SEIU and Obama’s Organizing for Action Astroturf Against Gun Rights – Lobbying for NY SAFE Act; Update – Rally Postponed

Posted: February 24, 2013 by ShortTimer in Barack Obama, Government, Guns, Leftists, Progressives and Left, Second Amendment, Unions

Update: Rally was postponed.  There was a huge influx of 2A supporters who started going after them on Facebook and registering for seats and free meals.  Protesters for citizens’ rights don’t get free rides paid for by for America, but they decided to use the political machine to their advantage, stymying it for now.

Update 2: The NY Post was given other reasons by SEIU for why it was cancelled… which don’t quite jive with the story on FB.

From Organizing For Action, aka


Governor Cuomo and our legislature passed the “NY SAFE ACT.” It will reduce gun violence in our state. Predictably, it is under attack by the National Rifle Association and allied groups. :::We are joining with the SEIU 1199 to lobby in Albany.

Freepers are wondering if this is even legal.

The NY SAFE Act is detailed here at American Thinker as “the rape of the Second Amendment”.  Keep in mind this is the same act that NY State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin exposed as part of a confiscation scheme, and the same law that was rushed through in the dark of night so quickly that even NY cops are violating the law by carrying their service weapons.  The anti-rights forces so hate that citizens have rights that they didn’t even stop to carve out an exception for the state’s enforcers.

For a quick summary/recap of NY SAFE from when it first reared its tyrannical head, this is what the bill covers:

The text of the New York bill can be found here.  But a quick summary would be this on ammo:

  • All ammunition purchases have to be through an FFL
  • Ban on internet ammunition purchase
  • Background checks for all ammo purchases
  • All sales of ammo to be reported to police

And this on guns:

  • Ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds made before 1994
  • Ban on magazines that can hold more than 7 rounds
  • “Grandfathered” 10 round magazines cannot be loaded with more than 7 rounds – or face charges
  • Registration for all “assault weapons”
  • Registration for all handguns
  • Registration required every five years
  • Mental health reporting which is to be checked against a non-existent database on citizens
  • One-feature test for “assault weapons” (no detachable magazines, no pistol grips, no threaded barrels – as written includes adjustable choke shotguns)
  • Bushmaster AR banned by name

Also, “assault weapon” possession in NY is now a Class B felony.  Possession of an actual machinegun is only a third degree Class D felony.  An evil scary non-machinegun can get you 25 years.  A real machinegun can get you 7.

This draconian near-total ban (and it’s only a step to a total ban) is being supported by the President’s “Organizing For Action” perpetual campaign machine and the SEIU with their professional agitators.

The president’s own apparatus is actively lobbying to destroy the Constitutionally-enumerated natural right to keep and bear arms; almost as if we now have an institutional revolutionary party.  Sounds familiar.
