New Alcohol Laws mirroring NY Gun laws

    Because of the historical increase nationwide of drunken driving death of innocent people young and old, the governor signed legislation into law last night known as the Alcohol Driver Safety Act 2013.

    Immediately, every individual who wants to consume and/or purchase alcohol must register with the State. After a thorough background investigation ascertaining that the applicant does not have any prior alcohol related violation, the applicant will be issued an Alcohol Drinking Permit (Permit). A Permit must be presented for inspection as required if the individual wants to purchase and/or consume alcohol. A state database will be maintained of all Permit holders. Permit renewal will be required every five years and disclosure of the amount and type of alcohol in their possession at the time will be mandated.

    Alcohol purchased must be through a licensed vendor who is registered with the state. Before sale, the vendor must run a background check of the buyer through the local police department for prior alcohol related violations. The vendor must also report the sale to a new state database. Private sales will still be allowed but the seller must have a state licensed alcohol vendor perform a background check of the buyer through the local police department prior to the sale. The law provides exception for the sale to a spouse or child provided they are Permit holders. Internet purchase of alcohol will be illegal unless shipped to a state licensed vendor.

    There will be a limit on the amount of alcohol and the type of alcohol a permit holder can purchase. Alcohol having a 100 Proof or more will be illegal to possess and purchase. Anyone having alcohol 100 Proof or more have up to 12 months to sell them to out-of-state individuals or licensed vendors. Anyone in possession of alcohol 100 Proof or more could face felony charges. Anyone having possession of alcohol 80 Proof or more will be grandfathered in provided they register it with the state police within 12 months. The new stricter regulation for alcohol will be limited to 70 Proof or less.

    If anyone feels this is outrageous, just think how legal responsible gun owners feel about the new laws just passed in New York. Drunk driving kills more innocent lives and amass millions of dollars of property damage every year. The problem with drunken driving and gun violence is the same. The only difference is in drunken driving accidents all of the lives lost other than the drivers’ are of innocent people. Gang violence, drug dealing and criminal use of guns are everyday occurrence all over the United States. It makes up most of the gun violence in the United States. The media distorts the facts because they only cover tragedies involving innocent victims. In addition, the assault rifle which is the primary issue of recent gun control debate is the least cause of gun violence as per statistics. Check it out for yourself in the Office of Justice Programs, National Institute of Justice, a Department of Justice web site, as well as, the FBI statistics website that our leaders, lawmakers and everyone has access to. Hopefully this will shed some light as to the unjust treatment legal responsible gun owners are being subjected to.

    we know that and you know that, but liberals don't care.

    you cannot speak logically to a liberal, the brainwashing has effectively erased that part of the brain.

    I edited it with paragraphs. And yes anyone can repost it if you like. Lets spread the word out that the new New York gun law is ridiculous and will not solve the problem.

    Except it would be more akin to

    "anything over 40 proof is illegal- 100 proof or higher is completely illegal and will need to be sold out of state-80 proof and below can be kept, but must be diluted to 40 proof."

    Oh, "and your doctor will now be forced to inquire as to whether or not you keep alcohol at the house, and if you are determined by said doctor to be a potential danger to yourself or others, you will have your alchol permit revoked and the feds will come to your house, kick down your door, and stomp your cat's face into the throw rug before promptly confiscating your now illegal alcohol."

    In a late night session NYS now pushed threw an amendment to the above law.... To prevent drunk driving deaths NYers will now have to limit their driving speed to 15 mph. Cars able to go faster must be sold out of state within the next year. To further promote public safety, gasoline will only be sold to those who apply for a new gasoline registration permit. Those who have this permit may buy up to but not more then 7 liters of gasoline per month.

    I like it. This is exactly what I believe is the failing of the new restrictive gun laws. They do nothing to address the significant number of deaths and injuries resulting from other activities.

    The issue here is that many liberals drink and also drive, and consider it a social release , so these are common everyday activities for them in spite of the number of fatalities and injuries produced. It is OK to restrict someone else from their legal activities, while promoting illegal activities by themselves.

    Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death forchildren from 2 to 14 years old

    In 2003 alone 2,136 children died in automobileaccidents. 21% of these were killed inalcohol related crashes.

    What's good for the Goose isn't necessarily good for the Gander, if the Goose is making the rules.

    Lets not forget, alcohol brings in much more money to the state and federal govt with it's taxes and licensing fees then firearms do.

    The point is that everyone will remain docile and dormant until you mess with their liquid courage.

    You can take their guns. You can take their free speech. Just keep your hands off of their alcohol.

    After all alcohol, sports, and drugs are far more important than your Constitutional rights.....

  18. In the words of the late great Dr. Oliver B. Greene,

    "That's sad, but that's so!"

    So much more I could say in the loss and outright removal of Constitutional rights, and how frivously they were stolen and voted away, but the above will suffice.

    Nov 15, 2011 cannot use facts and common-sense with a liberal.....they only believe what their handlers tell them....

    liberals will drink whatever "kool-aid" they are told to drink...
