NYSRPA Pres. Tom King to skip Albany pro-gun rally:

Rifle & Pistol Association President Thomas King to skip Albany pro-gun rally:
'don't want to be a party to anything that may happen'

quote from "GRANNY' - Mr. King showed up and was willing to speak with the rest of us in Horseheads, NY recently. Why you ask?? Because he was also picking up a check! Message sent " Unless there's money in it Tom King doesn't want to be involved!"

[also note: they're still calling them rallies - blackhawk]

ALBANY - The head of New York's largest firearms organization is skipping a planned Tuesday Capitol protest of the state's tougher gun control laws enacted last year, saying he fears the rhetoric at such gatherings is becoming more "contentious and threatening."

Thomas King, a national NRA board member and president of the state Rifle & Pistol Association, argues that the angry and inflammatory rhetoric only hurts the cause of gun lovers.

"Let all these other groups go out and do what they want to do, because they don't want to listen anyway," he told the Daily News. "I just don't want to be a party to anything that may happen."

Tuesday's Albany rally is scheduled to feature Donald Trump, Republican gubernatorial wannabe Rob Astorino, and bombastic Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino, who lost to Gov. Cuomo four years ago.

Just saw this on Facebutt ... Sad people are slamming him for it. He is right holding these " rallies" does no good. Law makers can care less.

These rallies can get people energized to get off their behinds and VOTE.  We need to vote out the people who supported the SAFE Act.  As a Life Member of the NYSRPA I think it's time for new leadership.   Tom King has been in office too long and feels it's his job for life, he's not doing the cause any good by being divisive.  If he chooses not to attend the rallies that's ok, just don't need him to publicize negative comments about those that will attend.
