Everytown (Mike Bloomberg) has made a couple of endorsements for the August 23 primary elections.
In the open seat CD-3 Democrat primary they endorsed Melanie D’Arrigo who they list as a Moms volunteer and who looks like a poster-child Karen. While not endorsed, Nassau Co. Legislator John Lafazan has made gun control a signature issue of his campaign while one of Robert Zimmerman’s top priorities is to “combat gun violence.” Jon Kaiman proudly lists himself as a “gunsense candidate” and Reema Rasool pledges that, if elected, she “will aim to pass common-sense gun safety laws to keep our schools, places of worship, and communities safe.” All the choices stink, but I believe the worst two are D’Arrigo and Lazafan.
In the SD-21 Democrat primary they endorsed Kaegan Mays-Williams who they also list as a Moms volunteer. She is challenging incumbent Kevin Parker who is also antigun and is a violent thug. The third choice is David Alexis who “has committed to governing with gun sense as a priority.” He is arguably the least offensive only because he has not voted on the issue and has not been endorsed by any gun control group.
Attorney General Tish James intends to defend New York’s public nuisance law, A-6762B/S-7196, in a lawsuit brought against Glock for a subway shooting back in April.
There’s no press release from her office, just this story at Courthouse News Service.
Her complaint contains this nugget of stupidity on page 24:
“… “Upon information and belief, in or around 1990, “the Glock began to appear in the hands of police officers in Law and Order and other police procedural shows. It was also used by Bruce Willis in the movie Die Hard 2. Willis’ character even bragged about the advantages of using a Glock…”[He] introduced the gun as a character to people who don’t know anything about guns,” says Barrett …”
That’s the fictional porcelain Glock 7. She actually put that into a lawsuit.
The House passed their so-called “assault weapons ban” by a vote of 217-213.
The two Republicans who put it over the top were Chris Jacobs and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania. Jacobs’ vote being a middle finger to his constituents after having to end his re-election campaign specifically because of this issue.
