Senator Gillibrand Lied To You

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand flat-out lied. As the New York Democrat’s 2018 re-election campaign neared its end, she bluntly denied she would run for president and pledged to serve her full term.

According to an editorial in The Buffalo News (https://buffalonews.com/2019/01/17/editorial-gillibrand-lied/):

At her Oct. 25 debate with Republican challenger Chele Farley, Gillibrand and the moderator had this exchange:

Question: “Can you tell New Yorkers, who plan to vote for you on Nov. 6, that you will, if re-elected, serve out your six-year Senate term?”

Gillibrand: “I will. …”

Question: “Just want to make this clear, you’re saying that you will not get out of the race and you will not run for president? You will serve your six years?”

Gillibrand: “I will serve my six-year term.”

A similar exchange occurred the following day, while meeting with the Buffalo News editorial board:

Question: Are you really not running for president?

Gillibrand: I’m really running for Senate.

Question: But you’re not going to?

Gillibrand: No, I’m focused on my Senate race …

That looks like a lie to me.

Kirsten Gillibrand is Embarrassed and Ashamed of her Former Gun Rights Views

After lying to you just 9 weeks ago about fulfilling her term as a New York Senator and not running for President, lets reminisce on her former statements on gun rights.

Gillibrand said in a CBS News interview last year that as she expanded her views beyond “the lens of Upstate New York,” she realized that her gun rights and immigration positions were “wrong.”“I just didn’t take the time to understand why these issues mattered because it wasn’t right in front of me. And that was my fault,” Gillibrand said in the interview. “It was something that I’m embarrassed about and I’m ashamed of.”

How can anyone vote for this person. Maybe some protests at her future Troy office are a good idea.

Albany School Has Skiing and Target Shooting Program

Albany School Has Skiing and Target Shooting Program
I ran across this program while looking at the Castleton Fish and Game web site.  Interesting.  Hats off to the Nordic Alliance for this.
Russ Myer, an Albany resident, runs a non-profit organization called Capital Region Nordic Alliance. He provides after-school training in biathlon (skiing and target shooting) as well as orienteering (think scavenger hunt meets relay race) at Hackett Middle School in the Albany City School District.

Support Cathy Young for Senate minority Leader?

Support Cathy Young for Senate minority Leader?

The NYS Rifle & Pistol Association wants to back Cathy Young for minority leader of the NY Senate. They figure it is time for John Flanagan to move over and let someone else lead that represents upstate values. We are thinking of backing them on this. What do you think?

A Generic Letter Some Members are Sending to Field & Stream

Here is a generic letter some members are sending to Field & Stream via the web site survey (https://dcsg.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0lbxtecnOsIRRAN)

I am a gun owner and outdoorsman. I have shopped at Dick’s and Field & Stream many times in the past.

When Dick’s announced the company would no longer sell rifles and shotguns to anyone less than 21 years old, this made me concerned that corporate had been swayed by a minority public opinion.

When Dick’s announced the company would no longer sell certain types of rifles and shotguns, pull these items from existing stock not to sell, and would destroy these instead of returning these firearms to the manufacturers, this upset me even more.

When I read Dick’s corporate had hired a known anti-gun lobbyist law firm in Washington D.C., that was the final move I would not tolerate as a customer of Dick’s.

It is ironic that a company that still sells a limited inventory of firearms hires a anti-gun lobbyist!!

Since that last Dick’s decision, I will never shop in any Dick’s or Field and Stream store again! I will recommend to my friends, on social media, and the organizations I belong to, not to shop at either store!

I will instead do my shopping at local businesses and FFL dealers for all my needs and wants. They are more than willing to talk and socialize, deal, and sell me what I would have bought at Dick’s and Field and Stream at a better price.

Sincerely,
