RUSH: Let's go to Andrew Cuomo sound bites. Andrew, the son of Mario "The Pious," is the governor of New York. He gave his state of the state speech yesterday in Albany. We got three sound bites. This was like a Fidel Castro speech. I mean, it just went on and on and on, and he was speaking when this show was on yesterday, but he didn't get any of the good stuff until after this show ended. We have three examples.
CUOMO: (shouting) We respect hunters and sportsmen! This is not taking away people's guns! I own a gun! I own a Remington shotgun! I've hunted! I've shot! That's not what this is about. It is about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles!
CUOMO: That's what this is aboooout!
RUSH: Oh! Oh! Okay. That's what it's about, "ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles"? That's not what was used at Sandy Hook, though, was it? The Bushmaster's not a high-capacity assault rifle. That's a single shot, isn't it? I could be mistaken. I'll have to double-check. But, anyway, see? It's not about taking away your guns. He loves hunters. He loves "spawtsmen." He owns a gun. He's got a Remington shotgun! He's hunted; he's shot. "That's not what this about. It's about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles!"
CUOMO: (shouting) I know that the issue of gun control is hard! I know it's political; I know it's controversial! But we are proposing today common sense measures. And I say to you, "Forget the extremists! It's simple: No one hunts with an assault rifle!"
CUOMO: (screeching louder) No one needs ten bullets to kill a deeeeeeer, and too many innocent people have died already!
CUOMO: END THE MADNESS NOOOOOW!
RUSH: Holy smokes, it sounds like Hillary Clinton! Holy cow. (impression) "No one needs ten bullets to kill a deeeeeeer!" That's amazing. These people actually want you to think that the Second Amendment is all about hunting, and you hunters? They don't want to take your guns away from you. The Second Amendment's not about hunting!
How many bullets are in the clips of Andrew Cuomo's security team, I wonder?
Here's the next sound bite...
CUOMO: (screeching) Pass safe, reasonable gun control in the state of New York!
CUOMO: Make this state safer! Save liiiiiives! Set 'em... an example for the rest of the nation! Let them look at New York and say, "This is what you can dooo, and this is what you should doooo." This is New York, the progressive capital! You show them how we lead!
CUOMO: We can doooo it! We've done it before! We can do it agaaaain!
RUSH: That's the big flourish finale from Andrew "The Pious" all about getting rid of ten bullets to kill a deer, all about getting rid of "high-capacity assault rifles." (interruption) We've done it before? Well, no, no. He didn't mean on guns. When he said (impression), "We've done it befaw, and we can do it again," he's talking about advancing liberalism. That's when he said, "This is New Yawk, duh progressive capital!"
"Progressive" is as in progressivism and liberalism.
So, "We'll show 'em how to lead! We can do it! We've done it befaw." He means we've advanced liberalism, which he's right about. They've done that. New York has shown the way.
