Others had messages such as: “If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words” or “I’m a mom and grandmother here to protect and defend their future.”One sign was especially pertinent: “Founded in 1816: Remington stays. Cuomo goes!”The crowd could be heard chanting, “We will not comply!” at one point and later “Cuomo’s gotta go!”
