Remember when ...

... so called "progressives" yammered that the "gun confiscation" complaints of pro-2nd Amendment types were "paranoid delusion?" Uh huh: “Confiscation could be an option.”

In a radio interview on Thursday with Albany’s WGDJ-AM, New York governor Andrew Cuomo said that he plans to work with state legislators next month to submit a proposal for new gun-control laws; in particular, Cuomo said, “our focus is assault weapons,” because current state laws regulating the weapons “have more holes that Swiss cheese.”

“I don’t think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, ‘I need an assault weapon to go hunting,’” he said.

Cuomo continued, “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.”

Elsewhere, Chicago War Zone Mayor and former Boss Obama official Rahm Emanuel thinks his power extends beyond his city's war zone's boundaries:

Sneed is told that Mayor Rahm Emanuel isn’t waiting for federal or state governments to act on gun control.

◆ Translation: The mayor, who supports a ban on assault weapons, is planning a crackdown on suburban gun shops that sell to “straw purchasers” — people who buy guns for those who can’t legally own them — and it could include police stings on suburban gun shops.

◆ To wit: Although there are no gun shops in Chicago, a top mayoral source tells Sneed that Rahm has ordered Police Supt. Garry McCarthy and the city corporation counsel’s office to begin using the “city’s own authority” to stem such gun sales by shops outside the city.

But again, these must just be ... gun nut "paranoid fantasies."
