…technically. Because they are making you take your guns to them.
“It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are unlawful to possess in New York City, as per NYC Administrative Code 10-306 (b).”
“You have the following options,” the letter explains.
“1. Immediately surrender your Rifle and/or Shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter.
2. Permanently remove your Rifle and/or Shotgun from New York City and provide the following…Disposition Report/Registration Certificate…Notarized statement of permanent removal…Utility bill or other proof of residency regarding the address where the firearm will be stored outside the City of New York.
3. You may call to discuss the matter if you believe your firearm is in compliance…”
Thus begins the confiscation game. The next time some far-left gun grabber tells you that registration will NOT lead to confiscation, and that firearms data bases are not a back door to registration, kindly inform them of Mayor Bloomberg and his Gauleiters in New York. I can think of no more powerful justification for the Second Amendment than a government that wants to disarm me.
