A Long Island Republican says his vote in favor of New Yorks new gun-control law was a mistake and is now co-sponsoring a bill to repeal it.
Freshman Sen. Phil Boyle, R-Suffolk County, issued a news release on Friday detailing his change of heart, criticizing the way the bill was rushed through the Legislature. The new lawknown as the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Actviolates the Second Amendment, Boyle claims.
From Boyles statement:
The so-called SAFE act was a mistake. Its passage lacked transparency and public input and its wording was ill-conceived and of questionable legality. Lawmakers ...

Um....ya know what? If some RINO needs to vote YEA for a piece of Communist crap legislation before he realizes it was a mistake needs to either learn to read or get a frakkin’ backbone. Either way, he is unfit to hold the office he was elected to.

Another scumbag politician trying to have it both ways.
He will be able to debate himself in the next election campaign.
A “mistake”? A mistake is dialing the wrong telephone number. You very purposely went along with this power grab.
Own it and burn, turd.
Anyone who votes for these treasonous (yes, treasonous) bills is not fit to hold office and should be run out of town on a rail. Vote yes to bills like this and you become the enemy forever.....no other way to say it.
IT’S TIME TO BRING THESE SCUMBAGS TO THE HANGING TREE!!!
I guess the putz had to pass it to find out what was in it.
Looks like his neighbors saw things differently.... what a dimwit....
Ain’t no such thing as a legislative mulligan.
” Either way, he is unfit to hold the office he was elected to.”
Agreed. If Boyle is trying to make amends for his useful idiot vote, he should be calling for the treason trial of the Nazi Cuomo.
People need to realize that sides are being chosen.
Either you got the kahones to confront the fat-ass, 80 IQ, 400-pound federal slugs or you don’t.
Political theater. He delivered for his masters, and now he is testing to see how stupid his voters are. Probably as stupid as he takes them for.
Surely there is a TEA Party member who can run against this clueless Rep. If you can’t understand the bill, check out who is supporting it. That ought to give you all the information you need.
Give him a break. A bill was rushed through in a nighttime session. He didn’t have time to read it or even think about it. He barely had enough time to vote.
It’s simple, Phil. You voted for it, you own it.
Wow! Are some finally figuring out that the Scam on Assault Weapons wasnt such a good idea and that there really isnt a massive groundswell to dispense with liberty?
