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 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]

Gee, yathink?

I award you no points,
and may God have mercy on your soul.

    It is exactly this sort of Dum-Assery ©, that restricts my ability to comment as of late. It makes my head want to explode, and refraining from filling the comments section with words both Vile and Pejorative causes me Asshatstress ©.

    I’m now going to take a half an Ativan and get back to a semblance of normal.

    They could point their finger and say bang bang but that’s not allowed either. Or maybe make a gun shape out of paper.

    Posting is my punching bag session.
    It eases my urge to punch for real.
    Trouble is …
    someday, it may not be enough.
    Then I remember that it’s what they’re counting on.

    Even if we could slap the stupid out of those new york legislators it would take all week for each and there are so many more where they come from.

    I’m waiting for a mentos and two liter coke demonstration out there soon. Hundreds or thousands of them for bloomie.

    Not the diet, the real high fructose sticky coke.

    You can rest assured the Hollywood exemption will apply to cRap Music thugs that may or may not be filming videos as they kill each other in the streets.

    That’s an insult to Benedict Arnold, who rendered brave, risky, and useful service to the revolution before he stopped rebelling against what was actually his lawful sovereign.

    These baby tyrants have been useless tax leeches from their first adulthood.

    Alright now Doug, that’s twice you’ve misspelled your headline. You copy/pasting? Or is that on purpose?

    Sure New York’s SAFE law was an hastily-conceived, poorly-written sloppily-engineered piece of legislation that was railroaded through the Legislature in the middle of the night.

    But passing it DID allow Cuomo to yell “Foist!”

    And that’s what’s important.

    Difference is, Arnold was a whore, Cuomo is a pimp.

    I do believe you’re right.
    He certainly has foisted some crap on NYers.

    Cuomo is just one pimp.

    They spend more time trying to smooth out the wrinkles in the laws that they pass like yesterday’s bean burritos. Seems like there’s always time to fix things, but never enough time to do it right the first time.

    I’m waiting for them to require a disclaimer at the end of a movie: “No actual weapons were used in this motion picture”.

    Just like the disclaimer about cigarettes.

    But people want certainty

    Cuomo’s main claim to infamy is ramrodding the Carter originated Community Reinvestment Act for the Clintons, forcing banks to lend to affirmative action, unqualified home buyers, which in turn, brought the crash of 2007-2008.
    For that alone he should be horsewhipped, not governor of New York. Have all his security team complied with the new gun law yet, or are they part of the exempt elite?
    Ironic justice would be if someone beat him to a pulp with a piece of firewood.

    The “Benny” made me associate “Benito,” as in the Italian leftists called “fascists.” The film industry is “friends” with the government so they are more equal than regular citizens. Just like fascists.

    So if NY is disarmed can Pennsylvania invade and take over the government? I can see them coming out of the mountains of Pennsylvania, going north into those flat lands of NY, and the marxists in Ithaca, Albany, etc. wetting themselves….

    Even more poetic-justicey would be for NY to be invaded by Canada in retaliation for Benny’s invasion of them back in the day.
