Gun activists support DeFrancisco, Panepinto fires back at GOP

Gun rights activists who continue to be angered by the 2013 SAFE Act that bans or forces registration of assault weapons are hoping to play a role in the ongoing drama over embattled Senate Republican Majority Leader Dean Skelos.

Recalling that he and other members of the Long Island delegation voted for the SAFE Act they are pressuring the GOP Senate’s upstate delegation to oust Skelos, who is facing a criminal corruption complaint, and replace him with Syracuse’s John De Francisco.

De Francisco along with Long Island’s John Flanagan have been named as likely candidates to lead the conference should Skelos step down as leader.

“We sent out a statement to our members,” urging them to contact their senators and make their views known about Skelos, said Stephen Aldstadt of SCOPE, a group that has battled the SAFE Act. “We are sending them another one today,” he added, saying his group has an email list of about 10,000 people.
