NY Gov Cuomo: Raising Age, Banning Bump Stocks ‘Like Trying to Fight a Forest Fire with a Garden Hose’

IAN HANCHETT

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) argued that raising the age limit to purchase firearms and banning bump stocks “are incremental measures, at best. It’s like trying to fight a forest fire with a garden hose.”

Cuomo said, “I hope the Florida massacre spurs real action, but they’re setting the bar so low that I think it’s a foolish expectation. Raising the age limit from 18 to 21, bump stocks, these are incremental measures, at best. It’s like trying to fight a forest fire with a garden hose. And they’re going to fight now whether or not they can even get that done. So, I’m not — call me a cynic, but I don’t believe the federal government is going to take any meaningful action. I believe the national electeds are afraid of this issue.”
