NY Revolution says it won’t demonstrate at Squirrel Slam

HOLLEY – New York Revolution, a group that formed about a year ago to promote Second Amendment rights, will not be demonstrating Saturday against the protestors of the Squirrel Slam fund-raiser for the Holley Fire Department, said Gia Arnold, a state-wide coordinator for the group.

NY Revolution instead will be holding a voter registration drive at the firehall, said Arnold, a Holley resident.

She issued this statement today after an Orleans Hub article on Wednesday said the group would be in Holley on Saturday.

“New York Revolution will not be demonstrating at the Holley Squirrel Slam,” Arnold said. “The Constitutional organization fully supports the protesters’ right to protest, as well as the fire department’s and hunters’ right to participate in the Squirrel Slam. The organization does plan on running a voter registration table inside of the Slam to promote the importance of voting to the local community as they have done in the past at other events.”
