Sportsmen Unhappy With Gun Control Law


A portion of the Second Amendment is written out at the Watertown Sportsman Club.

"Second amendment is the right to keep and and bear arms, and it shall not be infringed," said William Scott, Jr.

It's a  message directed at New York state lawmakers.

"Getting forms of treason started," Scott said.

"I think that's what we need to do here in New York state for anybody who voted on these bills, because they're breaking the law by trying to abolish the Second Amendment."

That may sound extreme, but Scott doesn't think so, saying New York's gun safety law creates more problems than solves them.

Scott says lawmakers rushed to judgment after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

"They didn't even get any details or anything, or talk to anybody from sportsman clubs or other organizations," he said.

It's a sentiment the National Rifle Association agrees with, releasing a statement that reads, in part: "Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York state Legislature orchestrated a secretive end-run around the legislative and democratic process and passed sweeping anti-gun measures."

Scott says he hopes groups like the NRA can help.

Although Cuomo has signed the bill, according to Scott, the battle over gun control  is far from over.
