Gov. Cuomo says New York has a ‘gun violence disaster emergency’

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has declared a “gun violence disaster emergency,” for the state of New York with an Executive order that will funnel more money toward gun violence prevention, according to Fox News.

Cuomo’s Tuesday order is being called the “first-in-the-nation” and will push the state toward their goal of taking steps to prevent bloodshed, especially among at-risk youth.

The governor also signed legislation that closed “a loophole that allowed people with outstanding warrants for their arrest to purchase guns,” according to Cuomo’s comments to an audience at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.

The new order is meant to target gun manufacturers in an effort to make sure that there are less funs for citizens to buy from their closest retail establishment.

According to Cuomo’s comments on Tuesday, the state of New York has jumped from one epidemic to another, moving from COVID-19 to what he’s calling another pandemic of violence.

“We went from one epidemic to another epidemic. We went from COVID to the epidemic of gun violence. And the fear and the death that goes along with it,” Cuomo said.

“When you look at the recent numbers, more people are dying of gun violence than of COVID … we’re losing young people.”

According to Fox News the order puts  $138.7 million toward prevention, intervention and employment programs for at-risk youth, and includes $57 million investment that is designated to create 21,000 jobs for youth over the summer.

However, New York Senate Republican Leader Rob Ortt slammed Cuomo’s plan and his publicity stunt surrounding calling it “political grandstanding.” The GOP legislator also said the gun violence crisis is not due to manufacturing, but rather has a direct link to the passage of the state bail reform laws.

Cuomo is a perfect example of just plain stupidity. He should have been gone long ago, and in prison. He is not completely worthless, though, he can serve as a bad example for the world.

The government wants the gun violence so they can justify then confiscating weapons. If you’ll notice it’s nothing but liberal scum that’s causing all the Murders. Liberal politicians inciting the violence. If patriots don’t wake up and starting fighting back we are no better than the communist who want it.
