NORTH COLLINS, NY - There was another update in Western New York about efforts to overturn the State's Gun Control law.

Various public officials, lawmakers, and attorneys gathered in North Collins on Saturday to brief residents on the SAFE Act.

There was also some discussion on the federal lawsuit aimed at the law with the contention that it is unconstitutional.

Organizers of the meeting hope to get registered gun owners to vote in future elections against Governor Cuomo and other lawmakers who voted for the SAFE Act.

Supporters of the measure counter that it will cut gun violence. 

Also on Saturday, the New York attorney general's office announced that it is sponsoring a statewide gun buyback program where people can turn in weapons for debit cards.

That's similar to the program that we've seen locally here run by the City of Buffalo for years.

Officials will begin accepting unloaded working and broken guns locally in Cheektowaga in a few weeks.
