Governor's "Confiscation" Remark Catches Dicker's Ear - NYPOST.com

    Governor Cuomo's suggestion in a radio interview that confiscation of so called assault rifles is one option in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, but experts say there are over a million such weapons in the hands of New Yorkers and taking when would require compensation costing over a billion dollars.
     Meanwhile sales of the rifles have been brisk as gun fanciers fear a looming crack down from a Governor preparing to enter a national stage.
     The Governor's comment certainly lends credence to the notion that some seek to disarm America and see tragedies like Sandy Hook as the means.
      A New York legislature now aligned with the Governor might well embrace such a proposal.

Mayor I know you are beating a drum you think you understand, but the sales speak for themselves and the stats say otherwise.

I have to back off on these cowardly idiotic libruls a little. I forgot that they are just as eager to disarm our nuclear programs, our military and our allies in the rest of the world.

Punks like Cuomo are simply so accustomed to having other people look out for them, that the idea of having to take care of themselves is foreign to them.

The money is a big laugh. Have we not all seen the bumper stickers? My cold dead hands. That would be the issue, I would think.

The American love of 'Guns' is the problem, and that obsessive love of 'Guns' makes it impossible for Americans to show any objectivity about guns; the love of life and each other is something we all need to cherish more than any gun.

N.Y already HAS an assault weapon law on the books that never was repealed when the federal law was. There are numerous rifle and handgun configurations that can be sold throughout the country that had be pocessed in N.Y now. Atr the time it was supposed to end all crime in N.Y.

Anyone who thinks passing a law, ANY law, restricting the rights of our citizens is going to do anything in reducing criminal activity is a special kind of stupid.

Gov. Cuomo is right the NRA ‘Assaults’ Americans Sensibilities:

All ‘NRA VP Wayne LaPierre’ wants Americans to have for Christmas is a new shiny ‘Assault Rifle’ with large magazine clips. Like many of his fellow NRA members buying an Assault Rifle’ is the new litmus test for being a real American. What else matters to a great many NRA members? Nothing else. They want an Assault Rifle period. It seems that too many owners of Assault weapons with large magazine clips aren’t really as concerned about our children’s safety in schools, as they are about being ready to make War on the United States government. We talk about ‘Movies and Video Games’ violent content and we should, because too often it suggests violence is the answer and not the problem. This idea that we have to be ready to fight our government at a moments’ notice with an Assault Rifle’ and plenty of large magazine ammunition clips, has been nurtured by ‘Right Wing’ radio in America and it should be looked at closely by every American.

The idea’s fostered by Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and too many others like them, has come close to openly advocating for insurrection in America. This wind bag crew who have never put a thing on the line to defend America, have devoted the better part of their talk radio lives attempting to undermine Americans trust in their own government. They’ve made it popular to call your President a ‘Communist’ and foreign born, with a specific agenda to destroy ‘Capitalism’ in America; while guys like Rush earn 10’s o f millions of dollars a year spotting this nonsense. To card carrying Wayne LaPierre supporters, however, this is the reality that a ‘God’ faring gun totting, Assault Rifle’ owner is willing to die for, keeping Uncle Sam’ off my doorstep even if I have to die, or put a bullet in the head of any government representatives who show up on my property; and yes I totally believe they are coming any day now.

The American tragedy in the making is not the horror visited to us at Newton, Ct.., it’s the one that will be visited by millions with ‘Assault’ weapons owners acting alone, or in Para military units nationwide, who are hell bent on making war against their supposedly ‘Communist’ President Barrack Obama. And yes it looks like this is what it has come to. And Why Gov. Cuomo is right to suggest that we need to take the Assault Rifle hardware out of the hands of a populace ready to wage war on our government as soon as Glenn or Rush tell them it’s time to lay down their lives to kill Liberals, Socialists, Gays, etc. or any other group they deem as not loving guns as much as they do. We have a gun war about to break out in America, and ‘Right Wing’ talk radio hosts nuts are the ones responsible for getting us to the brink of the gun violence ‘Nirvana’ that Glenn and Rush want to make a reality in America. It is time as Gov. Cuomo suggests to buy back ‘Assault’ rifles in NYS, even if it costs a Billion’ dollars. An unfortunately that GOP led Senate he backed to stay in power is not behind this gun control program. If they’re not it’s time to get a Democratic Majority in the NYS Senate that is for a gun control program, that buys back Assault weapons at market cost.

Handgun confiscation would be no problem though since each leagally possessed handgun in NYS is already on a statewide registry.

And MCM...Just my opinion, but it is not a love of guns but a love of freedom that causes Americans to cherish the possession of firearms.

Mikey the reason we need guns is that we do love life. Only we love some lives more than others. While you and your kind love Willie Horton as much as you love those 6 year olds that were masicred by an insane killer. And you also love killers and criminals and the criminally insane, more than you love 8 month old fetuses. But then again the millions of lives lost to coat hangers is worth if for the freedom to choose.

MCM you frame this as a love for guns. I understand a couple hundred years ago you would be wearing red and being doing the bidding of the King, but it's your freedom to say it with the First Amendment with mine to own one in the second.

? said...

Understand most gun owners (like me) would do what they were told. If the state said bring your handguns and what they considered dangerous rifles to a drop point and turn them in. Most would do as told. BUT....

How do you handle the ones that would not? Don't you see the next civil war coming? I do.

That's the bright type of comment that has us all worried about 'Gun Nut' types like yourself. MCM

No gun owner would give up their weapon. Why would they do so? Pretty scary comment from a potential Presidential candidate. Is the gestapo going to come search our homes sounds like the book Fahrenheit 451.

ANON 10:20AM

On Christmas day I wish you well. Anyone who equates the American government with a Hitlerian dictatorship has lost all sense of proportion and really needs to do a reality check. My thesis is in the Yale Holocaust library, and covered the life of Jesuit Priest named John Smotzer. A Jesuit Priest who stared down an SS Arrowhead detachment that wanted to come into his Church to take out 300 Jews who he sheltered there. The only thing that kept him from getting killed that day is the Russians were closing in and the SS Arrowhead decided they didn't have the time to kill everyone.
You see there are people who put it on the line to defend freedom against things like Nazi tyranny. And then there are people who imagine their own government is going to put them in a gas chamber, even though they live in a free society with a 2nd Amendment and a Constitution. Again Merry Christmas ANON and try to get some perspective, because you're way over the top with a paranoid view of reality. Gun Control means just that -Gun Control-it doesn't mean you won't have the right to own a gun; just not a semi or automatic weapon if all goes right with 'Gun' control legislation in America.

It should be pointed out that Hitler was legally elected and used crisis situations to convince the German people to give him more power. The German people gave up their firearms in the belief that it would it would prevent violence and in so doing enslaved themselves to a socialist dictator.

Gun Control is just that MMM a steady hand, and squeeze kapow, another clean target kill. We really dont live in a FREE Society do we? It's all about "Special Interest" be it the NRA, This special group, you would probably have all the gun legislation you needed if it wasnt for the NRA and the Pols who take their money, nice story on the Jews, heartwarming. MMM look in Todays Fred Dicker about Gun Buy Back there all Hunting rifles, yet the story reeks of Assault rifles, The average citizen doesnt own one(cops do?) so good luck with the gun control now the State Senate remains in good hands..........Sorry I have no written works to brag about just a idea that were better off with guns than no guns.

MCM not a big Thomas Jefferson fan huh? "When the people fear the government there is tyranny. When the government fears the people that is liberty!" -Thomas Jefferson

I fear people like MMM, Does he work?? Did he ever work? Is he a plant from the Libs placed on the board?? Whatever the case we need a conservative type for balance.

Fred Dicker exposed Mario Cuomo's falsified statistics and ended that attempt to ban certain firearms. It was devastating because the data was 100% false.
