WNY’ers Going to Albany to Protest Gun Laws Today
There's at least a hundred of them, and they're expected to join an estimated 20 to 30 thousand Tuesday to lobby against the New York SAFE Act in the state's capitol.
Carl Paladino, an activist, says, "That's sick for our governor, that's sick for our legislators, that's sick for all of them. It illustrates the poor quality of people that we have in Albany today. We'll lead the march in Albany. We'll take them down one at a time, but we'll take them down", according to WKBW.
Paladino is also expected to speak to a large group of activists as well.
On the other hand, there are supporters such as Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster:
"I simply felt in the wake of Newtown, as a mayor, as a gun owner and sportsmen, that we couldn't sit on the sidelines anymore -- we had to do something. We needed to get started (by) taking some common sense actions, like universal background checks."
What side of the fence do you sit on?
