    Pizza deliveryman opens fire to fend off attackers

    Pizza deliveryman opens fire to fend off attackers - A pizza deliveryman attacked by four people attempting to rob him opened fire, hitting an 18-year-old man who is now in police custody.  Buffalo Police say the driver was attempting to make a delivery at 474 Cornwall around 10:30 p.m. on Monday when he was attacked by four assailants who began beating him on the head and body with an unknown object.  The deliveryman drew his legally registered handgun and opened fire, hitting an 18-year-old man, who is now in police custody at ECMC and is listed in fair condition.  The other three attackers fled and remain at-large.  Police did not say if the driver suffered any serious injuries in the assault.


    Assault weapon deadline arrives

    Assault weapon deadline arrives - New Yorkers are required to register their assault weapons under the state’s new gun-control law today — or face time behind bars.  Today is the deadline for state residents who own guns labeled as assault weapons under the New York SAFE Act to register them with the state. Assault weapons are those with a “military-style feature” such as a detachable magazine, pistol grip or telescoping stock.  If gun owners fail to register their firearms today, they could be charged with a class A misdemeanor and spend up to a year in county jail. If an individual unintentionally fails to register, a 30-day amnesty period will be extended, according to the New York State Police.


    Growing pains in gun groups

    Growing pains in gun groups - Tom King, the president of the state's largest and oldest pro-gun group, has never had a bigger pulpit — and he's never had so many of his fellow believers yelling at him.  The president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association saw its membership nearly double last year to more than 41,000 after passage of the state's most divisive gun control law in decades, making it the nation's largest state affiliate of the powerful National Rifle Association.

    As SAFE Act deadline approaches, some gun owners refuse to comply - A deadline on the controversial SAFE Act is quickly approaching.  It requires some gun owners to register their rifles through a page on the State Police website but some people have vowed not to.  This is about a week after supporters and opponents of the SAFE Act both rallied at the Capitol.
