The headline says it all, “Gov. Cuomo wins re-election but fails to get a mandate.”

While Rob Astorino lost,  much of that can be attributed to the lack of support by the GOP establishment many of whom were openly campaigning for Cuomo’s re-election.  Taken in total, gun control was a loser of an issue all across the state.  Here is the breakdown.

On Long Island:

In the Hudson Valley:

In the Capital District:

In the North Country:

In Central NY:

In Western NY:

I found one of NRA’s Cuomo ads running on TownHall.com.  Below is a screen grab.  Clicking on it takes you to www.nrapvf.org/defeatcuomo.

Senator Marty Golden is one of the chicken-shit RINOs who voted for the SAFE Act.

So, what does New Yorkers Against Gun Violence do to repay him?  They endorse his opponent:

“… New Yorkers Against Gun Violence announced today its endorsement of James Kemmerer for New York State Senate (District 22).  Leah Gunn Barrett, NYAGV Executive Director, said, “We are proud to endorse James Kemmerer for State Senate. James will work for common sense approaches to protect New Yorkers from gun violence such as smart gun technology and a Child Access Prevention Law to keep our kids safe from guns in the home. He will also work to pass microstamping, “DNA for guns,” that will help law enforcement solve gun crimes.”  Barrett added, “Like us, James Kemmerer knows that smart gun laws save lives which is why New York has the fourth lowest gun death rate in the nation. We look forward to working with him in the upcoming legislative session to continue the tremendous progress our state has made to protect New Yorkers from the preventable scourge of gun violence.” …”

This isn’t the first time they have done this to Republican Senators who supported their agenda either.  Marty, like the others, were too arrogant and stupid to learn from it.

A little more info:

“… State Board of Elections records show the NRA’s political action committee spent $104,618 earlier this week on the ads, though the filing doesn’t include details about when are where those ads will run …”

I have not seen any such ads.

I did get an orange postcard in today’s mail.
