Cuomo is really hypocritical when it comes to firearms
This letter is in regards to Rep. Chris Collins’ announcement that he will carry a concealed personal firearm while traveling throughout his New York State congressional district.
Our illustrious governor, Andrew “SAFE Act” Cuomo, lambasting this reckless decision, stated, apparently in all seriousness: “It should concern everyone. No, the answer isn’t carrying a gun.”
There seems to be some confusion here. Perhaps The News could file a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the total number of taxpayer-financed officials who, when accompanying the governor everywhere, are carrying “unnecessary” personal protection firearms, concealed or otherwise. I’m betting the total is much more than zero.
I guess when it comes to his protection, Cuomo believes carrying guns is the answer.
