New Yorkers who own 3 or more guns are now felons
Just like those who commit violent crimes with unregistered weapons — only without the “committed violent crimes” part. The opposite in fact: they keep their guns to protect themselves and their families against violent criminals who don’t much seem to care about gun control measures. Fairness!
But let’s not be too hard on the political class: to run a thriving police state, you need a steady supply of new criminals. Viewed from that perspective, laws that turn erstwhile law-abiding citizens into criminals with the stroke of a pen make perfect sense!
update: as Charles points out, felons aren’t allowed to own guns. Or vote. Or associate with other known felons. Which means, we’re going to need some shovel ready gulags.
update 2: Alex Kauffman on Twitter suggests that Owens has misread the law. I’m off to wrestling practice. If anyone can clarify while I’m gone, add a note in the comments.
