Buffalo Shooting Triggers NY Governor to Enact Stricter Gun Control
You know that Democrats never let a tragedy go to waste. They always pounce and use it to push their agenda.
Thankfully, more and more people are seeing this and growing tired of it, but it’s not happening fast enough.
Since the recent mass shooting at the grocery store in Buffalo, NY, liberals in power are doing everything they can to use it to push their agenda and New York Governor Kathy Hochul is no exception.
On Wednesday, Hochul signed executive orders to enforce further state gun control legislation in response to the mass shooting that took place the previous Saturday, which resulted in the deaths of ten people.
The executive orders that were signed by the Governor, were aimed at combating gun violence and domestic terrorism, as well as investigating social media platforms that promote violent extremism. In the course of a press conference, Hochul made the following statement: “Domestic terrorism is the most significant threat we face as a state and as a nation so we’re fighting back with a statewide approach.”
“The horrific and despicable act of terror committed by a white supremacist this past weekend in Buffalo showed that we as a country are facing an intersection of two crises: the mainstreaming of hate speech – including white nationalism, racism and white supremacy – and the easy access to military-style weapons and magazines,” Governor Hochul said in her press release.
“Today, I issued Executive Orders to devote substantial resources and focus toward combating the troubling surge in domestic terrorism by identifying radicalized individuals and tracking their threats amplified on social media, and further empower State Police to keep guns away from dangerous people. I am also issuing a referral letter to the Attorney General to investigate social media’s role in the Buffalo shooting, and am calling for the passage of several pieces of legislation that will help law enforcement get more guns off the street,” Hochul added.
NEW: We’re proposing a comprehensive plan to combat domestic terrorism, strengthen state gun laws, & investigate social media platforms promoting violent extremism.
In wake of the racist act of terror in Buffalo, New York will lead the charge to confront this epidemic head-on.

As a state with some of the strictest gun laws already, it sure doesn’t seem to be helping, does it? Maybe that’s because criminals don’t care about obeying the laws.
