New York –-( The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association calls for an additional televised debate between Governor Andrew Cuomo and challenger Rob Astorino.

The single gubernatorial debate last week gave each candidate only 12 minutes to speak and left many important subjects untouched.

“Governor Cuomo made gun control his signature issue and made it clear that he intended it to be the foundation of a future presidential campaign,” said NYSRPA President Thomas King.

“Because of time constraints the issue was not seriously discussed. I’d think the Governor would jump at another chance to spotlight his issue and tell all New Yorkers how much better off they are because of his actions.”

Communist Cuomo wants a presidential campaign based on Unconstitutional firearm bans, people already know about his views. Christie is no better. The Republicans need to get their people in order, putting these 2 on a ballot is FAIL. If the Republicans want to win ,they need some better candidates . The U.S. needs to restore government to what it should be , not the NSA snooping , ATF gun running, FBI we need to listen to your phone, Military lets give retirements for 50 years , TSA thousands stealing anything .
