"Now my kids have police in front of their school. I mean you wonder how far it’s going to go," one mother from Larchmont said.

Sasha and Malia get that kind of protection every day. Stop complaining, beeeyotch.

Once you start parsing gun rights, you’ve defined the need for the second amendment.

Duomo and his co-conspirators have legions of armed guards.

Wake up, America.

None of those “sweeping” new restrictions will do anything to stop the next mass shooting. Then the liberals/dems will say just a few more restrictions (which won’t attack the problem) are necessary to stop the violence

and on

and on

and on

Saskatchewan and Malaysia get that kind of protection every day? Plus the school also has 10-11 armed guards, doesn’t it?

Not surpised when you can get arrested in NYC just for carrying a small pocket knife.

It looks like piling-on. Politicians are all going to try to out do each other in creating more restrictive gun law platforms.

We can expect to see regulatory creep much like the anti-smoking lobby used so successfully. Remember when they just wanted their own section in restaurants?

______________________________
So lady, if they pass Cuomo’s agenda you will feel your kids are safer and the armed security at their school will no longer be needed? Are you nuts?

This whole thing is a mental health issue and not a firearms issue. Keep the crazies off the street and your kids will be safer. Keep the crazies on the street and disarm the citizens and we are all in trouble.

Unless it includes enforcement against criminals who have guns, it is only an assault on innocent gun owners.

A deal to give New York one of the toughest gun control laws in the nation is being negotiated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who, sources said Tuesday, is hoping to announce the plan Wednesday during his State of the State speech in Albany.

Cuomo hopes to jump-start the 2013 legislative session with a big deal that could dramatically alter gun control laws across the state.

This jackball is going to run for President, Hitlery is not...her age and health will not allow it.

Cuomo will try to do what his daddy couldn't do...and the press, instead of poking fun at him like they did to Dubya, will hail him for coming from a "Legendary Dynasty".

Beware of Cuomo. He wants to kill your liberty almost as much as Obama.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, right......

The Second Amendment is for chumps, I guess. Who the f*** needs to obey the Constitution, right Cuomo?

I say we hang signs along highways entering NY State that say “Hey Criminals! Welcome! It’s now OPEN SEASON!”

Every bit as vile as his father. I owned guns in NYC. It cost more for the license than the gun, and the bureaucratic hoops one had to jump through were beyond belief. Now he wants to spread the joy around to the rest of the state, huh? When is he up for reelection?

I don’t hear a word about the guns on the street. This is blatantly against law abiding citizens. They are going to do this one state at a time..state government doing the feds’ bidding .. and if no one stops it in NY, they will go to the next one. No one stops it at the next one.. they figure they are home free. Where is the outcry? Where is the refusal? They make the laws and then wait for a citizen to use a gun? Do they expect to have the guns turned in? Do they expect the local police to go house to house?

“It is polarizing,” Cuomo said.

That is exactly the reason that Obama picked this issue at this time. Pushing gun control keeps his base in line behind him for all the other battles that he plans to fight. Obama knows that he doesn’t have a mandate to ruin the economy, raise taxes and push Obamacare costs, but as long as he keeps demagoguing gun control, he’s got a winning issue with the “low information” voters.

Now there’s a recipe for disaster right there.

If he resigns in order to run, at least New York will be shut of him. But only if he loses the Presidency. If he wins, watch out. You also have to find all of his horcruxes and destroy them without him twigging, or he’ll come back, just like last time.

The law already exercises far more control over firearms than Andrew Cuomo can exercise over his own reproductive urges.

Why someone so outside the mainstream can be considered some sort of leading voice of the Democrats is beyond all understanding.

Andy, didn't St.Paul teach that if you can't deal with it cut it off?

lp boonie~: “ This whole thing is a mental health issue and not a firearms issue. Keep the crazies off the street and your kids will be safer. Keep the crazies on the street and disarm the citizens and we are all in trouble.”

You spoke of the missing key that ALL the media and police investigations have OVERLOOKED !! ~ we no longer isolate the potential killers on medications , society wants to “Mainstream “ them, put them back in the community.
They close all the psychiatric hospitals , and then wonder how this slaughter occurs.

As much as the moderators don’t like WMD.com , they have an excellent article on all the “mass murderers “ and the psychiatric /psychotrophic medications that the mass killers were taking.
The correlation is striking !! .. and thoght provoking
ALL the killers were either on medications , ..or were supposed to be taking psyhiatric medications.

The problem isn’t the guns !
The problem is all the crazies mainstreamed in their communities .
This is a “feel good “ , ‘knee-jerk ‘ reaction that the Dems are good for , .. especially if you want to run for President.

Right! And 1 ... 5 ... 10 years after this law is enacted, when the murder rate in NYC is unchanged (or goes up), you won't hear a peep from the liberals about how their hastily drawn up gun grab was a failure.

Being a liberal is never having to say you're sorry ... or wrong.
