$60,000 grass seed being planted at the Capitol - 04/11/13

New York State Office of General Services employees were out in the West Capital Park, Monday, planting grass seed on the dirt patches. Last week an OGS spokesman said the pro-gun rally held outside the Capitol, back in February, caused $30,000 in damage and will take another $30,000 to repair.

Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin,R-Melrose, was critical of the OGS figures so he wrote a letter to Commissioner RoAnn Destito asking for a line by line breakdown of the costs.

Via CBS6 and my social media pages, many pro-gun enthusiasts fought back on the claim they ruined the lawn. Many said the lawn was already muddy when they arrive on a rainy February 28th day when the rally was held.

State police estimated the crowd that day at "just over 5,000 at it's peak".
