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.

Townhall: Government Scientist Fired for Telling the Truth:

The Department of Interior is misleading the public and purging scientists who don’t go along with an increasingly radical green agenda. Eight government scientists were recently fired or reassigned after voicing concerns to their superiors about faulty environmental science used for policy decisions. Which begs the question, “Are some government agencies manipulating science to advance political agendas?”

Rural America has long been a target of environmentalists. Government agencies such as the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the DOI (Department of Interior) have been hijacked by extreme elements of environmentalism and rural America is feeling the heat. When environmental protocol is pitted against the welfare of a rural community, these agencies almost exclusively side with the environmental cause, and adverse consequences to the human element are considered last, if at all.

DOI has engaged in an aggressive crusade to obstruct and undermine the use of natural resources, restrict human access to public lands, and increase its influence over private property. Decisions made by the agency are presumed to be based on sound scientific analysis, but often times policy is driving the science, rather than science driving environmental policy. This has led to harmful decisions and a violation of the public trust.
