New York: Cuomo Declares Gun Violence State of Emergency

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Remember when Gov. Andrew Cuomo told everyone the SAFE Act was going to make New York streets safer?  Well that didn’t work out too well and neither will his latest attempt to deflect attention from years of failed criminal justice policies.  Today, the Governor announced he is declaring a gun violence state of emergency.  How can there be a gun violence state of emergency in New York when the state has, arguably, the harshest gun laws in the country?

The answer is simple:  Gov. Cuomo and the Democrat-controlled Legislature have not only failed to fix the problem, they have made it worse!  Their catch-and-release “bail reform” and defunding of law enforcement has resulted in New York crime hitting historic levels, and somehow he can blame—with a straight face—gun manufacturers.  The Governor has spent his entire tenure coddling criminals and harassing law-abiding New York gun owners.  It should come as no surprise that crime has spiraled out of control.

Gov. Cuomo indicated he is signing S.7196, by Sen. Zellnor Myrie (D).  That bill would make it easier to sue gun manufacturers, despite federal protections adopted years ago under the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.  Instead of taking responsibility for failed legislation coming out of Albany, the scapegoating continues.

NRA has spent decades fighting these bills in Albany.  Gov. Cuomo has been in office for over a decade, and he has had every opportunity to get it right.  He has failed miserably, and today was nothing more than a doubling-down on more of the same failed politics.

A friend of mine asked me:
If I had one wish what would it be?
I said: I wish that all liberals would turn to dust instantly.
She said: what would you do first after that?
I said: I would morn the loss of my mom and dad.
She said: Wow! That’s Dark.
I said: Now get me a cold beer. Make sure it’s opened by the time you get back. (Just kidding about that last part) I don’t care if it’s opened or not.

Typical Democrats. Create a problem by neglecting to follow Laws, and then go to extremes that won’t resolve any problems. That’s been the DemoCommiecrat Modus Operandi for 200+ years.

Dear NRA, No one cares what you say. You are a toothless lion. Get your house in order and MAYBE you will become relevant again.

Cuomo is a joke and his failed policies have killed more people than the lie they call ” gun violence ” . The people of New York need to sue his ass off for all the nursing home deaths and hold the scumbag accountable for all those nursing home deaths due to his negligence. He is a complete idiot and what happened to the investigation into the little scumbag ? It got swept under the carpet because the Democrats are all corrupt POS in New York !

So this governor killed 15,000+ seniors last year by forcing COVID patients into NY nursing homes and he’s all of a sudden the poster boy for doing the right thing?

The right way to fight this insanity – get every single manufacturer of guns, gun parts, and ammunition to stop selling anything to the state of NY. So if the police can’t get guns and ammo to arm their members who protect these slimeball liberals, maybe they will stop the crusade.

The real state of emergency there in New York is that the State is being run as a criminal enterprise by criminals. These scumbags should be removed from the planet as soon as possible.
