Gun Rights Advocates Fight Against New Law Signed By Cuomo – A gun advocacy group took the first step Tuesday to legally halting the newly-signed gun laws for New York state. As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, the New York Rifle and Pistol Association said its position is clear. “We believe that (Gov. Andrew) Cuomo’s gun law is a blatant infringement on our Second Amendment rights,” said Jacob Rieper, vice president of legislative and political affairs for the group.
