About 25 people gathered in Holley to fire shots in protest of the NY SAFE Act on Saturday. Gun owners and gun clubs throughout New York joined for the “The Shot Heard Round New York,” an event that was timed near the one-year anniversary of the SAFE Act being approved by the State Legislature and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The Holley group met in the backyard of Jeremy and Gia Arnold, who are leaders of New York Revolution, a Second Amendment group that started after the SAFE Act was passed.

New York Revolution held about 25 events  around the state, where gun owners joined at rod and gun clubs or in back yards to fire the symbolic shot.

“At noon we shot one safe and legal round to symbolize we are still fighting and still remember,” said Gia Arnold, state coordinator of NYR.

The group would like to help unseat Cuomo in this November’s election for governor.
