Among Rabbitts concerns about the law are that after March 16, police and peace officers carrying a weapon on school grounds would be subject to prosecution unless they have written permission from the school; they would be required to register their weapons; and would be limited to seven-round magazines in the same manner as civilians.

I hope things are better for you and your family, DJ. I haven’t been around much on FR - been sick, busy, weird internet - lather, rinse and repeat...
I’ve been thinking about you and really hoped your situation was good now.
Here’s another one (found these on another site). There is a video but my comp. is needs a plug in to watch a lot of videos so I haven’t seen the one below. I don’t like watching videos much but the ones above I did.
Gun meeting draws anger in Clarence

CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB) - In Clarence, tempers flared as gun-owners met with state officials to talk about the New York SAFE act.
But not everyone was there to argue against the law. Some were there to get answers.
The Clarence library was packed. 200 people in an area meant to hold 90. Many admitted they were there just to protest. But some, while opposed to the law, just wanted questions answered.
The point of the meeting was to answer questions about New York State’s new restrictions to gun ownership.
And that’s why Vincent Dewind was there.
“Some came to protest. I came to learn about the law,” he said.
He by no means supports the law.
“The state passed an ill-conceived law that they haven’t fully thought through. And there will have to be some serious changes to it,” Dewind says.
But he found the often-raucous 2.5-hour meeting helpful. Many people had specific questions about weapons they own — whether New York would classify them as assault-style.
