Trial gets underway next week for the first person charged with violating New York's strict gun-control law.
33 year old Ben Wassell of western New York is accused of selling illegally modified semi-automatic rifles. Jury selection begins March 4 in Chautauqua County Court.

The state attorney general's office is handling the SAFE Act prosecution.

Two Chautauqua County judges recused themselves because they're members of the NRA. An Erie County judge will preside.
