I can not understand why this fool won’t just step up and demand all firearms be confiscated. If you want to hunt – which is what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo thinks the 2nd Amendment is about – we should be licensed and required to pick up a one-shot rifle at the local police department armory, and have a state guide with you at all times.
You think I’m kidding? Cuomo is not, and he needs to go away. If you voted for this clown, I’m embarrassed for you. Is there a recall system in place in New York? From CBS with my emphasis in bold.
[Cuomo] admitted he’s a gun owner himself and said he doesn’t want to stop hunters and others from owning weapons, but Cuomo tried to shame the Legislature into action with a passionate speech on gun violence, CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported.
“I say to you forget the extremists. It’s simple — no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer and too many people have died already,” Cuomo said.
Again, nobody can figure out what an assault rifle is. Thousands and thousands of hunters use sport rifles to hunt every day, but nobody in the US uses fully-automatic assault rifles for hunting. Of course, those weapons are rarely if ever used in a crime. If you hear the press mention an automatic rifle or pistol was used in a crime, you can be 99 percent certain they are lying to you.
Hey Cuomo – The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with hunting.
Trust me, politicians like Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bloomberg know they are lying to you. They think you are stupid. They are speaking to the low-information voter who lives their life making decisions after listening to a 10 second soundbite or “reviewing” a pretty 200-pixel square graphic with “important” information on it when it shows up on their Facebook wall. I’m not kidding … that’s how they get their information!
The gun control crowd and politicians like Cuomo and Bloomberg are purposefully confusing the waters when it comes to the definition of an “assault” weapon. They are playing on your fears. They are lying to you. The press is letting them get away with it.
Disgusting. Does Cuomo – or even you – have the guts to read my post on rifles and magazines and how appropriate they are for home defense as well as hunting? Do you have time to read it? It will take five minutes. Will you share that post on your Facebook wall?

Here’s the problem — the slope IS SLIPPERY.
Once they ban 30 rounds magazines, they will only be satisfied until a crime is committed with a 10 or even a 5 round magazine, then they’ll want to ban them too.
Soon, thereafter, someone like Cuomo will stand up with a straight face and tell us why we don’t need anything that holds more than one shot.
