Breakfast talk in Albany today revolved around the Second Amendment, archery and other outdoor activities, as Assemblyman George Amedore, R-Rotterdam, helped host the New York Legislative Sportsmen's Caucus.

“This morning’s breakfast was a huge success in keeping the business of sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts at the forefront of our legislative discussions,” Amedore said in a press release.

At the event, Amedore touted the passage of a bill that lowers the age for youth participation in archery hunting and recreation. That bill is currently waiting for the signature of Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Amedore said, “Now, those of us who enjoy the skilled art of archery will be able to spend quality time with our kids at a younger age sharing this family tradition.”

The organizations sponsoring the event were: the Conservation Alliance New York, New York State Conservation Council Inc., New York State Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Wild turkey Federation.

Also represented at the breakfast were numerous other groups including the New York Coalition of Recreational Fishermen.
