Jackass NY Gov. Cuomo Wants Dems to Shut Down Govt. Over 2nd Amendment
Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling for a government shut down in response to the shooting in Roseburg, Oregon.
“I’d love to see the Democrats stand up and say we’re going to shut down the government or threaten to shut down the government if we don’t get real gun control legislation,” Cuomo told NY1.
Cuomo, who had mulled the idea of running for president and eventually threw his support behind Hillary Clinton, said so-called gun control should be a top election season issue.
“I would like to see Hillary and the vice president and whoever else is in the race on both sides talk about this issue of guns and let’s have that as one of the top priorities,” he said. “Rather than the political blather that is now going on and let’s put some real issues on the agenda and let’s put at the top: What are you going to do about guns?”
The inability of government to restrict the Second Amendment “is such a blatant failure of our political system and frankly such a blatant failure of the elected officials in this country,” Cuomo said.
