NRA has given an “A” rating and endorsement to State Senator Sue Serino.  She faces “F” rated State Senator Michelle Hinchey in the race for the new 41st District.  They have done an “orange card’ mailing on her behalf and a larger mailing attacking Hinchey stating, “… [T]here is a PRO-GUN CANDIDATE, SENATOR SUSAN SERINO, who has a proven record of protecting our Second Amendment rights …”

That is not an accurate reflection of her voting record.

From the Daily Freeman:

“… Two Republican state senators in the Mid-Hudson Valley joined Democrats this week in supporting two bills that sponsors say could reduce gun violence. But Sue Serino, R-Hyde Park, and Mike Martucci, R-New Hampton, voted against other gun-related measures that came before legislators … The Legislature passed a package of anti-gun violence bills on Tuesday ranging from a ban on possession of “ghost” guns that lack serial numbers to a ban on the purchase of a weapon by anyone facing an outstanding arrest warrant for a felony or serious offense … Both Serino and Martucci voted in favor of those two bills but opposed legislation allowing the New York attorney general to sue gun manufacturers in certain scenarios …”

A reasonable argument can be made that Serino is better on 2A than Hinchey, but a more accurate grade would be a “C.”
