New York is one of the most anti-gun states in the country. Gov. Andrew Cuomo had been on an anti-gun crusade throughout his entire run as governor.
However, his opponent, Marc Molinaro, wants to change that. He’s taken a strong pro-gun stance in a state where it might not help him all that much.
Unsurprisingly, the usual suspects are freaking out over the idea that anyone could disagree with them.
ALBANY — A prominent anti-gun violence group took aim Monday at GOP gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro for voting 32 times against bills to strengthen New York’s firearms laws.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America also blasted Molinaro for saying on the campaign trail this year that he wants to dismantle New York State’s tough SAFE gun control law passed in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.
“It’s an obvious problem ,” said Laura Burns, the group’s state communications lead. “He wants to go backward to weaken gun laws instead [of] maintaining what we have in New York and making them stronger.”
