As a state with an overwhelming demand for the right to murder the unborn, New York's crackdown on gun rights is laughable. Democrat politicians preach violence, blame guns for the problems tearing our society apart, and call for the termination of the Second Amendment -- all while turning a blind eye to the inherent violence of ripping a fetus from the womb and tearing it to pieces.
After making its way through state legislature, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the highly detestable Reproductive Health Act (RHA) into law. Under RHA, abortions are legal until 24 weeks of gestation -- at which point, a majority of babies are able to survive outside the womb with well-orchestrated care.
But, the legislation also provides room for abortions after this 24-week period, when a baby would have an excellent chance at survival. The broadness of this "health" exception has been a sticking point for pro-life advocates.
New York Right To Life contends that the legislation makes it possible to abort a baby for any reason, including “age, economic, social and emotional factors, rather than the biological definition of ‘health’ that normally comes to mind.”
Life News reports further that RHA also introduced a new definition for the word "person." The pro-abortionist definition is now “a human being who has been born and is alive."
Under RHA, abortion is named a "fundamental right," which the state cannot "deny, regulate or restrict."
As many others have surmised, this language all but ensures that abortions can be carried out at any stage of pregnancy, up until the moment of birth. And Democrats around the country are celebrating this as a victory.
While New York hasn't completely stripped citizens of their Second Amendment rights, the deep blue state has gone to extreme lengths to restrict gun rights and is known for having some of the toughest gun laws in the country. As Guns To Carry reports:
The New York state gun laws are regarded as very restrictive and operate on a “May Issue” policy at the local county level. This means that the issuance of a pistol license is entirely up to the issuing officer. As a rough rule, the higher the population of a county the more restrictive the gun laws become with New York City being the most restrictive.
While it may be a bit easier in more rural areas of the state, getting a pistol permit can still take six months or longer. The climate in New York is not gun-friendly, to say the least.
The Left is especially prone to preying upon school shootings and similar tragedies, using them as propaganda to fill their anti-American agenda. There is a great bit of irony in liberal fear-mongering over a constitutional right that's been in place for centuries and the party's role in promoting and carrying out millions of abortions. It is impossible to rationally believe that violence and death caused by guns is bad, while also believing that death by way of abortion is "good."
Unless the left-wing's agenda is a bit of a Trojan horse: The Left presents abortion as a medical necessity for moral good and equality, and gun control as a means to "advance" society and protect people from danger. But the truth is that the Second Amendment was designed to protect us from Big Government -- not from each other. And as such, a government that wishes to disarm its people probably shouldn't be trusted.
In the same purview, abortion is not actually a "good" thing for women; it's merely a tool of the deranged Left to gain power and influence over women.
