Mayor Predicts “Waco-Style Standoff” In Response to Obama Gun Confiscation
(PRISON PLANET) Expressing his opposition to the New York SAFE Act, Gloversville Mayor Dayton King has sensationally warned that any federal gun confiscation program could lead to a “Waco-style standoff” in rural areas of America.
“Most people are law-abiding citizens and may go ahead and sell those or turn those over, but you’re going to have a fraction of people that are going to take a stand, and I can just predict a Waco-style standoff in some rural area and it’s not going to end well,” Mayor King told Fox 23 News.
During the Waco siege in April 1993, after failing to execute a search warrant against the Branch Davidians, federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) burned down the Mount Carmel Center, slaughtering seventy-six men, women and children.
The SAFE Act, which passed the NY Senate late Monday, states that weapons with a detachable magazine and one military style feature purchased before the law was passed must be registered and that any high capacity magazine holding ten rounds or more must be sold out of state within one year.
Back in December, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo admitted that “confiscation could be an option,” when it came to enforcing the new law. However, provisions in the original bill that included confiscation were removed in order to prevent the legislation from being voted down.
Mayor King’s comments echo those of outgoing Congressman Ron Paul, who last week told The Alex Jones Show that the second amendment represents Americans’ “line in the sand,” and that any attempt at federal gun confiscation could lead to revolution.
“I don’t think we’ll do that calmly, I think the American people will highly resent it and resist,” said Paul.
While much of the Obama administration’s gun control agenda is being pursued via legislation and executive orders, a significant portion of it is also being achieved via extortion and blackmail.
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has demanded that gun retailers agree to a laundry list of draconian gun control regulations, including the abolition of sales of semi-auto weapons, threatening them with economic sanctions if they do not become front line facilitators for gun control.
