There is a Republican gubernatorial primary next Tuesday. Two of the candidates have public records on 2A, two do not. This is how they break down on the issues:

Based upon their record, both Astorino and Zeldin can be labeled as pro-gun.  However, Astorino demonstrated a willingness to stand up for gun rights when it was not necessarily politically advantageous for him to do so.  That makes him the best choice for 2A activists.  Republicans should vote for Astorino in the June 28 primary.
