Governor Cuomo and 3 other governors joined together in a coalition to fight against gun violence.
Since the Senators and House members can't do the right thing these 4 states are actually taking action.
The fact is that it isn't just "school safety" that is the issue. Republican like to marginalize the real issue by calling gun violence school safety. Sure Schools need to be safe, but what about theaters, parks, public places? In the last two years, mass shootings have happened in more than just schools. The problem really is assault weapons, max capacity magazines, that are a threat to public safety. Not just bump stocks and people under 21. How old was the mass shooter in Vegas? He was 64 and he bought every weapon legally. Most mass shooters are angry white and conservative. There are outliers but overall that is the profile.
The problem is guns not just mental health. Stephen Paddock was never diagnosed as mentally ill. He was a wealthy successful real estate investor. The 5 things that are common are white, male, conservative, angry, and armed with a weapon that can inflict mass damage.
Instead of "hardening schools" and arming a bunch of amateur teachers that don't want to be armed anyway, it's time to get rid of assault weapons, max capacity magazines, do proper thorough background checks, end the gun show loophole, make every gun sale handled by a reputable dealer, register every firearm, and end this nonsense. That would not infringe on anyone's rights. It's just common sense!
Gov. Cuomo has taken the first REAL step in ending gun violence and it isn't costing the taxpayers a dime.
