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.”
