Cuomo’s Ban On Armed Teachers Will Make Schools Less Safe

BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- By placing his signature on legislation that prevents local New York State school districts from authorizing armed volunteer staff, including teachers, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has made schools more vulnerable to attack and signaled that fact to every deranged person looking for a headline, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

Under the new law, schools will not be allowed to authorize anyone who is not a security guard, school resource officer or police officer to have a firearm on school grounds.

Cuomo argued that this measure will help keep “unwanted or illegal” guns off school campuses. It comes right after he signed other anti-rights legislation extending the background check waiting period, banning so-called “undetectable guns” and expanding so-called “safe storage” requirements.

“Governor Cuomo’s answer to failed restrictive gun laws is more new gun laws that prevent people from being able to protect themselves, their families and, in this case, the children under their instruction and care, from violent criminals and crazy people,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Cuomo’s adherence to, and perpetuation of, the safety myth of so-called ‘gun-free school zones’ borders on delusion.

“All he has done by signing these gun control bills is to make it harder for honest citizens to be legally armed, while criminals won’t be the least bit deterred,” he continued. “The real danger to people in New York is his appointment of his cronies to parole boards that let violent offenders out of prison early.”

Gottlieb said the governor, now in his third term, is enacting policies that are driving good citizens out of the Empire State.

“He thinks that allowing armed school staff will result in accidents or acts of violence, but that has not happened anywhere such programs are in place,” Gottlieb observed. “He thinks disarming law-abiding citizens will make them safer. Because of Cuomo-backed anti-gun rights policies in New York, people are moving in droves to less gun restrictive states like South Carolina, Florida, and Texas where they can have the means to self-defense.”

    Any shooting related to a politician or bureaucrats failure to protect its citizens shall be considered an accessory to the crime. This includes any location where self defense by any means is prohibited or outlawed and to include school administrators, city councils or event coordinators, It’s time to hold all the contributors partly  responsible for the carnage at the highest level. We all know that guns are not the problem, it’s the criminal. The representatives that we elected or appointed are never held to the fire and somehow they get off with absolutely no accountability. All that these self-serving tyrants… Read more »

    I agree! Every legal gun owner in NY should join a class action suit against Gov. Como and sue him for violating their Constitutional and Civil Rights to protect themselves and their loved ones. It’s time to legally fight back against these self proclaimed demigod tyrants who have this sick desire to play mom and dad to their constituents.

    These people who propose “gun control” Are either badly misinformed or just plain evil. A gun is a tool that can be used for good or bad. Same with a knife, a vehicle, a hammer etc. The gun makes no decisions on it’s own, it’s the person that holds it that is in question. By disarming the citizenry the gun control proponents enable crime and evil while, simultaneously, hamstringing the innocent, condemning them to suffering and death. Therefore, they are just as guilty and culpable as the murderers, robbers, rapists, drug dealers, terrorists etc. The have the blood of the… Read more »

    I agree. It goes against my religion to disarm for my assailants and comply to my own demise. Congress shall make no law with respect to religion commanding me to do so. I am not subservient to their Beast system of Islam.

    Human life means absolutely nothing to the NY commies, especially children. If you can’t kill them in the womb then you have a chance right after they are born, then you have another chance while they are in school. You would think they definitely have something against children. On the other hand, illegals are ok because they will grow up to be a democrat vote.

    According to what I’m reading they are international Rothchild Vatican henchmen spread across and embedded in many states and throughout the gov with direct ties to Ep’sing of which there is criminal indictment against with over 1 million pages of documented evidence against. The agenda is far from exclusive to NY and once Americans begin waking up they will learn this is a global pedophile, drug running, human trafficking network that We The People have been supporting with our own blood for thousands of years. Popes satanic alien New World Order of global governance under Vatican rule of the10 kingdoms… Read more »

    What a stupid thing to reiterate when it has been proven time and again that posted “Gun Free Zone signs” and current restrictions already prohibiting firearms don’t keep “unwanted or illegal” guns off school campuses.

    “Cuomo argued that this measure will help keep “unwanted or illegal” guns off school campuses.”

    The more children are murdered in NGZs the more politicians and media get attention. It is a win-win for both at expense of our childrens’ lives.

    Although the east coast states are trying to stamp out our God given, and Constitutionally enshrined civil Rights, the benevolent master State of New Jersey, now, allows its slaves to commit suicide! See, it is not all bad news out there.

    With the history of gun free zones being shooting galleries, Cuomo has inflicted the death penalty on your children. Hope you New Yorkers are happy with that.

    Every politician, left or right, who has backed the use of “No Gun Zones” should be indicted as an accessory to murder. These same politicians also contribute to discrimination of lawful firearms owners from attending any function in NGZ’s where as they whole heartedly, by their actions of making an area a NGZ, legitimize killers going in and doing their dirty work. Then they lay the blame on the law abiding citizens by going after their guns. Perhaps those who stand by NGZ’s think they would be discriminating against the killers by not allowing NGZ’s? Political correctness is a deadly… Read more »

    The Epstein pedo club of globalist authoritarian transhuman Pyramid dwellers who seek to steal America and loot it for it’s wealth to create their Satanic Vatican space alien world government that is raging across social media platforms and cranking up speed daily will stop at nothing to take Americas guns to leave us victims to their destruction and is why they are all going to GITMO to be executed to restore Americas heritage of a Constitutional Republic.
