Opponents of NY gun law rally in Albany

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - National Rifle Association President David Keene has told thousands of opponents of New York's new gun control law that his group will help ensure the Second Amendment rights passed down to them will be passed on to future generations.

Cheered by the throng that filled the park west of the Capitol, many arriving on buses Thursday from across the state, Keene says they've lost battles before over the constitutional right to bear arms but will not lose the war.

The new law sets a seven-bullet limit on magazines, tightens the definition of illegal "assault weapons" and requires owners of formerly legal semi-automatic guns to register them.

The crowd broke into chants at various times, saying they will not comply and that Gov. Andrew Cuomo, its sponsor, must go.
