NY Gun Rights Groups
ALBANY — A few hundred gun-rights supporters rallied at the state Capitol on Tuesday, calling on their fellow firearms owners to flout New York’s controversial new gun laws.

“Do not comply,” Melody Burns, a local talk show host and the rally’s emcee, told the crowd. “I just want to remind you — do not comply!”

The Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, which was shepherded through the Legislature by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in January, includes lower limits on the number of rounds allowed in magazines and a stricter ban on assault weapons, while requiring those who previously owned such guns to register with the state.

Compliance with the laws have led to heated debate ever since, with some county sheriffs even suggesting they won’t enforce the new provisions. There are several lawsuits seeking to have the law overturned.
