Albany – Gun rights advocates and some republican law makers say they will present a petition with more than 100,000 signatures to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office during a protest at the state capital.
The group is in the state capitol today to protesting the state’s gun-control law passed in January.
There have been many other significant rallies in Albany in opposition to the law, which toughens the state’s assault-weapons ban and requires additional registration by gun owners.
Attendees of the rally say they will focus on the objections law enforcement and public officials have to the law that passed following the shootings in Newtown Connecticut and in West Webster last December.
The groups are seeking a repeal of the law, which passed with bi-partisan support in the legislature. There is also a lawsuit to have the law overturned. Cuomo in the past has said that he doesn’t expect changes to the law.
