Latimer attempts to insert gun control into primary

It’s a safe bet these two things are related.

Item #1, “GOP urges voters to support Rob Astorino in the Reform Party primary“:

“… In advance of the minor Reform Party Sept. 12 primary, the state Republican committee paid for mailers sent out to registered voters unaffiliated with a specific party encouraging them to write in the name of [Rob] Astorino, who is also running unopposed on the Republican ticket. State Sen. George Latimer, a Democrat and the Reform Party executive committee’s choice for county executive, accused Astorino of “using the Republican state party in an embarrassing attempt to steal this ballot line and do a hostile takeover of the Reform Party.” …”

Item #2, “Westchester County Executive Hopeful Takes Aim At Controversial Gun Show“:

“… “To own a gun is perfectly legal, but it’s not something I think the county should be involved in helping to promote,” State Sen. George Latimer (D) said. Latimer is running for Westchester County Executive, and pointed to Nazi literature, books on Hitler, and confederate flag mementos at the last gun show as reasons why the promoter ‘Northeast Gun Shows’ should not be allowed to hold another event at the county center this January … Astorino said 8,000 people attended in January, lines have traditionally been out the door, and the latest gun show earned tax payers $50,000, so he won’t stop it because of some controversial memorabilia. “These are historical in nature, these are not propaganda to join the Nazis and the KKK, this is about World War II, the same books are in high school libraries,” he said …”

This has nothing to do with guns.  Latimer is following the current Democrat playbook of accusing Republicans of being Nazis in an attempt to gin up the kook-left snowflakes and get them to turn out and vote for him on election day.
