ALBANY, N.Y - Thousands of opponents of New York's new gun control law are gathering at the statehouse to lobby lawmakers and rally against measures they say infringe on their constitutional right to bear arms.
Two lines have stretched through the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany, with demonstrators waiting to pass through checkpoints and metal detectors to enter the Capitol.
Extra state troopers are on duty.
Organizers say the afternoon rally will include an address by National Rifle Association President David Keene.
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.
About 500 opponents rallied outside the Capitol two weeks ago, chanting they won't comply. Opponents plan to sue in an attempt to overturn the law.
