Purely coincidental

Support Cacace for Westchester D.A.

Thanks to this letter-to-the-editor rant, Westchester gun owners know who to support in the Democrat primary for County District Attorney:

“This June, voters will turn out to the polls to decide which District Attorney candidate best reflects the values of the Westchester community. With two Democratic frontrunners—Susan Cacace and William Wagstaff—and Democrats maintaining a strong registration advantage in the county, it would be easy to assume that either candidate would share the principles of Westchester voters. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case … [Susan Cacace] chose to run for judge on the Republican and Conservative ballot lines—despite the Conservative Party’s extremist positions on gun safety … Just the other week, a major GOP donor, who defended gun owners as “New York’s Top Firearms Attorney,” held a private fundraiser for Judge Cacace’s DA campaign …”

Everytown staffer running for Assembly

Found this useful nugget of information at the Columbia Daily Spectator:

“The Columbia University Democrats hosted a New York State Assembly District 69 candidate forum on Wednesday, allowing candidates in the competitive race to share their platform with students and Columbia community members … [Melissa Rosenberg] said her platform draws upon her background as a policy analyst with the Supportive Housing Network of New York and nationwide gun violence prevention with Everytown for Gun Safety. For Rosenberg, these crises will not disappear or be remedied with incremental changes. “I think we need to see more bold changes,” Rosenberg said. “And I’d be one to advocate for that wholeheartedly.” …”

Victory in this race shall be defined as Rosenberg losing.  Any of the other candidates winning is better than her.

We can narrow it down a bit more, though:

“… [Micah Lasher], who grew up on the Upper West Side and previously served as the Director of Policy for the State of New York under Gov. Kathy Hochul, highlighted his efforts to enact gun safety laws following mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde …”

A big victory shall be defined as both Rosenberg and Lasher losing.

This is no way should be construed to mean that either of the other declared candidates are much better on gun rights. However, these two bigots have expended much personal effort to deny citizens their rights and need to lose.

2A advocates should not sit out this race which will effectively be decided in the June Democrat primary.

Bowman v. Latimer

City & State has a good story, “Who’s endorsing Jamaal Bowman and George Latimer?

CD-16 has a heavy Democrat enrollment advantage and the winner of the party primary will likely walk through the general election.

Just because both Bowman and Latimer stink on 2A does not mean there isn’t opportunity to influence the election and make our voices heard.

These are the choices:

  • Support Latimer. If he wins he has to give up the Westchester County Executive seat giving us a roll of the dice on the open seat.
  • Support Bowman. Make an example out of Latimer for bringing up gun control before an election.

I believe the former is the better course of action, but I could get behind the later.

Sitting at home and doing nothing is not an option. If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.
