Pro 2nd Amendment Protesters: Burn Gun Registration Forms at a SAFE Act Forum

stuffHundreds of Second Amendment supporters took to an upstate New York forum on the SAFE Act and promptly turned their gun registration forms into a pile of ash.

The group, known as the NY2A Grassroots Coalition, held a Safe Act Forum at the Elks Banquet Hall in Saratoga County, where they discussed the “importance of not registering firearms” with the state.  Methods of circumventing the SAFE act through civil disobedience and modification to existing firearms were also discussed, a legally modified AR-15 was raffled off, and gun registration forms were burnt in protest.

The day began with Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino, declaring at a Saratoga gun show that he “will repeal the SAFE Act.”

When Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino visited the gun show at the City Center Sunday afternoon, he knew how to get the crowd’s attention.

“If I am elected governor, I will repeal the SAFE Act,” Astorino boomed into the mic during his introduction, receiving a hearty response from attendees who had momentarily paused from browsing the show’s booths to listen to his short speech.

“(Gov. Cuomo) took away your rights, why don’t you take away his job?” was another suggestion popular with the gun show crowd.

After the show, Republican congressional candidate Elise Stefanik (NY-21) packed up her booth and brought her group over to the elks lodge where another group was placing registration cards on a barbecue and turning them to ash.
