New York City is NOT the same as New York. You should avoid spreading ignorance. In addition, the SAFE act passed by back stabbing REPUBLICANS in the state senate.
Take a look at this map of NY counties that have passed resolutions in opposition to the SAFE Act:
I stood in line for 2 hours at my county courthouse the day it was open for public comment on the resolution opposing the SAFE act. There were HUNDREDS of people there.
I attended an anti-SAFE act rally in Albany outside the state capitol. There were THOUSANDS of people there.
The people in Albany don't represent the people in the state. That is a fact! Your comment is like the MSM saying no one supports Ron Paul while ignoring the thousands showing up at his rallies across the USA. I might as well say you deserve the TSA, NDAA, Patriot Act, TARP bailouts, etc. because you voted for it.
We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
-C. S. Lewis
