In an interview with radio station WGDJ Governor Andrew Cuomo stated today that he has started new negotiations with the legislature regarding gun controls.

According to the New York Times: In the interview, Mr. Cuomo did not offer specifics about the measures he might propose, but, while discussing assault weapons, he said: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

The idea that the government could come into a home and confiscate the owner’s gun is very frightening. Isn’t this what the Second Amendment was all about?
