About Wayne County SCOPE

Wayne County SCOPE is a Chapter of S.C.O.P.E NY, a New York State not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation of the Second Amendment Rights of New York State Citizens.

SCOPE will oppose, with all its resources, any proposal that is not based on sound technical grounds or that infringes on the rights of firearms owners for the purpose of promoting a political philosophy, advancing a social theory, or as an emotional response and is not based on clear Constitutional grounds.


The Shooter’s Committee on Political Education was founded in 1965 by a group of firearms owners in western New York.  SCOPE is a civil rights organization focused on the protection and preservation of the right of firearms ownership as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

It does not align itself with any political party nor does it endorse any candidates for elective office.  Our function is to counter assaults on the right of firearms ownership.  This entails providing legislators and executives with timely and accurate information to support sound decisions.

SCOPE'S Mission

SCOPE’s purpose is to maintain the right of individuals to own and use firearms for lawful purposes.  Inform members about anti-gun / gun owner legislation.

Stop anti-gun / gun owner legislation in New York State.  Educate the public on the positive aspects of firearm ownership, and their Second Amendment rights.
