“Gun Control is a gift for humanity”

All we are saying is give 'Gun Control' a chance to save lives in NYS and America. Heartfelt thanks to the NYS Assembly and Senate body for backing Governor Cuomo's sincere desire to stop the madness now, by passing this legislation tomorrow.

Heartfelt thanks to all who participated in making it possible to be a little bit safer from the insane idea that Assault weapons and high capacity clips are necessary for civilians to own; either to protect themselves or to hunt with in NYS.

How many criminals did the senate just create? About 90% of the pistol owners in the state plus tens of thousands of semi auto 22 owners.

This is nothing more than a feel-good law that makes our politicians feel like they "did something".

Honest, law-abiding gun owners have never been the problem.

Criminals are criminals for a reason. They think they are above the law. This latest move in Albany will change nothing as far as the criminal element is concerned.

This is not brain surgery, only common sense.

Thank you very much for at least sticking up for your constituents and their constitutional rights! Again, way to go Patty!

I will assume she praised that part of the law that will make it more of a crime to kill an adult male firefighter than it is to to kill a six year old child. AKA..."Mark's law".

Yes pandering Patty RINO Ritchie...that should be praised.

I think it is time we considered succession from NYS.

18 senators who actually take their oath to aphold the Constitution seriously. Only 18 senators who still believe in the principals of personal freedom the Founding Fathers gave us. We now have a President who rules by executive order rather than through Congress. Anybody out there who still thinks the Republic is not dead and gone? Does anyone except me actually CARE anymore?

Again Ritchie protects the very well to do or the prison bunch.. She voted against this common sense bill even though the vast majority of her constituants felt the time was now to get some changes and put some teeth in the law. Again her voting is done for a very small minority of her constituants.
Again I have to wonder why when shopping at Walmart in Ogdensburg I hear the firing of auto weapons coming from the direction of the COs training range.. Guns are not allowed in the prisions under any circumstances.. In guard towers at max prisions but there is none of these in Ogdensburg.. See hacks brining inmates to the hospital daily but no auto weapons leaving one to believe hacks own these type weapons an practice for their ego.. I know paintball tourneys are held locally all the time facing off the Sheriffs hotdogs vs the prision hacks usually a someones farm...

O let's get some drums and sing an old hippy song with Mike.

I just don't understand the clip size issue. If you can only buy clips that hold 7 rounds instead of 10, I will buy 2. Now I have 14 rounds. The guns are nit the issue. Crazy people are. Identifying unqualified humanoids is proper gun control.

It should also be pointed out that Senators Little and Marchione also voted against the Bill. It seems that our congressional district was solidly against it. Marchione covers the southern most portion of Congressional District 21 and is circulating a petition to have the Bill overturned. Go to her website to sign it. Interesting three woman representing parts of our congressional district voted against this against this Bill. Lets see where Owens stands on this issue.

It seems that the 18 Senators opposed to the Bill represent the vast majority of land area within the state. A secessionist movement would need the approval of the state legislature and congress to be successful. It would be worth the effort, if only to embarrass those wish to force this legislation upon us.

Surprise! Surprise! Patti Ritchie lines up with Grover Norquist again. Her "constituents" make up about 12% of the population. Time for her to go back to selling license plates.

I can only hope the MCM's of the World (hope theres just the one) can sleep more easily tonight now that crime will be on the downside, That being said I get to renew my CCW permit which Ive had since 1979, to whci the state will charge to do this, hence another money grab..........But we've made the MCM's of the State happy, that's all that matters...So from this day forward there will be no more shootings, or for that matter any crime because we've passed this bill into the most unfair and misguided vision there is......MCM hope youre happy.

Grover Norquest and gun control. Can't you get Koch Brothers in there somehow too?

The purpose of this law is to punish the "makers". The same purpose as taxing the "makers".

4:39 I think it's good that we see and hear Mikey at every opportunity. If more were aware of him and his type, we wouldn't be saddled with the criminal we have in the White House OR Thug Andy, or closer to home wannabee. Mike is an example of what happens to a nation when all we do is eat and grow dumber. We need to shape up, physically and mentally. He's a reminder of what we've become. In his way, he's serving his country very well.

Bush and Cheney have left that that office. Please, try and keep up.

Look at the $$$ we can save by eliminating police departments now that there will be no gun toting criminals. Cops can now spend more time on their primary job - traffic tickets.

The NRA bunch is UP IN ARMS over gun control!!! Tactics such as changing the subject or calling names don't seem to be working for them anymore. Especially when reminders keep coming out of the twenty 6 and 7 year olds who were BUTCHERED by an assault weapon.

There are two many parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. in this country who KNOW it is wrong to have weapons UNNECESSIARILY available that can be used to butcher innocent little children.

The NRA has met it's match, and it is about time.

They left the white house and were replaced by a new set of criminals just from the other party.

So not much difference.

The new guy in the white house managed 4 Trillion Dollar in Dept in 4 years , when Bush needed for that number 8 years.

He voted for the extended Patriot Act II und signed NDAA on 12.31.11 in Law, Guantomao Bay is still open, the Militaery is still in Afghanistan, getting ready for Iran, Syria or even Mali.
Not to forget "Fast and Furious"

5:04, don't confuse 8:40 with facts. He can't hear when he and his family are bending over. Most of his type are busy doing that on a continuous basis. All they know is government told them to do something, and they quickly bend at the waist. It must be humiliating to teach your family, who may be looking up to him, to do the same thing. But at least they won't be "butchered". His wife might be a little sore, from all the bending I mean.
