Plattsburgh’s first Pro 2nd Amendment Rally was a success with attendance estimates approaching 500. The huge parking lot on the old Air Force Military Base Oval was overflowing.
Speakers included Arizona Sheriff Mack, Albany Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin , Former NY gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, Clinton County Sheriff David Favro, Karen Bisso and others. Albany Conservative Radio host Melody Burns pumped up the crowd serving as emcee.
The weather threatened the successful event all day right up to the event start but cleared up as the rally went on. Obviously, participation would have been greater if not for the weather, overall not bad for a first time event.
One observation is that we are blessed with many talented and motivated speakers throughout New York State, that is particularly so right here in the north country. Future event planners need not look too far for speakers, New York Patriots can take care of themselves. One local firecracker up on the podium was our own Karen Bisso who had the crowd rocking!
Assemblyman McLaughlin announced his aspiration to run for NY Governor while working the stage with Carl Paladino standing nearby, who knows, Plattsburgh could be the process catalyst for our new governor!
