It doesn’t matter, This mental midget has a job for life unless he decided to run for a different office and then he will get that one. The libtards will keep voting him in over and over.
Worth reading Coumo police state ping!
Wayne LaPierre on NBC made a good point, if you expand background checks to all transactions then whats to stop the Dems from doing what they did in some NY counties and publish their names and addresses on the internet?
LaPierre knows how to fight for sure!
Ralf Reed, Gary Bauer and Tony Perkins should take lessons from him.
What percentage of the criminal culture will register their arms?
What percentage of even the law-abiding will walk in to register their arms?
I’m guessing it will be low.
Mr Cuomo just sprang a leak in his gravitas.
NYS’s very own dictator.
At least some of the complaints, however, seem to be having an impact: In a begrudging bow to reality, the state senate, including five renegade Democrats, effectively suspended the seven-bullet limit indefinitely, as of this weekend. The suspension means magazines holding up to 10 rounds will continue to be sold, Bloomberg reported Sunday. The rest of the law remains intact.
Before the massacre at Newtown, Cuomo had an approval rating of 7418. After he pushed the bill, it dropped to 5928, still high but a dramatic drop. Among Republicans in the state, he moved from 6818 to 4443. Cuomo was afraid of the public rising up and the public has risen up, New York Conservative-party chairman Mike Long says. There are 52 counties that have introduced resolutions calling for repeal. There are 40 counties that have passed resolutions. Three weeks ago, citizens held the largest rally that ever took place in Albany: over 5,000 people. By the time people took to the streets, a petition urging Cuomo to revisit the law had collected 83,000 signatures.
The legislation is subject to a legal challenge from the National Rifle Associations New York affiliate, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association. The group filed a federal lawsuit last week that challenges the constitutionality of the measure and requests an injunction. The suit claims that the limits on magazine capacity and the expansion of the assault weapons ban restricts the right of law-abiding citizens to keep commonly possessed firearms in the home for defense of self and family and for other lawful purposes. Not challenged by the lawsuit, but no less worrying to Second Amendment defenders, are the creation of a statewide gun registry (which usurps the local registries that previously obtained) and the requirement that gun owners undergo background checks through the New York NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) in order to buy bullets the first such rule in the country. Also unchallenged are the restrictions on existing weapons that prevent owners of grandfathered firearms from handing them down to their family members or selling them to neighbors or friends.
These provisions, it appears, were urgent, because the children deserved them. Provisions to secure classrooms, on the other hand, were not, and they have been delayed indefinitely, subject to the findings of a committee that has not yet been formed.
This is unsurprising. As Representative Kieran Lalor told the New York Daily News:
One of the bills sponsors was asked on the Assembly floor whether this law would have prevented the horrible murders of students and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He answered, No. When some of his colleagues gasped at his honesty, he changed his answer to Maybe.
Practical questions remain. New York State has not yet indicated how it intends to process the 1 million guns that must be registered within the year. If the law is to be obeyed, 2,500 guns per day will need to be registered. There is currently no system in place to do this. The irony here is obvious: The state will rush to divert time, resources, and treasure in order to set up a system with which only the law-abiding will comply.
Those omissions need to be corrected.
The SAFE guy didn't even know what to say, and basically punted to the police who would have to make that decision.
Since when do police officers make arrests without the authority of the lawmakers?
Bastille 2.0 surely can't be that far away now.
