Attention outdoor sportsmen and hunters, there's going to be a Legislative Awareness Rally in Albany Jan. 12. Bus transportation has been arranged by SCOPE Genesee County chapter and the Shooter's Committee on Political Education of New York.
Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb invites those concerned about the right to keep and bear firearms, hunting and shooting sports in New York to attend this statewide effort. The bus is limited to 56 travelers, so car pooling to the rally is encouraged.
The keynote speaker at the rally will be Wayne Lapierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association.
The bus ride costs $25. Sign up at either of the departure locations, Batavia Marine in Batavia, or Sheard's Antiques and Guns in Bergen.
The bus departs from Batavia Marine, 411 W. Main St., at 4:10 a.m. and from Sheard's in Bergen, 7451 S. Lake Road -- Route 19, at 4:50 a.m.
Once at the state capitol, participants will gather in the Lobby Well of the Legislative Office Building at 9 a.m.
Departure back to Genesee County is at 1:30 p.m.
