NY Officials Are Demanding They Register Their Guns – Here’s What They Did With the Registration Forms

Gun rights advocates in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., reportedly burned nearly one thousand gun registration forms to ashes in a clear act of civil disobedience.

Under the hastily-passed SAFE Act, Gun owners have until April 15 to register their so-called semi-automatic rifles that fall under the state’s own definition of “military-style assault weapons.” The forms they burned are the very forms the state wants them to turn in registering their firearms.

Instead, gun owners rallied at the Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge 161 to torch the forms in a “symbolic protest,” the Post-Star reports.

Jake Palmateer, co-founder of NY2A, the gun rights group that organized the protest, said the group stands against gun registration because the “evidence is clear that registration leads to confiscation.”
