During Friday’s broadcast of “Eric Bolling The Balance” on Newsmax TV, New York gubernatorial candidate and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) opposed New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s (D ) that she doesn’t “need to have numbers” to justify gun control proposals with her reluctance to repeal cashless bail due to a lack of data to justify repealing the cashless deposit.
After watching a clip of Hochul responding to a question about whether she has any data to show concealed carry permit holders are committing crimes by saying, “I don’t need to have numbers. I don’t need to – I don’t need to have a data point to point to say this is fine – all I know is that I have a responsibility to the people of this state to have sensible gun safety laws. Zeldin said, “Well, it’s NRA-endorsed Congresswoman Kathy Hochul who doesn’t need the facts to take away the rights of law-abiding New Yorkers who want to carry a gun in only to defend herself. And when asked about the need… for a repeal of cashless bail, her response was, we can’t do it, we need data. She is everywhere.
