NRA affiliate wants SAFE Act hearing in Buffalo – The state affiliate of the National Rifle Association has asked a federal judge in Buffalo to schedule a hearing to outline its case in public against New York’s SAFE Act gun control law.  The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association petitioned U.S. District Court Judge William M. Skretny, who is considering the group’s lawsuit against the state over the gun and ammunition crackdown, because it believes oral arguments are justified in the case.
