Yonkers Mayoral Primary

Incumbent Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano is running in a 3-way Democrat primary tomorrow against attorney Karen Beltran and community activist Ivy Reeves.

As a general rule Westchester residents should vote for anyone but a Spano regardless of who the opposition is and this race is no exception.  During his time in the Assembly he consistently voted antigun and as Mayor he supported Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda.

Primary turnout is usually low so gun owners should make an effort to turn out and boot Spano from office.

Effect of A-7752/S-6151 on carry licenses

Now that the legislature has passed A-7752/S-6151 a likely (unintended?) consequence of this will be that in certain municipalities carry licenses will be harder to obtain.  The reason being now that premises licenses can be used for transport and range use there is less “proper cause” for a carry license.

Example of why the GOP is in the minority

Albany Republicans are spreading this info-graphic around:

Did anyone in either GOP conference think about organizing opposition to this, or any other issue including 2A, before the legislative session started 6 months ago? No. That is why they are the minority in both chambers.

Oneida County Executive primary race

Incumbent Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente will be in a three-way Republican primary next Tuesday with David Gordon and Michael Hennessy.

As to where the candidates stand on 2A:

When in doubt, vote the incumbent out.  With low turnout gun owners have an opportunity to push Picente off the cliff.

Demonstrating failure

National Gun Violence Awareness Day” was this past Saturday:

“Hundreds of Brooklynites dressed in orange marched across the Brooklyn Bridge from Cadman Plaza on Saturday in an annual demonstration against gun violence …”

Was the demonstration a success?

A 40-year-old man was fatally shot on a Harlem street corner early Monday, police said …

No.

How NRA can be effective

The Hill reports:

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) may face a primary challenge from a first-time candidate who played a key role in organizing Albany’s first sexual harassment hearing in nearly three decades …”

This is how the NRA can be effective in NYC politics: Tell members to vote for anyone but Maloney in the primary. With turnout low it won’t take much to push her off the cliff like Joe Crowley.  There is no need to get into a discussion about the other candidates and their stance on gun rights.  It’s real simple.  Does the incumbent support 2A?  No.  Vote for their opponent.
