Pro-Gun Rights Groups To Rally Tuesday In Albany

Pro-gun rights groups are rallying at the state Capitol on Tuesday to protest the gun-control law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last month.

It will be the second rally at the Capitol since the law took effect Jan. 15. And it won’t be the last: the state Rifle and Pistol Association is holding a rally and lobby day on Feb. 28.

The one Tuesday will seek a repeal of the NY-SAFE Act, which imposed the toughest gun-control measures in the country.

More than 2,000 people attended a rally at the Capitol on the Saturday after the law was passed.

Lawmakers have indicated that there would be amendments to the law, particularly one that exempts police officers from the assault-weapons ban—which was an oversight in the hastily approved law.

The state Rifle and Pistol Association indicated it plans to file a lawsuit against the state over the law, claiming it is unconstitutional and infringes on Second Amendment rights.
