A rally against New York’s newly-enacted gun control laws drew one of the largest crowds to the state Capitol in recent decades.

The Onondaga County Legislature is expected to join a growing list of county governments cementing their opposition to New York's new, stricter, gun control laws.

If you’re buying a gun, chances are you can find what you want at big box stores like Gander Mountain, Dicks, and Walmart. But New York state is also home to over 1,800 small gun retailers, who are trying to adjust to the state¿s new gun laws.

Two weeks after passing new gun control measures, New York officials are holding public forums around the state to discuss what's in the law.
