Gun Control
The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America secures the right of citizens to bear arms. Specifically it states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. The left wants to eliminate guns from every law abiding citizen because guns are dangerous. Unfortunately, this leaves guns only to criminals. Not a very smart approach to eliminating a constitutional right. A right that has nothing to do with the role of guns in 18th century life. The Founders knew that throughout history, government overreach, as Britain did to their colonies and without the ability to defend themselves, is unrestricted. Give a look at the way law abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves at Armed Citizen.

Feud Escalates Between Cuomo and the NRA

from The Wall Street Journal,

New York governor accused the group of political bullying and the gun organization said it could suffer financially from the state’s actions.

A feud between New York’s governor and the National Rifle Association escalated over the weekend, with Andrew Cuomo accusing the group of political bullying and the gun organization saying it could suffer financially if the state’s actions remained unchecked. “They are political bullies,” Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said Saturday of the NRA, a nonprofit that advocates for gun rights, at an event in New York City. Mr. Cuomo and the NRA have been at odds for months over actions of the Department of Financial Services, a state regulator that in May said a liability insurance program for members, called NRA Carry Guard, violates state law, a claim the gun group denies. The insurance covers legal costs incurred after self-defense shootings. Later that month, the NRA sued Mr. Cuomo, the department and its superintendent, Maria Vullo. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of New York, accused the state of a “political blacklisting campaign” to stop insurers and banks from doing business with the NRA.
