ALBANY, N.Y. — Thousands of gun rights supporters rallied outside New York’s Capitol Tuesday to call for the repeal of gun control measures championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, which they intend to use as a rallying cry in the fall elections.
Supporters of New York’s gun control measures – among the most restrictive in the U.S. – held a smaller event inside the Statehouse to announce several new bills, including one that would prohibit anyone from buying more than one gun a month.
Speakers at the larger rally on Empire State Plaza, including celebrity businessman Donald Trump and Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino, said the law prohibiting the sale of some popular guns like the AR-15 goes too far and should be scrapped.
“He took away your rights – you take away his job,” said Astorino, the Westchester County executive, urging those present to channel their opposition into political action.
Trump announced last month that he wouldn’t challenge Cuomo – but it didn’t stop cheers from some attendees who hoisted “Trump for Governor” signs.
