Last year, 3,000 gun rights supporters arrived in Albany to protest Gov. Andrew Cuomo's anti-gun SAFE Act. It was such a high profile event, that even today's most prolific headline maker, Donald Trump, was in attendance. While the rally was largely peaceful, participants allege that Cuomo's administration ordered state police to bully them.
State police harassed attendees and confiscated their replica guns, according to groups like the Shooters Committee on Political Education:
SCOPE contends Governor Cuomo and his staff orchestrated rules and regulations that were enforced by troopers in order to intimidate protesters and disrupt their demonstration.
"I was there, and it was total intimidation," said New York State Assemblyman David DiPietro of East Aurora. "That was done by the governor on purpose to try and intimidate people."
As a result of the tension, SCOPE filed a Freedom of Information Law request to the state to obtain documents they believe would show Cuomo and his staff "micromanaged" the rally, ordering police to act brashly toward the gun rights supporters.
A state supreme court judge ruled in favor of the protesters and has informed the governor's office he has 30 days to hand over the documents or appeal the decision. They told WGRZ reporter Michael Wooten they intend to do the latter.
From all angles, it's clear these gun rights activists were just demonstrating their First Amendment rights, fed up with Cuomo's obsession with anti-gun policies.
This is not the only victory for New York gun rights against the intimidating Cuomo administration. In May, the governor was ordered to release records from his SAFE Acts assault weapons registry after initially denying over 2,000 FOIA requests.
The liberal governor can only mess with New Yorker's First (and Second) Amendment rights for so long. They're making their voices heard.
LOLOLOLOL! Yeah, and what enforcement agency will ensure compliance? Owwwww. Maybe a judge will “make” him do it. Or the NY legislature. Can’t......stop.......laughing.
anybody know the line on how long before he dumps the girlfriend now that she's had both breasts removed???
This Gov will do anything he darn well cares to do.
He will never be held to account for anything.
It will be the taxpayers who pay for the harassment, the lawsuits, the government push back and any judgement.
Public employees need to be held PERSONALLY liable when they trample the law.
Bankrupt a few Public Servants and the BS will stop.
Why can’t we see that some factions of our country are gone? Beyond retrieval. NY, DC, CA. Cut them off — amputate and move on.
The rest of the U.S.A. that has held to the principals of the founding fathers need to band together to salvage what is left.
It shows what kind of character he is if he does dump her
i say not before he leaves office, of course she may leave on her own before then
“A state supreme court judge ruled in favor of the protesters and has informed the governor’s office he has 30 days to hand over the documents or appeal the decision....”
Or the judge will do what? There is a gangster in Gracie Mansion. The judge might soon get a horse head in his head.
That should read “get a horse head in his bed”.
THis could end up blowing up in their faces.
The Cuomo’s are not the brightest bulbs in the building. That’s for damn sure.
Not even a small chance. Clinton and Eric (With)Holder showed how it's done.
“While the rally was largely peaceful, participants allege that Cuomo’s administration ordered state police to bully them.”
You don’t challenge the fascist dictator - state or federal - without bringing armed muscle. That armed muscle is available to every conservative across the country by electing a pro-2nd amendment, Constitutional sheriff. I have one in my county.
When the liberal governor got froggy toward gun owners and veterans, my sheriff instructed specific members of the state police to stay out of his county. The state post police commander, who was one of us, followed the sheriff’s orders. The governor ran like hell away from the state and is now living as a commie in California.
The politician instigated and created the tension and ordered the outright Strong Armed Robbery, BUT every last Police Officer WENT ALONG THE CRIMINAL ACTS, and they should ALL PAT PERSONALLY!
Following orders didn’t work for Hitler’s nazi’s and it should not be allowed for this turds Nazi’s.
And they wonder why the majority of Americans have little or no respect for police
