JOHNSTOWN -- Scores of prospective attendees were turned away Monday night, but 300 concerned gun owners from Fulton and Montgomery counties and beyond managed to converged on the Pine Tree Rifle Club for a standing-room only informational public session on Governor Andrew Cuomo's new gun control law, called the SAFE Act.

Led by Assemblyman Marc Butler and NYS Rifle and Pistol Association President and NRA Board Member Tom King, along with Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey an attempt was made to relay accurate information, and field questions from the concerned citizens.

Most importantly coming from the informational session was the announcement from King that within 10 days, briefs will be legally filed for a comprehensive lawsuit against Cuomo's SAFE Act law and its passage.

As of Monday night, no more details were to be released other than it was to be comprehensive, with experienced attorneys, and the potential of reaching the State Supreme Court.

"This is going to be a landmark case," said King.

Butler expressed his concern over the quick bill passage on the very first day back in session.

"The process of this law was terrible, and the end result is even worse," said Butler, claiming that the opposition to the law is not calming down.

Butler and Lorey were praised for their firm stance on behalf of the concerns of the citizens of Fulton County.

Another information public session will be held in Fulton County due to the enormous response. Butler said they may have to review the plan for Wednesday night's scheduled Herkimer County event at the Salisbury Ridgerunners Club in Salisbury. The same overwhelming response is expected.
