And Barry outlaws such machinery (if he can,…. and the big question: if our legislators will roll over and let him…)…
What are you gonna do?
Bury ’em in the backyard? (We will get to that later)…..
Turn ’em in like the Australians did?
Really, what are ya gonna do?
A lot of New Yorkers chose to Not Comply with the “Safe Act”…
Now, apparently, (and, illegally, I think) somehow the NY State Police have 4473’s….the better to knock your door down with a search warrant some evening….
Unless you have done a great job of hiding ’em, they’ll find ’em. And charge you…and fine or incarcerate you. Best have a plan and have ’em (and the ammo) hidden well…..very well.
I, for one, believe that if the time has come to hide/bury those firearms, then it is past time to use ’em instead….
But I have also taken the time over the years to make several cache areas….some near my home, some elsewhere….in order that I have options and time to plan.
All cache areas are well salted with scrap iron. Steel and aluminum washers, short (and long) bits of rebar, and allthread….some an inch long, some a foot or two….some 16 and 20 inches long. Lots of buried wire that is (oddly enough) about 20″ long…the same general length of a barrel and receiver. lots of aluminum cans and small blocks of aluminum…. Lots of empty cases buried or pushed into the ground. sometimes in groups of 20 or 30….(I pick ’em up from the trash at the public ranges)…even a few buried ammo boxes here and there….
How many false positives before the searchers give up? How many pieces of 3/8″ or 1/4″ steel pipe buried in PVC tubes before they choose other locations? (A posthole digger is your friend here, BTW…. And this is work. Hard work) I’m not saying that ground penetrating radar wouldn’t be an aid to them, but I
have done can do a lot to make even that form of detection harder…..
So. Can. You.
Laying false trails makes ’em waste valuable manpower…and if they are wasting time on your well-seeded possible stash areas, they aren’t looking at your neighbors or compatriots. ….Giving them time to do something. Even giving them time to think how hard they are willing to resist.
Next time you go to the hardware store/Lowes/Home Depot, ask the plumbing department for their mistakes and cutoffs……Might be you can walk out with a bunch of scrap for nothing…Seed several areas. Same-same with your neighbors recyclables. Your workshop scrap? Same-same…
Yes, it is littering. Done in a good cause.
I figure over the years I have left thousands of false triggers for the metal detectors and GPR in many areas. Some also have the cache ready for when I need ’em. Some are ready to receive the stash when the time comes.
Are You Ready?
Or will you knuckle under? Be like the Australians in 1996? Have your freedom taken from you because of one incident used by socialist politicians who want to control you?
Plus, Note that Kalifornia can now take your weapons “Just Because“….and you don’t get any notice they are in court to do so….no chance to face your accuser or defend yourself until AFTER the confiscation has taken place……. I think if I lived there, I’d have already buried one or two…..if I absolutely HAD to live in that state……
