New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, pervert, has submitted his two-week notice. Here are his most infamous anti-gun quotes:
“If you can beat COVID, you can beat gun violence. We’re in a new epidemic, and it’s gun violence, and it’s a matter of life and death also.”
“We’re losing young people, we’re losing them tragically and we’re losing them needlessly,” Cuomo said, noting that young New Yorkers — especially those of Black and Hispanic descent — are statistically far more likely to be shot than white residents.
“We know where they’re coming from — they’re coming from the south — and we’re going to declare a border war to stop them. Illegal immigration is not killing Americans. Illegal guns are killing Americans.”
“Qualified retired New York or federal law enforcement officers are exempt from prosecution for violating large capacity magazine restrictions for guns that were issued or purchased in the course of official duties and owned at the time of retirement, or comparable replacements. Other guns not owned in the course of official duties prior to retirement are not exempt.”
“In the area of public safety, gun violence has been on a rampage as we know painfully. We must stop the madness, my friends. And in one word it is just enough. It has been enough. We need a gun policy in this state that is reasonable, that is balanced, that is measured. We respect hunters and sportsmen. This is not taking away people’s guns. I own a Remington shotgun. I’ve hunted, I’ve shot. That’s not what this is about. It is about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles. That’s what this is about. We have a seven point agenda.”
“Some guns are so dangerous and some ammunition devices so lethal that we simply cannot afford to continue selling them in our state. With military-style features that are unneeded and unwanted for hunting and sporting purposes, assault weapons are this kind of weapon. And large capacity magazines are this kind of ammunition device.”
“Our state has had a ban on assault weapons since 2000, but it is so riddled with loopholes that it has become virtually unenforceable. We do not ban large capacity magazines manufactured prior to the enactment of the federal assault weapons ban in 1994–magazines with the capacity to hold upwards of 30, 50, or even 100 rounds. It is virtually impossible for law enforcement to determine whether a large capacity magazine was manufactured prior to 1994, and, as a result, we effectively have no ban.”
