Skip to comments.Can the Governor of New York and 2016 Presidential Hopeful Actually Be this Thick?
Posted on 01/15/2013 7:13:03 PM PST by rustyweiss74
In reading up on Governor Cuomo's new gun legislation in New York, I came across a rather startling statement. Startling in it's pure and utter stupidity.
And in what Cuomo termed "the Webster Provision" a reference to the Dec. 24 killings of two firefighters fatally shot while responding to a call in a suburb of Rochester the murder of a first responder will become a felony punishable by life in prison without parole.
That's right, a future Presidential hopeful for 2016 is actually bragging about a provision in his gun law named specifically for one individual gun man, even thought that provision could never - EVER - be applied to that gun man.
Completely ignored by the Governor and the Times Union report is the not-so-trivial fact that the man who ambushed and killed the firefighters in Webster, fatally shot himself long before police could ever locate him.
Mr. Cuomo, enlighten the citizens of New York please, and explain how would the Webster Provision have been implemented in the case of say, the actual Webster shooting? Just how much of a f*** do you think the shooter would care about this new law, considering he ... is ... dead?
Perhaps this is just too much of an abstract way of thinking, but there aren't too many dead people that I know of that are concerned about spending their non-existent life in prison without parole.
Could any media types please ask that question of the Governor? How would the WEBSTER provision have stopped, or appropriately punished the actual WEBSTER shooter?
I'm not sure which is the bigger problem in this country right now - low information voters, or low information politicians.

Why not make violating our second amendment rights a felony punishable by public execution?
We can call is The Cuomo Law.
As thick as the 51% (minus of course the amount of votes stolen) who re-elected a Serial Marxist.
Cuomo should have been asked about why was this perp even paroled for the hammer bludgeoning murder of his grandmother. That’s the real tragedy.
State run media simply isn’t interested in asking the pertinent questions when the governor is busy crucifying legitimate gun owners.
Perhaps next week the fools in Albany can make murder illegal.
Yes — not that he actually cares whether the program saves lives or not.
Cuomo, Schumer, McCarthy and Bloomberg.....does it get any worse than that foursome? Illinois and California can compete
TBP ~ :” Yes not that he actually cares whether the program saves lives or not. “
Its not about saving lives !
Its all about looking good for libturds for 2016 elections
A “photo op “
and making law abiding citizens to become criminals
See References : “ 1984 “ , “The Lord of the Flys”, “ Atlas Shrugged “
Also : Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137,(1803) “The Constitution of these United States is the supreme law of the land. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.”
Hannity had a great line on his radio show today (not sure if someone else said it first), he said “Cuomo is trying to outflank anyone that might try and get further left than him in 2016.”
I'll second that. And that may be what it takes.
Which means 99.9 percent of our laws are null and void.
Obama phone lady recants and calls Bronco a liar on Alex Jones. Video is 38 minutes.
TBP ~:” Which means 99.9 percent of our laws are null and void.”
I dont know that it makes the 99.9 percent of our laws null and void .
The State Assembly had 2 hours to read the entire 359 pages of the bill seems to me that they were motivated by something other than meaningful legislation.
At less than 30 seconds per page in a legalese language,
the process reminds me of OBAMACARE legislation.
( “You gotta pass it to find out what’s in it “~ Nazi Pelosi )
All this bad , ill-thought out , legislation just to grab headlines ?
Cuomo is a dimwit. Have you ever heard him speak? He’s only the governor because of his name.
