Not only does he unconstitutionally deny your rights as a gun owner, but he has to make sure to insult you while he’s at it. Way to reach out to the other side, Andy.
Key measures of New York’s tough new gun law are set to kick in, with owners of guns now reclassified as assault weapons required to register the firearms and new limits on the number of bullets allowed in magazines.
As the new provisions take effect Monday, New York’s affiliate of the National Rifle Association said it plans to head to court to seek an immediate halt to the magazine limit.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls those and other provisions in the state’s new gun law common sense while dismissing criticisms he says come from “extreme fringe conservatives” who claim the government has no right to regulate guns.
“Yes, they are against it, but they are the extremists and the extremists shouldn’t win, especially on this issue when it is so important to the majority,” Cuomo said in a radio interview Wednesday. “In politics, we have to be willing to take on the extremists, otherwise you will see paralysis.”
Did he mention they’re extremists? Let’s see what he’s got to say when this bogus law is overturned. This moron already had to go back an rewrite the laws after his idiotic seven bullet limit made criminals out of the police. So who’s the extremist here? Gun owners or a schmuck who rammed through a law in the dead of night that was quickly determined to be unworkable?
Rich Davenport, recording secretary of the Erie County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, said their nearly 11,000 members are united in opposition to the law, which he considers a hasty, illogical and emotional response to the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. He also questioned likely compliance with the registration requirement.
“I’m guessing it’ll be pretty low,” said Davenport, a longtime hunter. He said that even though he’s not personally affected by the registration provision, “I’m offended as an American.”
But you don’t matter, Rich. You’re a fringe extremist with no rights in Andrew Cuomo’s New York.
