Conservative Party boss Michael Long, NYSRPA President Tom King team up to woo Second Amendment voters – NY Daily News.

They didn’t even flinch.

Conservative Party of New York State Chairman Michael Long and NYS Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King get together to make their pitch to Second Amendment voters in a new web ad shot at a Westchester gun range.

Not sure if it was intentional, but the timing of the shots in the background provides an incredible counterpoint to the duo’s to-camera talk.

“The Conservative Party has had a long history of support for Second Amendment Rights,” Long says at the Blue Mountain Sportsman Center in Cortlandt Manor.

“Matter of fact, the Conservative Party is the only party in the state of New York that (bang, bang, BANG) states clearly in our platform that we support the Second Amendment,” Long continues.

“Well, you know, because (bang, KABOOM) of [your] steadfast support of the Second Amendment is the reason that I’m here, and it’s all the reason I’m going to urge my members to vote on the Conservative Party line,” King responds. “Let’s send a message to the Republican politicians that we support those who support us.”

The shoot ‘em up missive — in which no one is actually seen using a firearm — dovetails nicely with our Ken Lovett’s Monday column, which connects the dots between the passage of Gov. Cuomo’s NY SAFE gun regs and a subsequent tanking in gun-group donations to local lawmakers:

“National pro-gun groups have largely holstered their checkbooks since the passage of Gov. Cuomo’s tough gun control law early last year. The National Rifle Association, the National Shooting Sports Federation, and gun manufacturers have donated just $33,893 to candidates in New York since the beginning of 2013, far less than in previous two-year election cycles, a Daily News review determined.”
