SAFE Act forces business out of NY


To The Editor:

I hope that every New York state resident has noticed our “idiot-in-charge” Gov. Andrew Cuomo has succeeded in forcing Remington Arms out of Ilion to move to the state of Alabama. The governor of Alabama is apparently a lot smarter than Cuomo, as he hasn’t illegally passed the SAFE Act there. They most likely want a good, reputable company that employs about 600 people to come there. New York, on the other hand, has lost those 600 jobs plus the money that was spent on manufacturing material, electricity, property tax, sales tax and all related business.

You can see right there that Cuomo is really looking out for our welfare. Next year he’ll probably raise taxes to make up for this “screw-up” SAFE Act loss of jobs.

Remember this when voting in November. This is gun control in action. Doctors and hospitals kill more people every year than guns ever did.

I believe Cuomo is running for office again. I think it takes a lot of nerve to take people’s jobs and rights away and think people will vote for him. I wouldn’t vote for him for garbage collector.

I heard one of Cuomo’s campaigners on the radio saying the SAFE Act is a good law and that hunters need no more than seven rounds. The Second Amendment is not about hunting. It was put in the Constitution so citizens had a way to protect themselves from our own government. With Cuomo and Obama, it seems we surely need it sooner or later. You should never give up your rights for any safety promised by politicians. As you well know, they lie continually.
