Personally I don’t hunt, but hunting isn’t what the 2nd amendment is about. And it’s people like Cuomo that make these stupid deer-hunting arguments to dumb-down the 2nd amendment and the reason for owning guns in the first place, to convince people to accept tighter gun restrictions using ill-informed logic:
NEWSMAX – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s fiery State of the State speech pushed the state onto the national stage over gun control and other progressive issues that some observers said better positioned the governor for a possible 2016 run for president.
“The tragic events of just the last few weeks in Newtown, Conn., and West Webster, N.Y., have indelibly taught us guns can cut down small children, firefighters and policemen in a moment,” Cuomo said in his third State of the State address on Wednesday.
“No one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer,” he said. “End the madness now!”
Cuomo called for tougher state bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines of ammunition in a bolstering of the state’s gun control laws, already some of the most restrictive in the nation.
The 2nd amendment is about the people protecting themselves from a tyrannical government which means our guns should be as good as theirs. It’s that simple.
