ALBANY, New York –-( According to the Post-Standard, shootings in Syracuse are up 50% for the first six months of the year compared with the same time last year.

When compared to the five-year average, city shootings are still up 3%.

When presented with these statistics, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association President Tom King made this statement:

“This is more proof that the so-called SAFE Act has not made Syracuse any safer for city residents. State Senator David Valesky and Assemblymen Al Stripe and Bill Magnarelli should admit they made a mistake by voting for it and support legislative efforts to repeal it.”

The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association is the state’s largest and oldest firearms advocacy organization. Since 1871, our organization has been dedicated to the preservation of Second Amendment rights, firearm safety, education and training, and the shooting sports.

Nah… Just proof they didn’t go far enough; more courageous work to be done in the middle of the night.


That is the problem with Liberals, RDNK…they are not emotionally mature enough to admit when they are wrong.
Rather, they dig deeper in, believing in their own infallibility rather than what facts and data actually show to be true.
The indicators are pretty clear, such as their vitriol towards those that have opposing views rather than engage in a learned discourse. Logical fallacies are their weapons, not their foibles, in their own mind. Especially the ad-hominem…they seem to love that one so much, as is reflected in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, tactic #5.

But then, we both knew that, right?


…..”they should admit their mistake” ? Cuomo and his band of liberal trash admit their mistakes ? Did I tell about that beachfront property in Arizona,..? ….
