Just a month after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the strictest gun control law in the country, state officials plan to make some exemptions. The law … will be changed so those types of weapons can be used on the sets of television shows and movies being shot in New York.
And why might that be necessary, or even desirable?
“We spend a lot of money in the state bringing movie production here, post production here. So obviously we would want to facilitate that,” Cuomo said.
Ahhh, I see. Hollywood money.
Can you say “pimp,” boys and girls?
Cuomo said the prop firearms used in films would probably not be classified as an assault weapon. “But people want certainty and there’s no reason not to make a change like that,” the governor added. “Apparently, they have blanks or they have phony magazines or something.”
Or friggin’ SOMETHING ?!
Is that the technical legal term you’re gonna put in the new law, you ignorant, blathering jackass?!
[T]hey’ll also fix an error that made its way into the law. The measure passed so quickly that as it reads now, police officers carrying high-capacity magazines could be in violation of the law, Diamond reported.
You, what … enacted the beta version?!
The need for a “clean-up” bill means the fight over the law may not be over after all. [more]
and may God have mercy on your soul.
