Passing more laws won’t help New York

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State was very well-written. All it shows is that the governor has a good speech writer. If he gets a gun-control measure passed in this short period of time, it shows that it’s all smoke and mirrors for votes. We all have to realize these people are politicians, vote getters. They do not represent us. It’s an ego ride. This is not Hollywood, so lights, camera, action – let’s help New York prosper, not push people away with more laws and rhetoric.
