  • NY Gun Laws

    More nonsense from the Empire State. Historical reenactments canceled when reenactors weren't sure if they could legally bring their historic firearms to the reenactment sites, under New York's new law prohibiting guns in certain public areas. Strange that an attorney specializing in gun laws can't find what the governor is referring to when she claims the new laws make exception for historical events. One reenactment did happen, thanks to local police announcing they wouldn't charge anyone either way. We certainly owe a tip of the hat to many of the state's county sherriffs and other local LEOs, for their common-sense response to the SAFE Act and now this latest round of legislation.

    Thanks for the link Matt.

    This jumped out at me, from the story

    “These laws allow historical re-enactments to occur, and there should be no concern otherwise,” Hochul told the New York Post in a statement. “We will work with legislators and local law enforcement to ensure these events can proceed as they have for centuries. In the meantime, individuals who have lawfully participated in reenactments should continue to do so.”​


    Centuries? Yeah, ok.

      Thanks for pointing that out, I had skimmed right over it. Hilarious. Our leader at her best.

      I've been reading a book about the Battle of Gettysburg, and the formation of the Military Park and all the monuments, called Hallowed Ground by James M. McPherson. He's one of those good historians who likes to point out the lighter side of things along with all the serious stuff, so in each chapter, he mentions a few of the oddball things, funny events, quirks, etc. of either the battles or the building of the national park up through the 1920s and 30s.

      Like the story of the Union general, Schimmenfessig or something like that, who fled through town after the Rebs broke through his lines. The good general ended up hiding out for three days in some lady's pig pen. And the story of how one of the Union regiments has a statue of a little dog along with their monument. The dog was was their mascot through 3 years of the war. After the Battle of Gettysburg, it stayed behind and faithfully guarded the bodies of the soldiers who were killed, until the burial details came back for them. The dog, Sallie, was later killed at the Battle of the Wilderness.

      The final and biggest battle was on Day Three, on Cemetery Hill where the town's graveyard is. Just before the battle began, a Union soldier noted in his diary that there was a sign on the cemetery gate: "Any citizen discharging firearms in this vicinity shall be rigorously prosecuted by the law!" Er, too late!

      I went to the re-enactments down there one year. Interesting stuff, especially the way they do the cannon fire, with the charges set out in the field. Everything was so well choreographed, it really was a good 99% believable.

      Too darn hot, though. July 1,2, and 3rd in southern PA; it was right around 100 each day. No shade at all out in the fields where they do the reenactments. Cool stuff, though.
