The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, the state’s largest and nation’s oldest 2nd Amendment advocacy organization, announces the endorsement of Carl Paladino for Governor.
Paladino is the only creditable candidate running on a major party line with any respect for our civil rights.
Both Rick Lazio and Andrew Cuomo have repeatedly demonstrated over their long political careers nothing but contempt for our personal liberties and both have publically indicated that if elected Governor, further civil rights infringements would be a top priority for their administrations. This is unacceptable.
The choice is therefore simple. NYSRPA encourages all enrolled Republicans and Conservatives to support Paladino in the Sept. 14 primary.
