Spin Cycle

News, views and commentary on Long Island, state and national politics.

Sounds like Suffolk Executive Steve Levy, while going full guns against his county's PBA and its allies among legislators, got into some trouble in an upstate radio interview today by showing ignorance of the role of Remington Arms, which still makes weapons in Ilion N.Y. (although its corporate headquarters is in North Carolina).  In this and other ways, he seems to be doing a reverse of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand -- by moving from a downstate to an upstate sensibility on gun control.
