Cuomo said he wanted to “quell” the infection, “treat” the “Public health issue,” “target hotspots with data and science,” and “break the cycle of escalating,” aka “flatten the curve.”
To accomplish these goals, Cuomo announced specific gun control measures, including an effort to undercut the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), a federal law protecting gun makers from frivolous lawsuits. Cuomo made clear his intention to counter PLCAA by re-instituting New York’s Public Nuisance Liability for Gun Manufacturers. He declared that the goal is to remove “immunity” for gun makers.
He also stressed smart gun technology, which is technology that operates via bio-readers for fingerprints, like a smart phone, or uses a bracelet or ring that sends a single to activate the pistol. Both technologies have proven troublesome, as bio-readers struggle to read fingerprints on blood or mud-caked hands and the bracelets to make a gun operational can simply be stolen with the gun, making it easy for the criminal to use.
Considering how much blood on his hands Cuomo has for his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, his effort to deny New Yorkers their 2nd amendment rights can be expected to result in more deaths of innocents.
