Gun Law Foes Protest In Binghamton

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

People opposed to New York state’s recently-enacted gun regulations demonstrated in downtown Binghamton this afternoon.

John O’Brien of the town of Chenango told WNBF News he helped organize the local event.

O’Brien said hundreds of signatures had been collected to show support for Broome County sheriff David Harder, who has been critical of the new state law.

Some of those opposed to the law held signs at the Court Street roundabout. One of the signs read: “Impeach Cuomo or Repeal NY-Safe Act.”

The Binghamton protest was being held at the same time the State Supreme Court released its decision denying a request for an injunction to block the law.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman praised the court’s action.

Schneiderman said the SAFE Act “enacts significant reforms designed to increase the safety of all New Yorkers, while ensuring constitutional protections to responsible gun owners.”
