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.


  1. THes guns crap-nut heads like this are the ones who let criminals out and refuse to prosecute them but go, after all, law-abiding citizens, The damn communists in government. SHe refused to do her duty and back the law not make new communistic laws

  2. 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!

    1. Yeah, but remember——A cross bow, a blow gun, and an Australian boomerang are all silent …..and lethal.

  3. Why aren’t they concerned with disarming criminals instead of disarming legal gun owners???

  4. Does this woman realize that young men and women, once they turn 18, can enlist in the military and be TAUGHT how to use AUTOMATIC weapons, let alone semiautomatic weapons? Or is she another shit for brains politician whoring herself for votes?

  5. Hocul is just another liar who is trying to control. I do believe her state is one of the bad ones when it comes to using the laws they have against criminals including criminals that use guns. She stands be hind criminals and many New Yorkers just don’t have the brains to see this. There are many ways to stop mass shootings especially at schools. Looking at this last Texas shooting I want to see a “TRUE” investigation. This investigation would include what web pages the shooter went to, his emails/messages/any other correspondence and their content and with whom, his acquantiances and who encouraged what, on and on. See I believe that these mass shootings are “helped along” by people that have an agenda of controlling the American public. These people have been successful, look at the numbers that took the covid vaccines. The FDA doesn’t have to release safety info on the vaccines and they are not. The CDC is another organization thaat should be on top of this safety issue and they are not. In short big pharma, whom you can’t sue apparently, owns these organization to hide naything they wish to be hidden. Hence the same with Gun Control. These “controls/super rich/elites have always thought they deserve control, they deserve the vast majority of the wealth, they aare the only ones smart enough to run your life. The controllers/super rich/elites don’t care who gets hurt or killed as long as they get control. This has been shown through out history time and time again.
    You want to know the enemy look first to the people who oay for this. BTW, both parties take money from these people.

  6. Does that order also cover the gang bangers who purchase their firearms from the trunk of a car?

  7. And what is she doing about the evil in human hearts? NOTHING!! That is when it gets fixed. Please hurry Jesus.

  8. They are desperate to dis-arm Americans so we can’t resist when they cancel the Constitution and our rights disappear. They want total control and gun owners pose a threat to that. I can’t believe normal Democrats (if there are any) would go along with that.

  9. Kathy Hochul has got to be either crazy or stupid. Awright,so none of those young kids can buy semi-automatic rifles any more. Fine and dandy, but she’s apparently too dumb to understand that there’s such a thing as bolt-action rifles. that they can buy to their heart’s content. “Hey, kid, ya wanna buy a Springfield ought three rifle?”

  10. Both patently UNCONSTITUTIONAL. #1-Every American citizen (“The People”) has the right to have a gun uninfringed. #2 People have the right to protect themselves, so why not “body armor? It can’t hurt anybody unless they take it off and beat somebody with it. If somebody want’s to wear it, that should be her choice-NOT HER’S ! At some point people will just do what they want anyway, because they will only take so much. Criminal’s will just ignore these laws anyway, so NOTHING WILL CHANGE.

  11. Did the bill also make 21 the minimum age to vote? If people under 21 are not considered mature enough to be trusted with a semi-automatic rifle without supervision, they are not mature enough to be allowed to vote. Only adults should have guns without supervision or vote, and 21 should be the legal age of adulthood for most purposes.

  12. Why does my comment need approval? Is this a free speech site or isn’t it? Comments are made for debate and does not require a moderator. It would appear that this site is not dedicated to free speech and thus, I shall unsubscribe

  13. I guess you misspoke that last line? Draconian is a set of values wherein more guns means more safety from guns. Look around, according to that stupid idea we should be the safest country on earth. We’re off the charts in number of guns and number of gun deaths. But you’re still living your gun-wet-dream. It’s obvious this is beyond you, the numbers tell you nothing, You no longer have a brain, just a fetish for lethal force.

  14. This is not a serious person. She’s too stupid to be fit for any political office. She’s a lot like Joe in that way.

  15. She’s an idiot. The only thing tearing this country apart are the stupid demoncrat policies.

  16. Inbred, degenerate , socialist slut Hochul is nothing but a worthless puppet for the GESTOPO of the democratic party !!! If a law abiding 18,19,20 year olds cannot get a semi automatic rifle until 21 ,,,,,, then this ingrown wench should push that anyone under 21 cannot be drafted or be forced to sign up for the draft until they are 21 , not 18 !!!!! Vote ALL Republican in Nov. so we can start to take back OUR country !!!!
