Corning- Tom Reed’s campaign today announced an “A+” rating from the Shooters Committee on Political Education (S.C.O.P.E.) in New York State.
The Shooters Committee on Political Education voter rating system helps Second Amendment supporters stay informed about candidates before heading to the polls. The ratings addressed any vote in favor of the New York SAFE Act and a history of support for Second Amendment rights.
Tom Reed was the first candidate to sign the SCOPE “Anti-SAFE Act Pledge” back in February and received an “A+” rating for consistently supporting gun owners. Martha Robertson received an “F” rating for her votes in favor of the SAFE Act, voting to ban rifle hunting in Tompkins County and failing to sign the anti-SAFE Act pledge.
"Tom Reed has an 'A+' rating from SCOPE because as a fellow sportsmen, he has consistently stood up for our Second Amendment rights,” said Sid Compton, Chautauqua County S.C.O.P.E. Chairman. “Martha Robertson received an 'F' rating for voting for the initial passage of the SAFE Act and banning rifle hunting in Tompkins County. Tom Reed believes in protecting our Second Amendment rights and received SCOPE's top grade because of it."
"As a life-long hunter and sportsman, Tom's views on the Second Amendment are very clear,” said Katherine Pudwill. “Since he took the oath of office he has worked to ensure that the constitutional freedoms of our friends and neighbors in the Southern Tier are never compromised. In contrast, Martha Robertson voted in support of the SAFE Act and served as chair of the only county legislature in upstate New York that has yet to oppose the legislation. It's no wonder she's getting thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from anti-Second Amendment extremists like Nancy Pelosi.”
