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.
We haven’t heard the last of Doug Hoffman in CD-23.
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.
The guy behind the so-called gun buybacks in Albany is not happy we criticized the validity of the program. Pastor Charlie sent out a press release defending it and outlined his plan to take the program to the next level:
“… The Albany Gun Buyback not only has shown results, but has recently received approval to allow inmates in Sullivan Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison, to run the first ever inmate-run gun buyback program. This program will be run by inmates and the money the collect will be used in Albany for Albany’s Gun Buyback Program.”
So, he wants to give inmates money to buy guns. What could possibly go wrong with that idea?
