2nd Amend.

Cuomo: That gun law I signed turned out to be utterly unworkable, huh?

If Andrew Cuomo has truly had an epiphany about his approach to gun regulation, it’s not really evident from this admission. The New York Times reports that Cuomo will now try to rush some changes into his banner gun-control legislation that forced New York gun owners to use magazines that no one manufactures, with even the one exception to the rule found to be unworkable (via Legal Insurrection):

In the wake of the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York pushed through the State Legislature gun control measures that included not only a tougher assault weapons ban but also a tighter restriction on the maximum legal capacity of gun magazines.

But after weeks of criticism from gun owners, Mr. Cuomo said on Wednesday that he would seek to ease the restriction, which he said had proved unworkable even before it was scheduled to take effect on April 15.

    Article : ” . . . turned out to be utterly unworkable”

    Just like anything a liberal signs.

    • Rattlerjake

      Why is there a photo of Bloomingidiotberg when the article is about Cuohomo? (Yes, misspelled on purpose!). Both of these dipsh-ts should be hung for violating their oaths of offices.

  • Ray O’Rourke

    You and your “A” team didn’t realize your bill had all these flaws and it’s unconstitutional? Well guess what Cuomo, whatever you pass we will NOT abide by! You’ll also NEVER get the nomination in 2016! You’re a braindead GOON! Upstate NY hates your stinking guts!

    • fliteking

      His recent video ensures he WILL NOT be a candidate in 2016 .

      For a minute I thought I was watching Mussolini .

      • gwinf

        You were watching the modern incarnation of Mussolini. Actuallu, Cuomo is just a wanna be. Bloomberg is the reincarnation of Hitler.

        • fliteking

          Yes, agreed, and millions of liberals are being sucked into the freedom hating void this &%$#@&^%$ creates everytime he opens his mouth.

    • 7papa7

      Cuomo is utterly unworkable. He is a certifiable idiot. I don’t understand how NY has voted in some of the total morons they have from Cuomo to Bloomberg. NY you should be ashamed of yourselves. The only reason they are in office is because you voted for them. You didn’t do any better with your senators and congressman either.

      • Riggs2500

        Cuomo is in office for the same reason that Obama is. When you steal enough money from working tax payers and give it to welfare and liberal special interest groups and corrupt public unions they have the ability to steal elections.

        • 7papa7

          That is why it is so critical to get the conservative message out clearly and concisely. It also must be at a level that a liberal can understand. Look they voted overwhelmingly for Reagan because he could do just that a clear presentation of conservatism and he won, I believe, 49 states.

      • Superduty

        The people that voted these idots in shouldn’t procreate.

        • 7papa7

          A big AMEN to that. It is a shame that birth control isn’t retroactive.

      • Ray O’Rourke

        The only way these morons get elected is because of the libscum dems down-state in the City. Up staters are more conservative but we are always out-numbered by them!

        • 7papa7

          NY needs to get the conservative message out in a clear way and this will change.

    • Sinatra98

      Hey Ray, Man that was well done all these horses a__es jump to conclusions then find themselves in trouble, well in any cae your not getting our guns no matter what you and the rest of you cold hearted LIBERALS do.

  • horseridingplains

    You mean, you forgot it was unconstitutional??? and against Dick Act of 1902–the gov. is by the People
    not by select group of elitests

  • Anthony Alexander

    Thinks about what Cuomo 2.0 has said…..Here we have a lawyer surrounded by LOTS OF LAWYERS crafting a law that is unworkable. Now that is reassuring….now you wonder why how things get screwed up quickly especially in NY. When liberals off the cuff use their emotions and not rational logic in their decision making, it adds to the many symptoms of proof that liberalism is a disease. These people will continue to irrationally create all sorts of meaningless laws that are based on THEIR visionary fantasies. These fantasies are all failures, yet they still persist in this agenda, despite its madness, and therefore fall under the old saying insanity is doing the same things over and over again expecting different results. Yet, despite all the evidence against it, the modern liberal mind believes their agenda is good social science. It is, in fact, bad science fiction. Moreover the liberal always has scapegoats, far flung theories, distortions and above all LYING, to prop up and keep their mindless fantasies and doctrines moving, and when the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains, speaks of conspiracies and credulous statements seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.

    • Alexander Davidson

      The problem is that such men are lawyers without a God (even if they pretend to go to church) and man, if he cannot follow God and the HIGHEST set of Laws (which NO man can destroy, only THINK to) – then man will never be able to craft and follow his OWN laws! As soon as men find their own laws “unworkable” they try to make new laws, whichever way the wind blows, or the money under-the-table flows! man is definitely “corruptible” in many more ways than biblical!

    • gwinf

      Good reason why lawyers should not ever be allowed in public office.

    • Hawkeye3939

      Just like the Progressive morons who think spending more of the taxpeyers’ money will somehow improve the stagnant economy. They live on fairy tales.

    • garysvent

      It is possible that they are just doing the only thing they know how to do, given their political philosophy. They used to get away with this stuff, before the public got the net and got wise, and the news media was altogether in their pockets. Maybe they just try stuff to see how much they can slip through the cracks. Sort of a slimy Hitler-ism.

      Sure glad these lawyers and would-be leaders aren’t actually doing anything important.

  • Chief_Cabioch

    this comes from the false concept they have some unlimited power with obama now in office…..what they FAIL to realize is, Obama will FALL faster than he rose

  • Rick Zimmermann

    IN THE WAKE OF THE PHONEY NEWTOWN SHOOTING with it’s ACCEPTABLE CASUALTY COUNT, and as the American People with a BRAIN have learned that an Assault weapon of ant kind WAS NOT USED at Sandy Hook, and that there were three (3) shooters not some mentally disturbed Scape Goat, the Politicians should be re-enforcing the Second Amendment ,not trying to destroy it or the Freedoms We enjoy as a People and a Country. The State of California,and New York along with Chicago really need to back the Hell Off and Live up to their “OATHS OF OFFICE” and not the ravings of a few Treasonous Politicians and their followers.

    • gailfilerino0403

      Absolutely! Look at California, Chicago and now Colorado and Connecticut. Everyone u s leaving California run by liberal communist socialist and dead broke. Chicago has mass murders no employment no hope run by liberal communist socialist. Colorado used to be a thriving red state but the liberal communist socialist took over and are in the process if destoying that state. All the arms manufacturers will bd moving out anybody else eith goof sense. Connecticut is on it’s way down with the liberal communist socialist dragging them down. Colts gun manufacturer’s moving out and the good people will follow. Their done. Everywhere these libs go destruction soon follows.

    • gutterfalcon

      They keep bringing up New Town. obutt plug said long ago he was going to Disarm America, people have short memories. He has been planning his Dictatorship for along time. I ordered shells from Cabelas in Sept. Before the shooting, Before the election, I couldn’t get them back then, still haven’t. The government was buying up all the ammo clear back before Sept.

  • wildeagleone

    Cumo and Bloomberg is the intelligence God gave to the sloths in the rain forest and they belong there

    • act

      Don’t berate the sloths. They have never tried to harm anyone. They are better than that trash.

  • Terry Adams

    typical lib. push it down everyones throat quick. And then oh i didnt know it wouldnt work. lol so just how far is his head up his butt? Are the people of new york really that stupid to allow these people to stay in office? God help us all

  • MontieR

    How about erasing the entire ILLEGAL law and resigning.


    actually it did work PI666ED EVERYONE OFF.

  • leesjokers


    • Gary

      Cuomo is a dumb ass,he made it illegal for his own cops to own the weapons they use.

  • Terry Adams

    Ray O Rourke thank you it nice to see that all new yorkers arnt stupid.

  • worldwatchman

    Cuomo, Bloomberg…….dehydrated brain mass. Consistency and size of a dryed hemmoroid.

  • pointdan

    what was the rush, andrew ???? wanted to beat obama to the marxist throne ??????/
    may you both burn in hell !

  • colt38

    Stupid is as stupid does.

  • watchdogman

    You folks in NY sure know how to pick your political leaders (sic) and then threaten to tar and feather go ahead and T &F them…most of America would love you for it!

    • garysvent

      And those of us who need practice at it could help?

  • foxxybey

    Is this idiot in chief in New York for real, tells us we have no right to protect ourselves, what we can drink or not drink and what to eat or not eat, last time I checked we were free to choose. When does he outlaw homosexuals? Don’t they spread aids without a cure and tons of money spent so they can continue what they are doing? Come on HItler, your all for the people? Oh, only fat people need obey what is good for them? LOL, what a joke of a so called leader.

  • ron


  • ocarol500

    I have trouble comprehending how these “leaders” end up thinking they are the ultimate authority for ordering everyone else around. Who died and made them gods?

  • Stealth

    CUOMO- YOU sir are as BIG an ASS as our STUPID-ASS frigging Governor here in the STUPID-ASS state of Connecticut!

    • bob

      You forgot about the Great State of Illinois. Or should I say the state run by Chicago. You know where the crime rate is the highest in the nation and the gun laws are the most restrictive. The only state without any kind of carry law.

  • gailfilerino0403

    These liberal leftist socialist communist all need to understand that we have had enough of them forcing down our throats their stupid liberal idealoligy. People need to start understanding that all these bad things going on are the liberals at wk. They are in our schools trying to teach our kids to hate America and transdressing at 7 yrs old is ok. They are trying to wipe Christians and free thinking out if our society. Thry are trying to bankrupt America, disarm America, shove gay marriage in our face and on every t.v. program. The are weakening our borders, our military & buying up BILLIONS of rounds of ammo domestically. They are an evil route that has been growing for the last 50 yrs in all area of government, education, law enforcement and they need to be voted out and exposed. We need to go out to our communities and educate people on what is the liberal & the liberal agenda.
    As opposed to the conservative constitutionalist. Not the democrat vs the Republicans. No it’s the liberal communist socialist vs the conservative

  • James Fontana

    Cuomo needs to rush through legislation that would wipe out his previous abomination called the NY SAFE act. This man ia a total bufoon. Between Cuomo and Doomberg we are in a heck of a mess in NY. We sen people to Albany to speak and act for us and they do as they please.

    • garysvent

      “We sen[d] people to Albany to speak and act for us and they do as they please.”

      New York State … the mini-America.

  • 4b4mac

    Further proof that so many of similar treacherous acts are the work of ideological idiots – rather than by informed entities. It also proves that treacherous disregard for law (Second amendment) is of no concern as they simply double down on their mistakes and stupidity.

  • ReaperHD

    Prime example of an Anti-american scumbag. It’s all about disarming Americans and control and not about the children.

  • $5905143

    Just relax and have a 64oz Coke with Bloomberg………..

  • conservative

    You can’t fix stupid!

  • Nikita63

    That’s at least in part because Cuomo, like all professional parasitical politicians, did little research on the proposed firearms legislation and had little real knowledge of the issues. Neither do those in Washington; ESPECIALLY THAT FEINSTEIN WOMAN! SHE WOULD PUNISH ALL LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS FOR EXISTING LEGAL COMPLIANCE AND, UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, SHE HASN’T THE RIGHT.Technically, if one looks rationally at the Amendment: THERE IS NO ARGUMENT ABOUT THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS AND, THE AMENDMENT IS BUT A SINGLE SENTENCE IN STANDARD ENGLISH FOR A REASON: IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO “INTERPRETATION,” AND THERE WERE NOT 40 MILLION FOREIGNERS SPEAKING A VARIETY OF LANGUAGES IN THIS COUNTRY LEGALLY OR OTHERWISE WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN. THERE SHOULD NOT BE NOW. Reasonable controls on who can possess weapons of this nature should be predicated on individual responsibility by record, no other criteria. Veterans of foreign wars who served should not arbitrarily be forbidden to exercise their right any more than active military should be denied the right to vote; BUT, THEY WERE! That alone should be a flag for the rest of us. Government in NOT your friend and, they wish to disarm you as a matter of extending their control over you. DO NOT LET THEM. AUSTRALIA AND BRITAIN HAVE BEEN JOINED BY CANADA IN TELLING US NOT TO ALLOW IT AND EVEN THE ENGLISH EDITION OF PRAVDA, GIVES US THE SAME ADMONISHMENT: WE SHOULD HEED IT!

  • dave

    You spent our tax dollars against our second amendment rights. Don’t even think about running for president. America sees your commie side.

  • jgeorgia2000

    “…We’ve done it before, we can do it again”..? You mean to tell me NY was a safe place to go/visit/live at sometime in the past? Only in the areas where people own guns legally. Never heard anything, ever, about NYC and/or Albany

  • hitthedeck

    New York’s Mussolini! LI Duce Cuomo.

  • KDS

    It will never work period because it is against the laws as written in the Constitution. The NRA is now suing the state of New York. All they really need to say in court is it’s violates the Constitution and I rest my case. Any sane Judge should know what to do after that!

    • John W.H.

      Finding a sane judge in new York may be easier said than done !!

  • Superduty

    What do you call a Donkey’s azz, How about Cuomo.

  • TPS12

    The battle cry of democrats. We have to pass this bill to see whats in it.

  • John W.H.

    Since they don’t make 7 round mags, for most weapons, he said they can use a 10 round magazine if they only put 7 rounds in it,!! what a moron does he really believe that the people committing crimes with guns will really follow his request or orders for that matter to just put 7 rounds into a high capacity magazine??

  • CrustyOldGeezer


    My folks took me there once, and all I got was this lousy flesh wound.

    Seen on a Tee Shirt circa 1970’s

  • KDS

    We need to examine the power of one man. In Tienanmen Square China. One man stood in front of a tank and startled the world! From that moment on Freedom from Tyranny was put in it’s place forever. A single tank crew had to instantly make a decision to crush a single man to death. The state had nothing to do with this decision. Rolling over him would have been an extremely easy thing to do. We need to have the courage of one man to stand in front the tank before us and end the insanity before us. If we don’t our lives have no meaning what so ever and we will all accept the consequences for it. These people had no guns!!!! But we do!!!!!

  • mthammer

    Cuomo like Bloomberg complet Ignorant & Stupid Politicians in New York . They have great familiarity with the Fraudulenet Obama Administration in Washington DC , the difference there is everyone in the Obama Administration are Ignorant & Stupid , but They are all racist and should be impeached , especially Eric Holder The Attorney General and Head of the Justice Department he is totally Incompetent and a Liar that is why he has been censored by both the Senate & House of Representatives , firts time in American History , plus the Black Caucus called it discrmination . it seems like when African Americans get that power they love to flaunt it especially to the White man

  • S Rubicon

    Stunning incompetence. This shows the law was crafted by rabid anti-gun ideologues. Legislators are NOT listening to those who own & use guns. If they were, any new legislation would be crafted to respect gun owners & their right to keep & bear arms. The stuff coming out of legislatures at the state & national levels that attack gun ownership, are showing a malicious & deliberate attempt to enact punitive laws & impose punitive taxes & fees. 9,000 plus existing laws did nothing to stop any of the mass shootings. Ignoring the facts shows a complete disconnection from reality by legislators & gun grabbers. That most shootings took place in “gun-free” zones, is a clue. That some type of drug was being used by the shooters is a clue. That many of America’s wealthy, elite, & politically connected send their own kids to schools that are protected by armed guards, but schools for average folks children are not armed, is a clue. The clues are patently obvious. That the clues are ignored, is also a clue & is patently obvious that the plans have nothing to do with protection and everything to do with eventual confiscation.

  • Ken

    A brain dead liberal.

  • R. Alan Price

    Well, This is just the Dumocrats par for the course. Open mouth-insert both feet! Do they themselves really believe the crap they are trying to peddle to the American people? That’s okay! 2016 is just around the corner and we WILL put this country back on the “Right” path. America, don’t let up on your fight against B.O. and his band of criminal cronies! We will defeat the socialist movement in America!
    God bless the United States of America! Long live the American Gun-owner!

  • Donnie J McDonald

    The left wing politicians listen to the main stream media and drink all the koolaid they spout. The normal Americans do not buy the left wing rants and ravings about guns. Politicians like Cuomo actually think he has support for these laws when in fact it will destroy his political career.

  • Keenan Lee

    Didn’t read the bill but I believe he can get around the bill he passed by hiring police officers from other states. That way no NY police officer will be in violation. All the police will be from PA, NJ, or other surrounding state. They can carry more than 7 rounds in their magazines. Otherwise each officer will have to carry a magazine chest-rig like the military.

  • Fred_Shrinka

    Just keep it – We still have “ObamaCare (sic)” right??

  • Sgt. York

    Another crayfish for a Governor. They just never learn how Americans truly feel until they step in it..

  • Lester Peoples

    Second Amendment says citizens have a right of self protection –even from Govt. If the Govt. is using hollow points by the millions being produced and armored vehicles, then shouldn’t Citizens have equal weapons accord by even the Genova convention in war, for equal protection. Fairness isn’t a part of the dictatorial communist leadership we have in power tho’.

  • Lorenzo Llama

    Half Baked Half Cocked – the condition of many liberal leaning “men”. The girls and the girly boys and the chasers are terminally deprived of conscious thought and reason owing to the slavish devotion to the drive.

  • moparfan54

    This is what happens when you have a dim witt in a position of power. He attempts to pass a law that is not guided by experience or knowledge about which he is attempting control. Another case of mouth in gear, brain in neutral.

  • Bierwagon

    Benedict Cuomo’s days as an elected official are over. Chairman cuoMOA sold us out for purely political gain, and we wont soon forget it. bad career choice chairman, bad career choice.

  • Bierwagon

    T2A codifies a Right that existed BEFORE the Constitution. Its thick with legal mumbojumbo, but between pages 15 and 30 is everything you need to know to make a liberals head explode.

    You really can’t get mad at Cuomo for being this stupid. He’s practicing to become a stand up comedian! Being governor is his side gig!

  • June Gagnon

    Too late, coocoo cuomo, you’ve revealed your “true colors” and lack of Americanism; you can now deport yourself, voluntarily, back to Italy or any country beside the USA!
