New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) just codified the guilty until innocent doctrine in New York with new gun confiscation legislation. The law provides that “family members, school administrators, and law enforcement officials can seek to get guns confiscated from people deemed by courts to be an ‘extreme risk’ to themselves or others.” This so-called “Red Flag Bill” was praised by Nancy Pelosi-who was in attendance-as “leading the way.” The law could serve as a template for Pelosi’s House as a part of a broader Democratic agenda to enact gun control nationally.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed gun confiscation into law for New York on Monday.
The law takes effect 180 days from the date of signing.
Buffalo News reports that the law allows that “family members, school administrators and law enforcement officials can seek to get guns confiscated from people deemed by courts to be an ‘extreme risk’ to themselves or others.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) praised Cuomo and New York lawmakers for putting the confiscatory law into place:
American families deserve to see bold action to prevent gun violence. Thanks to @NYGovCuomo & the New York State Legislature for leading the way by passing the Red Flag Bill & providing an example of the commonsense solutions that will save lives! https://t.co/4HcMLI1h3D
