“… This year, we’ll continue finding new ways to target high-crime areas, illegal guns, domestic batterers. as well as the repeat low-level offenders who threaten our quality of life. We’ve come so far in creating the safest big City in the nation, and we aren’t going to let anything or anyone stop our progress …”
“… We’ll start by conducting a detailed assessment of all city, state, and federal funding for youth services and we’ll work to connect the people and organizations that are tackling these issues so we can better coordinate our efforts. After all, the New Yorkers in groups like Million Moms Against Gun Violence want the same thing as the cop on the beat and the social worker and by bringing these groups and other groups closer together, we believe we can make a real difference …”
Scott Brown won the Massachusetts Senate seat and in doing so humiliates Obama, Democrats and the Brady Campaign who endorsed opponent Martha Coakley.
Oh, yes, it’s a Sunshine Day!
Still more media coverage from last week:
- Greg Ball press release, “Ball Welcomes Sportsmen to Albany, Calls on Legislature to Defend Second Amendment“
- Oneida County Courier, “Townsend Joins LaPierre and Friends for Sportsmen Event“
- Buffalo News, “Sportsmen rally the pro-gun troops“:
“… More than 2,000 of those concerned hunters, shooters, trappers, gun owners and collectors, and other outdoors-rights people gathered in the Legislative Office Building on Tuesday to view exhibits and hear leading gun-rights advocates address issues during a Sportsmen’s and Outdoor Recreation Legislative Awareness Albany Rally …”
- Post-Journal, “Giglio Co-Hosts Outdoor Recreation Legistlative Awareness Day“
- Legislative Gazette, “Assembly Republicans’ sportsmen awareness day draws New York hunters and gun rights advocates“
“… Pataki, the former two-term [typo: three-term] governor of the Empire State, would beat incumbent Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) by 13 points if the election were held today, and maintains a larger, 22-point lead over former Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.), who’s mulling a run for the New York Senate seat …”
My question is, who are these 55% of the people with warm feelings for Pataki? He was terrible. He wrecked the economy and the state Republican party and drove thousands of people and countless businesses out of the state. Who out there is actually saying they’re craving more of G. Elmer?
“President Barack Obama received a failing grade from the a gun control advocacy group on Monday …”
Does it look as if he cares what they think?
“… “This year they ran away from the issue, and actually signed two repeals of good gun legislation.” Those changes, which would allow guns in national parks and on Amtrak trains, were attached as amendments to larger pieces of legislation the president generally supported …”
Nope. Is that likely to change anytime soon?
“… [Paul] Helmke said the Obama administration hadn’t yet reached out to the gun control group, and that he doesn’t expect the White House to do so anytime soon …”
So, the biggest socialist/statist in American history wants nothing to with their anti-freedom agenda? That says a lot about how unpopular gun control really is.
