Precision Rifle Series

New shooting league has formed:

New York Precision, Inc. was formed to bring @PRS series matches to N.Y.  We will be hosting several 1-Day Club Matches in 2018, and a full match in 2019.

They will be hosting their first matches at the Olean Rod & Gun Club with dates TBA.

Election aftermath

Gun owners did not do well in yesterday’s election.  Moving from Long Island, here are the results:

Even before the election, Democrats made it known they would make a push for more gun control in Albany when the legislature returns to sessions in January:

“… Will gun control supplant abortion rights as a wedge issue in 2018? It may, at least in the state Senate … Now Senate Democrats, in the wake of recent mass shootings, including Sunday’s murder of 26 people in Sutherland Springs, Texas, are poised to launch a push for tougher gun laws with January’s legislative session …”

Of course they are.

“… Still, if history is a predictor, Senate Republicans will likely reject tougher gun control laws just as they have with abortion rights …”

Don’t count on that. If Astorino won, we’d be in a better position.

Sheriff Howard ahead in polls

Erie County Sheriff Tim Howard has been a vocal critic of the SAFE Act since it’s inception.

He’s up for re-election this year and I’ve been searching for polling data to see how he’s doing.  Erie has an almost 2-1 Democrat enrollment advantage.  Only thing I could find was this Buffalo News article on his opponent:

“… Even though [Bernard Tolbert] should compete this year as a favorite in heavily Democratic Erie County, most polls show him trailing — though far from out of it …”

Good.  We need to keep Howard around.

Briley chokes

I’m endorsing Briley chokes.  They helped me win three birds at the Tri-Village Rod & Gun Club’s Turkey Shoot today.

Tioga Co. supports H.R. 3576

The Tioga Co. legislature made their opinion known on 2A:

“… At the Sept. 12 session of the Tioga County Legislature, members unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to pass the Second Amendment Guarantee Act (SAGA). The legislation, H.R. 3576 (SAGA), was proposed by Congressman Chris Collins (R-NY-27) and introduced into the House of Representatives in July of this year. In similar fashion as Tioga County, the Niagara County and Orleans County Legislatures in New York also passed resolutions in September …”

Good for them.

H.R.3576 isn’t exactly setting Congress on fire. It has only 14 co-sponsors and no Senate companion.

Still resolutions like this do have a purpose. It’s an eye-poke to Governor Cuomo and a reminder how much political clout passing his SAFE Act cost him.

Dick move, Joel

Joel Tyner is an antigun county legislator from northern Dutchess.  He’s also batshit nuts.  He gave these out on Halloween:

Joel Tyner's Halloween Handout

I’d have egged his house.

 

Vance tries to link reciprocity to terrorism

Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance attempts to exploit the terrorist attack in an effort to derail federal reciprocity. The topic comes up at the 7:12 mark:

16%

A new poll shows incumbent Rob Astorino in a statistical tie with challenger George Latimer.

Of note is this finding:

“… 16% said the most important issue is gun shows at the Westchester County Center …”

Since gun control advocates have never been able to turn out the vote I am going to assume this is 2A people upset at Latimer’s efforts to prohibit them.

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right

As expected, the Clown Council passed into law Int 1724-2017:

“… The City Council voted Tuesday to require the NYPD to give out warnings to people applying for gun licenses and permits about the risks of firearm ownership, including higher suicide and accident rates … [Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito] said the goal is to “do to firearm ownership what cigarette warnings have done to tobacco consumption, by igniting a national movement to educate the public.” …”

If only they acted sooner, maybe this would have deterred Sayfullo Saipov.

While this was going on, the jokers at the Rochester City Council came out in opposition to reciprocity:

“Rochester City Councilmembers have issued a formal proclamation opposing legislation in Congress that would seek to establish Concealed Carry Reciprocity. Councilmember Molly Clifford said the law would give states less control over guns … “We certainly support legal gun ownership, but we think that it is important to take whatever steps we can to make sure that we have common sense gun regulations here in New York.” …”

If our laws are “common sense”, why are 42 states right-to-carry?
