NORWICH—A locally grown grass roots organization tasked with educating and defending community members with regard to Second Amendment protection will be hosting its second annual chili dinner fundraiser this Saturday.
The Chenango County Shooters Committee On Political Education (SCOPE) is the Second Amendment defense organization hosting the event to seek support of community, law enforcement and local legislature while continuing its mission of defending the rights of N.Y. State gun owners.
“We will be presenting SCOPE's President, Steven Alstadt, with a check which will go toward the litigation costs regarding the Safe Act,” said Chris Naylor, a spokesperson with the organization. “Legal representative Paloma Capanna will also be there,” said Naylor. “She is an attorney representing several individuals and organizations whose rights have been infringed upon.”
Naylor indicated that the most recent guest speaker of a SCOPE fundraiser was Broome County Undersheriff Fred Akshar, who recently won the candidate seat for New York's 52nd Senate District.
