"A lot of people say, 'Why do you need these guns?'" said Assemblyman James Tedisco, a Schenectady Republican. "It's part of the freedoms and liberties we have. ... It's for our public safety. It's to protect us from our own government."

let the overeactions begin....the criminal will just say " i'll just have to carry more clips "..duh..no matter how many laws you pass the criminal will still break them. how about sharpening the "teeth" to existing laws like actually carrying out the death penalty,no more early releases for crimes commited with a gun, or illegal possession,or purchase.ect....don't overeach and punish good citizens instead of the few who terrorize soo many.....
