In the midst of all the controversy about the tighter gun laws in New York, Governor Cuomo is announcing over $130,000 being given out to shooting ranges.

The money comes as part of the "New York Open for Fishing and Hunting Initiative". One hundred thirty five thousand dollars in grants will be going to 13 shooting ranges, including $6,700 to the Lima Gun Club in Livingston County.

State leaders say the hunting and fishing programs help to make people more familiar with guns and archery in order to promote safe and ethical hunting in New York.
