I really wish we had more politicians like Senator Steven McLaughlin. This is some great footage of the Senator on the floor of NY Senate where he destroys the arguments put forth by the ban proponents.

In the first video he references the wishlist of the Democrats. Not surprisingly, the opposition didn’t want this list shared. Here is the list:

Here is the list that the Democrats did not want to be made public:

1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
2. Confiscation of ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons

The collection of owner data:
