Albany, NY- Thousands of concerned New Yorkers from around the state will gather on the West side of the NYS Capitol in Albany on Tuesday, February 12th from 11-2 to voice their concerns over the SAFE Act and support the Second Amendment. This event is being sponsored by many pro-Second Amendment Groups, including turn Albany Upside Down, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association (NYSRPA), and S.C.O.P.E.
Many pro-Second Amendment supporters were offended to hear their concerns marginalized by Governor Cuomo as "a very vocal minority." Organizers are encouraging Governor Cuomo and other legislators who voted in favor of the SAFE Act to participate in the event so they may better understand the concerns of a majority of NY'ers, including many law enforcement, County legislators and sheriffs, who are in increasing numbers refusing to enforce the bill.
"Since the bill was passed in the dark of night our event will give Governor Cuomo the opportunity to address his concerned constituents in the light of day" said event organizer Gary L Perry.
The rally will take place from 11-2, and features speakers such as Stewart Rhodes (Montana based founder of Oathkeepers), NYSRPA president Tom King, former Gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, Senators Kathy Marchione, Greg Ball and Lee Zeldin; Assemblypeople Steve Katz, Steve McLaughlin, Claudia Tenney and Ann-Marie Buerkle; Outspoken Albany Legislator Debora Busch Charles Heller (Founder of the Arizona Citizen's Defense League) and Deneen Borelli (Fox news contributor and frequent guest on Hannity, Glenn Beck, O'Reilly), plus many more. Local 1300 radio personality Melody Burns will emcee the event.
Many average citizens from every NY district will be lobbying the legislators in their offices throughout the day.
