Thoughts for Liberal New Yorkers

Don’t you think you might have bigger problem than guns and people putting more than 7 rounds in a magazine when your legislature can apparently draft legislation in smoke filled rooms, vote on the final product with 30 minutes notice, and get everything all wrapped up before the public has had a chance to sip their morning coffee? I mean, I get we’re not a democracy, but don’t you think there’s something vaguely wrong about lawmakers passing a bill before the public even has an idea what’s in it because the Governor says it’s an “emergency?” I would think this is something the left and the right can agree on.

And what does it say about their confidence in gun control that they feel they need to accomplish everything quickly, before the public has a chance to mobilize, and, I don’t know, maybe carefully consider the bill? Hear all sides? This wasn’t a conversation on guns. They don’t want a conversation, and that has been abundantly clear since this whole farce began.

    In New York, they call it “Monday”

    I read in an AP article, lying a bit about it being “sealed” (the Assembly still had to vote), saying:

    Cuomo said he wanted quick action to avoid a run on assault weapons and ammunition. He estimates there are already about 1 million assault weapons in New York state.

    Republican Sen. Greg Ball called that political opportunism in a rare criticism of the popular and powerful governor seen by his supporters as a possible candidate for president in 2016.

    “We haven’t saved any lives tonight, except one: the political life of a governor who wants to be president,” said Ball who represents part of the Hudson Valley. “We have taken an entire category of firearms that are currently legal that are in the homes of law-abiding, tax paying citizens. … We are now turning those law-abiding citizens into criminals.”

    Is Ball the only state politican to speak out against this?

    They continued with the minor detail that Remington has a two centuries old factory in central New York that employees 1,000 workers….

    • Felix says:

      I kinda doubt he’d have much chance at President unless the Republicans choose Cain. He’d be guaranteed to bring out the apathetic Republicans.

  4. Clay says:

    I keep remembering this bit that the daily show did where they went and asked the people at the 2012 DNC in Charlotte, NC which group of people they would exclude from the democratic party. Everyone there seemed to agree that gun owners and hunters were the type of people that they want nothing to do with, to which the correspondent replied sarcastically “yeah sure who needs those 146 million people in your party anyway”. On a serious note though I really do think most people on the left hate us with a passion.

  5. Cargosquid says:

    Heh, be funny if Ball ran against Cuomo in the Presidential primary.

  6. Rob Crawford says:

    I get we’re not a democracy

    It’s odd the number of times a lefty says we are, though. And how much they ignore the reality that the majority do NOT support gun control.
