New York Governor Kathy Hochul has now signed a massive new batch of gun control legislation into law, including a measure which raises the age at which a citizen can purchase a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21.

As The Daily Wire reports:


New York Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul signed a 10-bill package of gun laws on Monday that included raising the age to legally purchase a semiautomatic rifle from 18 to 21 following several recent mass shootings nationwide.

Hochul signed the package to immediately strengthen the state’s gun laws and close “critical loopholes” as lawmakers seek to decrease shootings. The governor signed the bills at the Northeast Bronx YMCA with New York State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D), Speaker of the New York State Assembly Carl Heastie (D), partners in the legislature, New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), and victims and survivors of gun violence in attendance.

“Gun violence is an epidemic that is tearing our country apart. Thoughts and prayers won’t fix this, but taking strong action will,” Hochul said in a statement.

“In New York, we’re taking bold steps to protect the people of our state. I am proud to sign a comprehensive bill package that prohibits the sale of semiautomatic weapons to people under 21, bans body armor sales outside of people in select professions, closes critical gun law loopholes and strengthens our Red Flag Law to keep guns away from dangerous people—new measures that I believe will save lives,” she added.

Hochul has been a longtime advocate of imposing new, draconian gun laws on American citizens.

How many more people are going to be killed by criminals, because law abiding people cannot defend themselves? That should make someone REAL rich, because they should then sue the the State of New York AND the so-called Governor PERSONALLY! I would bet that she has guns protecting her!! Maybe those guns should go away too. Besides, IT IS unconstitutional. God Help US!
