Lancman rips Turner on handgun stance

Lancman rips Turner on handgun stance – State Assemblyman Rory Lancman (D-Hillcrest) last week excoriated Congressman Bob Turner (R-Queens and Brooklyn) for refusing to support federal gun control legislation pending in Washington.  Turner and his office last week declined to comment on whether or not he would reconsider his stand on firearms legislation in the wake of the shooting death of NYPD Officer Peter Figoski in December.  Lancman, widely considered to be running against Turner in November, issued a scathing statement on Jan. 5.
