Statement by David Forsythe — David Forsythe, candidate for the 118th Assembly District, issued the following statement regarding his recent endorsement by the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association: “I am pleased to receive the endorsement of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. As a strong supporter of the second amendment, I will fight to ensure that the rights of all New Yorkers are not infringed by a dysfunctional and bloated Albany Government.” “As Assemblyman I will support the rights of gun owners and sportsmen and I will oppose any laws that restrict or infringe gun ownership – especially the misguided microstamping legislation supported by my opponent.” “Like many in the North Country, I grew up learning to respect and appreciate our right to responsible gun ownership. I will take those values with me to Albany.” Mr. Forsythe, a small business owner and St. Lawrence County Legislator is the endorsed Republican and Conservative candidate for the 118th Assembly District which includes parts of Jefferson and St Lawrence Counties.
