Thousands of gun-right supporters filled the West Capitol Park today to protest the state’s gun-control law, seeking a repeal of the law and a condemnation of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Signs read, “Cuomo – Take the criminals’ guns; leave mine alone” and “Cuomo Kiss My AR’s!” and “Say no to Comrade Cuomo.”

“Not all aspects of the law are bad, but some of them don’t make sense. I don’t feel that the governor can even explain them,” said Heidi Hayes, 32, of Stone Ridge, Ulster County.

Sen. James Seward, R-Milford, Otsego County, said he would like to see a full repeal of the law. He said that is unlikely, though, and will hope an expected lawsuit to toss the measure will be successful.

“I think the best opportunity to make some changes in the bill, to make it more reasonable and workable in terms of law abiding gun owners in New York. But the ultimate answer is the court challenge,” he said.
