Forum to discuss new gun law

Posted

DEERFIELD — With the hunting season soon approaching, the Oneida Herkimer Chapter of SCOPE will host an informative meeting for gun owners and hunters on the new gun law which took effect on Sept. 1.

The meeting will take place at the Fraternal Order of Eagles on Cosby Manor Road at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12. The event, which is free, will be in the lower level banquet hall. Individuals do not have to be a chapter member to attend. 

Barring any court injunctions, “we want to educate the gun owners and hunters on the new laws and keep them from becoming a felon in the eyes of New York State,” the chapter said in an announcement.

“This meeting is designed to be a non-political meeting and we will try to make it an informative meeting, with a question and answer format,” organizers added. SCOPE is a non-partisan, statewide organization dedicated to preserving the Second Amendment rights of residents.

Local representatives invited to speak include: Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol; Herkimer County Sheriff Scott Scherer; state Sen. Joseph A. Griffo; state Sen. Peter Oberacker; Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon; Assemblyman John Salka; Assemblyman Brian Miller; and Assemblyman Robert Smullen.

Oneida-Herkimer SCOPE hosts candidates and elected officials at each of its meetings allowing the public to hear directly from them, but does not endorse candidates.
