Civil Disobedience In NY

There is one purpose for a gun registry. One.

Good on the folks in NY who've decided to not give the state the rope with which to hang them.

Owners of assault-style weapons were supposed to have registered their guns by Tuesday.

But there is no way of knowing exactly how many of these weapons there are in the state and how many were registered under the NY SAFE Act.

The state refuses to say how many were registered, claiming it is confidential information protected by the law.

Gun-rights advocates estimate compliance will be less than 10 percent.

And in Erie County, the sheriff says he will not force his deputies to enforce registration.


Crazy Rednecks Bring Evil NRA Into Schools To Teach Kids About Guns

Guess the state.

Headline: NRA-sponsored gun-safety program set to go in Westford schools

Former schoolteacher Marilyn Frank has big plans for firearms-safety education in town.

Frank, 79, who served in the school district for 29 years and for a decade as health-education coordinator, said she doesn't own a gun but she wants to help remove polarization around the subject of gun safety. In December, she proposed bringing the National Rifle Association-sponsored program Eddie Eagle back to the local elementary schools. The program, approved by the School Committee, will start early next month.

"You want everyone to buy into this. I think this is a message that everyone can come together for, caring about the kids," she said. "That was what this is all about. Are we going to save anybody? I don't know. But when I put in birth- control explanations (in the schools), I didn't promise nobody would get pregnant. You don't know, but you just hope."

Turns out there are still a few sane people in Westford, MA after all.
