Register your guns or register to vote? Billboard promotes Astorino – Actually, it’s basically saying that if you don’t want to register your guns through the SAFE Act, the tough gun-control law last year championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, you need to register to vote and vote for Astorino. Gun owners, particularly upstate, have railed against the gun law, saying it infringes on their Second Amendment rights. And the state’s Rifle & Pistol Association is suing to have the law overturned; opponents of the law want it repealed.
