    Cuomo does have a leg to stand on. Women could get legal abortions in New York before the Roe vs. Wade case was decided by the Supremes.

But New York has been losing people and businesses for quite a long time due to their high taxes, regulations and mandates. Cuomo is trying to attract some of these businesses back to New York by promising no taxes for ten years if they relocate to New York.

    Remember, at one time New York had 47 electoral votes and was the most populace state in the nation. Today they are down to 29 and in the latest census bureau prediction they will lose two more seats in 2020 knocking them down to 27. The people who Cuomo doesn't like have been voting with their feet for a long time taking their businesses with them. I live in Georgia and we have quite a lot of New York companies relocate down here.
    it caused more issues than he thought it would. people are mad up there more so when you get outside of NY city and into places like upstate and other more rural area's were people are less liberal.

    he wouldn't be in back peddle mode if he felt that it didn't have much play. personally NY is only 2nd worst to CA. the only reason NY stays relevant is because of wall street.
    without that NY would crumble to the ground.

    the reason is people like Cuomo. disagree with my point of view and well you just don't belong here. the open mindedness and tolerance of the left wing at it's finest.

    Just looking at gun laws, we see that the Extreme Right is in the minority on most all gun control measures. And, in the case of background checks, they are an extreme minority--less than 15%.
    Among them:

    • Would you support or oppose a law requiring a nationwide ban on the sale of assault weapons? 56 percent supported, 42 percent opposed.

    • Would you support or oppose a law requiring a nationwide ban on high-capacity ammunition clips, meaning those containing more than 10 bullets? 56 percent support, 41 percent oppose.

    • Would you support or oppose a law requiring background checks on people buying guns at gun shows or online? 86 percent support, 13 percent oppose.
    Daily Kos: Poll: Americans still favor background checks, assault weapons ban, gun magazine capacity limits
    Abortion breaks down the same way. For the most part, those who oppose all abortions are an extreme minority, consistently falling below 20% of the population.

    The American opinion on Gay Rights is a little less liberal than those on abortions. With 31% of them saying same sex relations should be illegal.

    So, although there are a lot of anti-gays and pro-assault weapons folks out there, those who want to ban all abortions are but a tiny sliver of the American population. Hence, my estimate that only 20% of the country, at most. are the extremists that Coumo referred to is dead-on accurate.

    Write your congressman or something then. As far as I am concerned. Coumo has every right in the world to tell those obsessed with owning assault weapons who want to deny other citizens their right to an abortion and same sex relationship to stay the hell out of his state.

    BTW, an assault weapon is what the law in NY says it is. Don't like it, don't go to NY.

    Read his quuote. He's pretty clear on what he said. The poutrage, IMO, is the Right imagining that he said something else.

    The judges decision is being appealed as well, because it was the wrong ruling.

    People have the right to bear arms. owning a semi-automatic rifle is included in that overall protection as the right to bear arms.

    Hey stop forcing your myopic view on other people, but I guess you don't care as long as it agrees with your view point.
    No. It's what the law defined as an assault weapon, which a court upheld. If the law declared a p-shooter and assault weapon, and a court upheld the ban on them, then that's what it is. If a court declares it's not; then legally it isn't.

    He's referring to weapons banned in his state by a new law which a court upheld in late December.
    Judge upholds most, but not all, of New York's assault weapons ban - latimes.com

    However, most of the posters here have created their own imaginary boogyman on the subject, and they are all running with their own definitions, like chickens sans head.

    that is being appeal because the ruling was incorrect because they used the wrong definition of an assault rifle.

    get over it. what Cuomo said was idiotic. trying to defend what he said is even more idiotic. he is a gov. and is suppose to represent all the people in his state even those he disagrees with.
    saying that people that disagree with his point of view are not welcome in NY and are not NY'ers is idiotic and stupid and he should be held accountable for such statements.

    Trying to defend what he said is idiotic and there is no defense to it.

    An assault rifle is a selective fire (selective between semi-automatic, fully automatic and/or burst fire)

    that is the official definition defined by just about any website out there. a law making up it's own definition of what an assault rifle is not correct.

    So, your answer is that Coumo gets to choose what rights are okay? WOW!

    He basically said the haters and their assault weapons are not welcome there. I like the gusto in that. Libs are usually all squishy and nice. About time one called it like it is. NY doesn't like haters or their guns.
