JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. -- The Pine Tree Rifle Club was filled to capacity Monday evening when 300 gun owners filled the clubs two rooms to send a message to state government that opposition to the new gun law has not disappeared.
Hundreds of gun owners heard from Assemblyman Marc Butler and Tom King, who is a NRA board member and the president of the NY State Pistol and Rifle Association.
King says in a few days they are planning to file a comprehensive lawsuit against some of the provision the state requires the NY Safe Act.
The law is also one many gun owners say they don't understand completely.
"The law that got pushed through has all of us law abiding citizens asking so many questions, that we are befuddled by it," said one gun owner.
As Butler and his team tried to answer questions about when to register and what to register his other concern is Remington Arms, the huge firearms manufacturer in the Mohawk Valley that can no longer sell some of the firearms they make within the state because of the law.
Butler said, "One of the modifications I'd like to see is what the definition of an assault weapon is." He says he hopes to present a new bill amending the NY Safe Act soon.
