ALBANY -- An assemblywoman under fire for sponsoring a bill that asks cops to shoot gun-wielding suspects in the arms and legs brushed off the outrage yesterday -- although she admitted she is no expert on police work.
Asked about her critics' contention that the proposed legislation will put police lives at risk, Annette Robinson (D-Brooklyn) told The Post: "I understand that."
She insisted that cops use too much force, but acknowledged she is unqualified to assess the issue.

People in gubment like this thing are why we are doomed as a people.
being unqualified doesn't stop her from the old 'open mouth, insert hoof' syndrome.
is there a worse level of stupidity?
Imagine the level of stupidity of those that elect them.
If you can shoot them in the arm or leg, you don’t have to shoot at all. Plus there are arteries in the arms and legs and they can bleed out and die, so it’s not automatically a non-lethal shot.
Obviously the woman who thought this up is not a person familiar with weapons and under what conditions, you use them, and how.
They should shoot the gun out of the bad guys hand like they do in some westerns or better yet, let the bad guy shoot first and then shoot his bullet out of the air before it hits anyone.
Liberals are plumb stupid.
“I admit I have no idea what I am talking about but I’ll insist you do it my way anyway”
People in the Gubmint like this will be running health care soon!!!
Isn’t that great?
Sure she is. She's seen them on TV.
What is Albany NY like? Do they deserve this broad?
She represents Brooklyn. I’m not familiar with Albany, other than being the state’s capital, maybe someone else can answer that.
A better solution would be for the cop to jump up and grad the bullet with his teeth, that way they would not need to waste taxpayer dollars on guns or bullets.
And her stupidity hasn’t been a recent development:
” A Brooklyn councilwoman came under fire yesterday for suggesting cops might have joined in the Central Park wilding attacks if they hadn’t been in uniform.”
“Councilwoman Annette Robinson (D-Brooklyn) made her comment to reporters...We look at the officers that were on duty and wonder if, were they not in uniform, would they be the ones to participate in the kind of behavior that was existent in Central Park?” she asked.”
I go to look up this woman’s bio -
Has anyone heard of “New Hampshire College”?
“Imagine the level of stupidity of those that elect them.”
Unfathomable! Of course, those guys who got shot in the hand or leg will get Obamacare, so it won’t cost anything! Right, Ms. Robinson?/s;)
The prior name of Southern New Hampshire University.
It’s like wanting something for nothing.
Police need to have the ability and the provisional sanction to kill, just as soldiers do.
You can’t enforce the law without a certain exercise of power.
Well, after seeing her picture, that pretty much answers any question I had. Apparently, too many of her voters were getting capped ....
Scratch that school off our “must visit” list.
Unqualified to assess the situation but she does it anyway, hmmmmmm, obama disease seems to be contageous.
I suspect this is an example of “legislator watches TV drama, introduces bill next day.” This is what you get after generations of denigrating guns and gun owners results in people knowing nothing about them. NY will get what it deserves.
Since you know nothing about law enforcement work....
Maybe you would like to come & help me train a green colt.
Sounds like you think you would be highly qualified for that, also!!!!
Liberalism IS a disease.
“They should shoot the gun out of the bad guys hand like they do in some westerns”
LOL! I always think of that when I have a bad day at the range.
And of course, they allways one hand it too, at about 75 feet or so. :)
I admit I have no idea what I am talking about but Ill insist you do it my way anyway”””
NObama in a skirt.....
They also shoot from the hip and many do it while fanning the hammer!
As a retired police officer of many, many years, this is EXACTLY what we would do when shot at, target, head to toe.
This is amazing, beyound belief.
