AWFL: Affluent White Female Liberal
You know exactly the type of person I’m referring to.

Anne: Do you have numbers to show that it’s the concealed carry permit holders that are committing crimes?
Hochul: I don’t need to have numbers. I don’t need to have a data point to say this. I know that I have a responsibility for this state to have sensible gun safety laws. pic.twitter.com/NiCp7POO88

Of course she doesn’t know how many New York gun permit holders have committed gun crimes.
She doesn’t know and doesn’t care about the statistics from Florida and other states about how law abiding licensed concealed carry permit holders actually are.
What she has is feelings.
She feels unsafe at the idea that other people might be carrying guns around her that she doesn’t know about.
She feels unsafe with licensed gun owners carrying on the subway.
Never mind the rate of subway pushings and other homicides in the subway in the last few years.
Disregard actual dangers from criminals, junkies, and vagrants that have be released or not charged for reasons of equity, her perceived danger from a guy with a CCW permit looms large in her mind.
So she will deny you your rights. Rights affirmed by the Supreme Court just a few days ago.
Her feelings are more important than your rights and don’t you forget it.
This is the AWFL way of life.
It was AWFLs who maintained lockdowns and masking long after they were all proven to br useless.
It was AWFLs who keep the schools closed.
It was AWFLs who rated out neighbors and businesses for being open.
It was AWFLs who lit candles to St. Fauci.
These people have no capacity for rational analysis or risk assessment.
They have privileged lives and have strong feelings about things they don’t understand and will use those feelings to crush you.
Governor Hochul maintained the lockdowns and COVID restrictions long after there was a need but she was afraid so you had to lose your rights.
Now her feelings are overruling a Supreme Court decision and will be denied the rights they acknowledged.
AWFL governor governs AWFLly.
