Andy: More Casinos, Fewer Guns are Priorities for New Yorkers

     Telling New Yorkers "we have work to do" Governor Cuomo made three new casinos, a higher minimum wage and more expansive gun control as highlights of his agenda for the year ahead.
     A longer school year was also on the Governor's mind.
      The casino proposal was linked to the carrot of local tax relief and stands as a symbol of the Governor's commitment to gambling as an alternative form of taxation.

Gov. Cuomo made a great speech today and it he laid down a strong 'Gun Contro' program that will be the toughest in the nation. A good start!

“The Mayor who wasn’t in Albany, NY today”

Governor Cuomo gave a great speech today that the Mayor's of most NYS Cities attended, but Watertown Mayor Jeff Graham who's supposed to be “ The Mayor that’s there” wasn't in attendance. On a serious note Gov. Cuomo made a very convincing case for the raising of the 'Minimum wage to 8.75 hourly. Gov. Cuomo's commitment to NYS having the toughest 'Gun Control' program in the Country was simply put, the highlight of his speech to me. His commitment to woman rang through NYS and the ten point program to bring about equality for woman in NYS is everything I wanted to hear; including repeating three times that a woman has a right to make decisions about her own body when it comes to abortion. Great 'speech emphasizing we are 'Progressives' in NYS, by Gov. Cuomo and "Let's all give 'Gun Control' a chance. We all want a safer NYS and America and the Governor's program is a good start in the right direction.

I think they gave gun control a chance in Chicago and it didn't work out so well. Why do you think it will have an impact in NY?

I guess jobs and taxes are not to high on his agenda.

look i want gun control BUT dayum Cuomo sounded like a lunatic , shouting and loosing control . This guy is a loose cannon in the video clips of the speech Scary , and seems almost unstable.

Gun Control yes , but by much cooler heads than what i saw today . All i can say is he was over the line , WAY over the line on emotional control .

Really Mike! What if one person just doesn't turn in his machine gun the law already said he has no right to have? Who tells him he has to go by the letter of the law, when he has already been breaking it? Then you have the guy who has several over round clips. BUT, no one knows he has them. Is he going to turn them in? My bet is what the Andy is really doing is setting up a real nice black market for these clips and rifles and doesn't even know it. Mike, you and people like you will make criminals rich. I know you mean well. Still you really have no clue.

BUT MIKE!

You stuck your head out of the hole. Answer the questions. I agree. We will not be any safer and people will loose their jobs. You pushed for it on the radio. You pushed for it on your blog. So yes you are responsible too. You stuck your two cents in, give us an answer back. Do you feel good that people will be out of a job and there will still be guns in the hands of kids in NYC? What did you efforts gain?

I think all it did was make you feel like a big-shot.

ANON 9:35

All we are saying is give 'Gun Control' a chance. MCM

Does MCM work???????????

9:29 You are exactly right. If Cuomo screamed and hollared like that in front of the wrong people, HE would be banned from buying a gun, appropriately. I believe he thinks this is his only chance to get out of NYS. He's just not that into the blonde babe. Or the other way around.

Mikey and Dannie already have their gun control. It works, but only with people who respect laws. What they advocate for now is simply foolishness that placates ignorance and fear. But it does fit their perverted relationship to party line loyalty. Both are unable to look at any issue beyond Republican/Democrat perspective. Both do immeasurable damage to this country. I feel particulary sorry for Dannie. Imagine, spending most of your adult life fighting to defend a Constitution you never believed in in the first place. It must have been terrible. This gun hysteria will take away freedoms as never before. And those who said Obama was no threat to the Constitution now have some soul searching to do. I imagine they will do what Dan and Mike do every day. Explain it away using partisan logic.
