Andrew Cuomo pushes gun control

It looks like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is gearing up for the 2016 Presidential race. During tomorrow’s State of the State speech, he is expected th announce a gun control legislation that would place restrictions on assault weapons and magaIne size, and tougher penalties for crimes when a gun is used.

I wonder if politicians like Cuomo realize how transparent and opportunistic they appear when they use a tragedy to advance their political goals. Did school shootings appear before the incident in Newtown, CT? Yes. Would Andrew Cuomo be pushing this legislative package if the shooting didn’t occur? It’s highly unlikely.

I’m not sure what I find more despicable: Cuomo’s attempt to erode our liberty, or using a tragedy to advance his agenda.
