The Blaze -- Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that all options, including confiscation and “mandatory sales to the state,” would be on the table next month when the New York State Legislature debates new gun control measures. The comments were specifically aimed at what might happen should stricter rules be imposed on “assault” weapons and high-capacity magazines.
The governor said he plans on proposing a package of gun legislation in his State of the State address on Jan. 9.
“There’s a big difference of opinion on these issues,” Gov. Cuomo said today during a radio interview with Albany’s WGDJ-AM.
Mr. Cuomo explained that because gun control hasn’t been a recent topic of discussion in the capital, he has chosen to reach out to lawmakers to see where they stand on the issue before he submits his final proposal.
Blog author's comments - I do not think Democrat Governor Cuomo will be able to confiscate guns and use "mandatory sales to the state." He and Obama are using the tragic shooting at the Newtown, Connecticut school to gather support for their anti-gun agenda.
This is not to say that Barack Obama will not push hard for a ban on 'assault rifles', high capacity magazines and the closing of what is referred to as gun show loop holes. The liberals will continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights.
Anyone who was paying attention had to know that Obama would focus on gun control if he won a a second term in office. New York's liberal Gov. Cuomo is following along with his anti-gun agenda.
Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association suggested the creation of the National School Shield Program which would put armed security officers in every school. He also said "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." I agree with Mr. LaPierre.
