Repeal the SAFE Act


To The Editor:

Governor Andrew Cuomo is two-faced. I’ve seen him on TV saying he’s in favor of common-sense government after he passed the SAFE Act to take our Constitutional rights away. He swore upon entering office to uphold the Constitution, the illegally passed a law to do just what he swore not to do. He uses taxpayer money to pay bodyguards to protect himself (which I think is a waste of money), then wants to use taxpayer money again ($29 million) to put in an unneeded background system, doing this while laying off state workers and cutting budgets. Does this sound like common sense to you? He also wants people to rat on their neighbors about having a so-called restricted gun. He sounds just like Obama, who is peddling gun control. If you read history, Hitler did exactly the same thing in Germany in 1935-40. After he had the weapons located, he picked them up, then came and picked up and exterminated at least 20 million people. People had no way to protect themselves after gun control. History repeats itself numerous times. So you can never trust a politician to do things honestly. He who gives up his freedom for a little safety will get neither.

The Constitution was written by some very intelligent people to protect your God-given rights from people like Cuomo and Obama. We cannot allow anyone to do anything to take our rights away. All the proposed new laws will do nothing to stop anyone from killing someone if they chose to do so. They will only take away your freedoms. After every new law, they will come up with a new one with more and more restrictions. The idea is to get everybody in a compromising situation so they can promote a one-world government with no Constitution to protect your rights. Watch closely what Obama does to your rights and freedoms every day. He has given us Obamacare, more taxes, many, many executive privileges bypassing Congress, illegal aliens, fixed elections many soldiers killed in the Middle East, sucking up to Russia’s Putin and every dictator in the world, more foreign aid and, his favorite, gun control. They both (Cuomo and Obama) should be impeached and removed form office for illegal activity. Repeal the SAFE Act now. Call your representatives today and demand action: Joe Griffo (793-7072); Addie Russell (786-0284); Patty Ritchie (782-3418); Betty Little (518-455-2811); Ken Blankenbush (518-455-5797); Marc Butler (518-455-5393).
