Cuomo: Let's Prevent Civil Rights Violations While Violating Civil Rights

That's apparently New York Governor Cuomo's plan:

The Detroit Mews: New York Gov. Cuomo to propose assault weapon ban

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will take his sky-high popularity into his third year with an agenda that includes a ban on assault weapons in the aftermath of last month's school massacre in Connecticut and the killing of two firefighters in the western part of the state on Christmas Eve.


Cuomo and the Democrat-led Assembly are pushing for bans on all assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. New York already has some of the nation's strictest gun laws, but calls have grown louder to crack down on military-style assault rifles.


Cuomo's other priorities will include his effort to legalize casinos off Indian land and another to restrict the New York City Police Department's stop-and-frisk procedures that critics say impinge on civil rights.

I'm quite sure the neither Governor Cuomo nor the author of the piece caught the irony.
