‘I Don’t Need To Have Numbers’: Gov. Hochul Trying To Pass Strict Gun Control Says She Has No Evidence To Support Her

DC:

Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said she doesn’t “need to have numbers” to back up her strict gun control proposals.

Hochul is set to convene a special session Thursday to push through new tighter gun control restrictions after the Supreme Court recently overturned a nearly century-old law that restricted concealed carry permits. Among the proposals include banning firearms from government buildings, courthouses, hospitals and schools. Another proposal would ban firearms at any private business unless the business has a sign explicitly stating guns are allowed, CBS 6 Albany reported.

Speaking at a press briefing Wednesday, Hochul said after the high court overturned the law, gun owners would carry more.

“All of a sudden now you’re on the streets. Now you’re going to bars, this is not the Wild West, this is New York State,” Hochul said.

A reporter then asked whether Hochul had any data to support her gun control push.

“Do you have the numbers to show that it’s the concealed carry permit holders that are committing crimes? Because the lawful gun owner will say that you’re attacking the wrong person, that it’s really the people getting the guns illegally that are causing the violence not the people going and getting the permit legally. Do you have the numbers?”

“I don’t need to have numbers. I don’t need to have a data point to say this. more

  1. At this point I’d almost rather have ol’ David “Blinky” Paterson back as Governor. It was fun watching him try to sign anything, he had to plant his nose right on the table. Completely inept and corrupt. Hochul is turning into Cruella De Vil, and it looks like she’s got the election in the bag.

  2. Have you ever noticed that “men” married to these witches (William J. Hochul Jr. in this case) always look like they’re in a coma?

  3. Wouldn’t it be something to see if the good citizens of New York State hanged that bitch by her heels from a lamp post? Not that I would condone that or anything of the sort.

  4. She’s just following AOC’s lead, and being morally correct rather than factually correct.

    Leftism really is a mental illness.

  5. @Heatsync ~ AOC isn’t ‘morally correct’ … far from it, she is morally vapid

    & yes, ‘progressive utopianism’ is a mental disease

  6. & I would add … call them what you want … progressives, leftists, communists, socialists, democrats, environmentalists, globalists … whatever. they all promise the same as most any other religion or any other human-created governance … they’ll make a heaven on earth, if you only follow their dictates

    as Ringo Star said in ‘Help’ … “sorry, I don’t subscribe to your religion”.

    Translates to, I’m lying thru my teeth but GUNS, EWWWW. Doesn’t seem to bother her the bad guys have guns. Maybe the stats she should look at are NYC crime stats.
    Interestingly enough, the FBI does keep stats on CCW shoots vs LEO shoots. CCWs fire far less rounds and are far more efficient. She’s a fucking moron.
    Last Monday in Akron Ohio 8 cops shot a guy 60 times for failure to stop. They shot AT HIM over 100 rounds. Nice.

  8. These are the people that the left put in office. They like this behavior, they condone this behavior. I don’t want to be under the rule of these people and I don’t want to live with these people.

    We either split the nation amicably or we split it forcibly. I don’t see another way.

  9. Citizens with CCW, bad,bad, bad.
    Citizens with Surgeons Certificates, good, good, better!

  10. And if she did? If The Science(TM) was settled? And Saint Fauci smiled?

    So. What?

    When those that call you “enemy”. Offer you A Choice(TM). You’ve already lost. If you’re dumb enough to take a seat at the table.

  11. In a brilliant move, LONG AGO,
    NY was the first state to come up with a slogan to attract tourism:
    “I Love NY”.

    Times change, circumstances evolve, and slogans must change accordingly:
    “Stick a fork, in NY”

  12. This wretched POS sounds a lot like Jebbie Bush of some years ago. Let us hope she suffers the same electoral fate!
