Moss, who would be the first African American the state GOP would pick for Lieutenant Governor, is head of the New York State Sheriffs' Association.

Supreme Court won't rule on carrying guns in public
Supreme Court won't rule on carrying guns in public - The Supreme Court appears hesitant to wade back into the national debate on guns. The court refused Monday to decide whether the right to bear arms extends outside the home. The justices won't consider a challenge to a New Jersey law that restricts most residents from carrying guns in public. The case would have marked the most significant gun control case at the high court since its District of Columbia v. Heller decision in 2008 upheld the right to keep handguns at home for self-defense.

Astorino takes aim at gun control law
Astorino takes aim at gun control law - Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino was in Johnstown on Monday at the Pine Tree Rifle Club, where he received a warm welcome from local residents and state officials. Astorino spoke about his campaign against Gov. Andrew Cuomo to a crowd of more than 50 people, where he criticized Cuomo for the state’s gun control law passed last year. “Cuomo took away your rights, then you just have to take away his job,” Astorino said, followed by loud applause from the audience. “This is not a New York City-based race, this is upstate. Almost half of the vote in this election will come from counties like Fulton and upstate New York, so you can make it happen.”
