New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Hatred Of The Second Amendment Knows No Bounds

Andrew Cuomo poses with Moms Demand Action Scum

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hates guns, all kinds of guns. He hates them with a passion. His vehement disdain for these inanimate objects rests on the ground that, as he perceives it, they serve no legitimate or useful purpose. Guns do kill, of course. That fact isn’t to be denied. But, there is a huge difference between guns in the hands of criminals and lunatics, on the one hand, and guns in the hands of law-abiding, trained individuals, on the other—a world of difference that antigun zealots don’t seem to recognize or appreciate; or, if they do, then it is something they simply refuse to acknowledge.

Criminals and lunatics use guns to threaten life and to destroy innocent life. Law-abiding rational citizens use guns to thwart threats by criminals and lunatics, in order to protect their life and other innocent life.

The mainstream media and antigun zealots invariably conflate the two or otherwise skirt this critical difference. Why do they do this? They do so because drawing attention to a clear and obvious difference between misuse of guns by criminals and lunatics, on the one hand, and the proper, lawful use of guns for self-defense by the law-abiding citizen, on the other hand, doesn’t fit the false and shameless narrative antigun zealots wish to convey: that no concrete difference exists between proper lawful use and improper illegal use of firearms.

Thus, Cuomo and other Radical Leftists refuse even so much as to acknowledge, even if grudgingly, the benefits a firearm affords the average law-abiding citizen. After all, they have a fairy tale to tell the public. And it is that the armed citizen is somehow less safe when confronted by an assailant and that society, too, is more threatened by an armed citizenry.

Removing firearms from the hands of the average, honest, rational, law-abiding American citizen is their raison d'etre. So, Cuomo and the Radical Left elements that comprise antigun groups continue their call for ever more restrictive gun laws; weaving a fable—one consistent with both the tenets of Collectivism and with their own warped political, social, and ethical view of society and of the role and place of the citizen in that society. The Second Amendment is an anathema to them. Thus, they seek no less than the eventual destruction of the Second Amendment.

It is the American citizenry, itself, that antigun zealots, like Cuomo, seek to disarm; it isn't the criminal element and the occasional lunatic they are really intent on disarming. If Cuomo's true aim and that of the Radical Left, pertaining to gun ownership and gun possession, remains hidden, then it is hidden in plain view.

The plain fact of the matter is that Cuomo and other Progressives and Radical Leftists do not truly consider the Bill of Rights to be a salient component of the Constitution. Yet, the Ten Amendments, that comprise our Bill of Rights, must be taken together, as the framers intended, as one, unified whole, and an integral and critical component of the U.S. Constitution.

Cuomo and those who agree with is political and social philosophy play with the Ten Amendments, pretending that these Ten Amendments—fundamental, primordial, bestowed on man by the Divine Creator—are, in their inception, nothing more than man-made constructions, not unlike any Congressional Statute, which they are not. But, this is the tacit assumption and fiction that informs all the policy decisions and aims of Cuomo and of the other Radical Leftists, who hold to, and place their faith in, the tenets of Collectivism.

How often have New York residents heard this third-term Governor, Cuomo, bombastically asserting that he took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, even as his actions invariably belie his words?

Governor Cuomo, and others who express his sentiments, reject the Second Amendment out-of-hand—a critical component of and, in fact, one of the most important components of the Constitution, as a Free Republic would not long exist without it. Yet, Cuomo and others of his political and social persuasion couldn’t care less about the Constitution, even as they exclaim, disingenuously and hypocritically, that they do.

Andrew Cuomo is Absolutely Apoplectic About Both Guns and Civilian Ownership and Possession Of Guns

Americans must not forget that Cuomo’s obsession with guns, generally, and with civilian ownership and possession of guns, particularly, isn’t something he concocted out-of-the-blue, and it didn't happen yesterday. Having been able to use his State, New York, as a test-bed for his radical antigun policies to play out, Cuomo’s attack on the Second Amendment commenced many years ago, on January 1, 2011, during his first term in Office. Cuomo’s agenda then took shape over time, rapidly gathering steam, during the course of his first four-year term in Office, as New York’s Governor. Let Americans be ever mindful of that.

As reported by the weblog Observer, in an article published on January 9, 2013, titled, ‘Cuomo Vows to ‘Enact the Toughest Assault Weapon Ban in the Nation, Period!'

“One of the most hotly anticipated elements of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s annual State of the State address today [to the New York Legislature, delivered on Jan 9, 2013] was his plan to enact ‘sweeping’ gun control reforms in New York. In his speech, the governor outlined a seven-point gun control plan focused on “high-capacity assault rifles” that he promised would be one of the ‘toughest’ in the nation and lead similar laws to spread beyond New York.

The governor outlined the items on his seven-point gun plan.

‘Number one: Enact the toughest assault weapon ban in the nation, period!' he shouted, before ticking off his other new gun control proposals. ‘Number two, close the private sale loophole by requiring federal background checks. Number three, ban high-capacity magazines. Number four, enact tougher penalties for illegal gun use, guns in school grounds and violent gangs. Number five, keep guns from people who are mentally ill. Number six, ban direct internet sales of ammunition in New York. Number seven, create a state [National Instant Criminal Background Check System] check on all ammunition purchases.’

[To this 7 Point list, we can now add, Cuomo’s 8th Point: “On Monday, February 25, 2019, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Red Flag Bill into law at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He was joined by many of his colleagues in New York State government, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to celebrate this new legislation, the first in the nation of its kind. . . .” (Source: John Jay College of Criminal Justice), Mr. Cuomo predicting the rest of the country will follow New York’s lead and adopt stiffer gun laws].

By the end of the speech, the governor was shouting.”

Cuomo never intended his antigun agenda to be confined to one State. His agenda was much more ambitious. On October 30, 2015, The New York Times exclaimed, in an article titled, “Cuomo Planning Role in National Gun Control Campaign,” that Cuomo anticipated national attention. “ ‘The political climate is right again for action,’ ” said Mr. Cuomo, who has endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for president. He added, ‘The appetite is there, I think, in the presidential election, especially in the Democratic primary but also in the general election.’ ” Well, that didn’t come to pass and Governor Cuomo obviously never forgave Donald Trump for having had the audacity to win the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, and thereby dashing Cuomo’s hope of implementation of a National NY Safe Act—dashing Cuomo's hope of adding an important feather in “Chief Cuomo’s” own headdress. See article in the weblog, “Syracuse,” posted on April 29, 2019, titled, “Cuomo to Trump on gun violence: You have done nothing but tweet.”

Don’t for a moment think that the incessant, vicious, virulent attack on the Second Amendment won't factor as a major issue in the upcoming 2020 U.S. Presidential election, as Democrats gear up for the debates, beginning this month. It most definitely will! And Cuomo will, no doubt, be cheering the Candidates on, all the way.

    1. The State of NY is the proving ground for the rest of the country Governor Cuomo is doing nothing different that those the came before including his father. “Andrew Cuomo” Their family name reminds me everytime I read about him or pass CNN that our personal freedom is in question not just in NY but all across our country.
      Democrats this day 6/26/19 in congress headlined that we have crisis at our Southern border and now blame President Trump now that is funny.They have passed a bill that will never make it through the senate or reach the president’s desk I hope.
      Andrew Cuomo is now giving out NYS driver’s licenses to illegals that will be good across the country along with California giving tax payer free health to illegals and who knows what else. Democrats fear a public that can fight back in the end that is what it will come to.
      The forty year old and younger still living in their parents basements will not have the will to up hold our civil rights as they have been taught not to. The left has changed and is now rewriting or removing history while no longer teaching this subject in schools. Those inner city gang members grow daily with each illegal allowed to live in our great country this gift by the democrats in Washington the two largest cities in our country both controlled by crazy democratic governors and congressmen and women.
      I moved out of that cesspool NY that I loved so much to a state where you are allowed to protect yourself and family, yes rules still apply. We have open carry laws along with concealed licenses issued for those of us that do not want to advertise the fact we are armed. We do not have to flee our homes if confronted we have the castle doctrine here where I call home and my license is good in 28 other states to carry concealed abiding by each states rules as their guest.
      I read today that folks should flee these coastal states stripping them of a tax paying work force and a better life for their families. JUST DO IT

    2. Cuomo the homo is scared sh*tless of armed citizens because he knows that his record on abortion (murder NY style), and all the other liberal agendas he advocates are so radical that one day he’ll be held accountable for his actions, most likely by citizens overthrowing him, or exacting justice.

    3. The NY SAFE Act is the blueprint for unconstitutional laws across the nation. The new Commiefornia ammo background check law is direct from the NY SAFE Act.
      Cuomo DID get his unconstitutional law passed, and all but his SEVEN round limit for magazines was HELD UP IN FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT. (7 was determined to be arbitrary – and the limit bumped to 10)
      (Supreme Court??? Anywhere??? Any time now??? Uphold the Constitution???)
      It’s OK for now.
      Cuomo’s NY SAFE Act has a 4% compliance rate!
      Americans are NOT surrendering the Second Amendment to these progressive sonofabitches!
      For now it is a stand-off – nobody is confiscating – and nobody is shooting progressive sonofabitch politicians.

    4. Has there ever been a worse governor? This guy doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground. Ten years time this state will be destroyed. I am only happy that I’m retiring out of this hell hole to a God loving, low tax state that respects the ability to defend yourself and to defend infants in the third trimester. Cuomo will burn in hell.

    5. I don’t know what to do anymore. Even if the voting system isn’t rigged in his favor, us upstaters have no say what so ever in any policy or laws put in place by this tyrant or any other. The entire country would benefit from a French style revolution, where all the blue bloods are removed from power.

      1. @DAE, How are you going to get the entire country to engage in a French style revolution? New irregular, wonky, cockeyed methods are needed. And don’t depend upon other people. Depend on your friends Silence Patience, and Reconnaissance .

    6. You can always tell when a particular government has gone off the rails. Their elected leaders always look like gangsters in suits. Evil to the core and seething with desire to make themselves more absolute in power. How blind are the electorate?

      1. “How blind are the electorate?” LOL! I have been trying, over the ‘years,’ to point out the LIE that all our talking heads and elected representatives(?) have been spewing constantly: “The American People Are NOT Stupid.” Perhaps ‘most’ may not be stupid, but the “electorate” that puts these type of people in positions to INFLUENCE their very lives and FREEDOMS is STUPID! Check how many ‘anti-American’ representatives have been added to that already incompetent, contemptible, Congress of the United States. What part of SMART are any of these people?

        Scary thing is, two of the most populous states in the lower 48 are LOST, NY and CA are all but irredeemable! More are following, because their demographics have been and are changed by our out-of-control immigration policies. If these whacks are NOT kicked out, jailed even, the handwriting is on the wall: 3d World Status Is Not Far Off. My benefit, I’m old and hopefully will never see it actually happen to the America I grew up in, but this America is already FAR removed from that one!

        1. Polling at the time the NY SAFE Act was passed was 80% in favor of banning black rifles. Ya’ll can have all the anger you want for Cuomo, but it is our neighbors and relatives in this effed up State that are to blame. Hate them. The politicians are just taking their cue.

          And for you cocky souls in the flyover country, your day is coming. The leftists will colonize your states, and demographically, the gun culture is dying in the US. As the WWII generation fades, and the boomers recede as a political force, there will be few citizens who grew up with guns in their households. It is either grow the gun culture by cultivating new shooters, or perish. And to grow we need to start including and marketing to non traditional groups of Americans including, ahem, gays, moslems, women, immigrants, blacks and all the “riff raff” that have historically been ostracized at gun clubs, gun shops and shooting forums.

    7. It seems that Cuomo is in violation of his Oath of office that he signed and file per Article XIII, Section 1 of the New York State Constitution and therefore should be removed from office.

      1. Yeah, that asshole hates guns except in the hands of his body guards. New York state is being controlled by New York City, same as Illinois is controlled by “Shitcago.”

      2. cuomo, the “emperor” has “royally decreed” himself and his democommunist minions the ONLY “government” of N.Y….. He had openly “royally decreed” in his “speeches” he WILL ignore the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, his SWORN oath of office, and install “HIS OWN PROGRESSIVE (COMMUNIST) government in N.Y” ) to make N.Y. the most “progressive” state in the union) can you say COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP???
        This to me. is an example of a CORRUPT CRIMINAL:TRAITOR to this state, (and this, country,) and this egotistical BASTARD (and his DEMOCOMMUNIST minions) ALL need to be removed from office, arrested, tried, convicted, and HANGED for TREASON.

    8. Cuomo is a mental case. He is completely evil and a menace to society as a whole. One day his utopia will come crashing down around his head and hopefully it will be enough to take him the rest of the way to insanity. If there has ever been anyone who deserved the worst and most horrible sickness mankind has to offer it is Andrew Cuomo. I feel so sorry for the people of New York that do not support him.

    9. Cuomo does NOT hate the Second Amendment–he hates conservatism and people backed freedom, the Second Amendment is just in his and that of other super top liberals way of their real goal. Okay, he is a low I.Q. guy too…

    10. Cuomo is unhinged. Just wait when he finds out the case against the NRA is going to be lost…and NY State is going to be on the hook for a hundreds of millions…That should put him over the edge.
      Or, when SCOTUS rescinds the unlawful carry law NY city has gotten away with for years…

      1. Lets hope so brother.

        I wish this guy would do the world a favor and stop sharing oxygen the rest of us. I hope the surprise you’re talkin about is enough to give him a heart attack.

    11. Hay, Not all of us New Yorker’s voted for the dictator (in albany). It seems only the ones with money, the ones who have been BRAINWASHED, and other ill-informed people think they are better off with Cuomo. BAD THINKING. Some of us Know our RIGHTS are being VIOLATED But the BIG CITIES OVER RULED US.

        1. @DontTreadOnMe…NJ & Conn. should have similar forums, and team up with NY. They need to put those TRAITORS back in their boxes. The will must be there, considering their non-compliance with the illegal, unconstitutional gun laws passed by the Bolsheviks in each of those States, and all they need to do is get organized into a cohesive, powerful group of Patriots. And they need to get out and vote those miscreants out of office.

      1. Gray V Sanders, and Reynolds v Sims put all of us in a position where a few major urban cities run politics for the entire nation. These cases need to be set aside so that in bicameral state legislatures we can return to a Federal Model of government where one house is mob dominated but the other has equal representation for each county in any given state. California had this by referendum until 1964…..the beginning of the end for us. CFR v Padilla is a federal suit hoping to begin to Right this wrong…visit Soj51.org to learn more. We can win, we can fix this if conservatives, Christians and gun owners would just show up and VOTE!!!

      1. Your generalization is as ignorant as it gets. I live in NY and am a fierce defender of the 2nd Amendment. NY has about 20 million residents, unfortunately half of them live in NYC. When the NY “UN” Safe Act was passed, illegally, in the middle of the night (literally) 52 of 62 total counties in the state passed resolutions OPPOSING the tyrannical law.

        Upstate NY is as rural a place as you can find in this country, but sadly the entire state is controlled by the city. That still leaves about half the population that is forced to live with the tyrants.

        There are millions of gun owners in this state, and we need to stick together. I personally donate to campaigns for pro-gun politicians and 2nd Amendment causes in other states. I write letters opposing anti-gun legislation in other states! Do you?

        1. @DontTread…How old is that BloomingIdiot with all the dollars and no sense you New Yorkers are afflicted with now ? How much longer will he be on this planet to bribe and otherwise finance his politician friends to subvert the Cinstitution ? Did you ever wonder how these oligarchs get to very old ages and still have the energy to make life miserable for everyone else ? Look at Soros, Bloomberg, Feinstein, Kissinger, and their ilk. Are they living off Adrenochrome ? I think they should be drug tested. Something is twisting their minds, that’s for sure.

    12. “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
      Thomas Jefferson

      “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
      Thomas Jefferson

      “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
      Thomas Jefferson

      Weapon prohibitionists can be broken down into seven major categories. Even though their motives may vary they all pose a mortal threat to liberty. Tell me which one do you qualify under?
      ELITISTS?
      AUTHORITARIANS?
      CRIMINALS?
      THE FEARFUL?
      IDEOLOGICAL CHAMELEONS?
      SECURITY MONOPOLISTS?
      THE DYSFUNCTIONALLY UNWORLDLY?

      Do What I Say Not What I Do! Their demands are the foundation of their Lies for control and Power.
      Progressivism is still a form of oppression by government control, confiscation of guns, punishment for “hate speech and hate crimes” as decided by the powers that be, diluted education which shapes a compliant global citizenry with no recognition or much knowledge of who they are and their real history, no distinct nationality, and no divergent opinions from those expressed by the government in power and its mouthpiece, the zealous press core.
      People who understand what is at stake seem to be either helpless to stop this sinking into neo-communist/progressivism abyss, are too old and tired, or are oblivious to the inherent existential danger to our civilized society.
      Anti-constitutionalist’s sense of morality is situational, based on incident and emotion, instead of rooted in God’s word and law.
      Anti-constitutionalist’s stand for nothing. The situation determines their support for an issue and their emotions rule, not reason and rationality.
      Moreover, they recognize the contradiction, but still cling to their situational justice. Situational justice is the tool of dictators, tyrants, despots, and unjust, unrighteous monarchs. It has no place in a Free Constitutional Republic. In which the United States of America is…

      Anti-Constitutionalist’s=Anti-Americans=Enemies of the United States…

      1. Those seven categories you list can be consolidated under one heading: socialist. Those who would disarm citizens who have broken no law have an agenda, and that is the ultimate elimination of all rights enumerated in the Constitution.

        Negotiating with a socialist is incremental surrender.

    13. What a out people who have guns to hunt with for dinner cuz I know people who are hunters what will happen we will lose our right to bear arms and then not ha e food on the table he needs to go back to the country he came from people been having guns longer then hes been born dont get me started I hate him with a passion I wish someone new would come in office and he see how it is I bet he has guns in hiding because if people find out he did he would be called a hypocrite has someone searched his home for guns I bet not

      1. His daddy had a string of nursing homes that was investigated for Medicare and insurance fraud. The accountants uncovered plentiful evidence, but, as usual with these mob connected oligarchs, the evidence was suppressed, and his daddy walked. And the son was brought up on wealth stolen from the taxpayers. Or so a lot of people in the know say. Most politicians today are members of a criminal enterprise whose sole purpose is self enrichment. The money they steal for themselves generates a deficit that is tacked onto the National Debt, which will be borne by generations not yet born. They want Americans disarmed, because some day the people will wake up to this crime, and they will be righteously outraged. They wouldn’t have to fear an unarmed citizenry.

      1. It’s a race between him and Governor Phil Murphy- who gets taken out by their respective states law abiding gun owners first. Can’t wait to see this in the evening news one faithful day soon.

        1. “There are three and only three ways, to reform our congressional legislation. The representative, judicial and belligerent principle alone can be relied on; or as they are more familiarly called, the ballot box, the jury box and the cartouch (cartridge) box. The two first are constitutional, the last revolutionary.” ~ Stephen Decatur Miller October 9, 1830.

          Please initiate action in that order. Violence should be a last resort unless it be in response to violent criminality.

    14. They’re bunch of hypocrytes, mom’s demand action and cuomos. Here they have armed bodyguards and some of us in certain states can’t defend ourselves like NO MY M.D.

      1. My fear is that he must have escaped the set of Planet of the Apes and now what do we do with him? He looks pissed off and there’s nothing more worst than a pissed off Ape.

      2. @Michael G, Only if one presumes that a firearm would be used against him. The Patriots of NY will use the vote not the firearm to get rid of this tyrant. If it had to come to violence, the patriots would use asymmetrical weapons and tactics.

      3. Don’t confuse hatred with common sense New York’s going to stay the way it is if you don’t like it move out west with the rest of the Rednecks FaceTime

    15. With all the things going on and guns of the lawful citizens are of the highest priority to every politician. Above the Iran issue even or the border issue. This should be of concern to those looking to protect themselves. You know something very big is coming because Trump is signaling he will be President for many more years to come beyond expectations and the only way that happens is martial law. You should make note and be advised. We are all very far from being out of the fire. Very far. This ride is terribly far from the finish line.

            1. Trump and Cuomo despise one another. Mario Cuomo took a lot of money from Trump back in the day but got screwed over by Mario. Remember, Don is still a social liberal, which is weird why Hollywood had an issue with him. Don was also a big time Democrat as well. He looked into what would essentially would be a third party with people like Jessie Jackson back in the 90’s. So there is a lot of bad blood there. If Trump were to win, Andy knows he is going to feel the Wrath of Trump, and rightfully so.

            2. Trump is the only thing holding it all together at the moment. Note that I say for the moment. Moments don’t typically last long that’s why they are moments.

      1. #EmperorAndrew sharpened his teeth on restrictive gun policies starting with his time in the #ClintonCrimeSyndicate White House.
        Our lawsuit showed that there was a 96% non-compliance rate with the “assault rifle” registry mandates of the #unSAFEAct. If that’s not nullification I have no idea what would be. We simply do not comply…
        #Clintons also taught him the fine art of plausible deniability, which has been the only thing keeping him and his #NYMafia cronies out of Federal prison, unfortunately…
        GH
        Director, Gun Owners of America/NY

    16. Is it just me or, does this nut look like a mob boss? He acts like one. If someone conducts themselves like a tyrant it would be normal that people treat him like a tyrant. His words and actions resemble the grade school bully. It would be a good bet that he himself has guns and/or he has an armed escort wherever he goes. I suppose he thinks he is better, smarter, wiser than anyone else in N.Y. Most of the time, people who act as he does have their hand in the till somewhere. Maybe he has a conscience. He hides his ideals and greed behind his “victims for hire”. Terrorists do these things. Tyrants do these things. A good, basic rule in life is to treat others like you wish to be treated. What a world this could be if people everywhere lived that one.

      A big part of Hitler’s rise to power/authority was cemented when he registered and subsequently banned and then confiscated guns. Hitler said it was for “a kinder, gentler nation”. Most of us who have not been forced to study revisionist history know how that turned out. Cuomo says many of the things Hitler did. Evil will always be a evil. Evil is what evil does. You can pretend it isn’t evil but it won’t change what it does, it will only give it more time to accomplish it’s goals.

      The defining action that caused the war for freedom and independence happened when the British tried to stop their “subjects” being armed. The British marched on Concord to prevent the “colonials” their means of self defense. History does tend to repeat itself. Those in authority had done all they could to keep their subjects subject to their every whim. There was no freedom. Their was no justice. There was no representation in relation to the taxes imposed on the colonies. The colonies had begged and pleaded their cases to ole George for years. George had answered them with threats, intimidation, lies, coercion, violence, more taxes and even death. Does any of this sound like something you hear in the news lately?

      Government’s job is to preserve and defend the freedoms, rights, liberty and life of the people. When a government becomes destructive to these ends it is in the right of the people to alter or abolish it and to create new government. The United States of America is one of only two nations in the world that are based upon Judeo/Christian principals and laws. This is how and why we have been blessed so much. It is sad beyond words that our elected leaders would turn their backs on this fact and disavow their oaths of office. There is a word that describes what they are doing. It is treason. Treason carries with it the ultimate penalty, death. With the ballot boxes being “fixed” and no hope of righteous reform there is little hope of the elected actually living up to their oath of office. To a politician the writing of law is job justification. It would be a good bet that none of the politicians either in office or out of office could know and understand them all. In the effort for justification, they come up with more laws. There can be no justice when one holds no law higher than themselves.

      Arm up, carry on.

    17. Cuomouth’s Great Wet Dream of eventual total civilian disarmament will not happen for him. 120 million American gun owners who own upwards of 1 BILLION guns will not let it happen. Take it to the bank! What’s that, you say, you don’t think we own that many guns? Then let me give you a little food for thought, and get your calculator ready:

      Assume that each of the estimated 120 million gun owners owns at least one gun. BUT, most of those 120 million gun owners are NOT just one-gun gun owners. They may have one or more guns devoted to personal protection. Many are also involved in various aspects and disciplines of the shooting sports, such as hunting, recreational target shooting, and organized competition in such disciplines as Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays, IDPA, IPSC, T3G, CAS, vintage military rifle matches and others, and will own multiple firearms associated with each of them. As a for-instance, Cowboy Action Shooters (CAS) might have 12 or more guns devoted to just that. Then you have gun collectors, many of whom specialize in collecting firearms of a certain make, caliber, gauge and/or eras of history. Many gun owners are involved in several or even ALL of the aforementioned categories. When you consider that, and do some quick math, you will find that the actual number of firearms owned in the US could easily approach 1 BILLION, and possibly more.
      We gun owners vote with frightening regularity and predictability, we are NOT going away, nor will we meekly surrender our firearms to those who would take them from us. Not now, not EVER!

      1. Don’t be too sure. If the Dems finally figure out to cheat successfully, he will be the running mate of their nominee..most likely Heels up Harris.
        Both are former AG’s and are from two of the most progressive and pro illegal alien states in the country. King Andy is very close to the Clintonian Empire and was HUD Secretary (responsible for the eventual housing crash) under Bill. Kammy will in time find herself “despondent” when she hears about her future “suicide”. Emperor Andy the 1st will then assume his throne.

        1. Good luck taking guns away we people with guns will fight till we win or die sorry he is not thinking about people who hunt fight the war or protect innocent people cuz with out being able to carry guns the mad men will start going on a rampage and killing spree and worse como might get killed by a gun he can’t and wont stop us from bearing arms

        2. Not going to be an election due to currently declared martial law under patriot act active since a couple years ago. Civil war will postpone the next 2 elections. Haven’t you been paying attention? Even Trump says he is not leaving office for many many years. Will be in the longest of any President. Why else do you think the Patriot Act was activated by Trump.

      2. For the son of Pope Mario the Pious, gun owners are the class enemy in a pure Marxist sense. The class enemy must be exterminated in order to build a better world. It’s that simple, as Stalin taught the world in his murderous way. Cuomo is just as evil, in intentions if not capabilities.

        That said, it’s true that many if not most gun owners possess more than one firearm. Some in spades. But the Left has often quoted a very flawed Harvard study that claims “three percent of gun owners possess seventy percent of all guns in the U.S.” A major flaw in the study is reliance on telephonic polling; who in his right mind is going to honestly answer an anonymous pollster demanding to know “Do you own guns and if so, how many?”

        But the study and its adherents have two intents: isolate a supposed minority as dangerous gun nuts, and inform politicians that they can be disregarded when pushing confiscation, which is their goal.

        However, I think we gun rights supporters can view the situation in NY more calmly (CT,MA, CA, NJ, & WA too) when we look at the rate of non-compliance in all these states for registration of “assault weapons”: it is massive and averages 85-90 percent. The governors of these states huffed & puffed and threatened to send out their flying monkeys to bang on doors, but that hasn’t happened.

        My regards to Upstaters who have to live under the Cuomo regime; I have driven through Upstate in fall and it is beautiful to see.

        And by the way, why is it that everyone in public view named Cuomo is an arrogant world class jerk?

      3. @Greg…Shush !!! You will give Bloomberg and his Mother Jumpers new ideas. Soon they will be crafting new laws to make criminals out of such persons.

    18. Governor Cuomo can set the example by dismissing all his ARMED body guards. Once he does that, then maybe I’ll listen to him. Actually, no I won’t, he’s a tryannical whack job.
