Well, Andrew Cuomo and his legislature in New York will be the first to DO SOMETHING! on gun control after the Sandy hook shooting. When I say “do something” I mean “do something stupid and useless”. A link to NBC sent to us by Old Trooper explains just how eager Liberals are to do anything to appear to voters as if they have good intentions;
The tentative agreement would further restrict New York’s ban on assault weapons and limit the size of magazines to seven bullets, rather than the current 10. Other elements, pushed by Republicans, would refine a mental health law to make it easier to confine people determined to be a threat to themselves or others.
Senate Republicans also have included a further crackdown on illegal gun trafficking into New York, the people said. Most New York City gun crimes involve weapons illegally brought into the state, state and city officials say.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the proposal had not been discussed among rank and file legislators. They say the tentative deal was struck over the weekend and will be debated behind closed doors Monday in the Senate and Assembly.
Yup, three rounds will make a huge difference – it wouldn’t have stopped William Spengler, the Webster, NY shooter who shot four firefighters, killing two. Four is less than seven. The only people who will benefit are the magazine manufacturers who will have to pound out new magazines for the folks who bought their guns when the limit was 10. And the funny part is that this is the best that gun grabbers could get. And they worked it out over a weekend. A whole weekend!
How do you “further restrict” a ban? Albany’s proctologists must be working overtime helping the legislators who spent all weekend pulling things out of their ass.
