Saratoga Springs NY, Bans Gun Sales on City Properties
Saratoga Springs New York is demonstrating how small minded the anti-gun progressive left can really be.
Banning the sales of firearms on city property, such as gun shows, in their [Saratoga Springs City Council] minds, is a bold and noble attempt at reducing gun violence in their area.
Little do they know, or even care to realize, is that bad guys don’t obey the law!
The Saratoga Springs City Council voted unanimously in March to prohibit gun sales on a city-owned property, after the February massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Antique shows will still be allowed on city properties, but gun shows will now have to be held at private venues according to Fox News.
“I feel that it’s a terrible ending. We should still be allowed to be here,” President of New East Coast Arms Collectors David Petronis told WTEN. Petronis has been bringing gun shows to the Saratoga Springs City Center for more than 30 years, organizing more than 100 gun shows, which have become an annual tradition in the area.
“It was just becoming this constant sort of barrage media affair circus,” City Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan told WTEN.

While the decision to implement such moronic measures by the city council naturally has gained some support from the liberal minority in the are, most of the residents think the council’s decision is an infringement on their rights.
“We believe in the Second Amendment and we just think New York is just trying to unarm its citizens,” William Minner of Albany told WTEN.
