Schumer speaks on H.R. 822

Chuck Schumer finally address H.R. 822 in this NY1/YNN story:

“… There are 242 co-sponsors to the bill,” [Congressman Jerrold Nadler] said. “I hope we can stop it in the Senate.”  That will likely happen, according to New York’s senior senator, Charles Schumer.  “It’s come up in the past and the Senate’s defeated it,” he said.  Schumer also said the bill would allow gun owners into the state without permission from law enforcement officials, which he said was not wanted …”

That isn’t what happened.  When is came up last year it had 58 Yea votes, just short of the 60 needed to prevent Schumer’s promised filibuster.  The ’10 elections should have added 6 pro-gun votes meaning there should be enough support now to end debate on the bill and bring it to the floor for a vote.  Schumer isn’t saying this.

  1. Markie Marxist sez: “My commie compadre, Comrade Senator Schumer is correct! How can New York be a good communist state if it doesn’t oppress people by taking away their rights? We can’t allow New Yorkers to have the rights of Americans! That American thing is all about freedom and liberty, and uncommunist stuff like that! It’s just not common communist sense!”

  2. I THINK THEY (CHUCKIE & FRIENDS – NBC,CBS,ABC,CNN,ETC) PROTESTIST TOO LITTLE. I SMELL A RAT HERE.
    ONCE THE SENATE ‘TAGS’ THEIR LITTLE TWEEKS – LIKE A FEDERAL REGISTRY, PERHAPS – THEN – WELL YOU GET THE IDEA.
    HELL, JUST MOVE OUT OF NY TO A STATE THAT IS STILL FREE. TEXAS AND FLORIDA COME TO MIND. LEAVE NY TO CHUCKIE AND HIS SOCK PUPPET GILLABRAND.
