Clearly the recent NY law is unconstitutional and will face Court arguments.
The NY politicians putting through this horrible law know this. But then they know that it will be groups fighting for our Rights that will have to put up money to fight it and this takes time, and they have the taxpayers money to dip into pay for their end. So they don't care, it is all political theater.
"Just leave me alone, I know what to do." - Kimi Raikkonen
The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.' and that `Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty.'
- John Adams
