Will it stop jihadis from flying into buildings? Bombing Synagogues? TRYING to bomb Broadway theaters?

I thought not.

"It’s about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles."

What about the risk of demented feral youths with illegal guns? What are you going to do about that?

The risk of demented BATFE hitting the wrong house?

The demented BATFE enticing regular peeps to do something against the idiotic laws of 1934 and 1968?

How about a hearing protection gun law?

If assault weapons are banned only criminals and government thugs will have assault weapons.

Meanwhile, Cuomo is closing down the half-way houses that ensure mental patients are taking their meds. Didn't we learn that 50% of the time in incidents such as Sandy Hook that mental illness is a major contributing factor? Maybe Cuomo is off his meds too.

Here come the crazies (Cuomo, Obama, to release more mental patients)

If Cuomo wants a pissing match to see which governor can be the biggest traitor. HE WINS. Thus far.

Looks like he's pretty far along this old trick.

First we'll go for their magazines,
few will speak out because they can keep the small ones.

Then we'll go for the "assault weapons",
few will speak out because we'll let them keep other long guns.

Then we'll go for all long guns,
few will speak out because we'll let them keep the handguns.

Then we'll go for the handguns,
Got 'em!. (But we've kept ours.)

They definitely won't make it past the third one.

***It has been enough. We need a gun policy in this state that is reasonable, that is balanced, that is measured.***

But, would it have stopped 19 moslem arabs with boxcuttersfrom killing 3000 people on 9-11-201?

If these new laws would not have stopped that, then the Governor is just pi$$ing into the wind.

[Mr. Cuomo predicted the rest of the country will follow New York’s lead and adopt stiffer gun laws.]

Four years to go until 2016 and Cuomo is already launching his presidential campaign. “The rest of the country” is worried about whether they'll still have a job a week from now.

All over the great state of New York, one suspects that law abiding, tax paying, (sometimes business owning and employee employing) gun owners are planning to sell their homes (and businesses) and move to Second Amendment-friendly states.

One suspects that the financial loss to New York state from out-migrating legal firearm owners will be swift and staggering in magnitude.

Oh, and violent criminals? Guess where they are headed.

IMO this will be a test for the Communists/Progressives to test the waters of the electorate in the US. If it flies there they will likely try it soon in over half of the States. I wonder if New Yorkers will roll over and take it willingly without a fight?

There’s always bio weapons, chemical weapons.

Since most mass murderers usually end up killing themselves, suicide bombings are the most likely replacement if assault weapons are harder to obtain. soft targets are still likely targets.

Good, so when Texas decides to take over New York, we will not have to fire a single shot to do it. We will then take the statue of Liberty into protective custody and move it to Texas, since there is no more liberty in New York. We will use New York as our export market for illegal aliens booted out of our restored and Free Republic.

Wait, you mean the 2nd Amendment isn't as follows??

"A heavily controlled citizenry, being necessary to the subservience of an ignoble serfdom, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be allowed."

Which reminds me, I sold my “pre ban” AK-47, with Bayonet and three 30 Round Magazines, to a retired NYPD Detective a few years ago.

I had decided I didn't like being a “Registered” Assault Weapon Owner in CA, so I got rid of the AK and bought a CA Legal AR-15. It has the silly 10 Round Magazine with a “Bullet Button”.

Thank goodness a relative of mine in the Midwest is babysitting four 30 round Magazines for me.

I am through “Registering” anything with the CA and D.C. Nazis currently ruling us. The line has been drawn.

I never thought I might end up as a Political Prisoner in an American Gulag, but it isn't beyond the realm of possibility. We are now living in a Twilight Zone episode.

Well Governor guns are not the problem your state has...

The Empire State is being drained of an invaluable resource—people. From 2000 to 2008, in both absolute and relative terms, New York experienced the nation’s largest loss of residents to other states—a net domestic migration outflow of over 1.5 million, or 8 percent of its population at the start of the decade

And in other parts of the nation we have communities swearing to abide by the Second Amendment and are agreeing to elect their local militia leader, organizing a depot and training area.

Whole towns heading to some form of staging area for instructions of strategy, communication and general military procedures. All across America, it could be at a fairgrounds or convention center. Food supplies are being gathered and emergency shelters prepared plus any logistics needed to transport that areas militia to a strategic area.

Of course we don’t think this is happening because its not hitting the news, it is somewhere, right now. And if it hasn’t started in your area start asking why not.

Somebody in the know, please tell me the political party make up of the N.Y. House and Senate.

If it’s anywhere near 50/50 either way, this political bloviating bastard doesn’t stand a chance. Democrats are gun owners too. It’s the very far wacked out left that support these laws, not many of the law abiding democrats do.

Liberal insane bastard gov Pat Quinn just found this out in Illinois.

I'm glad he's doing this. It needs to be done. If you live in a liberal state and vote for liberals, you deserve to be disarmed. If you live in a liberal state and are conservative...leave.

The more liberal states that voluntarily disarm themselves the better. That will make it easier if and when the shooting starts.

All this will accomplish is to turn law-abiding citizens into felons.

Remember...Andrew Cuomo is the only positive story for the Democrat party from the 2010 election cycle and since the the Democrats have lost ever more governorships. Of coarse, the mainstream media has lionized him and will continue to do so ever though he has no real accomplishments. His phony tax cap is a prime example.

Cuomo wisely co-opted his greatest likely critic in Fred Dicker (NY Post) by giving him an exclusive book deal to do a biography.

Cuomo is all about image management.
