ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York law enforcement authorities are continuing their visits across upstate to explain the state's new, stricter gun control law.

The series includes a meeting at the Clarence Town Library Tuesday at noon, and another in Rochester, at the Public Safety Building on Exchange St. today at 5.
There are also sessions Tuesday in Endwell, Lake Placid, and Ithaca. On Wednesday, there will be forums in Oswego, Lafayette and Schenectady.
The meetings are part of an effort to educate gun owners on the new law which restricts use of certain weapons, limits the amount of ammunition in a magazine, and changes registration requirements.
The new law adopted earlier this month after the Newtown school massacre and West Webster firefighter ambush also requires background checks for ammunition purchases.
Here's the State's Information Site, for gun owners who have questions about the new law.
