Gun Manufacturer says Cuomo’s New York is not SAFE for business . . .

Gov. Cuomo’s middle of the night raid on New Yorkers’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms has claimed another victim. Cuomo’s so-called “SAFE Act” poses onerous restrictions on the manufacture, sale and possession of previously legal firearms and was passed on a phony “emergency” basis without public notice or debate. Though significant portions of the ill-advised and sloppily drafted legislation will eventually be struck down in court, it’s effects will be, in many cases, permanent. Lost jobs is one such case. Pennsylvania can add these manufacturing jobs to the the thousands lost by New York due to Cuomo’s fear of the anti-cracking protesters.

Gun manufacturer will move its headquarters, and expand, outside of New York, due to uncertainty created by Cuomo’s SAFE Act.:

Business has been good for Rockland County-based Kahr Arms, so much so that it plans to expand with a new factory on more than 600 acres.

The trouble, at least for New York state: The gun manufacturer, currently based in Rockland County, is expanding across the border in Pennsylvania, and in the process will be moving its headquarters out of the Empire State. The reason, according to a corporate official, can be found in the swift passage last January of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s SAFE gun control law.

It wasn’t so much that the measure bans certain kinds of guns and magazines, the company said. Instead, it was the suddenness with which the law was passed — less than 24 hours after being released to the public — leaving Kahr’s executives to wonder what kind of unforeseen regulations or restrictions might lie ahead.

“One of our big concerns was, OK, the SAFE Act was passed in the middle of the night. You wake up the next morning and boom, that was it,” said Frank Harris, Kahr’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We just felt like, gee, if they can do this, what can they do next?

 

Governor Cuomo rolls the dice on even more graft and corruption for NY Democrats . . .

New York Governor Cuomo’s casino gambling gambit will allow for four casinos in New York State and their locations will be chosen by “Cuomo and legislative leaders.”

And guess what? Cuomo and the legislature will be free to accept contributions from potential casino operators despite a prior Cuomo promise to ban such gifts.

If casino gambling is beneficial to communities then why not apply such policies state-wide? It’s really very simple. Legislation and tax policies which provide benefits to all citizens yield fewer votes, political contributions and favors to Democrats than “targeted” proposals. The Democrat guiding principle is to divide us into groups, and then to threaten punishment to certain groups while offering rewards to others.

Despite the Democrats incessant bleating about “fairness,” unequal treatment of both groups and individuals is essential to Democrat electoral success. Graft, envy and anger are the keys to Democrat hope and change.

Cuomo’s “crony capitalism” tax-free communities proposal follows Democrats divide and prosper strategy . . .

Governor Cuomo’s latest crony capitalism scheme, called the “Tax-free Communities” bill, adheres to the progressives long-time political strategy.

According to Cuomo’s Bill Memo, it would allow favored entities, primarily public universities under state control, to “bring [business] ventures to these communities by offering new businesses and expanding businesses that create net new jobs the opportunity to operate completely tax-free – including no income tax for employees, no sales, property or business tax while partnering with higher education institutions.”

If tax-free zones are beneficial to communities then why not apply such policies state-wide? It’s really very simple. Legislation and tax policies which provide benefits to all citizens yield fewer votes, political contributions and favors to Democrats than “targeted” proposals. The Democrat guiding principle is to divide us into groups, and then to threaten punishment to certain groups while offering rewards to others.

“Kermit’s Law” protecting late term abortionists is popular in NY; Once Dr. Gosnell is paroled, Governor Cuomo can appoint him Commissioner of Health . . .

Albany Times-Union:

A poll released Thursday morning by Quinnipiac University finds two-thirds of New Yorkers surveyed back Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to create an affirmative right to an abortion and codify in state law federal court rulings that allow women to have a late-term abortion for health reasons.

Pollsters told 1,075 voters that New York law currently allows an abortion if a woman’s life is at risk, and notes the latest proposal allows a later-term abortion “when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health as determined by a licensed physician.”

Cuomo can call it “Kermit’s Law” after Dr. Gosnell of Philadelphia . . .

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to introduce contentious abortion legislation on Tuesday, and his aides and women’s rights groups have identified Republican state senators whom they will pressure to support it, according to people familiar with the matter.

The governor’s proposal would change state law to allow abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy to protect a woman’s health, a broader exemption than the current law that provides for late-term abortions only if a woman’s life is at risk. The legislation would have little practical effect: federal law already allows such abortions to protect a woman’s health and supercedes the more restrictive state law.

But Tuesday’s unveiling of the “Women’s Equality Act”—which also includes nine other elements of Mr. Cuomo’s women’s rights agenda—will set up a philosophical fight in the state Senate over a divisive issue that has defined the nation’s culture wars for four decades.”

Cuomo can call it “Kermit’s Law” after the convicted Philadelphia late-term abortionist/murderer . . .

NY Times:

“ALBANY — Bucking a trend in which states have been seeking to restrict abortion, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is putting the finishing touches on legislation that would guarantee women in New York the right to late-term abortions when their health is in danger or the fetus is not viable.

Mr. Cuomo, seeking to deliver on a promise he made in his recent State of the State address, would rewrite a law that currently allows abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy only if the pregnant woman’s life is at risk. The law is not enforced, because it is superseded by federal court rulings that allow late-term abortions to protect a woman’s health, even if her life is not in jeopardy.”
