22 states to challenge New York's SAFE Act

ALBANY -- 22 states are challenging New York's controversial SAFE Act.

Some lawmakers, outside New York, question its constitutionality.

They are focusing specifically on New York's ban on on semi-automatic weapons.

The SAFE Act only affects New York, but other state leaders claim it sets a concerning precedent.

They are filing a brief in an appellate court.

In December, a federal judge upheld most of Governor Cuomo's gun legislation.

The judge rejected arguments that it violates Second Amendment right.
