form of real change would come out of the Newtown massacre. If this bill is what we have to look forward to then those kids died in vain.

Normally I don't read article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to check out and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, quite nice post.

At a certain stage the realization strikes through that one must either live outside of society's bonds or die of absolute boredom. There is no future or freedom in the circumscribed life and the only other life is complete rejection of the rules. There is no longer room for the soldier of fortune or the gentleman adventurer who can live both within and outside of society. Today it is all or nothing. To save my own sanity I chose the nothing.
