Cuomo Close To Announcing Sweeping New Gun Control Laws


YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — 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.

Highly placed sources told CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer that Cuomo is negotiating with Assembly and Senate leaders for a package of gun control laws that would be a dramatic response to the gun violence besetting the nation, including the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

“It’s a very divisive topic,” Cuomo said on Wednesday. “There’s a lot of energy on both sides. Some people are vehemently against’ some people think we’re out of our minds for not passing it.”

Sources told Kramer the governor and lawmakers are negotiating furiously in the hope that Cuomo can announce a deal during his speech Thursday.

Sources said the package is expected to include:

* New restrictions on assault weapons

* Stiffer penalties for using a gun to commit a crime

* New limits on the number of bullets in a gun magazine

Petition Demands Obama Turn In All His Guns


It is clear, what the Founders intended, by writing the 2nd Amendment the way they did. The Supreme Court, itself, has upheld that interpretation. It seems quite clear to me, that the Founders were simply putting down on paper, what they understood was a GOD-GIVEN RIGHT, of the individual to protect himself, and family, primarily from government tyranny. So, the way I see it - the ONLY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT(S), that the government can "take" away from you, are those that YOU FAIL TO EXERCISE! The government really has NOTHING to do, whatsoever, with how the individual chooses to exercise his/her GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS!

"Democide, or death by government, has killed hundreds of millions of people just in the last century alone, making it the number one cause of unnatural death in the 20th century."  (Estimates are between 250 and 292 million deaths
were caused by government).
