22 states to challenge New York's SAFE Act
ALBANY -- 22 states are challenging New York's controversial SAFE Act.
Some lawmakers, outside New York, question its constitutionality.
They are focusing specifically on New York's ban on on semi-automatic weapons.
The SAFE Act only affects New York, but other state leaders claim it sets a concerning precedent.
They are filing a brief in an appellate court.
In December, a federal judge upheld most of Governor Cuomo's gun legislation.
The judge rejected arguments that it violates Second Amendment right.
