Cuomo Doubles Down On Calls For Federal Gun Control

posted on September 28, 2015

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo isn’t done agitating for federal gun control in the wake of the shooting death of Carey Gabay, the top state attorney. According to Huffington Post, Cuomo also made the murdered man’s funeral eulogy a platform for more anti-gun rhetoric. “His death was one of the most tragic, pointless examples of the rampant violence that is spreading like a cancer through our society, especially in our poorer communities and especially in our communities of color,” Cuomo said.

We agree with his characterization of Gabay’s fate as tragic and pointless, but we reject his assertion that legislation targeting law-abiding citizens will do anything to confront the endemic violence that he identifies. Rather than stumping for more pointless laws, Cuomo would have done better to focus on celebrating the life of his friend.
