Andrew Cuomo pontificated emotionally in his State of the State address about gun control. He boasted that he would come up with the toughest assault weapon ban in the country.
This is self-congratulatory talk—“How tough am I.” Cuomo is trying to attach himself to the death of the children and receive some approbation for speech rather than action. He wants us to think of him as the savior of our children even though I doubt that he would or ever has taken a bullet for one. He has not earned the right to make such an emotional speech. He is another poseur.
While Cuomo’s speech makes sense his very being is a razzmatazz jumble of political puffery. His logic has flown to the wind. He is tears in a bucket. But he is crying for himself. He wants the world to love him for the good man he imagines he is.
He is drawing attention to himself as a great humanitarian. But a humanitarian does not vulture-like stalk the sadness and tragedy of others. He does not grandstand by lifting the bodies of dead 1st Grade children. If he wants to feel like a great person why doesn’t he throw himself in the way of a gun and save a child? Why doesn’t he give away 95 per cent of his income and help poor children? Why doesn’t he stop being a child and stop pretending he is great when he is merely a loud mouth crying?
Cuomo cannot steal the thunder of death. He is a lightning rod, not an explosion.
What scares me about Cuomo is what frightens me about Obama. They both speak like little Hitler’s in a bottle. They harangue. They harass people who have different opinions than them. They are bullies.
That is why I am less worried about gun control for the crazies than I am about having guns for a militia so we can defend ourselves against the politicians if they become militaristic. Dictatorship is false humanitarian feelings turned into authoritarian governmental attacks. We need to defend ourselves against Adam Lanza. But we have to defend ourselves more against the dictators, the politicians, amongst us.
Cuomo goes on to say, “Forget the extremists.” He is pointing his finger but he doesn’t admit that it’s always the extremists, like himself, who call the innocent victims of their policies “extremists.”
He says that, “No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer and too many innocent people have died already. End the madness, now!" The madness is Cuomo’s lack of control. We will need more than 10 bullets to stop liberal fascism.
I agree with Cuomo's when he urges, "safe, reasonable gun control." It’s not the law I’m worried about. I’m afraid of his mad disposition. He and Obama are Adam Lanza’s with armies at their disposal.
Cuomo then laid out a seven-point plan, which was reasonable. If only he weren’t an extremist liberal. I approve of his federal background checks of gun sales, keeping guns from the mentally ill, etc. But I don’t approve of narcissists like Cuomo and Obama trying to strip us of our weapons to defend against their political megalomania. When we find a way to monitor their power-insanity, we can try to monitor the mini-killers like Adam Lanza and James Holmes.
