Among the most aggressive authoritarians to exploit Sandy Hook is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:
A deal to give New York one of the toughest gun control laws in the nation is being negotiated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who, sources said Tuesday, is hoping to announce the plan Wednesday during his State of the State speech in Albany.
Cuomo hopes to jump-start the 2013 legislative session with a big deal that could dramatically alter gun control laws across the state.
Prepare for gun violence in NYC to explode the way repressive gun laws have caused it to do in Chicago. But now for the truly scary part:
It would be quite a coup for Cuomo, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, to show progress on gun control while Washington dithers.
Cuomo’s previous national claim to fame was helping lay the groundwork for the 2008 financial crisis when he was HUD Secretary by forcing banks to make race-based loans that everyone knew would not be paid back. He called this what it was — federally imposed “Affirmative Action” for loans:
Andrew Cuomo is a socialist. It is no coincidence that those most adamantly opposed to the economic freedom that produces prosperity are also those most eager to deny us the right to defend ourselves from tyrannical government.
Unlike some of their supporters, Democrat pols do not mean well. They are evil.
