S-7133A Reported

Squishy Republicans in the Senate Judiciary Committee voted today to advance S-7133A.  The bill has been Reported and could be voted on by the full Senate at any time.

Assembly companion A-8976B passed back in March.

Gun Industry:

Panel Discussion of Gun Laws, School Safety and Mental Health with Congressman John Faso

Congressman John Faso will hold a “Panel Discussion of Gun Laws, School Safety and Mental Health” on June 1, 6:00pm at Hudson High School in Hudson.

The event is free and you can register here.

It is reasonable to assume Democrats and antigun advocates will try and embarrass Faso over his (lukewarm) support for 2A.

He chose poorly

The Journal News reports:

Marc Molinaro has picked a running mate for his bid to unseat Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Julie Killian, the former Rye deputy mayor and a two-time candidate for state Senate in Westchester County …”

Killian is a antigun RINO with a track record of failure at the ballot box.  She’s an exceptionally bad choice for a statewide ticket.

Language of the Left

Dana Balter is running in CD-24 against incumbent John Katko.

This news nugget caught my eye:

This is a prefect example of how the antigun Left uses language to advance their agenda. The statement “We know they work” is how they try to shut off debate by making it seem that the issue has already been discussed and the opposition discredited. They are counting on the 2A side not to call them out when they openly lie.

Top tip for debating gun control advocates: Do not ever accept the premises of any argument they put forward and do not be afraid to come right out and say so. Go right ahead and interrupt them. They are not expecting it. Do not back down when they become upset when you call their B.S. If they won’t recant their statement end the discussion.

Sunday’s Newsbits:





Vote for the Homo, Not the Cuomo

In response to the Governor’s “suggestion” banks evaluate doing business with the NRA, the Association filed a lawsuit in WNY challenging the directive:

“The National Rifle Association on Friday sued New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s financial regulator for engaging in what it said was a “blacklisting campaign” aimed at swaying banks and insurers to stop doing business with the gun advocacy group …”

Whether or not the lawsuit has any merits, neither Governor Cuomo nor the legislature takes things like this seriously.  They go on all the time.  Politicians are not personally liable for defending the suit and such actions have little to no impact on re-election campaigns.

If the NRA wants to hurt Cuomo back, they ought to do a Vote for the Homo, Not the Cuomo GOTV effort for the Democrat primary.  It does not matter that Cynthia Nixon is not pro-gun. The fire-mission should be defined as knocking out the incumbent and nothing more.
