Second Amendment

Posted: November 12, 2021 in 2nd Amendment

It’s one thing for politicians and candidates to say they “support the Second Amendment.” It’s another thing for candidates to demonstrate they support the Second Amendment and the rights of law-abiding gun owners. 

As an Assemblyman, I didn’t just talk the talk, but I walked the walk. I didn’t bow down to the pressures from radical gun control special interests who seek to chip away at our Constitutional rights.

I stood firm and defended our Second Amendment:

  • Introduced legislation that would have repealed the so-called SAFE Act (A.5599, 2018)
  • Opposed the state’s “Red flag law” (A.2689, 2019)
  • Opposed legislation that unfairly extend delays for law-abiding gun owners to legally purchase firearms (A.2690, 2019)
  • Helped pass legislation to amend the state’s safe storage law to ensure youth shooting programs could continue in New York, and more… (Chap. 133, 2019)

In every election, I have always run with the support of the National Rifle Association and the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association. I’m a proud gun owner, pistol permit holder, and member of the NRA.

As County Executive, I’ll continue to stand up for our rights as Americans and as law-abiding gun owners and 

  • Work with our county clerk and other officials to do all we can to protect pistol permit holders’ information from unsafe or inappropriate disclosure
  • Oppose proposals that further infringe on our Constitutional Rights
  • Make Putnam County a Constitutional County.
