Forget the law-abiding gun owners who’ve seen their Second Amendment rights eradicated. Andrew Cuomo is looking at the big picture and how he can get himself some of that Hollywood money when he makes his White House bid. Why care about the people that pay his salary when he can suck up to the Hollywood elites?
Just a month after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the strictest gun control law in the country, state officials plan to make some exemptions.
The law toughened restrictions on military-style rifles and high-capacity semiautomatic handguns, but those restrictions will be changed so those types of weapons can be used on the sets of television shows and movies being shot in New York.
“We spend a lot of money in the state bringing movie production here, post production here. So obviously we would want to facilitate that,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo said the prop firearms used in films would probably not be classified as an assault weapon.
“But people want certainty and there’s no reason not to make a change like that,” the governor added. “Apparently, they have blanks or they have phony magazines or something.”
He should know about phonies.
