Gun groups tout SAFE Act anger in election wins

by Joseph Spector  |  published on November 7, 2014

Gun-rights groups said they were able to make gains in the state Legislature, even though they were unable to defeat Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The gun-control law championed by Cuomo last year angered upstate voters, and gun-rights groups claimed victory in some races that were pivotal for control of the Senate.

The state Rifle & Pistol Association endorsed Republican candidates George Amedore and Sue Serino—who both won.

“While Rob Astorino was unsuccessful in his gubernatorial bid, much of his loss can be attributed to the lack of support by the Republican establishment,” said the group’s president Tom King.

“Elsewhere, in elections across the state, gun-control supporters were the clear losers. In fact, loss of the numeric Democrat majority in the State Senate can be directly attributed to the current administration’s gun control policies.” he continued.
