The Pine Tree Rifle Club in Johnstown is one of my favorites because these guys do stuff and are not afraid to invite politicos to the club.
More clubs need to do this. The excuse I most often is hear is that doing so would jeopardize their tax status. Nonsense.
Governor Cuomo is running his anti-NRA advertisement on WABC-TV during the 5 o’clock newscast.
He has 36+ million dollars in his campaign account, but still it cannot be cheap running ads during prime-time in the NYC market.
Saw this in my Twitter feed:
This is the reason Planned Parenthood gets taken seriously in Albany and NRA does not. When someone goes against PP’s agenda, they pull their support. NRA does not.
Governor Cuomo is running a new ad touting his latest pissing contest with the NRA:
What Cuomo said at 0:13 is very instructive for those unaware of Albany politics. He makes it clear he has no respect for his opposition, will get in their face and do whatever it takes to humiliate and defeat them.
There is only one way to respond to this: Do the exact same thing back at the Governor.
Back in May I suggested NRA tell members to Vote for the Homo, Not the Cuomo in the Democrat primary. Cynthia Nixon is already driving Cuomo nuts and the possibility of tens of thousands of NRA members voting against him in a primary where turnout is already expected to be low would force him to spend a lot of time and money defending himself and further weaken his standing on the national level. It is the only things guys like Cuomo understand.
Following up his Dutchess kick-off, I attended Will Truitt’s Columbia County Campaign Kick-Off:
I cannot stress how important it is gun owners, both as individuals and as representatives of clubs/federations, attend these events and yes, pay for those which are fundraisers like this one was.
As we get closer to election time there will be lots of campaign events all over the state. I recommend those in Orange County attend Colin Schmitt’s Campaign HQ Grand Opening on the 26th.
