A few hundred people have gathered at New York's state capitol building in Albany to press for repeal of the state's tough new gun laws.

The coalition of conservative groups says it was set to deliver 400,000 postcards to members of the Assembly calling to roll back the NYSAFE act.

The law, enacted a month after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre, limits the number of rounds in a magazine, bans the sale of assault-style weapons and calls for stricter background check.
 
The group of protesters is encouraging people to register to vote, join a political party and become active in political campaigns. They say the goal is to change the law from within the system.
