NY Dems Latest Anti-gun Idea: Ban Shooting Sports From Schools

When will NY Democrats give up their armed security at their places of government business?

(Daily Caller) New York Democrat Linda Rosenthal introduced legislation to ban shooting sports from New York schools Friday, claiming the sports “spread gun culture.”

If the legislation is passed, high school shooting teams, including air rifle and even archery clubs, would be disbanded, Time magazine reported on Thursday. These programs can lead to violence, Rosenthal claimed, citing the Parkland shooter’s involvement in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) program before executing his mass killing.

“Schools should not be supporting the spread of gun culture in society,” Rosenthal told reporters. “If parents want their children to have shooting instruction, there are opportunities that have nothing to do with the school.”

Interestingly, if parents object to their children receiving sexual instruction on things like oral, anal, and same gender sex, the schools will shame them. If parents object to the gender confused using the bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms of their children, the school will tell them to pound sand. Unsurprisingly, Rosenthal represents a part of Manhattan, so, she’s probably not familiar with the outdoors activities in a goodly chunk of the state of New York.

She should try taking a stroll through the district she represents, which encompasses the Upper West Side and Hell’s Kitchen, in the wee hours of the morning, and see the real “gun culture” in the Democratic Party run areas, versus how safe she’d be in the more suburban/rural areas.

Also, why does she hate female empowerment, as we switch to the TIme Magazine article

Air riflery is currently the smallest varsity sport in New York state, with 28 teams statewide and 266 participants last year. It has also emerged as a very female-dominated sport, with girls winning 19 of the last 31 state individual air rifle championships.

This small sport led to Jillian Zakrzeski gaining a spot in the Junior Olympics. Rosenthal wants to take these chances away from women. And, yes, it does go after archery clubs, because there’s lots of gun crime being committed with bows and arrows.


The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit Friday against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s financial regulatory bureau for what it labeled a “blacklisting campaign” aimed at the gun advocacy group.

According to NRA attorney William A. Brewer III, Cuomo and the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) attempted to impede the association’s right to “speak freely about gun-related issues and defend the Second Amendment.”

People like Cuomo may not like Other People having firearms for protection, but, we still have a Constitution, and so does the state of NY.
