King Cuomo declares gun violence a public health emergency – gives him dictatorial powers


Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose no-bail laws and mass release of prisoners have ruined crime-fighting in New York, has a new plan to solve the crime wave. His latest plan – a distraction from the core problems – is to declare so-called gun violence a public health emergency.

He plans to treat ‘gun violence,’ which is actually gang violence, like COVID. It gives him dictatorial powers.

So far, his plan includes:

  1. Treat gun violence like the emergency public health issue it is
  2. Target hotspots with data and science
  3. Positive engagement for at-risk youth
  4. Break the cycle of escalating violence
  5. Get illegal guns off the streets
  6. Keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people
  7. Rebuild the police community relationship

According to officials from the governor’s office, this measure:

  • Officially declares gun violence as a disaster emergency
  • Requires Division of Criminal Justice Services to gather and share incident-level data from local police departments on gun violence
  • Creates an office of gun violence prevention to coordinate efforts and direct resources to emerging gun violence hotspots
  • Invests $138.7 million in intervention, prevent, and jobs programs to engage at-risk youth and get young people off the streets
  • Creates new state police gun trafficking interdiction unit to stop the flow of illegal guns into the state
  • Partners with John Jay College of Criminal Justice to strengthen police-community relations

This is going to be an excuse to confiscate guns.

If gun violence is a disease, the cure is to take our guns away. The CDC has even called gun violence racist. This is a way to confiscate guns from legal gun owners while the criminals still have them.

Or he could just bring Rudy G. back and put him in charge of stopping the exploding crime. Ask the former Mayor and crimefighter to focus on NYC.

“Gun” Violence isn’t the problem. I’ve never seen a gun just jump off a table or out of someone’s pocket all by itself and kill someone. Guns are tools, just like a knife or a Chainsaw. The Problem is Crazy People and Big Blue Cities seem to breed them. If you won’t take criminals off the Street and hang the repeat offender murders, you will NEVER have law and order. A reality is there are bad people and some will never learn to function as productive citizens in a complex modern society.

Gov. Cuomo has proven that he can’t Govern and made decisions that resulted over 10,000 deaths. We need a way to immediately remove incompetent Leaders short of assassination or that will once again become the tool of choice by The People. No Politician or Bureaucrat should be immune from crimes against humanity.

Police know who create the problems in a community; but without serious Prosecutors, Hanging Judges, and jails that keep every prisoner in solitary confinement, then reprogram them before release, we will never get control of violent people. Our jails have become little more than “Terrorist” and “Criminal” training grounds. You can’t have institutions where criminals teach each other how to be better criminals. Only people who are truly rehabilitated should be let out of jail. Every Heinous Violent Crime should be a potential Life Sentence and 3 strikes with mandatory life ( and a Death option) should be the rule for Violent Crimes.

When I lived in Singapore there was virtually no violent crime; caning seemed to work very well as a deterrent. In Arab countries where there is public caning, the Public Disgrace and “loss of face” is more of a deterrent than the physical pain. Loss of face, is so severe in some cultures that it leads to suicide. The big bad Gang Member crying for his mommy isn’t usually allowed back into the Gang or any other gang.

Long prison sentences are a waste of time, What we need is shorter sentences with a lot more reorientation, and for the “lost souls” who just refuse to get it, a greater use of the Death Penalty. Think in terms of 6 months of total Solitary, 12 months of Military Style Boot Camp, 6 months of “adjustment” therapy and a year in a halfway house, with the threat of having to start from the beginning if you screw up and only 3 chances before the key is literally thrown away for every Heinous violent crime.

It may sound harsh, but every other citizen has a right to live in a violent crime free country. That really is a Right; an Inalienable Right! A welfare state is BS!

His plan does not include aggressive enforcement and prosecution. Nor does it include strong action against gangs. The gangs are allies of the left.

Etch out the tablets, put up the sharp edge signz, sippy cups and safe spaces, free snocones, midnight basketball, sailing with the poleeces (Baltimore).
The immaculate gov has spoken and the problem is solved.
What happens when the problem is still there after helicopters of money and rainbow touchy feel good SJW programs?

It gives him nothing! There is no ‘in case of tyrant’ clause in the Constitution.
