Cuomo Dismisses Gun Owners as “Extreme Fringe Conservatives”

Posted by on Apr 15, 2013 at 7:32 am

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.

    “Progressives” love extemism on their own side, though, so this is clearly viewpoint discrimination rather than extremist discrimination. How loudly did Cuomo condemn Occupy Everything In Sight?
    jb, you’re only too right.

    The date on your comment header has a problem.

    The safe act ( I refuse to capitalize this travesty) is going to be tied into knots, looks like. That SHOULD render it unenforceable with any luck.

    I hope it gets jammed right back down Gunner Cuomo’s throat.

    So what the heck is in the water that flows through NY State that makes people so control crazy? And why is it it affects those in government so much more profoundly?Guess I have a reason to not drink the water there and in Mexico too.

    The pathogenic Libtards of New York City have the voting power over the rest of the state.Those who live west of the Hudson River are like the “Hunger G amesZones.”Cuomo and his minions are now contacting Doctors in Erie County to provide Medical Records for any person taking anti depression meds under this law.This fishing act violates the 4th Amendment and doctor /patient relationship ,yet Gun owners are “Extremists”.

    The David Lewis case in Erie County will be the tipping point for non compliance with this so called safe act.

    New York, thanks to the Marxist/Socialist/Liberals in New York City and Albany, is a lost cause at this point. It will take a total social/economic collapse to restore sanity to the state – and I speak as one who was born in Queens (NYC) and raised in Orange County. O’course, I’ve been living in the Deep South (Mississippi & Texas) these past thirty-eight years…

    New York State Police oppose the Safe Act, Governor are they extremists too?

    This is more double speak, here’s the reality… Under Cuomo NY has experienced the demise of 39,453 NY state businesses last year, Cuomo is raiding $1.75 billion from the reserves of the off-budget State Insurance Fund (SIF). Coumo can not even hold on to his democratic majority which is in the middle of a corruption scandal and “show-me-the-money culture” and “pay-to-play politics.” He has disenfranchised the Northern and Western part of New York with his SAFE Act.. He can’t make a decision, either way with respect to fracking. New York has the highest taxes in the nation, is the most indebted state, with 33 percent of income dedicated to borrowing. It is ranked as the least “business-friendly” state in the country and if that were not bad enough NY has the distinction of being the least free state in the union and is called the “Nanny State” with politicians legislating what we eat and drink. Municipal governments from Nassau County to Yonkers to Syracuse are teetering. And during Mr. Cuomo’s time in office, unemployment has risen above the national average. 9% of the state’s 2000 population left for another state between 2000 and 2011 — the highest such figure in the nation,” see the study by George Mason’s libertarian-leaning Mercatus Center.

    Well, here in OH Sen. Howard Metzen baum (D-OH) used to call gun owners “zombies” (for supporting the NRA), “blood-crazed” (for not supporting the AWB) and “Rambos from Hell” (just on general principles).

    And Ted Kennedy pretty much wanted all gun owners eaten while still alive.

    So Cuomo’s repartee’ really isn’t all that unique on the (D) side of the aisle.

    clear ether

    You’re a fuckin’ loser. Go masturbate with your guns and leave politics to people with more than a single-digit IQ.
