I don't know if this is open to the public - haven't seen much about it other than this article (Assembly members to hold hearing on NY SAFE Act - City & Region - The Buffalo News ). In any event, even if not open to the public, there's no reason not to contact one of the attendees - particularly if they represent you - and let them know in a reasoned and calm way your thoughts on the subject. Txt of URL (from late June 4): Four local Assembly members are expected to participate in a regional legislative hearing on the NY SAFE Act from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday in Amherst Town Hall, 5583 Main St., Williamsville. Assemblyman Michael Montesano, R-Glen Head, the ranking member of the Assembly's Legislative Oversight Committee, will be joined by Assemblyman Ray Walter, R-Amherst; Assemblywoman Jane Corwin, R-Clarence; Assemblyman David DiPietro, R-East Aurora; and Assemblyman Steve Hawley, R-Batavia. "We will be gathering information from local officials, as well as medical professionals and firearm enthusiasts, in order to provide greater insight on the ways in which the SAFE Act will affect the lives of the citizens of our community," DiPietro reports. The act regulates the use of guns in New York State.
