And so it goes...

“People convicted of domestic abuse in New York will now have to turn over all firearms, not just handguns, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday.”

No more sympathy for them than telling a drunk that hits someone they can't own a car

As much as I despise Governor Cuomo I can't fault him for signing this one. Like the others said the key word here is convicted. Merely being accused is something else.

You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Didn’t the Lautenberg Act already prohibit possesion? Or is this the follow up where it clarifies confiscation?

Losing "rights" over simple assault is a slippery slope. This is a misdemeanor, not a felony.

I thought that those convicted of Domestic Violence were already banned from possessing firearms by Federal law.

What does this really accomplish?

I hope, "Convicted" is the operative word. So many women file FALSE TROs during divorces, which obviously falls under DV. I know people have lost their firearms and were Not CONVICTED of anything.

I guess we should be quiet on this one because the word “domestic abuse” is involved.

Far as I know a conviction of Domestic Violence prohibits you from possessing ANY firearm, including muzzle loaders. Also prohibits you from living in a home where other people's guns are present.

I think we should read Cuomo's comments a bit more closely. He remarked that "9 out of 10" mass shooters were convicted of domestic violence or abuse or had "disparaged" women. He said that specifically - "disparaged".

We all know how these folks operate. They expand the "Red Flag" gun removal law from immediate family, to anyone living with the gunowner, to neighbor and now CA wants to include co-worker and employee. In the anti-gun world if any gunowners so much as says anything "disparaging" (against women but certainly to include, gay, illegal alien, etc) they'll want to remove their guns.

He included disparaging for a reason, I'll bet the anti-gunners were listening.
