Government really is trying to take your guns


These are just a few examples of laws and proposed bills that are being pushed by governors and legislators across the United States. Look at the frenzy in Washington with President Obama, Uncle Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein to ban and register firearms. Sam, these are not folks at the local newspaper, gun shop or equipment store. These people run the country.

My friend, those who would disarm America are too smart to start kicking down doors. They would love nothing more, but then their true intent would be known. Instead, the Second Amendment will suffer a “death by a thousand cuts.” You say, “No one is coming to take your guns.” I say that they are doing it one cut at a time, but the end result will be the same.

Note: Help us stop the NY Safe Act. The fifth annual NYS Rifle and Pistol Association Lobby Day and Rally is in Albany on Thursday. Buses leave from the Oneonta Bus Lines from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Call Jim Losie for details at 432-6452.
