Despite knowing full well that his top aide was shot using a gun obtained illegally, Governor Cuomo is pushing for a national gun control policy to emulate his SAFE Act. The same legislation that failed to stop this shooting.
Following the shooting of a top aide in his administration, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday called for national gun control.
Forty-three-year-old lawyer Carey Gabay was struck in the head by a stray bullet while walking with a friend to a West Indian Day Parade celebration and remains in “very, very critical condition,” Cuomo told CNN.
“How many incidents do we have to have?” Cuomo said. “How many weeks do we have to have with the same story over and over and over about the insanity that this country is allowing to continue with violence and loss of life of innocent people because we have people who have no business having guns having guns.”
Cuomo called for politicians to step up and push for a national gun control policy “that respects the Second Amendment, allows people to have guns – bone fide hunters God bless – but if you’re mentally ill you should not have a gun. If you are a criminal, you should not have a gun. And to do that, Alisyn, you have to check everyone before they buy the gun and that’s the rub.”
The definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. How many times will it take before gun-grabbing liberals get it through their head that people are shot and killed by criminals who will obtain the weapons in any manner possible?
The CNN reporter pointed out to Cuomo that the person who shot his aide, Carey Gabay, had reportedly obtained the gun in spite of New York’s strict gun laws.
Naturally Cuomo responded that the only way to have stopped the shootings is to implement his vision for gun control nationwide.
Cuomo said anyone opposed to such measures is “delusional.”
