Gun rights rallies took place all across the nation, today, as Americans from New York to Washington rallied to show their support for the 2nd Amendment. Albany New York, where some of the strictest gun laws in the nation were recently passed, saw thousands of patriots come out to protest the new laws.

YNN reported:

ALBANY, N.Y. — Thousands of pro gun rights activists are rallying at the state Capitol today. The rally is being held in conjunction with the group Guns Across America, a national series of rallies supporting the Second Amendment.

Many at today’s rally are pushing to repeal the newly enacted SAFE Act.

The Democrat and Chronicle reported:

Chanting “Freedom,” “U.S.A.” and “Cuomo’s Gotta Go,” several thousand people expressed opposition to the new law championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The measure is the first and toughest law in the nation since the Newtown. Conn, school shootings last month. Cuomo and supporters have hailed the law as a critical step toward curbing gun violence in the state and nation.

Gun owners, however, said they are being unfairly targeted by the new law and were dismayed by the quick passage of it by lawmakers. The bill was adopted hours after it was printed.

  3. Actually in the last picture, the sign that says that muskets were assault rifles is wrong. The Kentucky Long Rifle was the assault and sniper rifle. The British had the muskets and were very aware of the Kentucky Long Rifle.
    History.

  5. Everyone of us should be contacting out congress persons and demanding that they start impeachment proceedings against our current president. One hearing for everyone of his trying to overturn the Constitution. Overwhelm him with trying to defend himself.

  18. How many names on a petition would it take to start recall proceedings for Cuomo? He has no one but his own best interests in mind. He’ll never be president, but that’s another story. Let’s get this enemy of freedom out of Albany pronto!

  26. Get focused and devoted and locate a spot where you can play daily,
    whether with peers or other footballers. Alabama will try to rebound from their loss to the
    Sooners and rank fourth in the Sporting News college football preseason rankings.
    During matches rush for football tickets goes beyond any margin, and it becomes tough for the organisers to handle that.
