NYSRPA calls for another gubernatorial debate

Voters deserve to have the issues debated in public

ALBANY, NY (10/27/2014)(readMedia)-- 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."
