Former NRA President: Reciprocity Will Be Law by End of 2018

Reciprocity bill S.446 is currently stalled at 39 co-sponsors, none Democrat, with no action taken since committee introduction last year.

Cuomo on who New Yorkers are

Govenor Cuomo swore in George Latimer as Westchester County Executive yesterday and brought up gun control:

“… Cuomo also used the opportunity Sunday to take a swipe at Republican lawmakers in Washington and warn that New York is in the midst of dark times.  “They’re making statements about who we are as a people, who we are as a society, what our character consists of, how we treat one another. They’re trying to take decades of process and civil rights and human rights and roll it all back … They want to roll back our gun safety laws. All across the board,” Cuomo said …”

Pot, meet Kettle:

“… The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are …”

Has the GOP learned anything?

The Republicans have scored a significant win with their tax bill, passing it without any Democrat votes.

The question is now, has Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership learned anything from this and will they try to move other agenda items through the Senate including reciprocity?

S.446 still sits at 39 co-sponsors.

New depths of stupidity

Gun control proponents aren’t known for using facts to back up their positions, however we’re plumbing new depths of stupidity with this argument against reciprocity:

“… Randi Bregman of Vera House in Syracuse says ultimately this kind of legislation would weaken New York’s gun control laws. For victims of domestic violence that could be deadly … Bregman says it’s not uncommon for victims of domestic violence to flee across state lines to somewhere they think is more safe. “They may have friends or family they may come to, and they may end up in New York State. And I think making the protections we have in New York to make concealed carry looser, could potentially put someone in harms way,” Bregman said …”

OMG.  Is this idiot actually suggesting that people come to New York because they think our gun control laws make it safer?  I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything remotely like that before.  NYAGV doesn’t even do that.  It’s like saying people are moving here because they like paying high taxes.

Why are gun control activists so violent?
