Citizens board buses to rally against SAFE Act in Albany

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - Thousands are expected to turn out in Albany Tuesday to rally for their second amendment rights, opposing Governor Cuomo's NY SAFE Act.

This particular rally is not organized by any one particular group. Instead, it is just made of a group of citizens who say they feel the new laws impede on their right to bear arms.

A group of roughly 53 citizens boarded a bus in the parking lot of the Herkimer Wal-Mart, filling the bus to near capacity. Those who were headed to Albany were very passionate about what they want, which is the repeal of the NY SAFE Act.

"There really isn't anything that would ever appease the anti-gunners," said David Cruger, one of the citizens taking part in the rally. "The Bloombergs, the Schumers, the Diane Feinsteins. These people want total annihilation of the second amendment and we're not going to stand for that."

At least two other buses departed from Oneida County Tuesday morning in Utica and Rome.
