4 States Form Coalition to Track Guns

ARRA: by Bridget Johnson: Four governors announced a coalition this week to attempt to stop out-of-state guns from coming into their localities with an information-sharing database to trace and intercept firearms.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo call their coalition “States for Gun Safety,” and said their quad-state database will supplement the federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System and launch the nation’s first Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium.

Cuomo charged that the “federal government’s continued inaction on this issue has not only allowed the epidemic of gun violence to spread,” and “has actually prevented the laws like the SAFE Act from being fully effective.” That New York law requires universal background checks on gun purchases, increases penalties for illegal gun use, mandates life in prison without parole for killing a first responder, and bans assault weapons.

Cuomo said the “groundbreaking partnership” to prevent illegal guns from crossing state lines would “be able to better inform policymakers nationwide on how to keep their communities safe.”

“We cannot wait for Congress to act,” said Murphy. “As states, we must work together to take the steps and enact the measures to protect our residents and our communities. But, even more importantly, a collective of states can take these steps together broaden the reach and impact of commonsense gun safety laws.”  more

  1. man, look at that hooter…put a limit on the size of noses, and quit sticking it into other people’s business, lib boy

  2. I thought the worrying about the government taking my guns ending when trump took office.
    Like I’ve said before the liberals run the country, using the liberal media to push their agenda.

  3. And this is the last we will hear of it forever, as it will do nothing, prevent nothing and probably get hacked on a regular basis.

  4. And how much is this ‘collective’/commie program going to cost the over burdened taxpayers of those states?

    I love the statement that the SAFE act is being impeded by the federal government. How? By their going after MS-13 gangs, illegals, other violent criminals that are given sanctuary? What a bunch of liberalspeak gibberish, that says nothing, except give us more money, more control and shut up.

  5. When I worked at a police station a few years back, I worked in a department that managed the purchase of gun receipts from local gun dealers. We ran out of room for the receipts and the Sergeant in charge told me to shred them. They were suppose to hang on to them for 20 years, but he didn’t care about that. He knew there was no way they could find any receipt in those thousands and thousands of receipts. So, I had them shredded. Mattered not either way as some of the gun dealers went out of business or moved their business. The dealers didn’t care about the receipt either. So, to track zillions of guns is impossible. Oh and what about the millions that are inherited, no one knows who has what and if there is a gun.

  6. So now we have the four states of insanity! The first state(or phase) is the Rhode Island state which is relatively small and insignificant as insanity goes! The second state is the Connecticut state which is just a larger version of the Rhode Island state but slightly more serious. The third state which is very debilitating and dangerous is the New Jersey state and the fourth and possibly fatal state is the New York state. Please try to avoid all four of these states if at all possible in order to protect and safeguard both your mental and physical wellbeing!

  7. Firearms, as inanimate objects, can never be illegal. That said, if the term “Illegal guns” were replaced with “Illegal Aliens” it would actually be something that would indeed help to make those communities safer.
    Liberals, can’t fix stupid.

  8. Ah, it’s the Sfgate version of the story that’s disallowed.

    Per link above, confiscation is happening in Kali. GTFO. Never ever ever register a gun.

  9. How are they going to do this? How do they plan on tracking an illegal gun through those four states? Do they plan on tracking the legal owner of a gun in New York as they travel through the other states? How are they going to do that? Are they going to do plate checks on cars from the other three states and pull them over if they appear on a gun owner registry and do an illegal search? There doesn’t seem to be any real meat on this apart from some liberal goodspeak.

  10. Golden Foxx,

    Not to worry about all those shredded receipts.

    When a gun dealer goes out of business he boxes up ALL his 4473’s and ships all of them to the Feds. Some years back it was a warehouse in Atlanta GA I believe. Not that the government would ever take those records and form some sort of data base…

    Don’t ask how I know…

    Thankfully it’s been more than ten years and I’m betting that most if not all the purchases were probably immediately resold so they won’t remember which ones weren’t lost in the tragic boating accidents.

  11. There are plenty of other states in our wonderful country that I can visit with my wife, family, and our little friends.

  12. You can not have a socialistic government, when the population is armed. Some of the people who bitch the loudest, have armed body guards. Set an example, disarm your body guards. All gun owners should be members of the NRA, or at least send a donation, they are on the front lines. All NRA member should boycott those businesses that have announced they will no longer be affiliated with the NRA. I am certain other companies will welcome 5 Million new customers, be sure to tell them why you are changing. I remember a bumper sticker that said “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” And then, Get off your a$$ and go vote.

    > They are only tracking law abiding citizens.

    Law abiding citizens who sign up for a list? Their neighbors are safer after applauding the First Responders™ that Waco those on the lists.

    > Indict the four governors under “Conspiracy to deny civil rights under color of law.”

    Is “treason” so hard to type?

    For whomever The Party lists. Before The Party “counts”. And announces your “new” rulers. Winning!

  16. Cuomo is a windbag. I live in NY and the Safe Act has done absolutely NOTHING to make us any safer.This latest publicity stunt won’t do any better. What a joke. On us.

  17. Well why not? Look how successful they’ve been tracking illegals, gang bangers, muslims, welfare frauds, Clinton payola, illegal drugs, black panthers, communists, traitors, and other democrats.
