    New York Re-Passes Harsh Gun Laws 

    gun control New York Re Passes Harsh Gun Laws

    New York State passed the toughest gun control laws in the nation today…or rather they re-passed them.

    New York’s Assembly on Tuesday easily passed the toughest gun control law in the nation and the first since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, calling for a tougher assault weapons ban and provisions to try to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill who make threats.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo pushed hard for the bill, which passed the Senate on Monday night. He is expected to quickly sign the measure into law.

    “This is a scourge on society,” Cuomo said Monday night, six days after making gun control a centerpiece of his State of the State address. The bipartisan effort was fueled by the Newtown tragedy that took the lives of 20 first graders and six educators. “At what point do you say, `No more innocent loss of life’?”

    The measure, which passed the Assembly 104-43, also calls for restrictions on ammunition and the sale of guns.

    “This is not about taking anyone’s rights away,” said Sen. Jeffrey Klein, a Bronx Democrat, when the bill passed the Senate late Monday night. “It’s about a safe society … today we are setting the mark for the rest of the county to do what’s right.”

    I love it when these foolish politicians say “it’s not about taking anyone’s rights away.” I guess they mean unless your rifle has a pistol grip and the magazine holds more than 7 rounds. After all it’s those darn pistol grips that cause such carnage around the nation.

    What these idiots don’t seem to understand is that someone who wants to commit a gun crime doesn’t give a damn about this new law. The new law requires gun owners with high-capacity magazines (ones that hold more than 7 rounds) to sell them out of state within one year — or else.

    But here’s the funniest part of New York’s “new” law. The so-called “assault weapons” it outlawed today were already illegal in the state as were high-capacity magazines. All they did was lower the magazine capacity from 10 rounds to 7. I’m sure the loss of those 3 extra rounds is gonna save thousands of lives. What a joke. And I’m sure the gangsters in NYC will be sure to keep their magazines under the 7 round limit.

    Gawker: Gun Company CEO’s Are To Blame 

    big gun logos Gawker: Gun Company CEOs Are To Blame

    The website Gawker has a long and distinguished history of writing some pretty stupid things. Writer Drew Magary’s lengthy screed today attacking firearm manufacturers and the people who run them is a prime example. He collectively refers to gun manufacturers as “Big Gun” and says it’s time we start making their CEO’s “part of the conversation.”

    Ron Cohen is the CEO of Sig Sauer, the company that produced one of the guns that was used in Friday’s Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre. You have probably never heard of Ron Cohen before. I know I never have. I tried to find a decent picture of him this weekend, but I came up empty. He may as well not exist.

    In the wake of the shootings, Cohen’s name has appeared in a grand total of one Google alert.This is by design. You aren’t supposed to know anything about Ron Cohen or about Sig Sauer. Every time a tragedy happens and you, Mr. Gun Control Advocate, decide to lash out at the NRA, or at “our national obsession with guns,” or at the classic straw man hunter who needs a 50-bullet clip just to chase down a squirrel, you’re doing Ron Cohen, Sig Sauer, and everyone else at Big Gun a huge favor.

    One of the amazing things about the gun control debate in America is the remarkable success with which gun manufacturers—Sig Sauer, Glock, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, The Freedom Group (yes, it’s called the fucking Freedom Group)—have been able to avoid the conversation altogether. When you think of Glock, you think of a gun, and not of the company behind it.

    Magary’s absurd argument is that we should somehow hold Sig CEO Ron Cohen personally responsible for one of his guns being used at Sandy Hook. He must pay the price for a kid stealing his mother’s legally purchased Sig firearm and going on a killing spree? That’s about the dumbest argument I’ve heard thus far in the wake of this tragedy.

    Using that logic I guess we need to hold Anheuser-Busch President, Luiz Fernando Edmond, personally responsible for each and every alcohol related traffic death that occurs in this country. When a person gets blind drunk on Budweiser at a football game, gets behind the wheel, and kills a family of four — Luiz Fernando Edmond is to blame.

    What about all the people who die from overdosing on prescription medication? Should we hold the CEO of Roche USA responsible when people eat too many Valium and wash them down with a bottle of booze? Maybe we should hold the CEO of both pill and liquor companies accountable, no?

    What happened at Sandy Hook is beyond tragic. It’s about the worst thing imaginable. But the real issue is mental illness not guns. Maybe we should be holding a few doctors responsible for what happened.

      you’re doing exactly what roger and other gun company ceo’s want by not wanting to have them be a part of the conversation about gun violence. you are one of the people Magary was talking about in the article. you give these guys a free pass. i think it’s great that you don’t give a shit about this shooting. and you say that we should hold doctors responsible. doctors are some of the only ones trying to help these people unlike gun company ceo’s and pricks like you and you want to punish them for that. great plan moron

        What exactly would their contribution to the conversation be? The kid stole legally purchased guns from his mother. What exactly should the CEO of Sig say about that? Sorry, that happened? What is it you want him and other gun company CEO’s to do?

      You forget one thing: Budweiser isn’t lobbying for drunk driving laws to be relaxed, or repealed.

      I get your logic, but when you make arguments like this you only make it harder for sensible gun owners who want sensible laws.

        The NRA has been very supportive of legislation that helps keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.
