Zephyr Teachout would not repeal the NY Safe Act as governor

Teri Weaver

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Gov. Andrew Cuomo should have held public hearings and solicited comments about a stricter set of gun laws rushed through Albany early last year in the wake of the deadly school shootings in nearby Connecticut, Zephyr Teachout said.

But, all in all, Teachout agrees with most aspects of the NY Safe Act, the Democratic candidate for governor said Thursday at an editorial board meeting at Syracuse Media Group.

"I'm largely in support of the act," Teachout said. "Most of it, I would keep in place."

4. Travel anywhere upstate

and you'll see loads of signs in front yards calling for repeal of this law. It's not popular with too many folks who live about an hour outside of the city.

Remember, NY has elected Republicon governors and senators in the past. No party is ever completely dead anywhere, even if its opposition has enjoyed a string of election victories.

6. I've seen a few Astorino signs in yards

Maybe most folks who are conservative upstate don't necessarily want to be associated with him, but they'll vote for him in the fall. It all depends on NYC area turnout in most elections.

8. Probably

But I would be more confident of that if I were more assured that turnout (especially in November) would be at least almost as enthusiastic as it was when Barack Obama was at the top of the ballot.
