Rifle group tries to halt SAFE Act – The New York Rifle and Pistol Association plans to take legal action Monday to stop New York’s new gun-control measures.  Association President Thomas King and state Assemblyman Marc Butler talked about the legal effort with about 100 local gun owners and gun-rights advocates at the Pine Tree Rifle Club on Wednesday.  King said his group will file a petition for a temporary restraining order against the SAFE Act in federal court in Buffalo.
