New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is one of the nation’s most ardent anti-gun politicians still in office. If it was left up to him, no private citizen would own a firearm of any kind.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is nearly as anti-gun as Cuomo. Like Cuomo, if left to him, no resident of the Big Apple would own a firearm. Many of the city’s leaders are also anti-gun liberal Democrats, who don’t care about the personal safety of their citizens, placing their anti-gun agenda as being more important.
Not only does New York officials target their own legal gun owners, but also people traveling from other states. They regularly arrest and prosecute law-abiding citizens who have legal gun permits from their home states, follow TSA rules for traveling with their gun and follow proper notification of New York officials about them traveling there with their legal gun. It doesn’t matter if you are a legal diamond dealer carrying a fortune in diamonds and carry your gun to protect yourself and your diamonds, you will be arrested and prosecuted.
Oftentimes we conservatives are labeled as “anti-government” and we’re called “conspiracy theorists” because we believe that the government is more often a force for evil than for good.
We point to leftwing states trending towards fascism (like California, New York, Illinois, and New Jersey) as our evidence that we’re not being paranoid when we worry about the leviathan-like growth of the government.
The laws they pass can be illogical, are often oppressive, and sometimes they are even counter-productive. But liberals don’t care, because they’re not worried about the “effectiveness” of their bad laws, they’re more concerned with power. They want more of it and they want their citizens to have less of it…
The best advice for everyone not living in New York City is to avoid the city at all costs. If you have business dealings with someone in the city, have them come to you or meet on neutral ground somewhere else. It would be worth it to you to pay for their travel than it would be to end up arrested, fined or jailed for obeying the laws.
