Latimer floated for Governor

Some rumor-mongering at the Times Union:

“… A recent Times Union story about who might run for governor in 2022 included many possible entrants for the Democratic nomination. One name not included: Westchester County Executive George Latimer. Former state Sen. Terry Gipson, a Democrat who served in the Senate with Latimer, wrote in to say that Latimer should definitely be considered … Gipson, who has been encouraging Latimer to run for governor, noted Westchester County under Latimer passed several progressive measures before state government eventually acted on them …”

Latimer has a proven antigun record in the state legislature and in Westchester County.

That being said, the best opportunity for 2A activism may be during a Democrat primary and in that case it would be to push aside an even worse candidate as opposed to supporting a pro-gun one. That is the reality of gun politics in New York. Sitting by and doing nothing is not an option.
