Gov. Andrew Cuomo Blames South For New York’s Gun Violence

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

On September 17, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) told an audience at a Harlem breakfast that New York’s surging gun violence was not his fault or proof of the failure of gun control, but was the fault of states “down south.”

Cuomo’s words came the day after his ex-aide Carey Gabay died from a gunshot wound he received when caught in the crossfire of gun violence.  

Breitbart News previously reported there were at least four shootings and one stabbing during Brooklyn’s September 7 J’Ouvert festival. Gabay was shot in the head at that festival.

According to the New York Daily News, Cuomo told Harlem breakfast attendees, “The cruel irony here is that we passed the toughest gun control law in the country here in New York.” He was talking about the SAFE Act, which requires firearm registration, bans “assault rifles,” bans “high capacity” ammunition magazines, and expands background checks, all with the promise of reducing gun violence.

But it has not worked. In fact, gun violence in New York City is surging this year.

So Cuomo is blaming the South. “As long as you can get a gun from some state down south, put it in a trunk and drive it up, it’s gonna get into this state, and that’s what’s happening.”

The gunman, however, has not been apprehended nor the source of his gun ascertained. But this did not stop Cuomo from pushing more gun control, saying, “It comes back to the craziness of the gun violence that we allow to occur. I am a gun owner. I’m not anti-gun. I’m anti-gun for mentally ill people and criminals.”

He said Congress needs to address guns with “guts and courage.”

  1. “The cruel irony here is that we passed the toughest gun control law in the country here in New York.”

    And it still isn’t gonna save your ass Cuomo….
    One more thing Andy… F##K OFF COMMIE … 😡

    1. The gun problem in New York results from guns taken in New York burglaries or northern gun shows, not from gun sold in the South or the West. The lack of effective leadership in New York City or New York State is the reason for the continued problem of inner city gun violence. Leaders who follow the Party line. They are willing to sacrifice black and Hispanic lives in order to get the national gun control they want.
      New York, Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore etc are all cities run by Democrats. Elect anyone other than a Democrat and the problem will go away. My father was right when he declared that his beloved Democratic Party had been taken over by subversives (hard-core Socialist). Nuff said!

        SERIOUSLY, DUDE?????

        You need to take the RED PILL. The false left-right paradigm is obviously well entrenched. To put it as plainly and succinctly as possible, here is a quote from an outstanding movie (a favorite of mine). Granted, it’s Hollywood, BUT, in this it happens to be absolutely TRUE…

        “Senator Charles F. Meachum: There are no sides. There’s no Sunnis and Shiites. There’s no Democrats and Republicans. There’s only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.”

        Bad call, talking as if there is ANY difference between the political ‘parties’
        in this country. You may want to pay close attention to what is posted on FTT.

        Time to wake up. Don’t fall for the banana in the tailpipe.

  2. “Cuomo’s words came the day after his ex-aide Carey Gabay died from a gunshot wound he received when caught in the crossfire of gun violence.”

    WOOHOO, another dead commie!

    “So Cuomo is blaming the South. “As long as you can get a gun from some state down south, put it in a trunk and drive it up, it’s gonna get into this state, and that’s what’s happening.”

    So by inference, you can’t get a gun in the states to the north or to the east? Does he REALLY expect people to BELIEVE this cr@p???

    Oh, wait… he IS talking to vidiots. What was I thinking.

    “It comes back to the craziness of the gun violence that we allow to occur. I am a gun owner. I’m not anti-gun. I’m anti-gun for mentally ill people and criminals.”

    I agree… insofar that ALL you scumbag politicians are BOTH mentally ill AND criminals!!!

    1. Right NWO? I always ask these commies; Well, if all the guns causing your violence come from other, more gun friendly areas, why aren’t those areas violent too? Crickets is the usual response.

  3. Yep, we’re sending ALL our unwanted firearms to NYC. Must be millions of them we’re sending there. We have a plan. Must have millions of firearms we don’t want down here; got’em coming out of our ears, right?

    Now, what state can we send all our unwanted, left-over grenades and bazookas????
