Andrew Cuomo wants to give school authorities the power to disarm the law abiding
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Teachers and school administrators would be able to ask a judge to remove guns from the homes of troubled students under a first-of-its-kind proposal announced Tuesday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The Democratic governor acknowledged his proposal will run into political opposition from Republicans, including those that control the state Senate. But he said it’s a commonsense way to prevent school shootings and get help to students at risk of harming themselves or others. He said it was a far more effective way of protecting students than arming teachers.
“This is a sensible, positive, helpful alternative,” he said. “Many times the teacher knows this an issue.”
Under the measure, teachers and school administrators would have legal standing to petition a court to remove any firearms from the homes of students considered a threat to themselves or others. New York would be the first state in the nation with such a law if the bill passes.
Sure, sure no way an anti-gun teacher or administrator would abuse this right? To be sure this is far more about back door confiscation that anything else
