Weekly Wrap-Up

In his bid to wow the left by punishing legal gun owners, Andrew Cuomo has made a laughingstock of New York State by turning cops into potential criminals. 

In case you missed it, here are stories from the New York Post and ABC7 in New York City (which was linked to a national audience by The Drudge Report).

As the Post notes, “Nearly every cop in the state may be carrying an illegal number of bullets in their service weapons under the rush-job gun reform pushed through by Gov. Cuomo and the Legislature.”

As I told the Post, police officers are in jeopardy right now unless they short themselves by three bullets.  It’s mind-boggling.  What’s also unbelievable is the Cuomo team’s response to all this. 

One Cuomo spokesman told the Post, “No police officer possessing ammunition clips with more than seven bullets is in violation of the law or guilty of any crime, period.”

But according to ABC7, “A spokesman for the governor's office called Eyewitness News to say, ‘We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation.’”

But if no police officer is in violation of the current law, what’s to work out?  Why is an exemption needed, if what the Cuomo spin team says is true?  

Keep in mind, Cuomo described this as “the best bill” designed to restrict the Second Amendment.  This is truly a gang that can’t shoot straight.

"This law is going to make this state a safer state," Cuomo said. Do you agree? Or do you think this bill is a politically motivated rush job that benefits no one but Andrew Cuomo? Vote today in our new Weekly Poll.

Even liberal news outlets in New York think Gov. Cuomo has gone too far with his latest gun grab.

Not that Washington’s doing much better.  The Obama Administration’s gun control edict includes taxpayer funding for anti-gun propaganda – or, “research” as the President prefers to call it.  

Here’s research from John Lott and The Heritage Foundation that Obama most likely will NOT bother to read.

In other news this week...

Gun restrictions are not the only regulations bearing down on Americans.  Regulating us to death is perhaps the one thing the Obama Administration is actually good at.

Think the New York City school bus strike doesn’t affect you?  Think again, says John Podhoretz.  

Have a great weekend!
