ALBANY — Thousands of angry opponents of New York’s new gun-control law rallied outside the Capitol yesterday to vent their anger at Gov. Cuomo and demand a repeal of the state’s strict new rules on guns.
The rally featured National Rifle Association President David Keene, who ridiculed Cuomo as a “a bad penny” from the Clinton administration whom he said didn’t understand the Constitution.
“We know the Second Amendment doesn’t just apply to squirrel hunting,” Keene told the crowd as he vowed to help overturn the law in court and defeat the lawmakers who voted for it.
“What’s happened in New York is outrageous,” Keene said after the rally. “Nothing in the legislation that he’s passed is going to prevent another Newtown.”
