I called your repoter, asked for some names to back up the statement, was given one name, Ed Koch, former NYC mayor. I researched this and found Ed Koch in a little video on an ultraconservative Website talking about gun control and stating that he would like to see all guns banned.
So that’s one politician, who currently does not hold office. Yes, Sen. Feinstein and Gov. Cuomo dislike guns pretty much, but neither is advocating banning all guns or abolishing the Second Amendment.
Your reporter’s printed statement is more than exaggeration or misinformation; it is hogwash.
