Gov. Cuomo no Jefferson

I was very surprised to find out I am an extremist. Gov. Andrew Cuomo seems to feel that because I believe that framers of the Constitution knew what they were doing and wanted to ensure certain rights were guaranteed to the citizens of this country, I am an extremist.

I submit that the extremist is the governor who seems to think his views are the only correct ones. Violence will not be ended by passing unenforceable laws that restrict the rights of honest citizens. I suspect that Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, etc., who fought a long bloody war to obtain these freedoms, would strongly disagree with Gov. Cuomo’s position.

To borrow a phrase: Gov. Cuomo, sir, you are no Thomas Jefferson.
