Governor Andrew Cuomo clearly doesn’t “get” the whole point of the 2nd Amendment. His recent, screeching tirade against any hunter/gun owner having more than a few bullets made that clear. As does the new legislation he just signed – it is a preposterous assault on the fundamental CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms. Alert Americans should be alarmed. Gary DeMar elaborates below …
I listened to Andrew Cuomo speak on the gun laws the state of New York just passed. He sounded like a Pentecostal preacher. The cheers from the crowd reminded me of a revival meeting. For liberals, more laws are their salvation. They believe that more laws make us safer and more secure. Law books are their Bible. The building that houses the legislature is their church.
What is often lost on liberals is that the intent of the heart and the machinations of the mind are where evil is hatched. It wasn’t a gun that brought down the twin towers and killed more than 3000 people in New York City. It was a few men with box cutters who took over two jet airplanes and flew them into the Twin Towers. Everything these men did was illegal.
Bad people don’t care about laws. They laugh at laws because they know it makes their work easier.
Every person involved in these mass shootings was breaking numerous laws. Breaking one or two more won’t matter to someone hell-bent on death and destruction. In many of these cases, the perpetrators end up killing themselves. The legal sanctions are never applied. You can’t prosecute a corpse.
The legislators who voted to restrict guns in additional ways cheered at their good fortune. The problem is, not one of these new laws will restrict a person who wants to kill one, two, ten, or 20 people.The majority of Americans knows this. Consider these headlines:
