Here are two articles regarding gun control laws I've been sitting on before posting, due to the registration provisions in each of the laws (I was waiting for those periods to expire). I'll post bits from both. First, from New York, where a federal judge upheld provisions in NY's gun control law, despite a lawsuit challenging those provisions brought on by an NRA-affiliated group in New York. NPR tells the rest: Next comes Connecticut, where there was a mad dash to get firearms registered before January 1st, as anytime after that date they are deemed contraband. The Associated Press, via HuffPo, continues: Both of these laws came about as outcome from Sandy Hook. So I guess the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does have limits after all, despite consternation and disbelief from various groups. BL.
