More positive change in NY

Small steps my friends, small steps...

From the NYSRPA:

David Yassky is a former staffer to Charles Schumer. He's the guy
who actually wrote the Brady Bill. He moved up to the City Council
where he continued to push for more gun control like strict gun
dealer liability. Pat, Amy and Barry testified on behalf of NYSRPA
in council hearings against these ideas. Yassky himself defended
them on NRA News. Faced with term limits Yassky decided to run for
City Comptroller. He has no background related to finance so he
based his campaign largely on his gun control record. Both the Daily
News and New York Times endorsed his campaign because of it. New
Yorkers Against Gun Violence founder Barbara Hohlt personally
contributed to his campaign. His advertisements loudly and proudly
touted his work with Schumer. Yassky thought it was funny we were
telling people to vote against him. Quote: "This is a badge of honor
for David, who has fought for tough gun control for years in order to
protect New Yorkers."

What did this badge of honor get him in the primary?

He lost with 30% of the vote.

Unfortunately, it was a 4 way race and the winner came up just short
of the 40% needed to prevent a runoff. So Yassky advanced to round
two anyway and we let fly a second GOTV mailing. Now going
mano-a-mano with John Liu, Democrats would have a clear choice
between the gun control candidate and someone else in a citywide
runoff. Yassky had something Richard Aborn didn't: an endorsement by
Charles Schumer as seen here

And what's Schumer's endorsement worth?

A double digit loss. Yassky gets 44.3% to Liu's 55.7%. Since he had
to give up his Council seat to run for Comptroller he's got nowhere
else to go so he's outta here. For the second time in as many weeks
NYC Democrats have rejected the gun control candidate and their
agenda and that will further marginalize the people and organizations
who promoted them.

Non-resident permits would be nice. I live in MA and have a family summer home in Lewis County. I've been spending summers at the lake since I was a baby (born in 67 in White Plains). Love the Adirondack Park and would like to be able to cross the border with my sidearm. Will have to wait for that I'm sure...At least there is hope
