NY State Governor Elections by Tom Reynolds
In the last 3 New York State governor elections, the numbers of people who voted were:
- 2014 1,537,000 (39.2% of total vote)
- 2018 2,208,000 (35.4% of total vote)
- 2022 2,763,000 (46.3% of total vote)
- 2014 532,000 (A. Cuomo vs R Astorino)
- 2018 1,428,000 (A.Cuomo vs M. Molinaro)
- 2022 378,000 (K. Hochul vs L. Zeldin)

Let’s say that half (50%) of the Republican votes were from gun owners and (since the Democrat Party is uncontestably anti-gun), let’s say gun owners voted 75% for Republicans and 25% for Democrats. Therefore, the total number of gun owners who voted were:
Conservatively estimated, there are 5 million gun owners in NY State! (Some estimates go as high as 6 million.)
Using the 5 million figure, these following numbers of gun owners didn’t vote:
1.1 million additional gun owners had voted in these elections and they continued to vote 75% for Republicans, that’s a net gain of 550,000 votes in each election.
In those same elections, the Democrat won by:
If those additional 1.1 million gun owners had voted, Republicans win 2 of the last 3 governor elections!
Go back and look at the estimated number of gun owners who voted and didn’t vote. An additional 1.1 million is not a stretch; the voting total never goes over 3 million which would be only 60% of the gun owners.
The answer to the craziness coming out of Albany – and not just on guns – is right before us: VOTE!
And yet, the majority of gun owners…
