New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rammed through one of the most restrictive gun laws in the United States. It was done so fast that the geniuses in Albany forgot to exempt cops from their unconstitutional laws. Well, now that Hollywood has gotten involved, Cuomo is finally going to do something about it.
“We spend a lot of money in the state bringing movie production here, post production here. So obviously we would want to facilitate that,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo said the prop firearms used in films would probably not be classified as an assault weapon.
“But people want certainty and there’s no reason not to make a change like that,” the governor added. “Apparently, they have blanks or they have phony magazines or something.”
Cuomo and lawmakers announced on Wednesday that they’ll also fix an error that made its way into the law.
The measure passed so quickly that as it reads now, police officers carrying high-capacity magazines could be in violation of the law, Diamond reported.
It’s been known since this unconstitutional law passed that police officers weren’t exempt. But now they’re trusting Hollywood elites more than their own police officers because the elites have “phony magazines or something?” Gah! Living in this state makes me feel like I’m sailing on a ship of fools.
