Signs, signs, everywhere are signs

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?

Lawsuit against gun manufactures coming soon

Governor Cuomo held a press conference/media event today to sign the gun manufacturers/dealers liability bill A-6762B/S-7196 into law.

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.

Biden is the perfect spokesman for gun control

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 …”

Not one gun control advocate is going to be motivated by this.

Fudd speaks on banning lead hunting ammo

A Fudd speaks:

“… Both houses of the state legislature have introduced bills that would ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting, whether it be limited to state land, or for the taking of wildlife across the board … Current bills on the table in Albany would prohibit the use of lead ammunition in the taking of wildlife on state-owned land and on land contributing surface water to the New York city water supply, to an outright prohibition on the use of lead ammo in the taking of wildlife in the state, whether on private of public land … The general consensus among shooters seems to be that if the issue is cost alone, then you probably will reach for lead. If you start weighing the likelihood of lead being banned at some point, then you can start considering a number of alternatives, some more, some less costly, but all usually more expensive than lead. The good news is that performance should not be an issue …”

When this passes (probably this year), he and a lot of other Fudds are going to be really unhappy.

Rocah begins to push Moms’ agenda

Back in January I said Mimi Rocah was going to use the D.A.’s office to push to Moms agenda.

She’s wasted no time starting with that:

“The Westchester District Attorney’s Office is partnering with Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures to protect people from gun violence, to address the issue of gun violence in Westchester County, DA Miriam E. Rocah announced today … The DA’s Office will partner with all local schools to provide free resources for families to learn more about secure storage of firearms. Additionally, Moms Demand Action will provide free virtual training about their secure firearm storage program, Be SMART …”

Pure propaganda designed to scare kids about guns.
