"Democrats hailed Mr. Cuomo's aggressive gun-control push..."

"... citing it as an example of a muscular brand of politics that the governor has made his signature in two years in office. He has bent a Legislature partially controlled by Republicans to his will on other liberal issues, such as legalizing gay marriage and solidifying higher tax rates for the wealthy."

Hail! Governor Cuomo, O muscular leader, you of the aggressive push! Yea, even as Superman to a bar of steel, you have bent a Legislature!

Muscular politics. Makes me want to demonstrate Godwin's Law.

And, New York lost nearly 2.9 million residents to other states between 1990 and 2010 – the biggest domestic migration outflow, relative to population, of any state during that 20-year period.

Keep clapping, idiots.

The Andrew Cuomo who as Clinton's HUD Secretary put in place the disasterous that lead to the housing and bank disaster.

One good thing about this idiot and the other one in the White House is they are the high water mark of liberalism. By 2020 when the pendulum has swung in the other direction they will be lucky if getting spat on in the streets is all that happens to them.

Jay said...

If gun control is so great, how come we have no gun control success stories?

Or is all those blacks dying in Chicago - while the white Jew mayor does nothing - considered a success?

Renee said...

And connecting everything to abortion in other legislation, no exemptions.

Palladian said...

I love when dynastic politicians in fiscally moribund states get muscular.

Maguro said...

Cuomo 2016? Or is he too white and too male?

Obama voted "present" on IL State Senate bill (SB0759) which "Provides for adult
criminal prosecution of a minor at least 15 years of age who is
charged with aggravated battery with a firearm committed in a school,
on the real property comprising a school, within 1,000 feet of the
real property comprising a school, at a school-related activity, or
on or within 1,000 feet of a conveyance owned, leased, or contracted
by a school or school district to transport students to or from
school or a school-related activity.
"

Vote recording.

MadisonMan said...

The only life that may have been helped by this bill is the political life of Andrew Cuomo on the national stage

Great quote.

How nice that NY will be safer now that gun control is upped!

Palladian said...

...muscular brand of politics...

The word "muscle" comes from the Latin musculus, which is the diminutive of mus, the Latin word for mouse.

little mousy brand of politics...

Jay said...

Remember, when Democrats institute silly, ineffective, draconian laws it is muscular.

When a Republican signs legislation they "shoot from the hip" and are shoot 'em up cowboys!

Marshal said...

From a WAPO article...

In addition to outlawing a broader array of military-style weapons, the measure restricts ammunition magazines to seven rounds, down from the current 10,

So we already see how disingenuous those whining about limiting magazines to ten rounds are.

AprilApple said...

Come, let us worship and hail the progressive superhero.

The media insist. Anti 2nd amendment gun ignorance be damned.

Bob Boyd said...

The word Strongman comes to mind. When did that kind of thing become admirable?

Mitchell the Bat said...

No new set of laws should be described as "sweeping" unless it repeals other laws or regulates actual, you know, sweeping.

Jay said...

It is kind of hard to take the President, who as a state senator voted against cracking down on school shootings and the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, seriously on "saving children's lives"

But of course we apparently are no longer a serious nation...

bpm4532 said...

A law in response to Sandy Hook that would not stop the sort of tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook.

Yep, that's muscular, in a metro sexual sort of way.

vet66 said...

Seems to me Cuomo has set up a scenario where law abiding citizens leave New York thus concentrating the number of criminals to a declining number of potential victims. Ratio of good folks to criminals and all. Like adding more wolves to a flock of sheep.

Mogget said...

I heard that this legislation is so poorly done that it doesn't exempt the cops from the mag capacity limits. If so, what a bunch of maroons.

Leland said...

I just want someone to take Cuomo out bear hunting with a musket from the revolutionary war.

Bryan C said...

Credere, Obbedire, Combattere!

Quayle said...

It's really too bad for him that the country will be in absolute chaos, burried by the effects of leftist policies, when he'll be ready to run for Pres.

He'll never get out of the blocks.

Maguro said...

Obama couldn't vote for the Illinois bill because it was clearly aimed at stopping black and Latino teenage gangbangers from bringing their pieces to school.

Gun control is only a liberal virtue if it's percieved as an attack on redneck gun nuts.

ErnieG said...

"But seven round magazines are virtually unobtainable."

Gov. Cuomo: [steepling hands and speaking in voice of Mr. Burns] "Eeeexcelent".

chrisnavin.com said...

Bloomberg's gun control success story is all the stop and frisk stuff. Keeps the minorities where they should be and only the good, articulate, middle-class folks get into the right neighborhoods.

Then maybe cut a deal where you put some Hispanics in some green towers.

White people who have like a 75% or above white majority LOVE diversity. This new progressive coalition is GREAT.

AprilApple said...

It's amazing how democrats feel that stomping on our constitutional liberties will actually make us safe.
Bad people do bad things. No silly pen to paper signature or freedom squishing law will ever change that.

Rick Caird said...

Cuomo has just provided another reason for people from New York State to move to Texas. Texas has already said they will welcome them open arms.

Gun control legislation will not get a single person to move to New York. It will only provide another reason to leave.

bagoh20 said...

That would be just great if Democrats weren't so confused about who the enemy are.

chrisnavin.com said...

Come on all you conservatives, Southerners, racists, suburban unwashed masses, libertarians, white male patriarchs, fundamentalists.....various and sundry skeptics, free thinkers and doubters.

We've got a big quilt for you. It's made out of 100% multiculturalism and diversity. You can fit all of your religions under here. Come on.

-Invest in your community
-Your racism will disappear
-Men and women are equal (what are sexuality and marriage anyways?)
-We'll take away the bad things
-Environmentally sustainable

Downsides:

-Higher taxes
-Fewer jobs
-Political corruption
-Loss of liberty
-Economically unsustainable
-May exacerbate existing dividing lines in your society
-May lead to unnecessary war

Andy has to do a lot more to make people forget how he muffed handling Sandy.

Darrell said...

Mass murders have been occurring for thousands of years. They usually took the form of an insane person starting a fire in a building occupied by a lot of people. Additionally, they would often use some type of accelerant to spread the fire more quickly and make escape less likely. To that latter end, doors were often blocked or chained to increase death tolls.

Imagine if the doors on the school had been chained after Adam Lanza ran down the one central hallway spilling out gasoline from a five-gallon container. Would we be mourning 456 students? Would the "choke-point" and limited access/egress strategies make that new death toll (456) more or less likely.

traditionalguy said...

I always liked the story of the war elephants of Hannibal going into Spain and crossing the Pyrenees and then the Alps and descending on Rome from the north.

Cuomo has a lot of bending left to do to defeat the Clintons. And Cuomo is no Hannibal.

Myths are made fresh everyday in the propaganda age.

Calypso Facto said...

See the respect that bi-partisanship gets you, Republicans?

Darrell said...

Remember when the Democrats were touting Rod Blagojevich as a potential Presidential candidate? I do. He had the cred--stopping the shipment of napalm to contracted destruction facilities (costing taxpayers extra $Millions) and negotiating with
Slobodan Milošević (with Jesse Jackson.)

By the time the complete picture of Blago was forming, you could swear they were saying that he was a Republican. I would bet that some in the media actually made that "slip." Regardless, you never heard the word Democrat associated with his name.

EMD said...

Mass murderers will just have to re-load more often.

DADvocate said...

Did you notice how none of Obama's resoluitons addressed the favorite killing device of long time friend and would be mass murderer, Bill Ayers? Bombs.

Chip Ahoy said...

That's odd. I hadn't thought of vaginas as muscular. I see a big pink fiippy floppy vagina. Hang on.

[ is vagina a muscle? ]

I'll be damned. I. did. not. know. that. But it makes sense. I'm going straight to reddit and announce a TIL.

Leland said...

Yes, DADvocate, I've noticed. Remember, we have to save he lives of children, but hold Jose Padilla for too long with no evidence, except for all the bomb making equipment, and you're running a police state.

gerry said...

Ah, "solidifying higher tax rates for the wealthy."

You can hear them leaving New Yawk for lower tax states.

Baron Zemo said...

Well he was a "real man" and such a muscular tough guy he wouldn't have lost his wife to a polo playing pussy.

Overcompensating much douchenozzle?

EMD said...

Are there a lot of urban inner city mass school shootings?

It doesn't seem like it.

Maybe because you never know who might be packing ...

Baron Zemo said...

You know who Andrew Cuomo is?

Fredo Corleone. Just sayn'

Blacks are dying in Chicago and the Jewish mayor does nothing...!

I think your wrong. As I recall he told them to keep it in the alley! "Take your stuff away to the alley" was the direct quote!

That too is an "aggressive gun control push"!

Renee said...

@chip ahoy


The uterus is a muscle too. How did you think babies were born, that they just fell out?

The muscle can get weak, and actually flop out, it's called a prolapse uterus. TMI I know, but since you just learned the vagina was a muscle.

Chip S. said...

Maybe he could change his name to something like Man of Steel.

Darrell said...

All Cuomo's sisters were given a name that started with an "M." All his daughters were too.

Muscle starts with an "M."

Cuomo married a Kennedy.

bpm4532 said...

Maybe Dick Cheney should invite Amdrew Cuomo out hunting.

Darrell said...

Cuomo can shoot himself in his own foot, thank you very much. Why do you think he wants to ban guns? If only he could have done it before he shot off his mouth.

R.A. Crankbait said...

"Muscular"? Well, I guess they won't need to hire Noami Wolfe as a consultant to help Andrew find his alpha male.

Btw, sphincters are also muscles.

Alex said...

Congrats, the Democrats are in even firmer control of a declining(formerly great) state of New York. What a shame. Liberalism is a disease.

Revenant said...

Bad news for New York.

Good news for the rest of the country, though. Cuomo killed his chances for winning the Presidency in 2016.

Marshal said...

I think this is good news. We need an example of leftist policy results. Michigan has been providing that for a decade or two, but now they're showing signs of sanity. NY, California, and Illinios are competing to replace Michigan. Presumably when the performance difference becomes large enough even the left will realize their fantasies should stay in books.

MarkD said...

Passed in the dead of night behind closed doors - you'd almost think they were ashamed of it. It doesn't affect me, but I sent the NRA some money anyway. Maybe they can help knock one or two of these idiots out of office before the next redistricting does.

Robin said...

You mean that brilliant gun control bill that sorta forgot to exclude police from its restrictions?

Revenant said...

We should be happy that police weren't excluded from its restrictions.

After all, if 7 rounds is plenty, it is plenty for the police, too.

phx said...

Something tells me Cheney would be the one who didn't come back.

McTriumph said...

"Something tells me Cheney would be the one who didn't come back."

You are fucking with us right?
That mouth breather Cuomo shows up with a now "safe" 7 capacity New York magazine. Bad ass Cheney shows up with a bag full of 30 capacity mag for his AR and rat fucks the Governor Wyoming style.

Here's how bad it's getting. The Chicago chief of police, with the approval of the city board, has authorized the Nation of Islam to patrol certain parts of the city. Essentially giving police power to a sophisticated gang.
