    Trump says spike in crime, high taxes could help him win New York in 2020 election

    I have no political party myself. I have a little of each. I would say mostly Libertarian but they lose me on alot of issues......the same issues that most have with them and the reason they arent more popular. Most of mt issues with the Libertarians comes from them wanting open borders and...

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    While going through the process I learned that over 70% of NICS denials are wrongfully applied.....even with a social security number. That is unacceptable in my opinion. Trump said he would fix all this. The Republicans had free reign to do this from 2016-2018 but did nothing.

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    A denial will still take years. As of right now, NICS is processing appeals from August of 2019. So if youre denied today, no human will look at your case for over a year. Then it takes forever for that process. No infringement here.

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    Its a long story ive told before but in short. Nobody knows for sure if I was rightly or wringly denied.....eventually NYS said I was good to go. I was denied because of a "NYS disqualifier", I was GTG with the feds. I had a "4th degree criminal possession of a weapon" conviction from when I was...

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    Right But my only other option is to not be a gun owner at all. Without the UPIN my odds of being denied again would be very high. Then another long wait and hope for another positive outcome. With all the technology....smartphones, apps, passwords...etc.......and the "lists", the government...

    I hear more and more of the BLM protests are coming to the suburbs

    Its a long way from the city to here. Even the suburbs are 20 miles away. The closest "big" city would be Buffalo which is 90 miles away. Erie PA is only 45 miles away but it seems pretty quiet there as far as "protesters". To get to my house they would have to be pretty desperate. And when they...

    Trump says spike in crime, high taxes could help him win New York in 2020 election

    Its funny when I talk to some of my more left leaning "friends".....or acquaintances. When we talk about the major political topics I hear some pretty interesting things. For instance I was recently talking to a self proclaimed progressive and democrat voter. After an hour of talking I found...

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    They already know what we all have. Ive told this stoey before but..... A few years ago a local school teacher was found shot to death in his yard. The cops had no clue who did it but they had the shotgun used in the crime. Two days later they had the perp in custody. The cops went to the local...

    Trump says spike in crime, high taxes could help him win New York in 2020 election

    Ive never seen a Clinton or Biden sign around here. But I see dozens of Trump signs a day. We are quite rural and very pro Trump. Not that it matters, my village has 450 people. :) Close by there 2 house about 50 yards from each other. Theres not another house for 1/4 mile but these 2 are...

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    But...... With a UPIN your appeal takes a week if denied. Without a UPIN a denial appeal will take years. You dont appeal a delay, they resolve themselves either through a proceed or denial. Over my almost 3 year endeavor with a NICS denial appeal I talked to many FFLs and government people. The...

    Delay (NICS/Background Check)

    For the UPIN (unique personal identification number) you have to send in your fingerprints and info. Then youre application is added to a pile and waits for human contact. The site says they are processing from Aug 2019 right now. A friend has been waiting 19 months just for a UPIN.

    New York State Defeats Challenge to Gun Licensing Laws

    Some gun groups are doing good things ive heard. I see the SAF winning cases in smaller courts. GOA has been taking cases to court. Their problem is they are small and must work smart.

    New York State Defeats Challenge to Gun Licensing Laws

    The problem is that for most people, being able to carry a handgun isnt worth the $50,000-$100,000 it can cost to fight it in court. With that money you can relocate to a friendlier state or county. What needs to happen is we need to find a good case and have gun owners from all over the state...

    New York State Defeats Challenge to Gun Licensing Laws

    I know, im just saying that a judge can just say that even though you cant get a handgun, you can still have a gun......so, not infringed. Even Heller says that some reasonable restrictions can apply.

    New York State Defeats Challenge to Gun Licensing Laws

    My main issue with all of this is the fact that NYS citizens do not have equal rights under the law. For instance....... A guy in WNY who is chronically unemployed, uses drugs, as multiple misdemeanor convictions and kicks his dog can carry a handgun from day one with zero training. Then, a guy...
