Release: Reed Becomes First 2014 New York Candidate to Sign Anti Safe Act Pledge

Corning – Tom Reed’s campaign today announced that Reed has become the first candidate in New York to sign the Shooters Committee on Political Education (SCOPE) anti-SAFE Act pledge to publically support the repeal of the New York SAFE Act and oppose any similar gun-ban legislation at the federal level.

Reed joined the United Gun Owners of New York on Sunday afternoon to address the crowd and become the first candidate to sign the pledge.

“As a life-long hunter and sportsman, Tom’s views on the Second Amendment are very clear,” said Katherine Pudwill. “Since he took the oath of office he has worked to ensure that the constitutional freedoms of our friends and neighbors in the Southern Tier are never compromised. In contrast, Martha Robertson voted in support of the SAFE Act and served as chair of the only county legislature in upstate New York that has yet to oppose the legislation. It’s no wonder she’s getting thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from anti-Second Amendment extremists like Nancy Pelosi. We call on Martha Robertson to sign the pledge today.”
