Rushing through a radical gun law law, passing it without reading it, is what Andrew Cuomo wanted, and his legislature gave it to him.
Cuomo signed the unread law full of half-baked ideas, empty rhetoric, and bad policy moments later, turning hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers into criminals.
He did this all for one reason: the right to claim that he was “first” to “do something.”
Andrew Cuomo did “something,” alright. We just don’t know how bad it is in total, not yet.
What we do know is that the law he forced through the legislature in backroom deals did nothing to address the mental illnesses of or defend against the next Adam Lanza, James Holmes, Jared Lougner, Seung-Hui Cho, Eric Harris, or Dylan Klebold.
He didn’t save any lives. He may cost more than a few.
Cuomo and his stooges, Senate leader Dean Skelos and Speaker Sheldon Silver, simply rammed through bad legislation nether read, nor debated, nor reasoned, nor considered. It was a bum’s rush from the Bums of Albany.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants more than anything to be President of the United States. He proved tonight he has neither the courage, the temperament, nor intelligence for the office.
May God have mercy upon his victims, the people of the state of New York.
