Who are these “extremists” he speaks of? The law-abiding gun owners of his state? The NRA?
Notice every time one of these gun grabbers opens his yap they use “common sense” in nearly every sentence. Meaning, of course, you don’t make any sense if you disagree with their extremism. If they had the slightest bit of intelligence they’d realize their political posturing preening will do nothing to save any lives.
Some gun-rights advocates were worried about the law’s ban on any rifle pistol grip “that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon” — language that they worried could be broadly defined to include many common rifles.
Those who already own guns banned by the law may keep them so long as they register their weapons with the state, and submit themselves to State Police background checks.
The law also requires people buying ammunition to undergo background checks, and includes provisions aimed at limiting ammo and gun sales to people with mental illness.
“These gun-control schemes have failed in the past and will have no impact on public safety and crime,” the National Rifle Association said in a statement.
But Cuomo expressed pride in the law, which he signed a day before President Obama was to unveil his federal gun-law proposals.
“We can overpower the extremists with intelligence and with reason and with common sense, and that’s what we’re going to do,” Cuomo said.
Of course it took less than a day for his law to prove meaningless.
Only takes the slightest bit of common sense to see that.
