Gov Hochul Rejects The Facts In Crazy Gun-Grabbing Mission
New York Governor Kathy Hochul has gone full-Cuomo and insists that she doesn't 'need to have numbers' when accusing lawful gun owners of crimes yet to happen. A reporter dared to question the tyrannical leaders' reasoning behind her new stiff gun control plan which caused the Gov to snap.
Hochul is set to convene a special session Thursday to push through new tighter gun control restrictions after the Supreme Court recently overturned a nearly century-old law that restricted concealed carry permits. Among the proposals include banning firearms from government buildings, courthouses, hospitals and schools. Another proposal would ban firearms at any private business unless the business has a sign explicitly stating guns are allowed, CBS 6 Albany reported.
The NY Gov said that the Supreme Court ruling would lead to more gun owners carrying—As if they're the ones committing crimes? I hate to break it to her but criminals prefer their weapons UNregistered...
“All of a sudden now you’re on the streets. Now you’re going to bars, this is not the Wild West, this is New York State,” Hochul said.
A reporter then asked whether Hochul had any data to back up her outrageous plan.
“Do you have the numbers to show that it’s the concealed carry permit holders that are committing crimes? Because the lawful gun owner will say that you’re attacking the wrong person, that it’s really the people getting the guns illegally that are causing the violence not the people going and getting the permit legally. Do you have the numbers?”
“I don’t need to have numbers. I don’t need to have a data point to say this. I know that I have a responsibility to the people of this state to have sensible gun safety laws, and this one was not devised by the Hochul administration. It comes out of an administration from 1908. I don’t need a data point to say I have a responsibility to protect the people of this state.”
“Someone who is going to go do a mass shooting or something like that may not go and get a conceal carry permit,” the reporter pushed back.
“I never said there’s any correlation between our solution here and the Buffalo case,” Hochul said.
