For what it’s worth

Conservation Conversations

It has been said that those who attend the meetings make the laws, those that don’t, get to obey them, whether you like it or not. In our country, citizens have the right to protest unjust laws, that’s a First Amendment right.

Every county in New York State except New York City, Long Island, Tompkins and Albany have passed a resolution to oppose or repeal the NYS SAFE ACT. But, as of today, the governor has ignored the people — those very people he claims he works for. Responsible citizens and gun owners need to respond to this law and stand up for their constitutional rights. The battle lines are being drawn!

The NYS SAFE ACT was passed in an emotional rush to satisfy the anti-gunners, with disregard as to its outcome to responsible hunters and gun owners.

If you are concerned about you’re Second Amendment rights under the United States Constitution, and how the NYS SAFE ACT has stripped you of those rights, you need to show your support at the Second Amendment SAFE ACT rally:
