Yet another local member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns has been arrested:

Former Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan (D) is facing harassment charges after a fight in a town of Barker bar last week … Troopers said Ryan got into an argument over politics with pro-gas drilling activist Victor Furman, from Chenango Forks. Ryan allegedly pushed Furman with both hands in the chest and knocked him over multiple bar stools onto the ground.

I spoke with one of our members from Long Island who works for another non-gun special interest who informed me that he interviewed candidates for his organization and they all told him that as they’re going door to door the hot button issues people are talking about, aside from taxes, are common core and the SAFE Act.

This directly contradicts media reports that guns are not an issue downstate and reinforces the election results from last year’s Westchester and Nassau County Executive’s races.

Back in April Alex Crohn took credit for authoring the SAFE bill.  Now, Oliver Koppell says he did it:

“… The debate continued with Senator Klein and candidate Koppell upgrading themselves on their accomplishments over their opponent, with candidate Koppell saying that he had drafted up the original Safe Act legislation, not Senator Klein …”

Alabama’s news media is more honest than New York’s.
