Governor Andrew Cuomo has hate in his heart for people not like him. He has publicly stated his feelings about his bigotry towards anyone who doesn’t agree with his lock step totalitarian progressive regime. His views is that they can get out of “his” state because they are not “real New Yorkers.”
Here’s the entire quote from Cuomo:
The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.
Apparently if you aren’t in favor of abortions, if you believe in the 2nd Amendment and you believe in the sanctity of marriage you aren’t really a New Yorker. Apparently those mainstream positions that the majority of the country hold are “extreme” in New York.
Radicalized despots like Cuomo enjoy being locked into echo chambers where they only hear what they want to hear and they recoil as if stung by being challenged by anything resembling facts or logic. So it comes as no surprise that outside of his armed bodyguards and those of his limousine liberal friends, I doubt that Cuomo has any friends that are pro gun.
So it comes as no surprise as he seeks to punish the gun owners (most of whom live upstate) with what is tantamount to a poll tax, that being a fee in order to exercise a right that should be free.
