Anti-Gun Gov. Cuomo Puts NY Gun Owners on Notice Announcing Gun Ban Agenda
Friday, January 11, 2013
Charlotte, NC –(Ammoland.com)- America’s Most-Anti-Gun Governor hails from the same state as the nation’s Most-Anti-Gun Mayor, New York City Michael Bloomberg.
Exploiting tragedy, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s fiery State of the State speech outlined a laundry list of recycled gun control proposals that have failed across the country — and they have already failed in New York. Please contact your state Senator and Assemblyman TODAY and respectfully ask him or her to oppose legislation that does nothing more than target law-abiding gun owners.
Your phone call or email will play an important role in halting these assaults on your Second Amendment rights.
The Empire State already has imposed a ban on “assault weapons” and a ten-round magazine capacity limit. New York already has some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation. According to the Brady Campaign’s national ranking of state gun control laws, New York is the fourth “best” (as in most restrictive) state in the nation. And when each of these bad proposals was enacted into New York law, politicians promised it would fix the crime problem. Years later, it is clear that they most certainly didn’t. Yet, even with this record of utter failure so obvious, we are supposed to believe these very same failed laws should be expanded. Gun control has not worked because criminals, by definition, do not obey the law. Refusing to learn history’s lesson that criminals don’t follow the rules and misuse legally registered firearms, Cuomo — incredibly — is back demanding that you should believe the solution is in these same failed laws being “strengthened.” This is the same Governor who had to repeal CoBis last session because that ballistic imaging database — sold to the taxpayers of New York as a solution to violent crime — was a miserably sad and expensive failure of a gun control crusade that cost the overburdened state $4 million annually without producing any results.
Minutes after New York Senators swore the oath of office in the Statehouse, vowing to uphold both the U.S. and New York constitutions, lawmakers went into another room and heard the Governor outline his agenda for trampling all over those documents and the rights of all New Yorkers. Cuomo advised the Senate and Assembly to resist the pleas of “extremists,” presumably labeling law-abiding gun owners with that moniker.
