Cuomo, Astorino trade barbs over SAFE Act

Cuomo, Astorino trade barbs over SAFE Act – Republican Rob Astorino has made his opposition to the state’s gun-control laws a key plank of his campaign, hoping to build support among gun-rights groups. But in recent days, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has released a flurry of ads knocking Astorino for an “ultraconservative” gun stance. “Rob Astorino supports bringing guns into schools and teaching students to shoot,” one mailer reads. The front of the mailer shows a school hallway with the message: “There’s a gun down this hallway.” Astorino has railed against the portrayal, and Astorino’s wife, Sheila, released a web video Wednesday chastising Cuomo’s attack ads, which are being funded through the state Democratic Committee. “You’ve really gone too far for this mom and schoolteacher. Telling people my husband wants guns in classrooms? Guns in classrooms? You can’t be serious,” she... read more

Last-minute money: NRA, pro-Astorino PAC spend on ads

Last-minute money: NRA, pro-Astorino PAC spend on ads – The National Rifle Association is making a last-minute push in the New York governor’s race — by dropping a little more than $100,000 on Internet advertisements against Gov. Andrew Cuomo. State Board of Elections records show the NRA’s political action committee spent $104,618 earlier this week on the ads, though the filing doesn’t include details about when are where those ads will run. The gun-rights group is a major opponent of Cuomo, in large part because of the series of gun-control laws he ushered through the Legislature in 2013. But until this ad buy, it hadn’t done much to support Astorino financially, donating $5,000 to his campaign on Oct.... read more

With Gun Act, Cuomo Alienates Upstate New York Constituency

With Gun Act, Cuomo Alienates Upstate New York Constituency – In large stretches of upstate New York, it is the reason Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is deeply unpopular. To many voters in New York City and its suburbs, it is one of his crowning achievements. Mr. Cuomo made New York the first state to pass a broad package of new gun laws after the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., in 2012. Seizing a singular political moment, he called it the Safe Act, and he implored Congress to follow his lead. Nearly two years later, as he seeks a second term, Mr. Cuomo presents the act to his supporters as one of his greatest successes, and Democrats are assailing the governor’s Republican challenger, Rob Astorino, for being lax on guns. It remains one of the most far-reaching pieces of gun-control legislation passed in response to the Newtown... read more
