State representatives cheated constituents

Regarding the actions of the New York State Legislature and governor during the first two days of the current session: The people of New York have been ill-served and, indeed, cheated. Hiding in a dark room, our indignant governor and self-appointed legislating elites crafted a plan and rammed it through the two legislative bodies while ignoring the rules for this process.

We, the people, on either side of the issue, were cheated by our elected representatives. Those who voted for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s gun legislation are guilty of the above, as well as those who participated with a no vote and did nothing to stop this atrocity. Whether you are for or against further restrictions on your rights, your Assembly and Senate representatives have cheated you again.
