ELMIRA ,N.Y. — The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association got a big donation Monday night, and it comes right from second amendment advocates in Chemung County.

The Chemung County Federation of Sportsmen raised nearly $6,000 for the political group to help repeal the New York Safe Act.

In association with the NRA, the Rifle and Pistol Association will use this money to try and overthrow the legislation in state, and possibly even federal court.

“The Safe Act is a violation of our second amendment rights,” says Federation of Sportsmen member John Akeman.  “It’s clear to me, it’s clear to all true Americans; to sportsmen…it’s just a violation of our rights.”

“It’s just amazing to see how enthusiastic the people are down here and how much they’re supporting the movement to overturn the Safe Act,” said Tom King, president of the NYS Rifle and Pistol Association.

The local sportsmen say they trust that this check for $5,795 dollars will be put to good use.

Akeman says they took it easy this summer, but that the group plans to put the pressure back on the government this winter.
