Senate Democrats announce gun control bills

The stupid, it burns:

“… Sen. Kevin Parker, D-Brooklyn, said incidents of gun violence in Brooklyn are a daily occurrence, “and something that is not getting better over time.” “This conference supports the Second Amendment,” he said. “We understand that there is a long tradition of hunting and shooting … but we certainly understand the morale obligation that we have as a Democratic conference to address the needs of safety.” …”

The fact that “gun violence” is a daily occurrence in Brooklyn in spite of Governor Cuomo’s so-called SAFE Act would be an indication to a normal, rational person that such policies do not work.

Of course, Parker will never admit that any more than he would acknowledge the irony of him talking about violence.

Here is the list of bills they are pushing:

  • S-3355, Enacts the “Children’s Weapon Accident Prevention Act”. Companion A-1990.
  • S-4363, Creates the “New York State Firearms Violence Research Institute.” Companion A-2977.
