New bill introduction today A-8149, Provides for the posting of firearm signage in certain areas:
“… IN AREAS IN WHICH THE RATE OF GUN VIOLENCE IS ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE, THE DIVISION SHALL NOTIFY THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY SERVING SUCH AREA TO POST SIGNAGE IN THE FORM PRESCRIBED BY THE DIVISION …”
I have read so much stupid legislative shit over the years, but this is right near the top. What exactly is this supposed to accomplish?
During his presser, he declared a “Disaster Emergency” on “gun violence”:
“A surge in gun violence across cities across New York led Gov. Andrew Cuomo to declare a state of emergency Tuesday. The move, which Cuomo called a disaster emergency, means New York can bolster its law enforcement presence in cities where the shootings are on the rise and put additional state resources to crime-ridden areas, he said. Additionally, he said a new gun-violence prevention office will be established within the state Health Department, require police agencies to better report where the shootings are happening and establish a new council on gun violence reduction …”
I predict in the very near future the state will file a lawsuit against one or more gun makers based upon this nuisance theory in the bill. It will go all the way to SCOTUS before the law will be overturned based upon the PLCCA.

Joe Biden is the perfect spokesman for the gun control movement: A doddering old fool regurgitating the same tired talking points about the same failed policies:
“President Biden’s topic was one of utmost importance Wednesday — crime and gun violence. But you wouldn’t know it from the way he spoke. He slurred his words. He called the ATF “the AFT.” At one point, he talked about the history of the Second Amendment and “the blood of patriots” before concluding that someone would need nuclear weapons to take down the government. If you weren’t confused, you were horrified. Biden was obviously tired, speaking in barely a monotone. He couldn’t pronounce “cognitive.” … Yet a protective circle has formed around Biden, preventing them from stating the obvious: Joe Biden, 78, looked out of it …”
BIDEN: "Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government.”

Not one gun control advocate is going to be motivated by this.
I have said many times before and I will say again, 2A activists need to be involved in Democrat party politics especially in the primaries where turnout is low as that is the only way to knock many incumbents out of office.
The latest examples from Albany:
“… In 2013, when incumbent Albany Mayor Sheehan was first running for the job against Councilman Corey Ellis, more than 10,000 Democrats cast votes in the race. At the moment, just over 6,000 votes were cast in her primary eight years later with Faust, according to the unofficial results. More than 200 Democratic voters — more than 3% of the vote — chose a write-in candidate. Turnout can be difficult to gauge given voters in New York may retain the muscle memory of casting primary ballots in September — this is the first off-cycle primary to be held in June. But given the overwhelming Democratic enrollment in most cities, both upstate and in New York, a handful of voters relative to the overall population can determine the future course of a community …”
“Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, who ran for a third term while under indictment in a campaign finance case and under fire for her handling of a police killing, has been defeated in the Democratic primary by City Councilman Malik Evans …”
“Hours after the polls closed Tuesday evening in New York City’s primary elections, incomplete results for the District 5 City Council race on the Upper East Side showed Julie Menin holding a 10-point lead. By 11:30 p.m., Menin, the former census director and city commissioner, led the early results with 33.9 percent of the vote, trailed by Tricia Shimamura at 23.7 percent, Rebecca Lamorte at 11.7 percent and Kim Moscaritolo at 11.2 percent …”
Moscaritolo is the former Legislative Committee Chair for New Yorkers Against Gun Violence.
