She really deserves and “A”, but we'll make an exception.
New York –-(Ammoland.com)- The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Political Victory Fund bestows a grade of “F” upon Democrat Lt. Governor candidate Kathy Hochul.
New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA) has decided to make a special exception for Hochul to our long standing policy of how incumbents are rated.
“We usually grade incumbents based upon their actions in office,” said NYSRPA President Tom King. “Using that criteria, Hochul would have earned an “A”.”
It is common for political candidates to say whatever they think is necessary to get elected, but it is unclear to New York State Rifle & Pistol Association why Hochul feels the need to hide her record on gun rights.
“There's a reason not a single candidate in New York is sucking up to the gun prohibitionist groups,” said King.
“They're nothing but astroturf. They have never been able to turn out voters on their issue. Nevertheless, if it makes her happy, we'll give Hochul an “F” rating and tell everyone to support Tim Wu instead.”
