Loved it when he says, " We have not saved any lives tonight. Except for one. The political life of a governor who wants to be president"

Good to see some evidence that every elected official in the state of New York is not a moron or engaged in open insurrection against the Constitution of the United States. Sorry to see he's in a minority.

I cannot see the vid while at word so Im not sure who this is about..

Watching the debacle in NY I was certainly impressed with Goodell and Tedisco. Its a shame that what they said fell on deaf ears.

43 voted in favor of this bill and 18 said NO.

Remember those numbers and who they were the next time you vote in this state!

Those who voted NO were mostly republican but there were some democrats who went against their party lines, most of them were from up state districts.

Maybe our members - in and out of New York - should write and tell him that. Being buried in supportive messages won't hurt his feelings.

What, a reasonable person in office, in new york? :eek:

You folks in that state should vote for him for governor.

OP, thanks for the link.

I am not sure how Sen Greg Ball sides the rest of the time but that was a great and short speech. He should run for governor when Cuomo inevitably looses. What makes his speech interesting is Putnam and Westchester counties have typically been for most gun control measures.

NY Politics are rather interesting. On a local level and as soon as you get away from the metro cities even some of the democrats are on our side. Likewise, most of the republicans who are from the metro cities along with almost all of the democrats support these useless issues.

NY is far from being alone where ignorance of the issues are concerned and our politicians are no different. Just last night I saw clips from the Jimmy Kimmel show where he was asking folks on the street what they thought about the Inauguration festivities and the speech from Obama. Keep in mind, it has not happened yet! He was easily able to find plenty of actual voters who claimed they watched and had excellent opinions of that which has not yet happened.

An informed voter is usually a good thing but with the media bias we have these days there is no such thing as voters being informed. They lead us like sheep into the darkness where danger lurks. We are a product of our environment and the environment is highly tainted by false reporting.

Westchester yes, Putnam not so much - look at the difference in issuance of pistol permits...

I wonder why no one has mentioned these claims?

Why is it the progressive liberals that steal guns then go and kill movie goers and children in school have never been a conservative NRA member???


Ft Hood Shooter - Registered Democrat- Muslim

Columbine Shooters - Too young to vote- both families were registered democrats and progressive liberals

Virginia Tech Shooter- Wrote hate mail to Pres Bush and to his staff. Registered Democrat

Colorado Theater Shooter - Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, occupy wall street participant, progressive liberal

Connecticut School Shooter- Registered Democrat, hated Christians,

Common thread: all of these shooters were progressive liberal democrats.

Interesting...isn't it?

He won't be president with his gun-grabbing record.

Did you come to argue? If so then feel free to prove it wrong if you have better info on the subject. Just don't bother quoting from Snopes as I won't believe a word they say.

Anyone know if these claims are valid? Looks like the NY SAFE Act started as much more sinister before getting "cleaned up" in the Senate. I am unable to verify this with a second source.

Regarding the various comments made by supporters and detractors of this bill, did anyone catch a handful of the supporters referring to assault weapons as "weapons of mass destruction" during the debate and/or voting?

Because, if I'm understanding them correctly, I assume they would also then feel that Bush was right and there were in fact WMD's in Iraq?

There were WMD's in Iraq. Remember that week long caravan of Iraqi trucks going to Syria during the final days of the war, and the playing cards of Chemical Ali, and the Black Widow? Now flash forward to Syria's Assad threatening to use WMD's on his own people...? Come on folks, do the math.

Quite true. Go to www.scopeny.org or the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association website.

From what I see on this blog and others; coming to your state legislature soon.

Stay vigilant!

Why would anyone question this? NY and Cuomo jumped out ahead of the feds with these restrictions to make him look like the next POTUS. From what I have seen in my own research almost all of the reps from metro areas of this state fell right into lock step with the Dems and the Gov. Only reps from rural districts fought against much tougher restrictions.

Someone said it above, "Lets get to work"!

No, I did not come to argue. I simply asked you to cite the source of your 'facts'. Since you stated that those 'facts' came from a friend who got them from a blog, you look very foolish for not fact checking those claims before stating them as fact. If you cant provide verifiable evidence of your claims, you look very misguided for stating them as fact.

What are verifiable facts is that the Connecticut school shooter had no political affiliations and was never registered to vote.

OK, I changed my words to "Claims" just for you.
It is likely near impossible to fact check exactly what, if any political affiliations some of these shooters had. I have heard that Lanza's father was a big wig with GE but don't know that to be a fact either and I have no idea what politics his mother or father had.

I got a reply back from Mr. Ball. It was short and sweet. Says, "Thank you [for your comments]. Wish I could have voted no twice."

I think that's the perfect reply.

I believe Cuomo lost any chnce to be President with his bush league, back door anti-gun politics. He probably believes it paved the way for him but he opened a can of whoopazz across the entire nation that will seal his fate. It's scary that a man so out-of-control is/was that close to the White House.
