Mr. Cuomo's soon to be defeated gun grab would not have stopped Newtown, but at least you're all distracted!

Well by your own definition of assault weapon I estimate Cuomo has only stopped perhaps 15% of the weapons used in New York state in crimes. Remember pistola are semis. Remington 1100s are semi. This is going nowhere just like we knew back in 93 that any bans would only live as long as the prevailing politics sustained them and they disappeared not long ago.
This is too nasty for Cuomo to throw away his bid for Presidency over. And that will never happen anyway after this.

Funny, you people have no compassion or sorrow for those 20, 7 years olds. What if it was Harts Hill School, Jefferson School or Clinton Elementary? What if they were your sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, neighbors kids, granddaughters, grandsons, coworkers kids? Would you care then?

Wrong! Plenty of compassion. The true root of the situation was a culmination of the shooter, the shooter's family, mental health professionals and the school.

1. The shooter. This guy had Asperger syndrome, a mental condition which has the ability to manifest into schizophrenia.

2. The shooter's family who chose to mainstream this kid into society like he was normal.

3. The mental health professionals who backed the family in its decision to keep this kid "mainstreamed".

4. The school who did everything to make the school safe and secure except they didn't replace the front door glass with bullet proof or unbreakable glass...good grief..even the see through Pope mobile has bullet proof glass.

I only hope that our local schools and parent-teacher groups take a really good look at their own schools and make changes where necessary.

You probably don't even vot but will deny that. I'm so sure he'll miss your one vote worth of support.

It's all politics. If you think Brindisi (or any others) decision was based on principles, you'd be wrong. He is doubling down on the Arcuri strategy (look where it got Arcuri).
He wants to be seen as a "centrist" in hopes of running for Congress. He's voting with the Tea Party and hoping to get the GOP crossover vote. Either he's miscalculated the very real possibility of a strong primary from the progressive side, or he thinks he can discourage it. Like the GOP and Tea Party, they are scared more of primaries. Brindisi just slapped his base in the face again. He's saying "I don't care what you feel like."
It's risky. The Washington Post national poll showed 55% of Americans agree with New York's new law. Even higher approval rating for some sort of gun control reform - 67%. Even the majority of NRA members agree with universal background checks and the banning of military style assault rifles.
So, although the vocal ones make it seem this is very unpopular, it's simply not true. Just like when the GOP thought the polls were fake and they actually had a chance to win the presidency.
Brindisi has now voted against raising minimum wage and against gun control. I wonder how that plays in a Democratic primary?
