Huge crowd for NY SAFE Act Forum in Finger Lakes

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

Hundreds of residents from around the Finger Lakes town of Canandaigua turned out Wednesday night at an educational forum on the NY SAFE Act, the strict gun control law passed by Governor Cuomo and the legislature in January.   The forum was held by Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb (R-Canandaigua) and featured a panel that included longtime Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero and Tom King of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. 

Many of the people that rose to speak had technical questions about how the bill would affect them and their particular firearms. Others used their time to criticize the bill and the governor. 

"Tell Andrew Cuomo that he works for us.  We don't work for him," said one 62 year old man. "The time for questions are over.  Andrew Cuomo has to go."
