Anti-Gun advocates storm Capitol
Politics

New Yorkers against gun violence lobbied lawmakers in Albany today.

They are demanding an immediate withdrawal of a bill that would allow the use of deadly force to defend against an intruder or attacker.

They say passage of this bill will open the door to vigilante justice - an issue that has gained attention since the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida.

The group is also pushing for the passage of a micro-stamping bill.

That would require a stamp on shell casings which they say would make it easier for investigators to track down criminals after a shooting.
