In the wake of the long ordeal of Malaysian politician Anwar Ibrahim, whose career was derailed for years by legal battles and convictions for sodomy, a campaign against LGBT people in Malaysia has been ramping up since Prime Minister Mohamad Mahathir came to power this year. I remember the financial crisis very well.
Actually, I remember it starting in At the time, I was working at a very large Wall Street investment bank. As the trade wars with Beijing slog on, we're learning that China may have infected thousands of American computers in business and in government with tiny microchips in a massive exercise in espionage.
As I write this, hundreds of people are converging on the streets of Washington, D. Capitol with T-shirts saying "Believe Women. The global financial world is changing, as President Trump would say, big league.
This week marks the next-level escalation of the trade war between the United States and China, as POTUS attempts to roll back decades of the hollowing out of American manufacturing in favor of emerging markets in the Pacific. A recent tour of the Balkans proved a potent reminder once again of the importance of this region to U. It will only cost millions — and all for virtually nothing!
There are literally millions upon millions of large capacity magazines — those over 7 rounds — and guns that hold more than 7 rounds that are still legal with this law. And also ammunition, loose or in boxes, which is just lying around in garages, cellars, attics and gun cabinets that will never be sold as part of this law so, in effect, the whole law will be rendered useless and unenforceable while also creating criminals out of otherwise law abiding citizens.
Would someone please explain who is going to gun owners homes and check whether they only have seven rounds in their nine or ten round magazines?
Is that even legal or Constitutional? Or, for that matter, who will be assigned to inspect ones home for magazines that hold more than 10 rounds? When high capacity magazines are banned and made illegal, and we are required to register with the State the firearms that accepted them, will there then be home inspections and possibly even fees for registration?
Did you Senators even ask these questions? Did you even read what you voted on? Or did you call Nancy Pelosi? At least that was nice; it saved from banning and registration the high capacity, 8 round magazine used in the M1 Garand, our battle rifle that won WWII for us.
Again, back to basics; this is the year minus 50 years, equals ; so any rifle developed or made prior to is exempt? What does the 50 years exemption mean? The law as written is just stupid. Are those omitted from registration because they are collectible and a great gun for targeting shooting, but also look exactly like the 10 round semi-automatic Bushmaster, which will now be banned?
That same gun that was shown to be used in the Newtown, CT school massacre, but was actually never used, it was in the shooters vehicle while four handguns were actually used in the carnage; and is it to be banned because of the way it looks? All this history is simply to point out the ridiculous. This rifle accepts a 10 round, detachable magazine it is, or was, a legal firearm to sell or own without registration a few days ago.
Does any legislator think that a ban on these from the American people will make these and other countless magazines disappear? Line up, if you do, I have a bridge in Brooklyn at a real bargain price. The line to show support was, at times, four abreast and an eighth mile long.
The line stretched from the two inside ticket booths to around the City Center, then back to the Old Bryan Inn. Supporters of our Second Amendment rights stood in that line for over two hours. And, Cathy and I, thank each and every one of you, we are absolutely humbled. Last weekend you legislators threatened our rights and our supporters turned out; all of us plus more, will turn you all out in November.
All you people had to do was keep the pre-ban law as it was, forget the stupid 7 round, anti-commerce magazine restriction and not even consider the really dumb money pit portion about background checks on ammunition, you could have a good law without much controversy.
Why are you legislators so stupid? The exhibitors inside were actually exhausted from the experience and many, many deals were made. Any and all gun collectors, hunters, shooters, historians or simply Second Amendment supporters are welcomed into our organization for mutual support, camaraderie and friendship.
On Sunday, Kathy Marchione, NYS Senator from my home district which covers Mechanicville and our show location in Saratoga Springs, spoke to the large crowd about her resistance for the proposed law banning certain guns and magazines. Some portions of this law are good, as I stated, but some are downright disgraceful and probably unconstitutional. Kathy has a petition on her website seeking support from gun owners and is telling them she intends to place a bill in the Senate to have the law or at least the parts that deal with magazines and so called assault rifles, the bad parts, overturned or rewritten.
He spoke to the crowd about an undue rush to judgment in passing this law without debate and asked that each legislator be given the required three day period to read and digest the contents. From the swift procedure last Monday evening we could all see that the law was extremely rushed.
I ask now that you legislators who voted for it, so you could read what is in it, now rescind the worse parts of it. If not, your largest constituencies will rescind your traveling rights to Albany. Thanks be to you, you stalwart group who stood up for the rights of us, the cream of the crop of New York State citizens. We can all support honest, actual protections, or good new laws, that have been thought out, debated and agreed upon.
Good laws can actually make a difference in society but laws which are useless, overbearing and downright dumb, need to go. So, the controversy that sparked the "assault rifle" ban in NY State actually never happened This show was a major milestone for many reasons beyond the fact that it has been held for the past 30 years.
This show was under significant scrutiny locally as well as at a state and national level with suggestions that it should be cancelled. This show is one of the largest in Upstate New York, including over tables and 80 dealers.
The show includes a variety of merchandise from items dating back prior to the American Revolution up to modern hunting and sporting firearms as well as various equipment, ammunition, books and more. Besides the variety of merchandise there were also organizations collecting donations for our active military and Veterans.
Aid our Veterans, a Washington, D. NEACA donates space to both organizations on a regular basis. The show brought attendees from as far away as Ohio, as well as thousands of locals from Saratoga, Schenectady, Albany, Rensselaer, Washington, Warren, Fulton, and Montgomery counties.
This record crowd waited patiently, sometimes for over two hours on a line that stretched over an eighth of a mile. Even with all the people on both sides of this debate, it was peaceful and very orderly. It was beyond any expectations I had. Given this outpouring of support, I hope it sends a clear message that this show matters to the public and that the second amendment matters. Dave and Cathy Petronis, who run the NEACA and this show, would like to thank the organizations and people that put in significant effort to make this show happen.
New East Coast Arms Collectors is a member organization that promotes the responsible collecting and use of firearms through a variety of Gun and Collector Shows throughout New York State. The organization is members strong and growing, and has been in existence since For more information about this show, the organization or other shows they sponsor, contact us , sales neaca. The Saratoga Springs City Center is at the core of a unique conference complex formed by the 32, square foot Center and adjoining room Saratoga Hilton Hotel.
Our key location in downtown Saratoga Springs offers attendees the opportunity to stroll the streets of our Victorian City, enjoy the many unique shops and fine restaurants. I Am Getting Tired Tired of what, you may ask? Of the anti-gunners, the hysterical left and the do-it-for-the-good-feeling-we-get politicians who knee-jerk their reactions to see if they can placate the loudest shrieks to ban this or confiscate that!
The link below is a call to that majority to do just that; to rise today to tell the NYS Legislators to listen and be warned. We have had enough, already … and we are not going to take it anymore! If you wish to see many more anti-gun legislation proposed, go to the NYS. It is getting so knee-jerking that I think their brains are falling out. Ban what, million guns in the hands of the American populace? Good luck there, my good friends.
Being sensitive to their request and of the situation as a whole, in no way negates our staunch avocation to our right to own and collect guns; and of advocating our rights according to the Second Amendment, it should not be infringed!
Stand up and be counted … because all the politicians do is count the numbers who will be supporting them in their coming election. Make sure at this count they have to use more than their fingers and toes!
When you come to our show this weekend please keep your firearms in cases so as not to walk the busy streets of Saratoga Springs with threatening-looking weapons slung on shoulders. Let us be sensitive to the wishes of the City Council and the past and present rules and ordinances of the city. There will probably be protesters near the entrances so, again, please be civil and do not antagonize so as to reflect badly on our NEACA Arms Fair or on the gun fraternity in general.
Still Good ol' News You're going to like this! Dave has been so busy recently, he forgot about his world in cyberspace If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it. In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion.
Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some. When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a pound woman on equal footing with a pound mugger, a year old retiree on equal footing with a year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunken guys with baseball bats.
The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender. There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly. Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways.
Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force, watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker.
If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable. When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone.
The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.
It removes force from the equation So, the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally armed and can only be persuaded, never forced.
Very nicely put into perspective for the gun grabbers! Democratic senators offer gun control amendment for cyber security bill. Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cyber security bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers. Shortly after the Cyber security Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen.
The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. The amendment is identical to a separate bill sponsored by Lautenberg. Feinstein was the sponsor of the assault weapons ban, which expired in The proposed amendment would only affect sales and transfers after the law took effect.
Schumer defended the Brady law and assault weapons ban on the floor Thursday evening, perhaps in preparation for the coming fight with Republicans and gun rights activists. Schumer suggested that both the left and right find common ground. He suggested that Democrats make it clear that their goal is not to repeal the Second Amendment. Schumer also pointed out that it would be reasonable for the right to recognize that background checks on those buying guns is necessary — as called for in the Brady law.
Next week the Senate is expected to debate and vote on proposed amendments to the cyber security bill. I guess there are some people who actually read the member letters I send out for our New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates; the last and most current one was about the ongoing saga of the possibility of the elimination of New York State Gun shows.
Some of you have gone the extra mile and I want to recognize several members here and now. Just got off the phone with Brian Sherwood in Tupper Lake who called to request an extra table for display at our Clifton Park Show and he explained how one of his friends and one of our members was on a phone campaign urging members and dealers to either send a contribution to the war chest or take an extra table at Clifton Park.
After my prodding he told me the caller was Terry Perrigo, also from Tupper Lake, apparently, Terry is going the extra ten miles. Before she uttered a word and I saw there was no application for the upcoming show I knew exactly what the letter said and what the check was for.
While she read it you could have seen tears in my eyes. The letter is below. I know all the above named would not want me to even mention what they do but I must.
There are many more among the nameless who contribute in a large or small way to make our shows a success. I am proud to call them friends. Dave and Cathy Petronis. As you know I am one of your friends and of course a vintage gun collector. I am also very disappointed in the AG and his under handed tactics to persecute gun enthusiasts and the unconstitutional effort to coerce honest US and NY citizens. This governmental injustice is all very sad and a blemish on America and free societies.
As you know I have set up at a few shows in an effort to reduce my gun collection since the apparent goal of these tyrants is to subvert the laws of this fine country and disarm its citizens. I have been a hunter, trapper and fisherman all my life. I was raised on a small farm in the Adirondacks where bringing home some game for the table was greatly appreciated by my grandparents from Austria.
They worked hard and honestly to meek out a living in difficult times and terrains. It took me years of hard work to earn enough extra money to put together a collection and hoped it would be an investment and fun in my retirement years.
I have worked 50 years building roads, bridges, railroad crossings, wastewater treatment plants, airport improvements, power lines, and many other public domain improvements. I fan a fur business for 27 years, a motel for 8 years and a construction business for 2 years. I was president of our local rod and gun club and founded the Adirondack Trapper Association.
At nearly 68 years old, I have just signed up for another two years for an engineering company to rebuild a local road and bridge a 7 million dollar project. I was born in Syracuse and since my birthday present each year in my youth was a trip to the state fair, I really enjoy that show.
I will endeavor to make it to your shows when it is viable. I am enclosing a check, which I hope you can use toward legal defense of this outrageous onslaught on your family and our constitutional rights. This is the first time I have done this but it is my way of contributing toward honesty in America. I will spread the word hoping to encourage others to do the same.
God Bless America and god bless you Dave and Cathy in these desperate times of injustice. Terry, I want to thank you personally and one of these days, Cathy and I will really stop in and have that coffee. What he considers is a loop-hole in the Gun Show Business Law is actually the right an individual has to sell personal property. Any man or woman who owns a gun can legally sell it to anyone else!
That right should not cease at a gun show. Because he says it is. How much do you want? You could give it to him for free on the spot or sell it for fifty dollars. And your brother-in-law has just committed a crime of receiving a firearm without going thru a Federal background check. If spotted by any police officer in New York State you are subject to arrest, imprisonment and fines.
Did you know it is a crime to do what transpired? The answer, it appears, of educating the NY State populace of this law is on my shoulders and the responsibility of other Gun Show Promoter.
And give a deposition under oath! But, I could agree to this new demand, pay the fine and watch my step in the future. I thought blackmail was illegal.
As a citizen, you have a perfect right to sell your personal property anywhere, anytime and to whom you wish. That is, except your legally owned guns at gun shows!
Of course, if you were at a show in our adjoining states of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania or Ohio you could still do the same thing. Only in New York is it a crime. In New Jersey there are no gun shows but you can own a machine gun. Schneiderman may be looking to mimic New Jersey without the machine gun part. I still have my sights set on Jersey though.
If you as a free citizen of this New York State agree that this whole charade is just that, a political move to enhance a resume, then help me and the other promoters of Gun Shows by letting your elected representatives know how you feel about your rights being violated. This is not about guns; this is and always will be about control!
Guns will never go away, they are a part of the American Tradition. Guns make us Americans. Whether you like or dislike this is, not the question. Whether you can sell your personal property is. Perhaps our Second Amendment Protection Union should be formed. You may not sell your gun to anyone while on the show grounds or adjoining parking lots without having the buyer go through a NICS check, this is illegal.
You can, however, sell your guns to any FFL dealer. They are there, in fact, not only to sell but to buy new inventory. We can still do business but in a far more intrusive way. It should be the responsibility of the State, not mine. Commentary by David Petronis, Dec. A Gun Lover Poem. In earnest response to a Viewpoint in the Sunday Gazette dated April 29, I respectfully disagree with the author and her views but staunchly defend her right to flowingly air them.
I humbly submit a gun lover poem:. Barbara DeMille of Rensselearville. At writing has really a fine wit. But with accuracy become more a nit-wit. Automatic weapons were never used. While her facts they were quite abused. For protection in homes today. Reasons schools should teach aim and accuracy again. I long for the day when kids went afield and about. Responsibility with ownership is more what we need. As for a hooded perp with a burglary history. A security shooting should not be a mystery.
Threats to my person or force into my house. I should not be required to run like a mouse. Our gun control to be strived more. Should be to hit what is truly aimed for! Seems like all the major gun companies have figured out that with all the buying activity, they can raise their prices to distributors.
Naturally they then pass it on to us dealers who in turn — guess what — have to pass it on to our customers. You may want to stop by and get yours before the summer fun begins and none are around. Also, just got resupplied with the Russian Moisan Nagant, both round and octagonal receivers. But they are in super condition with accessories and are still fairly cheap considering the overall market on guns in general. We also have the 7. Been to an auction lately? The guns usually end up costing more than for what I sell the same thing at my store, no bargains there.
And I give a guarantee. See our Gun Show page for details. Click on our link to join, lots of guns and stuff at our shows. Hudson River Trading Company. To My Wife and the Rest of the World …. Living married with me for nearly 50 years and working in our business's together since , that alone should warrant a woman of the year award.
And I do remember that time she helped me with an engine overhaul! And for keeping up with me to reach our fifty years of marriage on June 30, , any wonder I want to keep her happy? Or that she is still the apple of my eye and my best friend? All in all I think I may have scratched the surface of what Cathy Petronis, my wife and life partner, has done and continues to do on a daily basis.
We survived the Mechanicville Tornado that ruined our home and plans then worked together to rebuild our lives.
For this life and in the next, I nominate Cathy Petronis for woman of the year. See our Sunday Gazette! Happy New Year to all us Primates! This is my Niece, Jill Andrews, with the little guy. For the full story click here! Our organization does not engage in criminal activity. The purpose of our organization is to promote our arms collecting hobby and provide a forum where arms can be traded or acquired and educational displays can be presented.
We have organized and promoted gun shows since We have never experienced a bad incident or problem of any sort and during the past 30 years we have provided safe and enjoyable events to hundreds of thousands of people through the Northeast from Maine to Pennsylvania. Evidently, now we are somehow to be looked upon as criminals by the Attorney General, and our past three decades of professionalism mean nothing.
I am not quite sure if the Attorney General actually believes that our hobby provides places where criminals gather to do evil, but let me assure you, that concept is as far from the truth as possible.
Gun shows have been held throughout New York State for decades with no problems. In fact, there are existing laws regulating gun shows, and even a designated group of New York State troopers to enforce those laws. We conform to this requirement and have done so since we were notified of it. This rule also applies to all persons entering the show, even to individuals who meet at the show, discuss the purchase of a firearm that one of them owns, then leave the show together.
They are still legally liable to obey the regulations of the NICS check if they finish their transaction outside. By the way, let me explain that the above rule with respect to private sales is only for us New Yorkers.
An even more bizarre situation concerns the person who arrives at the gun show with a private firearm and sells it to someone before ever entering the building. I hear in conversations that this may be exactly the situation that I am now being investigated for. I have had many calls of inquiry and support from people who have attended our shows and from our NEACA members. Many have asked to send a letter of support saying that our practices at the shows have always been above board and according to regulations.
To all those people, I say Thank You! Show your support for someone who has stringently obeyed the laws and has probably annoyed some of our show attendees by stressing in word and practice that we all have a responsibility. I urge you to support our local shows, our NEACA organization and most of all our constitutional rights. It has been said to me that our new Attorney General is an anti-gunner, a staunch liberal in favor of eliminating gun shows and possibly our gun rights.
I do think, however, that like many public officials he may have an agenda. A lot of progressives feel that gun control is righteous and will save lives. Again, thanks to everyone for your continued support and we hope to see you at our next City Center, Saratoga Springs Arms Fair on January 28, 29, Download the complete story as a PDF.
It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on on-going financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Six years later America will do a lot better As a firearms dealer, I read with some interest the Pastor initiated gun buy-back program offered in Schenectady and reported in your Gazette on June 19, I question the lawfulness of such an event.
As a state and federally licensed dealer in Mechanicville, I applaud the attempt of removing illegal guns from city streets as the Pastors Charlie Muller of Albany and Ted Ward of Schenectady have envisioned. But at that time there were so many legal hurdles to address which made such an attempt to retrieve stolen and illegal guns near impossible, I wonder what now has changed; not much, I believe, perhaps attitude. Our New York State laws still insist that a handgun be registered by name, serial number and caliber to an individual holding a valid and current pistol license.
The point is, regardless of the noble intent, the picture your photographer snapped of the Rev. Charlie Muller holding that. Dumb as it is, that is the way it is. It is not my intention to undermine the efforts of these fine and responsible people but rather to raise awareness of some of the stupid rules that try to run our society.
So what does Charlie do with an illegal handgun? Give it to the police who then need to find out where it came from? That could well be their job. If it was found to be a stolen weapon, which in most cases it probably is, do they return it to the rightful owner?
And by simply getting a murder weapon off the street, if that is what we are most concerned with, is the evidence of that gun and its ballistics now useless to track and prosecute the murderer? Why not let plain folks who find old guns in their attic just turn them in to their local licensed gun dealer who in turn can help them be registered or sold as a collector piece? Why can one scenario be solemn and good while also being lawbreaking, the other be impossible?
The Real Gun Show Story 2. This next event will also mark our 28 th year producing shows at the Saratoga Springs City Center, this one being number eighty-four! To see some of our prior exhibitors and their presentations click to Saratoga Arms Fair. Over the years we have had many highly creative people included in our Arms Fairs and this is a great opportunity for many of them plus new artists to pool together in our show and make August in Saratoga not just the place to be for horse folks but for Artists and Artisans as well.
That is why our Saratoga show has been running fine for these nearly three decades! To toot our own horn, we try harder and work friendlier. This is a great little village in the beautiful Central Adirondack Mountains of New York State, truly a world away from city trials and troubles; though the traffic does get backed up when the whitetails wander the main roads! Our business is good, we at New East-Coast Arms Collectors Associates or NEACA, are all well and in fine health; we like what we do and have friends across the country … what else can there possibly be to better enjoy the continued good life?
I know, for you to check out our shows as an exhibitor or attendee, better yet, join us and become a Member. You will enjoy what you have been missing. The Real Gun Show Story 1. Our company actually staged the first large event at the budding building when we opened with an exquisite Antique Show. I think the sign announcing something about a new Convention Center brought me to an abrupt halt and I found Mark Baker on site doing things in a small construction trailer.
Mark is still there issuing our contracts and now overseeing the expanding show area. We now routinely fill the hall with exhibitors and public has been flooding in four times a year to buy, sell and trade firearms of all makes and models plus taking home antique war weapons and accoutrements of every description. Ours has been an ever changing business; we routinely must revise our shows to comply with new rules and regulations.
Not only are there changing Federal laws to stay abreast of but New York State is one of the most restrictive in business with its own laws, taxes and compliances that we must follow, and being in the gun business we must abide by many more specific regulations. To buy a firearm there are forms to fill out, instant background checks to be made and hopefully received back in a timely manner, and delivery to be accomplished. What used to be a lightly regulated swap meet 30 years ago is now a full time, well managed business.
And years ago when these meets were few and far between today there are literally dozens of gun shows that go on simultaneously each and every weekend across these great United States. Business has been good; while other businesses may be feeling the recession, the gun makers and sellers have been doing fairly well.
It seems that people who never expressed an interest in owning a gun now want one in their home. Pistol permit applications are way up and background checks for purchases are at record levels.
Whenever a Democrat administration is in power just the threat of more rights being compromised or more restrictive gun laws enacted seem to be enough to spur our business on.
Now with the Obama nation in charge of both the Congress and the Whitehouse, the fears stated are present once more. Guns and ammunition sales were at record levels last year and continue to be strong. The recent Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment to our US Constitution actually means what it states, that individuals have the right to own guns, now is being exercised at a brisk pace.
It is also widely believed that after this election in November that a left over Democrat lame-duck Congress will try to ram through new laws or regulations that will be very adverse to gun owners nationwide.
