ALBION – Gun owners wondering how New York’s new gun control laws will effect them are welcome to attend a Monday public forum about the issue.

State Assemblyman Steve Hawley and his staff organized the event at the Albion Middle School from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Hawley will discuss the new law that was passed in January by the State Legislature and Gov. Cuomo.

Hawley opposed the law, and every Orleans County elected board at the village, town and county level has formally gone on the record against the new legislation.

Hawley will be joined at the forum by Orleans County District Attorney Joe Cardone, Orleans County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Tom Drennan, and Steve Alstead from SCOPE, the Shooter’s Committee on Political Education.
