Governor Andrew Cuomo is already in hot water with gun owners for his support of NY’s unconstitutional “SAFE Act” which limits the gun rights of gun owners more than almost every other state. But now he apparently doesn’t even want pro gun supporters in his state at all.
We always knew Cuomo wanted to get rid of gun owners so he could push through even more restrictive gun laws (which have no effect on criminals and put restrictive burdens on those wanting to exercise their constitutional rights), but I didn’t think he had the guts to actually SAY it out loud. But it looks like I was wrong.
According to the Times Union, Cuomo is upset that Republicans are running against the SAFE act and is blaming the passage of the law on moderate Republicans instead of his own party which makes up the majority.
“You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
Of course by “assault weapon” the Governor means common semi-automatic rifles that LOOK like military issue rifles because they have a scary looking adjustable stock or pistol grip.
And if you support your right to own these guns that millions of other Americans own, then it looks like you have no place in New York. Cuomo doesn’t want you there. But for hundreds of thousands of other New Yorkers in the state, the feeling is mutual. They don’t want Cuomo there either.
We’d love to hear from our New York readers who have any thoughts on these comments. Any gun owner in this state has no respect from us if they plan to vote for this guy again.
