Pilip soft on gun rights

Tom Suozzi has been touting his antigun credentials in his bid to return to office in this week’s special election.

Mazi Pilip doesn’t appear much better:

“… On Thursday, Suozzi sought to put the focus of the campaign on gun safety, an issue that has come up repeatedly in candidate interviews. He cast Pilip’s stated support for a machine gun ban as an attempt to hoodwink Long Island and Queens voters into thinking she supports a revival of the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 … “Mazi is a firm believer in the right to bear arms,” said the statement. “She believes law-abiding citizens should have a route to have access to guns, but not automatic assault weapons.” …”

Plus:

“… Democrats are attempting to flip the seat after disgraced Republican George Santos was expelled last year. The suburban district is seen as a bellwether for what’s to come in November. Suozzi said he’s “more conservative than 90% of the Democrats,” while Pilip, a registered Democrat who is running as a Republican, appeared to adopt Democratic talking points on abortion and guns …”
