Cuomo takes over

Andrew Cuomo has been sworn in as Governor.  Marvelous.

He has a proven track record as an antigunner going back to his time at HUD.  He didn’t make a big deal about guns during his campaign and I still believe Eric Schneiderman is going to be pointman on the issue.  We should know soon enough what the Governor is going to do.  Three things to look out for this month are:

  1. What he says during the State of the State address this Wednesday.
  2. Program bills, especially the state budget.
  3. Appointments, especially for the DEC.

With Schniederman, I know what he’s going to do: be a royal pain the in the ass and not just to New York gun owners.  I expect he’ll waste no time announcing all sorts of antigun initiatives at the state and national level.
