Cuomo Blames “The South” for New York Gun Violence

Cuomo’s words came the day after his ex-aide Carey Gabay died from a gunshot wound he received when caught in the crossfire of gun violence. At least four shootings and one stabbing occurred during Brooklyn’s September 7 J’Ouvert festival. Gabay was shot in the head at that festival. It is rumored that all steak knives in New York City restaurants will soon have to be registered.

According to the New York Daily News, Cuomo told Harlem breakfast attendees, “The cruel irony here is that we passed the toughest gun control law in the country here in New York.” He was talking about the SAFE Act, which requires firearm registration, bans “assault rifles,” bans “high capacity” ammunition magazines, and expands background checks, all with the promise of reducing gun violence.

The result of all this restriction: gun violence in New York City is surging this year.

So Cuomo is blaming the South. “As long as you can get a gun from some state down south, put it in a trunk and drive it up, it’s gonna get into this state, and that’s what’s happening.”

Really? It is a 3100 mile round trip between New York and Dallas…yup, lots of NYC gang members are doing that…

The gunman, however, has not been apprehended nor the source of his gun ascertained. But lack of info did not stop Cuomo from pushing for even more gun control, saying, “It comes back to the craziness of the gun violence that we allow to occur. I am a gun owner. I’m not anti-gun. I’m anti-gun for mentally ill people and criminals.”

Why doesn’t he give up his gun since he is so committed. Besides, he is surrounded by people bristling with guns as it is.
