Breitbart News contacted New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D), visited Kathy Hochul’s office Thursday in an effort to determine if she would arm the men who defend her with guns the same as she forces average Americans to disarm all around New York.
Her office couldn’t say if Hochul would be giving up the guns and her men with good intentions.
The person we talked to indicated that there has not been a policy statement yet.
Breitbart News reported on September 1, that Hochul had tweeted details about the new state gun control laws and claimed that guns don’t stop bad people from being armed.
FOX News quoted Hochul saying, “This whole concept that a good guy with a gun will stop the bad guys with a gun, it doesn’t hold up. This theory doesn’t hold up, and the data supports it. .”
On August 31 Hochul tweeted the many locations in which law-abiding citizens will be prohibited from being armed for self-defense:
Keeping New Yorkers safe is my top priority.
Starting tomorrow concealed weapons won’t be allowed in subways or bars and other sensitive areas. pic.twitter.com/RKExUOBlrT

But Hochul’s office couldn’t say if the Governor would retain the gun-wielding men who protect her every day.
Breitbart news suggested that Hochul’s decision to keep armed protection for her, even though she prohibited law-abiding Americans from having self-defense weapons, may give the impression of lowering the value of American lives. After making this point, we were transferred to Hochul’s press office and our voicemail was answered.
