Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), speaking on MSNBC Live on Jan. 16 said that some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome when it comes to gun control.
Rangel was asked by anchor Thomas Roberts whether new gun control measures passed in New York State should serve as models for other states:
If youre proud of what New York has done, obviously there is not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody is going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection but do you think that New York, and what has been done in this state, could be used as a role model for other states that would like to enact something of New Yorks model?
Rangel responded by saying: Well I hope so. New York is a little different and more progressive in a lot of areas than some other states and some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome.
He added: But we do have a model set of what Republicans and Democrats, Conservatives and Liberals have come together and put the party labels behind them and come forward with something that says Hey, we may disagree, but one thing is clear that we have to do something' and thats exactly what they have done.
Last week, New York State passed stricter gun control measures in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on Dec. 14. The new law calls for an expanded assault weapons ban, and a new registration of already owned semi-automatic weapons.
The new law also calls for a limit of seven rounds on magazine clips and for mental health and law enforcement officials to be informed when it is believed that a patient is likely to be a danger to themselves or others.
The bill passed the New York State Senate by a vote of 43-18 and the Assembly by a vote of 104-43. Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law on Jan 15.
Some of the Northern areas have cultures we have to overcome.
Altura Ct. ~ : (fromn the article) “ The bill passed the New York State Senate by a vote of 43-18 and the Assembly by a vote of 104-43. Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law on Jan 15. “
Another NYS FUBAR : “RAM,.. BAM,.. Thank you Ma’m” law constructed behind closed doors.
(Also in violation of the NY State Constitution Sunshine laws)
Another “ You gotta read it , to find out what’s in it” libturd movement.
It is legislative action designed to demonstrate Andy Cuomo and how progressive he is
It was done to curry favor for his Presidential political ambitions for 2016
There was NO THOUGHT to repercussions : such as police limited to 7 round magazines, etc., etc...
All done within 30 days of the Conneticutt shooting which was the hot topic / crisis of the week
Utter FUBAR !!
Has charlie not read about Chicago’s murder rate?
Greasy career criminal insulting America. IOW, a typical RAT.
Rebel Yell ping....
Doesn't Charlie know that breathing all that asbestos dust from his pants is bad for his lungs?
Look first at the vote numbers, then look at New York Gun Control Law Exposed: 15 More Measures Left Out Of Final Bill and the FR posting of it.
New York is progressive alright, like Stage 4 cancer.
This is exactly what they said about Tarp and all the Stimuli bill. BUT WE HAVE TO SOMETHING EVEN IF IT DONT WORK!!!!
How about the culture in Chicago, Detroit, & W.D.C?
You see Charlie, CRIME is what we’re trying to control!
NOT Self Defense!
Not just some of the northern areas, but many of them.
The current situation is more akin to prerevolutionary times rather than pre-CW times.
That 50% of the population that supports the Constitution is spread widely across all of the states like it was in 1775-1776. There are areas that are loyalist, areas of resistance and areas mixed with both.
This is not “solid south” situation; the south has plenty of National Socialist Democrat Party infestations.
Hey Charlie, light the fuse, create that 1776 moment, and you’ll certainly be in the blast zone of unwanted attention along with the rest of your fascist cohorts.
FUBO & FAD
Rangle looks and sounds like a child molester
Was Charlie speaking from the Federal Penitentiary? Oh yea, that’s right, he got the black D.C. politician pass.
His statements don’t make me steam and stew like they once did. I’ve learned to remember that, one Day, Charlie Rangel has to answer for being Charlie Rangel. Truly feel pity for him and our once-great nation.
serves me correctly there is less crime in the south.
Well maybe not in New Orleans. Oh, but wait, Charlie’s peeps live in new orleans. That explains the crime. Charlie stay out of the south.
I will concur, the minutemen are widely spread around the nation.
Crime might be what YOU think we’re trying to control,
but the left has something entirely different in mind that they want to control.
When we argue based on their deceitfully stated premises,
we answer the fools in their folly instead of pointing out their folly for all to see.
Is he starting with Chitlins, Colored Greens, and Grits?
Or Religion, Bibles, and Guns?
Seems to me the “culture” that needs to be “overcome” is politically correctly referred to as the “urban culture”.
A not-so-politically correct observation is that this culture overwhelming consists of Charlie’s constituency groups.
