The New York Police Department has apparently decided that it will participate in any upcoming Federal crackdown on firearms ownership. It is in stark contrast to the NYPD's hands off approach to illegal aliens. It refuses to arrest or hold illegal aliens, but it wants Americans's guns.

NEW YORK (CBS New York) — Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them.
Of course there is no real question as to whether the NYPD will participate in gun confiscation. They will do so with relish.
One of the failings of Second Amendment supporters is that they are single issue voters. Unfortunately there is no such thing as a single issue in politics. You might not be interested in other politics, but other politics is interested in you. In this case it is the illegal alien boosters such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg support illegal immigration for a reason: the overwhelming Hispanic vote for Obama.
20 million illegal aliens are waiting in the wings for amnesty and they will be voting for politicians who support gun control. Hispanic groups are pushing gun control, but diversity advocates in the Second Amendment community are have their heads in the sand about the impact of Hispanics on the gun issue. They treat any race reality on the issue with accusations of racism. The reality is that immigrants oppose gun rights and support the Demoncrat Party. Some crow that sheriffs are openly stating that they will not be enforcing any ban, but big city chiefs, many black and Hispanic, are ecstatic about any gun ban and will be providing the foot-soldiers to shoot down gun owning white people.
Just look at the color of the so-called law enforcement leaders at Dianne Feinstein's gun ban announcement:
Amnesty will be the death knell of the Second Amendment.
