Cuomo’s race to lose

With Gov. Paterson giving up on running for a full term, the governorship is pretty much Andrew Cuomo’s to lose short of yet another scandal that would keep him out of the race.  Nobody is paying much attention to Rick Lazio.  Cuomo’s only real worry right now is Steve Levy who doesn’t seem to want to go away.

Legislative Report #19

Legislative Report #19 is now available for download.  I’m waiting for a modified version of the renewable license proposal to be introduced.  Amy Paulin’s office had an idea the DMV could process them.

Trying to remain relevant

Fresh off their defeat with the new federal law allowing guns in national parks, two antigun organizations are merging in an attempt to remain relevant: Freedom States Alliance and States United to Prevent Gun Violence.  It looks as if FSA was just folded into SUPGV, much like when the Million Moms were absorbed by the Brady Campaign.  New Yorkers Against Gun Violence is the state affiliate of SUPGV.

Paterson announces election campaign

Gov. Paterson has formally announced his election campaign.  He is trying to portray himself as an outsider.  Given that he has been part of the Albany machine for 25 years I don’t see this as a viable campaign strategy.

News of the day

Assemblyman Greg Ball is reaching out to gun owners for a tax day revolt.  Good for him.

The Brady Campaign put out their annual state ratings and gave New York a 50 out of 100.  They used to give us a B.  It’s unclear if we are moving up or down in their rankings.

We haven’t heard the last of Doug Hoffman in CD-23.

Pro-gun article from the SUNY Buffalo student newspaper, “Don’t bring a notebook to a gunfight.”  Self-defense on campus?  What a concept.

Don’t buy Yellow Tail wine.  They support animal rights groups.

Make up your mind already

Andrew Cuomo needs to make up his mind on whether or not he’s going to run for Governor this fall.  Kathleen Rice and Eric Schneiderman have stopped just short of formally announcing their intentions to run for D.A.  If Schneiderman does run for D.A. he will have to give up his Senate seat and getting him out of there would be a good thing as he is the prime sponsor of much of the antigun crap in the upper house.
