If you are a supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a NY resident, you know how NY state continues to find ways to chip away at your 2nd amendment right. With loose reinterpreted variations, yes think about that for minute, of the meaning of the 2nd, filling the state legislative body with anti-2A representatives and stacking the court system to favor ant-gun legislation, the liberals in NY are still not satisfied. Now they're going after our 4th amendment right and due process. One of the well know but mostly unverified tactics the Liberal Democrats use is bullying and scare tactics against those that would oppose them. In a recent interview with Spectrum news, Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul made it very clear the she and the Governor would expose the republican senators that voted no on the NY "Red Flag' bill and they would pay for it.

This bill has already passed the assembly and is on it's way to the NY senate. So while the democrats have the NY senate majority, 32 to 31, the republican still control the senate until the legislative session end this June. The question is who is going to delay the vote until the legislative session resumes. Understanding the tactics the anti-2nd Amendment legislators use, there's no surprise that a twisting of our 4th amendment right is again being used to reduce the our right to bear arms. What we are looking at is the modern battle of our constitutional rights. Are our rights a strict construction as Thomas Jefferson considered them or are these rights a part of the living document as the liberals prefer to call it and open to loose interpretations?
