State Assembly Hides from New York's Sportsmen

TROY, NY (04/24/2009; 1440)(readMedia)-- The New York State Assembly Majority, in an apparent attempt to circumvent both the 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights of their constituents, has changed their long planned "Gun Day" from Wednesday April 29th to Tuesday April 28th.

The purpose of this change was, of course, to avoid the thousands of Sportsmen headed to Albany on April 29th for "Sportsmen's Lobby Day" to protest the Assembly's proposed anti-gun agenda. The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association considers it a shame and a disgrace that the Assembly leadership did not have the decency to allow the Sportsmen of New York the opportunity to speak against the legislation proposed to limit their rights.
