A Cuomo administration source is flatly denying the governor’s claim that his new anti-gun SAFE Act was carefully drafted, saying the governor himself wasn’t even aware of some provisions when it was hastily enacted into law.

 

“The governor thought the limit on the size of [gun] magazines would only apply to assault-style rifles, not to handguns,’’ said the source.

 

“That’s why there’s the big problem now with handguns, among other things in the statute.’’

 

The legal sale of virtually all semiautomatic handguns will soon be impossible because Cuomo’s law limits the size of bullet-holding magazines to seven shots, virtually none of which are manufactured for sale.

 

“Much of what’s in the law was drafted by people connected to Mayor Bloomberg and the Brady Center, not by the governor’s staff,” the source said. “That’s why there are so many problems with it.’’

Cuomo Blames Bloomberg, Brady Campaign for SAFE Act

 

Posted on March 26, 2013 by Nick Leghorn

 

In an effort to attempt to rescue his hopes for re-election and a possible future Presidential campaign, Governor Cuomo is now trying to distance himself from the SAFE Act that he was so instrumental in passing. According to a nypost.com article, Cuomo is trying to shift blame for the shoddily worded law to Mayor Bloomberg and the Brady Campaign, saying that they drafted most of the legislation and he didn’t read it. Just like the rest of the NY Legislature didn’t read it before it was hastily crammed down the throats of New Yorkers . . .

 

 

“Much of what’s in the law was drafted by people connected to Mayor Bloomberg and the Brady Center, not by the governor’s staff,” the (Cuomo administration) source said. “That’s why there are so many problems with it.’’

 

 

Before the massive backlash against the bill began, Cuomo was trying to use the SAFE Act to bolster his Democratic credentials. It looked like he was trying to position himself to be a frontrunner for the 2016 nomination, building himself up as the new Democratic poster boy. But instead of the public rallying to his side, his popularity numbers have taken a nosedive and the largest protests ever recorded in Albany formed against his prized legislation.

 

Seeing the writing on the wall, it’s now apparently time to distance himself from this steaming pile.

 

Which raises the question: did Cuomo and the Assembly take the bill’s language directly from the Brady Campaign? And then ram it through under a “message of necessity” without letting anyone read it? [ED: don't exaggerate: they had twenty-minutes to read the bill.]

 

If a law drafted by the NRA was enacted, the papers would be crying bloody murder. Instead, since one of their approved special interest groups apparently helped draft the legislation, not a single peep has been heard. Hooray for the state-controlled media.

Weewee, seen the emerging details on Reid's Senate bill yet?  Bill of sale for every firearm you own or they are verboten.  Amazing.

Will NY'ers send him packing in the next election?

 





Nope, they'll line up to gladly vote for him again.

“the most comprehensive package in the nation.”

 

“I am proud to be a New Yorker because New York is doing something. We are fighting back.”

 

Cuomo applauded lawmakers — particularly Republicans — for standing up to “extremists”

 

Cuomo told the Daily News he hopes the “comprehensive” set of laws can be an example for other states and federal government.

 

“I think people tend to look to New York and a New York action resonates,” he said. “To the extent this provokes more debate and more action, all the better.”

"No one needs 10 bullets."

 

"Ban high capacity magazines."

 

He never NEVER limited these statements to rifles, and doing so is JUST AS ******* DUMB as doing it for handguns.

 

He knew what was in it. He just grossly miscalculated how it would play among NYers, much more so how it would play out in swing states.

 

Creepy, disingenuous ****. Just like his Pappy.
