Cuomo criticizes Democrats on gun control

Mar 01, 2018 12:04 pm
Jimmy Vielkind reports for Politico New York that Gov. Andrew Cuomo criticized fellow Democrats Feb. 28 for not advancing gun control legislation. “I’d like to see the national Democrats put a real gun bill on the table: full background checks, no loopholes, mental health database and ban assault weapons,” Cuomo said. “I understand why the White House won’t do it, I don’t understand why the national Democrats don’t do it.” New York Senator Chuck Schumer shot back, “The national Democrats are debating it, so for him to say that is incorrect. We are going to do it.... We’re pulling everything together, and we’re going to have a very strong package." Cuomo also criticized Republicans and the plans they have put forth. “It’s a political tactic to make it look like you’re doing something when it will have no real effect,” Cuomo said. “How that’s a responsible answer to this, I have no idea. I think they’re afraid of the NRA, and I think the NRA’s opposition to the move, 18 to 21, is a political charade. I think it’s just so they can say they acted against the NRA. What real difference does it make to the NRA if the age goes from 18 to 21? They lose sales temporarily, but they get them back.” Read the full story in Politico New York.
