New York, It is hard to believe that the New York State Constitution has language in one of its Provisions such as: Article 2, Section 4 of the New York Civil Rights Law provides: “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.”
New York State and the city of New York specifically have the most gun restrictive laws of any state or city in the country (the city of Chicago is about equal) New York of recent times has been at the center of the Second Amendment debate and the right to possess and bear arms. Although a CCW permit can be obtained in New York they are almost impossible to obtain.
When Mayor Michael Bloomberg became the 108th and current Mayor of New York City he brought with him his personal anti-gun agenda to the Mayor’s office. He has invested a significant portion of his personal wealth to his anti-gun and anti-second amendment agenda. He has openly called for the repeal of the Second Amendment or at a minimum that it be re-interpreted, apparently the Mayor sees himself on equal status as our Founding Fathers. He may be a successful businessman and politician yet his comments and views clearly show he is neither a true patriot nor a person who supports the constitution, and is not in the same league as our forefathers who formed our great nation.
New York, June 2013; A midlevel state court has rejected claims that New York's new gun law violates the state constitution because it was passed too quickly and restricts the rights of a citizen militia. The Appellate Division decision Wednesday upheld a judge's ruling that state law generally prohibits judicial review of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's justification for pushing the bill quickly through the Legislature on Jan. 15, instead of waiting the three days usually required. Cuomo used a "message of necessity" to skirt the waiting period, saying some guns and high-capacity magazines are so dangerous they needed to be restricted as soon as possible. Robert Schulz, who sued with more than 1,000 other plaintiffs, claims Cuomo's emergency justification was false. The law bans high-capacity magazines and tightens the definition of illegal "assault weapons."

New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg never seems satisfied to leave bad enough alone. He now seeks to model New York’s gun laws upon the Chicago murder capital fiasco, and is financing a $12 million propaganda campaign to sell his “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” program. While a major focus, at least for now, is to push for legislation mandating national background checks on all handgun sales, don’t expect the mayor’s anti-gun agenda to end there. His group has also circulated a factually-flawed report charging that the NRA has “kept the country in the dark about gun violence”.
Who is really keeping the nation in the dark? Perhaps the items that follow will shed some points of light on this matter. Tough Gun Laws Don’t Reduce Murder Rates, Criminals and Gangs Don’t Get Background Checks, Gun Laws Can’t Control Absentee Parenting, Gun Laws are Racist, Gun Laws are Sexist, Gun-Free Zones Invite Violence, Gun Laws are Dangerous, Statistics Don’t Support Anti-Gun Propaganda, “Assault Weapon” is a Politically-Loaded Term, This all per Forbes Magazine.
In a quote by the Mayor; he stated that no 19 year old can be trusted with a firearm? (Paraphrased) Maybe the Mayor should see how many 19 year old (or younger) US Army troopers or US Marines there are protecting us in combat today?
Mayor Michael Bloomberg “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” organization is losing support from his peers as is evident by the fact that Mayors from across the country are starting to fall away due to the organizations militant approach to the issues and its direct disrespect for the U.S. Constitution and specifically the Second Amendment.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-Second Amendment group, Mayors against Illegal Guns, has lost another member, this time the mayor of Rockford, Illinois--the state’s third largest city.
While New York City takes applications for new concealed carry (CCW) permits, it approves a very small percentage for the average citizen.
