FoxNews is getting around to covering a story we brought to you last week.

The Truth About Guns also covered it (and was the lead that steered us to report on it).

Yes, Virginia, New York City is mailing gun confiscation letters to those who have registered long guns that will hold more than five rounds.  Yes, even .22 rimfire rifles.

Who says registration doesn’t lead to confiscation?

(FoxNews) – The New York City Police Department is taking aim at owners of shotguns and rifles capable of holding more than five rounds, demanding such guns be surrendered, altered or taken out of the city.

The demand came in the form of some 500 letters mailed out to owners of registered long guns that are in violation of a 2010 city ordinance. The first option for the letter’s recipient is to, “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.”

The notices, mailed Nov. 18, also give owners the options of demonstrating the gun has been moved out of NYPD jurisdiction or modified by a licensed gunsmith to comply with the law.

Although an NYPD spokeswoman told the law has been on the books since 2010, critics say this year is the first time the notices were so widely dispersed. The notice was first reported on the website

  1. This is what happens when the sheep keep voting in liberals and tyrant wanna bees like Bloomberg. REGISTER NOTHING EVER !!!!!!.

  2. All who support these laws must be removed from office for breaking the oath of office. They are commited to supporting the constitution as it stands and this action is in direct violation of the oath.

  3. I think it would be beneficial if, whenever there is some kind of registration, hordes of people submit phony registrations, and let them deal with the resulting paperwork that leads nowhere.
