Albany, N.Y., February 28--One of New York's largest-ever protest rallies is expected in Albany today in opposition to the new New York gun control law, the NY SAFE Act

The Act continues to draw the ire of county legislatures, sheriffs, state and local officials, mental health professionals, sportsmen and sportswomen, gun owners and individual citizens throughout the Southern Tier and Fingers Lakes regions, and statewide.

A recent meeting in Yates County drew more than 200 participants.

Senator O'Mara, along with area Assemblymen Phil Palmesano, Bill Nojay, Joe Giglio and Chris Friend voted against the SAFE Act when it was approved in mid- January.
