    Been reading the forum for a while, but finally signed up to chime in. As the title of the post says, I'm in Tompkins County. I'm an NRA member, what few of us there are here, and while I don't hunt, I enjoy shooting paper immensely. I also shoot (record) and produce videos of various types.

    I was wrong. I said the vote would be 11-4 in favor of it. It was 10-5 to support the unconstitutional SA.
