Republican Rep. Chris Gibson of New York may run for governor in 2018, citing gun rights as a core issue.

When it comes to combating crime, the congressman said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York that he believes in "deterrence through the Second Amendment."

Story continues below.


"We need to restore faith" in New York government, Gibson told host John Catsimatidis. He added that the state would benefit from his style of "leadership by example."

Gibson is completing six years in Congress, saying he believes in term limits and is sticking to that. He said he also would term-limit himself as governor.

The former U.S. Army colonel also blasted President Obama's plan to cut military headcount by 40,000, saying "This is absolutely not the time to be drawing down our armed forces."
