Kudos to Rod Watson of “The Buffalo News” for pointing out just how crazy Emperor Cuomo and his minions in the Legislature are when it comes to guns.
Watson drafted, this week, a rather poignant quiz that highlights the harsh realities of gun control that politicians and activists either outright ignore or refuse to address in any meaningful way.
He calls it the “New York State Common Sense Gun Quiz,” and adds at the end, “Depending on how you did on the quiz, you could be someone who truly has common sense – or you could be a New York State official.”
Here’s the quiz:
Question 1: You hear the glass break and the intruder making his way up the stairs to the second-floor bedrooms where your spouse and children are still asleep. Your first move is to call 911 because your home is a gun-free zone. The armed invader, hearing you on the phone, most likely will:
a. Wait for the police to show up, to ensure that it’s a fair fight.
b. Hand you his spare gun and wait for you to draw first.
c. Kill you and your family because you are your own first defender, and you’ve chosen to be defenseless.
Question 2: No civilian needs an “assault rifle” because it is a “weapon of war.” When the above-mentioned criminal breaks in, his intent regarding your family is to declare:
a. A sit-in.
b. An intervention.
Question 3: Deer-crossing signs are effective because bucks and does read them and know where to safely cross the highway. Similarly, gun-free school zone signs are effective – or not – because:
a. Law-abiding criminals read them and decide to go elsewhere.
b. Law-abiding criminals read them and leave their guns outside before storming in.
c. Law-breaking criminals read them and salivate over the soft target.
Question 4: You’re a teacher trying to keep your students quiet while hiding in the broom closet. Suddenly the gunman who breached your school’s security measures yanks open the closet door. With your students’ lives on the line, you want to be armed with:
b. Arts and crafts scissors and a package of crayons.
c. The biggest gun you can handle.
Question 5: Depending on the final wording, the proposal to ban gun raffles will hurt:
a. Sports and conservation organizations that use the raffles as major fundraisers.
b. Volunteer fire companies that use the raffles to buy new equipment.
c. Hardened criminals, who buy raffle tickets to get their guns.
Question 6: When New York State pistol permit holders get hit by the SAFE Act’s requirement that they recertify every five years whether, in the words of the State Police, “you receive a notification letter or not,” state officials most likely will:
a. Send a reminder anyway, like when it’s time to pay up for a renewed car registration.
b. Send a reminder to make sure you know who’s responsible, like when tax rebate checks go out before Election Day.
c. Do nothing and hope that you forget, so they can label you a “criminal” and confiscate your gun.
Again, great job Mr. Watson!
Hopefully, this common sense quiz opens some eyes and when Cuomo tries to push more misguided laws this year that only work to restrict the 2A rights of New Yorkers there’s a groundswell of opposition.
But, then again, the problem with common sense is that it’s not so common, especially in a state run by anti-gun Dems.
