The Conclusion to Our Series on Gun Rights Looks at the Emotion Behind Gun Control
Friday, February 19, 2016 11:01 PM EST
While New York State reports that gun violence was down in 2015 from the previous five year average in the state, critics of Governor Andrew Cuomo still want to see the SAFE Act repealed.
At a flag raising ceremony in Binghamton, Congressman Chris Gibson told us that the SAFE Act hurts law-abiding citizens.
A number of Southern Tier residents tell us that they value their rights granted by the second amendment.
Recent mass shootings in places such as Newtown, Connecticut bring about intense emotion in our leaders.
Gibson sees that emotion as what leads to broad gun control legislation.
This also seems to lead to an uptick in those protesting gun control laws and those learning how to use guns.
