The state Rifle & Pistol Association is criticizing Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren for hiring armed security detail after she supported New York's tougher gun-control laws.

The new Democratic mayor said last week that she will hire two armed bodyguards on the city payroll, including one who is her uncle and former security guard for Gov. George Pataki. The gun-rights group said in a statement that Warren's decision "demonstrates the fraudulent nature of the citizen disarmament movement." Warren supported the SAFE Act, the gun-control law passed a year ago. The Rifle & Pistol Association is seeking to have the law overturned in federal court. The group said that if Warren believes the SAFE Act makes New York safer, "then there is no legitimate reason for her to have armed security because the SAFE Act makes her becoming a victim of violent crime impossible. The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association calls upon Mayor Warren to dismiss her security and live with the same sense of comfort she advocated for city residents."
