Right on Senator Ball! You are a true patriot. Thank you for standing strong on our second amendment!
Coumo's "ya dont need 10 bullets to shoot a deeeeeer!!!" speech is in the catagory of Howard Dean's demented scream......Coumo will never be president; trying to out-liberal Obama is not going to work for a white annoying New Yorker with a Brooklyn accent.
Is there any evidence that democrats are patriots? They take umbrage at any comparison of their party with traitors, subversives, etc., but they are leading an all-out assault on the Constitution. In fact, progressive democrats have relegated the Declaration to irrelevant history, and the Constitution to a hindrance to "progress."
Once again, here is proof that elections have consequence. Be honest. How did your representative vote on this bill ? Do you even know ? Wake up before it is too late and we have lost this Republic.
New York has turned into Poland of the 1930's and the people are the inhabitants of the new Warsaw Ghetto.
Beware the unintended consequences of this idiotic move to control guns. It won't work bad guys always get guns. Seems dooflus Como wants to use this legislation as a stepping stone to jump start his run for the golden ring in 2016.
"We haven't saved any lives tonite, except for one - the political life of a governor, who wants to be president," said NY State Senator Greg Ball. "We have taken an entire category of firearms that are in the homes of law-abiding, taxpaying citizens ... we are turning these law-abiding citizens into criminals. ... I voted no. I only wish I could've done it twice!"
Yes, the old, 'Criminalize guns, and only the criminals will have guns' argument.
Sadly, it's true. I wonder how many of these statehouse idiots will realize the blood they will have on their hands...
In the meantime, GREG BALL FOR PRESIDENT!
This anti-2nd amendment stance will really hurt Cuomo for a Pres run (Hannity thinks so too), especially after the crime becomes worse than current
Cuomo was already un-electable as Pres, because he was one of the key people who caused the conditions (forcing banks to loosen lending standards) that led to the recession. Surprisingly that hardly [or slightly] came out in the NY race, but will in a national race.
Good for Ball. We seem to have a never ending supply of incompetent and self-serving politicians who make laws only to promote themselves never to solve problems.
Why isn't HE running for president? Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot...he apparently has a brain and that makes him unqualified!!!!
Sen Ball is spot on. This is liberals bowing down to Obama but ia'm sure Obama's defense he will bow back as soon as he get's the chance.
Disgusting slobs called politicians. This man has honor. How many rounds do those protecting that coke head Governor have in their chamber? Cuomo is a sleaze. There's nothing likeable about him.
That ticking time bomb isn't being taken care of because it's not very lucrative to have to spend your time in a mental hospital actually taking care of the mentally ill when you can drug normal men, women and children and rake in millions. When the ticking time bomb goes off it's good for business because then just like Newtown you can once again forward Mental Health Screening.
I guarantee after they screen your children you will be next.
This NY liberal want to be POTUS? You can't be serious. Other than a big mouth, what's he ever done? (Yes, I know; we have that NOW, don't we?)
well, i voted against cuomo senior. This one is a demagogue. He is trying to turn NY into England or Australia. ( and Thanks for that video from Australia.) Too bad Andrew Cuomo is not good for comedy material.
Every effort should be made to make sure his name is MUD, and will never be elected to ANYTHING ever again. And since he resorts to the demagogue - any political stunt that makes him UNelectable is a good thing.
Can the drones out there spell demagogue ? Maybe they think they were voting for Mussolini. In fact, I think the whole mess in Albany needs to be exposed.
Wow, just something positive, this guy amazing. He should run for congress, I suspect that that he might just come into a national figure!
His first mistake was to say, "It's good to be in the State of New York". I think it's good to leave the State of New York. Anybody that stays and wants to keep their Constitutional rights is going to have to be committed to it. Is anyone willing to stand and say, "No, you will not take my guns and ammo. You will have to arrest me"?
It is a scary scenario. But, as Glenn Beck says, we have two choices. Civil revolution that makes us look like the wackos they want us to look like or peaceful disobedience, where we stand as one and say, no it's not constitutional and we need to take it to court.
New York is the first of probably many States that will do this. The President may well come out with Executive Orders that deny us our 2nd Amendment rights. If civil unrest is what it takes, then we must do that. But before that, will we be ready to stand on our convictions against the threat of being arrested and convicted as felons (subsequently losing our right to bear arms and the right to vote)?
We each need to look inside ourselves and decide. I already have. I'm an American citizen and I have the Constitutional right to bear arms. It shall not be infringed. Come and arrest me.
the mental health system is broken here in Va too....I suffer from severe depression and at one time, a doctor thought that I might be bi-polar....the only sure way to know is to see how I react to different powerful medications (mood stabilizers, anti-psychotics, anti-seizure meds).....I was 24 at the time (I'm 30 now) and have to go on and off these meds when they weren't producing the desired effects had begun to take its toll on me.....one night when I was in a very dark place, I took myself to the psychiatric hospital because I was afraid of what I might do to myself if I spent the rest of the night alone.....had no idea what I thought they could do, just knew that my life could very well depend on being there......after hours of waits, I was placed in a room on the addiction/alcoholic floor because there was no room in the psych wing.....it was late and I was able to sleep pretty easily after the benzodiazapines the doc gave me for anxiety.....I woke up the next morning on my own and started to wander down the hall looking for a nurse or doctor (nobody had woken me up) I knew that it was time to take my anti-depressant but I was refused and told that I would be taking a different one and no one could give it to me til later.....it didn't take long to figure out that they had lost track of me in the system and I had to seek out a nurse and explain why I was there so she could take me to the psych wing (where I was simply dropped off, not even sent to talk to anyone or told what I was supposed to do) I found an empty room and cried for hours trying to figure out how this was of any help to me....during that time, I learned that my doctor had stopped at the hospital to see me and they couldn't find me and turned him away......I was just a number, lost in the system, and denied the chance to speak with my doctor....I demanded to be released and checked myself out of the hospital while the docs and nurses were puzzled as to why I would do that.....never once was I ever a danger to anyone but myself, however, what if I was a violent person with homicidal thoughts?? I can only pray that no one like that slips through the cracks like I did.
That must have been a horrible experience for you. I so hope your depression is better. I have a son who suffers from severe anxiety and depression. It breaks my heart and there is little I can do for him. The best to and for you.
Please watch this before you decide how to help your son. Find a qualified MD who believes in vitamin therapy and assures you it doesn't have physical causes which is usually the case.
I'm a New Yorker, I'm a Republican. I don't see any reasen why we, New Yorker's, should vote in Republicans to the state sanate. After all, there is no difference between the sanate republicans and their liberal counterparts.
- Sanate Republicans allowed Gay marriage to become law
- Sanate Republicans voted for higher taxes on the so called 'rich'.
- And now THEY, (not the democratic assembly) took the intuitive and voted in favor of tougher gun control.
---------------------------What the hell is wrong with these guy's?!----------------------------------
He's right. And not only that, he should have mentioned that there is a "little" thing called the Second Amendment. I hope there is a legal challenge to this law in New York State. It will be interesting to see how that plays out, even in a liberal state like that.
Email him and thank him. You don't need to be in his district. http://www.nysenate.gov/senator/greg-ball/contact
He's spot on. And yet they still passed this piece of trash legislation, effectively making NY the most dangerous state in the union. Morons.
I expect a migration of law-abiding citizens to leave that rotten, liberal oasis for criminals as the full effect of this ridiculous law is realized. To my brothers and sisters who frequent this blog, my sincerest condolences. NY has lost much of what made it great.
NY's Cuomo and Bloomberg deserve the "Moron of the Year" award for being this blatantly stupid.
