New York Outlaws Guns on Campus for Everyone but Security and Law Enforcement

New York Outlaws Guns on Campus for Everyone but Security and Law Enforcement

“These measures will help slow the proliferation of guns by keeping unneeded firearms out of school zones”

This stands in direct contrast to other states which have been increasing campus carry rights in recent years.

Campus Reform reports:

New York outlaws only exception allowing students, profs to carry on campus

New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill making it a crime for universities to authorize anyone except law enforcement or security personnel from carrying firearms on campus.

Bill S101A, which “limits educational institutions ability to authorize the possession of a weapon on school grounds [sic],” is effective immediately, The Democrat & Chronicle reported.

“The answer to the gun violence epidemic plaguing this country has never been and never will be more guns, and today we’re expanding New York’s nation-leading gun safety laws to further protect our children,” Cuomo said following the bill’s signing. “These measures will help slow the proliferation of guns by keeping unneeded firearms out of school zones and helping to ensure unwanted or illegal guns don’t fall into dangerous hands.”

New York State law already barred the carry of firearms on campus without written authorization from school administrators. This new law prohibits schools from being able to authorize anyone whose primary responsibility is not security from carrying firearms.

“No educational institution shall issue written authorization to carry a firearm to any person who is not primarily employed as a school resource officer, law enforcement officer, or security guard,” the law mandates.

“A person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon on school grounds when he or she knowingly has in his or her possession a rifle, shotgun, or firearm in or upon a building or grounds, used for educational purposes, of any school, college, or university,” the law reads.

Might as well hang a “welcome” sign for the next insane person looking for an easy target.

?‍♂️ Same old enabling response we are familiar with from the “Let’s Do Something” crowd. Oh, a law will stop the madman. No, it will stop people who obey laws. If one were cynical, one might think these laws are meant to encourage more such shootings to arouse support for fewer individual freedom and more government authority. And, to be clear to the low information Left, I’m talking about the degrading of freedom of the innocent citizens, not the criminals.

    The Left rejects empiricism, the only way they can justify their “truth.”

    Of course it’s to seize more rights from the citizens to give to the government but, even more so, it’s to purposely allow those willing to commit mass shootings the freedom to do so without having to worry about someone shooting back. The government has no problem spending whatever amount of tax payer money is necessary on armed security & other methods to protect courthouses, state & federal buildings & anyplace where members of Congress are going to be working. Their children all attend private schools with security as well. However, your children are expendable & they are willing to expend as much innocent blood as necessary to advance their agenda of gun confiscation.
    If you are more than willing to run on a platform where abortion is a fundamental “right” while giving the largest provider of taking the most innocent lives & blood among us millions of tax payer dollars as well, there is no blood too precious for them to not spend for what they want. They pattern themselves as the socialists throughout history have always acted & are becoming more brazen in being willing to claim the mantle publicly where they used to try to hide it.
    Pelosi doesn’t run the House & that was proven recently when she was willing to break House rules, supported by every democrat in there, to publicly defend & now completely claim as their own 4 of those socialist democrats who proudly declare themselves to be even as they threaten to primary any democrat they feel doesn’t support their socialism. They even called Pelosi herself their favorite go-to rebuke of calling her a racist because anyone who disagrees with them can’t be doing so because of policy differences but only because they are protected “women of color”. That means they can never be wrong, ever, and the democrats just bowed to that because they fear these women of color & the primary challengers they will support against them. The democrat “old guard” finally created the monster that now controls the creator like Frankenstein & his monster who was too strong for him to control.
    We are in a battle for this nation & I grow more & more doubtful that we can avoid a second civil war only this time the “South” has a large industrial base to be able to defeat the North where they can’t even control the violence in their rat infested cities.

Stand by for mass shootings at NY schools in the not too distant future.

Umm, okay. And what’s Cuomo going to do about stabbings? Ban all knives on campuses as well?

What an idiot.

Great idea! Let’s pattern it after the successful results of Chicago. Make the students easier targets. After all, one good way to make an attacker’s aim worse is to return fire.
