Assemblyman aims to push back against NY SAFE Act

Posted: Updated:

JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. -- The push-back against the state's tough new gun control law continues Monday.

This time, a state assemblyman is going to his constituents saying their second amendment rights are being violated.

A huge crowd of gun owners is gathering inside the hall at the Pine Tree Rifle Club, and more are expected.

Assemblyman Marc Butler who is hosting the meeting says since the NY SAFE Act passed he's gotten calls, letters email from gun owners who are confused about what the law means for them.

Butler, along with the state Rifle and Pistol Association president, will try to clear up some of the confusion.

Their goal is the prevent gun owners from accidental noncompliance.

Butler also feels that Gov. Cuomo rushed this bill after emotions were high about Sandy Hook and he feels the way the law defines an assault rifle isn't very accurate.

He also says it threatens economic stability in his communities especially in Herkimer County where Remington Arms is based.

He will be seeking input and support for repealing the law.
