Listen up all of you Rebels and Texicans, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo of the Glorious People’s Republik of New York, the surging crime and violence in NYC is not the fault of his voting block. No, the violent crime is the fault of people in “the south” having access to firearms.
During our SWAT Fuel Fitness Talk Jarrad discusses dedications and the guys consider whether or not you should be hard to impress. We have a report of a negligent shooting in Ohio and how not to use your .22 rifle when you are in the field.
“Authorities say a 17-year-old Amish boy was struck in the head by a stray bullet while plowing in rural northeast Ohio.
WEWS-TV reports the boy was shot Thursday morning in Kidron with a .22-caliber bullet that lodged in his head. Investigators don’t know who fired the shot, and say it’s possible it was someone hunting squirrels who hit the teen accidentally.
The boy was using a horse-drawn plow at the time. Police say he noticed he was bleeding, and walked home to tell his father about the injury. WEWS-TV reports the Amish family does not have a phone so they went next door where a neighbor dialed 911.
The youth was taken to Aultman Hospital in Canton and X-rays showed the bullet lodged in his head, Wayne County Sheriff’s Captain John Hunter said.
The bullet was removed Thursday afternoon and the boy was released from the hospital.“
“On September 17, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) told an audience at a Harlem breakfast that New York’s surging gun violence was not his fault or proof of the failure of gun control, but was the fault of states “down south.”
Cuomo’s words came the day after his ex-aide Carey Gabay died from a gunshot wound he received when caught in the crossfire of gun violence.
Breitbart News previously reported there were at least four shootings and one stabbing during Brooklyn’s September 7 J’Ouvert festival. Gabay was shot in the head at that festival.
According to the New York Daily News, Cuomo told Harlem breakfast attendees, “The cruel irony here is that we passed the toughest gun control law in the country here in New York.” He was talking about the SAFE Act, which requires firearm registration, bans “assault rifles,” bans “high capacity” ammunition magazines, and expands background checks, all with the promise of reducing gun violence.
But it has not worked. In fact, gun violence in New York City is surging this year.
So Cuomo is blaming the South. “As long as you can get a gun from some state down south, put it in a trunk and drive it up, it’s gonna get into this state, and that’s what’s happening.”
The gunman, however, has not been apprehended nor the source of his gun ascertained. But this did not stop Cuomo from pushing more gun control, saying, “It comes back to the craziness of the gun violence that we allow to occur. I am a gun owner. I’m not anti-gun. I’m anti-gun for mentally ill people and criminals.”
He said Congress needs to address guns with “guts and courage.“
