It’s been several days since CoBIS was scrapped and there hasn’t been so much as a peep out of any of the antigun groups over it. While CoBIS was an undeniable policy disaster, what is important is that a Democrat Governor, not known for being our friend, of a deeply red state publicly admitted a gun control law was a failure and repealed it:
“… “We are ending a program that doesn’t solve crimes or make our streets safe,’’ said Cuomo spokesman Josh Vlasto …”
This is not an insignificant admission. It’s a major hit to the antigunners agenda, especially to their latest scheme, microstamping. It is going to have ramifications across the country.

I think you mean deeply blue state there.
Just out of curiosity, do you think they’re silent because Cuomo is a Dem? I’m guess that if he was a Repub, there would be all kinds of howling…..
Hello CoBIS my old friend.
I’ve come to giggle at your end.
Opps. Yes, blue.
Partly. Assembly Democrats booted Schimel from the floor because they did not want to listen to her go off about microstamping during budget debates. The issue isn’t as popular as many would think because there is nothing to be gained politically (money/votes) by pushing the issue.
They’re silent because they’re focusing all their efforts on micro-stupid. Of course, you already know that. Won’t be dead until it’s voted dead.
Don’t know if anyone has pointed this out yet but “ballistic fingerprinting” is worth 5 big Brady rating points. This drops NY from 62 points to 57, which drops Brady stalwart NY from 4th place to 5th behind Conneticut with 58.
No wonder they’re keeping quiet.
