Pizza & Ice Cream

NYSRPA - 26 August 2018 - 8:18pm

I attended a private “Pizza & Ice Cream Party” yesterday in Kinderhook with several incumbents and candidates for state and local offices.

I cannot stress how important it is for gun owners to go to events like this. They go on all over the state and with increasing frequency as the November elections approach. Check your county and local political party websites and those of the candidates themselves for a calendar of events.

Michael Volpe on gun control

NYSRPA - 22 August 2018 - 10:44am

Now that Stephanie Miner has secured enough signatures to be on the November ballot, it’s time to look at her running mate Pelham Mayor Michael Volpe.

A little digging to find out his position on guns reveals this from the February 27, 2018 Board of Trustees meeting minutes:

“… Mayor Volpe reported he has received emails and letters about continued gun violence in schools, and Mayor Volpe stated the Board will meet offline to discuss whether the Board will support efforts towards gun control. Mayor Volpe reported he is an advocate for gun control measures, and this issue needs to be addressed from both sides of the political aisle …”

It doesn’t go into details, but it is safe to assume he is no friend of 2A.

Dumb moves

NYSRPA - 21 August 2018 - 7:55pm

Governor Cuomo has made a couple of noticeable political mistakes the last few days.

First, he tried to block an ad by Marc Molinaro from airing:

“… Given the false, misleading and defamatory content of the Molinaro advertisement, we respectfully request that you cease and desist from any further broadcast or publication,” the letter said in part …”

Here is the video in question:

Next, the Governor agreed to a debate with Cynthia Nixon. As George Marlin points out in his Newsmax commentary:

“… It was a dumb move because Cuomo has no upside. He will lose if he looks like a mean or condescending bully and Nixon will win if she comes across as pleasant and stands up to the governor …”

Prediction: Nixon is going to “win” the debate by being pleasant. I don’t think she will win the Democrat primary, but I could see her getting 40% of the vote.

Cuomo faces another challenge from the Left in the general election. Former Democrat Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner has filed to run for Governor on the Serve America Movement ballot line.

Miner has a history of supporting gun control:

I have not seen any polls that included Miner, but if she starts polling in double digits expect more dumb moves by Cuomo.
