Complex Lies and Simple Truths – Covid and Crime

NSSF King Cuomo Mirror
Gov. Cuomo’s hypocracy is on full display with comments condemning alleged Trump tyranny.

U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- Life is complex. Sure, in the time of Covid you can tell everyone to stay home and starve, but they won’t do it. They won’t do it even though you’re emperor Cuomo of New York. Even with all your wealth and political influence, you can’t make people lay down and obey. They act for themselves, and soon they think for themselves.

Ordinary people are frightened by what they see around them. Of course, you can order gun stores to close by saying they are non-essential businesses, but criminals already have their guns. The thugs can always get more guns off the street.

Crime goes on, and crime goes up.

You let convicted criminals out of jail due to Covid. Crime increases. Of course, Governor Cuomo and the media act surprised. You let criminals back on the street due to bail reform, and crime goes up some more. The murder rate increases and you blame the police. Murders go unsolved, and crime goes up.

You stop the application process for citizens getting their concealed carry permits. You say it is for public health. You say you can’t allow person-to-person contact due to Covid. And again, the rate of street crime jumps. Carjackings nearly double.

The simple truth is that our politicians have a lot of power.

It is clear that the media can sell us a lot of spin disguised as news. It is equally clear that the lies only sound plausible for so long.

Eventually, the unsolved problems grow and the truth emerges for all to see. We ask ourselves the questions the media ignored. We learn that even the most powerful politicians can’t keep us safe. Again, the simple truth breaks through the woven veil of lies. Now, both the politicians and their media supporters look dishonest with their long strings of broken promises.

For us, that is a mixed blessing. The politicians and the media can make excuses, but we can’t. We can’t pretend that politicians will fix the problems of public violence now that we know how dishonest they are. Now, our safety is up to us.

That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Half of the adults in the US have a firearm. About one-in-ten adults have their carry permits or live in a state where they don’t need a permit to carry a concealed firearm in public. These people are just like us.

There are tens-of-millions of honest gun owners who picked up the responsibility to protect themselves and their families. These ordinary people carry that responsibility with them every day. You walk past them in the store and as you walk down the street.

Crime is increasing. Are you depending on someone else to keep you safe until the police arrive? Concealed carry is simple, but it isn’t easy. Tens of millions of us decided we didn’t have time to wait.

The excuse used to be “It’s because the computer’s down” now the excuse is “It’s because of COVID 19”.

All you have to do is listen to this guy speak for a few minutes then you can understand why the state of New York has so many problems.
I don’t feel sorry for them they keep electing people who don’t have the best interest of the citizens in mind.
Kick him out.

I question if the people did elect them. I question the Pa Gov also. If you look at 2018 midterms it was the same districts with some uncanny numbers. I tried then to bring awareness to Wagner but he done conceded. He did make a small stink about it but it went no where. That election was a vote on whether to keep property taxes. You know sane people just love paying taxes for children they don’t have.

How come this clown has not been charged with manslaughter as he is responsible for 100s of deaths due to his decision to put covid infected people in nursing homes ? Time for charges and prosecution and jail for the idiot !

He knew ,or should have known sending those people into that situation ws a death sentence.
Being “in charge” also means you take responsibility.

I hear his voice and see his mannerisms as well as tone and I think mafia mob boss. Nothing more, nothing less. faux news lost me every time they aired anything this ass had to say. Now it’s to the point that I watch two hours a day and not all the time. I knew he was a lair that could not be trusted just by how he treated people and evaluating his illogical logic.

Andy is not actually “tough enough” to be a “boss”. He is another’s puppet; just like his father (who to his credit said “I love my son but do not understand him”.).

Violent crime, while outrageously high in some neighborhoods, had been declining for quite some time when viewed as a rate for the entire US. That did not serve to justify the totalitarian agenda.

They were able to solve so many of their problems using COVID-19 as an excuse. Now, crime is on the rise and they (the totalitarians) couldn’t be happier. “It’s a crisis – we have to DO something!”

Because too many “whore themselves” for a “government paycheck”.
