Cuomo is re­ally hyp­o­crit­i­cal when it comes to firearms

The Buffalo News - - OPINION - Ron An­tholzner Sr.

This let­ter is in re­gards to Rep. Chris Collins’ an­nounce­ment that he will carry a con­cealed per­sonal firearm while trav­el­ing through­out his New York State con­gres­sional district.

Our il­lus­tri­ous gov­er­nor, An­drew “SAFE Act” Cuomo, lam­bast­ing this reck­less de­ci­sion, stated, ap­par­ently in all se­ri­ous­ness: “It should con­cern every­one. No, the an­swer isn’t car­ry­ing a gun.”

There seems to be some con­fu­sion here. Per­haps The News could file a Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act re­quest to ob­tain the to­tal num­ber of tax­payer-fi­nanced of­fi­cials who, when ac­com­pa­ny­ing the gov­er­nor ev­ery­where, are car­ry­ing “un­nec­es­sary” per­sonal pro­tec­tion firearms, con­cealed or oth­er­wise. I’m bet­ting the to­tal is much more than zero.

I guess when it comes to his pro­tec­tion, Cuomo be­lieves car­ry­ing guns the an­swer.
