Painted Post- Tom Reed knows how to handle firearms and now he knows the struggles of owning and operating a sporting goods store.  “Gun ownership is a constitutionally guaranteed right under the Second Amendment. I am dedicated to protecting it,” said Tom Reed. “It’s family owned and operated businesses  like, Bullseye Shooter's Supply, which are the backbone of our economy. They are the small businesses that suffer when Obama and Democrats in Congress try to restrict our gun rights. It’s only fair that we fight to protect our rights and jobs."

Reed spent Tuesday afternoon at Bullseye Shooter's Supply, in Painted Post,  with Owner Jeff Jones, to better understand the day-to-day operations of a firearm supply store. While helping stock shelves and learning about the procedure to purchase firearms, Reed and Jones discussed how Governor Cuomo and President Obama’s attempts to restrict gun ownership have impacted the business.
 
“I am proud to have Tom Reed come to our family store because he has never stopped fighting for our rights,” stated Jeff Jones, Owner of Bullseye Shooter's Supply. "It's nice to see a member of Congress not only say where they stand on the issues, but to actually be out showing it, especially on an issue like gun rights. Tom was the first candidate in New York State to sign the anti-SAFE Act pledge. This is just one example of Tom making sure our voices are always heard.” 

“Tom has repeatedly stood up to Clinton, Cuomo, and DC John Plumb’s liberal, anti-gun agenda that infringes on our rights,” said Amy Hasenberg, Tom Reed for Congress Spokeswoman.  “Tom has proven he cares about our rights and he will keep fighting for us as he always has.”

Reed: A Promise Made is a Promise Kept

Fighting for Social Security for future generations 
by Tom Reed

 

I know firsthand the importance of Social Security because I was raised on it. My father died when I was very young which left my mother to raise my siblings and me herself. She relied on Social Security and my father's military death benefits to take care of us. Now, as a member of Congress I am fighting to make sure Social Security is around for generations to come. 

 

Our families grew up contributing to Social Security. We grew up counting on Social Security to be around for if and when we need it. It's only fair that we stand up and fight to protect it for our generations and for kids and grandkids. A promise made is a promise kept. 
Protecting Social Security should not be a political issue. It is something we can do by working together. 

 

I was a cosponsor of No Label's Strategic Agenda Resolution which strives to achieve four main goals for our nation on a bipartisan basis. One of those goals is to secure Social Security and Medicare for the next 75 years. I am dedicated to achieving this goal. 

 

I will fight to protect Social Security because I know from personal experience how important it is. We regularly hear from New Yorkers telling us how important Social Security is to their families and we work tirelessly to address any concerns or problems with it. We are fighting for you and your family.
