New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Endorses Robert Germino for State Assembly

TROY, NY (09/27/2010)(readMedia)-- The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, the state's largest and nation's oldest 2nd Amendment advocacy organization, announces the endorsement of Robert Germino for State Assembly in District 13.

"Robert Germino will defend the 2nd Amendment civil rights of all New Yorkers" said Thomas H. King, President of NYSRPA.

In contrast his opponent, incumbent Assemblyman Charles Lavine, has a proven contempt for civil rights and a disgraceful record of coddling violent criminals. He has repeatedly voted in favor of legislation criminalizing keeping firearms available for self-defense in the home, voted in favor of various firearm and ammunition prohibitions and attacked those who disagree with him on the floor of the Assembly.

"Gun owners have a clear choice in Assembly District 13" King said. "Robert Germino believes people have the right to possess firearms for self-defense. Charles Lavine does not. NYSRPA encourages all gun owners to support Robert Germino for State Assembly on November 2."
