Video - NY Gov. Cuomo Goes Off: 'No One Needs 10 Bullets To Kill A Deer!'


January 9, 2013 11:20 PM

ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – During his State of the State address on Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo made an impassioned plea to the Legislature to ignore pressure from the gun lobby and end the madness of gun violence. He sought the toughest gun laws in the nation.

He admitted he’s a gun owner himself and said he doesn’t want to stop hunters and others from owning weapons, but Cuomo tried to shame the Legislature into action with a passionate speech on gun violence, CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported.

“I say to you forget the extremists. It’s simple — no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer and too many people have died already,” Cuomo said

NYTimes: Despite Protests, Gun Show in Upstate NY Goes On

"The dispute has made for outstanding business." http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/13/nyregion/despite-protests-...

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

It is unfortunate though,

It is unfortunate though, that Petronis, the show promoter agreed not to have AR-15 type rifles sold at the event.

It Was Probably An Easy Concession

...because there don't appear to be any AR-15s left in the USA to be sold anyway. A brilliant "compromise".

Possibly on the mark. I

Possibly on the mark. I figured that is where there would be a chance to get one vs. a store.

Just had a look in the local shop...

shelevs are bare. About 16 models of rifle available in the WHOLE PLACE which usually has HUNDREDS OF MODELS. People bought the assault rifles then the deer rifles then the squirrel rifles then ALL THE AMMO.

Gun shows might be the only way to get a rifle now.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.


I don't need 30 rounds in the magazine to kill a deer. But....I might need several 30 round magazines of high powered ammunition and a rifle to fire with, if attacked in my home by armed militants.

Don't try and tell me armed militant groups do not exist in the US, from what I'm seeing, it's one of the largest industries here.

"Quid Pro Cuomo" is Mistaken

I know people who would probably need more than 10 bullets to kill a deer. Most of them are in law enforcement who required their entire magazine to take down an unarmed citizen.


You paint a graphic picture.

Free includes debt-free!

Killing humans takes more than 10.

What is the record number of Police bullets that have been left in a body in New York?

Free includes debt-free!

Our Minds Are Sympatico

...and you posted more quickly. :)

What catchphrase did you think of to make the point?

Mine had to many words. The price of being quick on the Draw.

Free includes debt-free!

if guns were outlawed, . . .

only criminals and govt psychopaths would have guns.

MAJOR Douche!!!!

Big Time.... Deer = well regulated militia to this absolute retarded dodo bird.... (my sincere apologies to the dodo bird for comparing them to this dumb a s s ! ! ! !

Why, when discussing the Second Amendment,...

...do politicians always bring up hunting? Is the Second Amendment about hunting? Did the Founding Fathers want to make sure everyone had the right to hunt rabbits?

Two possible reasons:

1. Complete ignorance of the constitution and the historical context.
2. Disinformation campaign.

This guy has never eaten venison...

in his life!

At least, not the way we prepare it here in Tennessee. If he had, he would not be so uptight!

That doesn't look right to me. Can I say it in my own language?

This jerk ain't never ate no deer the way I cook it! If he had he wouldn't be livin' in no smelly city eatin' stinkin' caviar or some crap like that!

Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!

He May Have "Had" Some Deer

That is true...

But you need 10,000 (each) to kill tyranny!

I have hunted with an assault rifle

Does that debunk his statement?


Loved that... awesome line!

The only one who is an extremist is

What if..

you want to kill 10 deer?


I try to change people every day. Do You?

This is not "going off"

That's a flat out lie. You can't change what something is just because you don't agree with it. He is giving a normal political speech.

The guy is an absolute nutjob, but I'm sick of the double standards.

Helen Keller would...

Is he suggesting that the disabled shouldn't be allowed to hunt like the rest of us?

i agree

We should start a nude protest to raise awareness about the plight of deaf blind hunters. Shame on the governor fot being so insensitive to the handi-capable

So everyone who believes in their

right to own a semi-automatic is now an "extremist?" This is really getting out of hand, next they will be labeled "terrorist." I believe in the 1st amendment, but this guy and a host of others are slandering law abiding citizens, and he should be tried for just that, slander and defamation of character.

Deer Cuomo,

Deer Cuomo,

The 2nd Amendment was never meant for hunting. It was for defence against idiot tyrant governments.


All this guy is missing is a stupid hair cut and a little mustache.

Does anyone else see the word "hunting" in the

2nd amendment?

As far as I know it had nothing to do with hunting.

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Seems pretty straight forward.

"common sense measures", "safe, reasonable gun control"

Who doesn't like common sense, safety or wants to be unreasonable? Frig'n politicians and their BS manipulating tactics.

BTW - Funny, we never hear of mass home-school shootings. *wink*

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
