Being in NY, I can tell you that there are most definitely areas of the state where resistance would crop up immediately. Especially amongst law enforcement. Many of them are refusing to enforce the SAFE Act on a quiet basis.
That’s what its like here… very quiet. But look at the % of people who didn’t register their guns. Resistance is here for sure, it’s just laying low. I believe that if the state made any truly aggressive move, it would explode into open warfare very quickly.
