Siding with the more than 200 people who packed the Ulster County Legislature’s chambers last month in opposition to new gun regulations, Republicans on the Ulster County Legislature are calling on state lawmakers to repeal the state’s new gun control law.
Majority Leader Kenneth Ronk has introduced a resolution calling for the state to repeal sections of the New York SAFE Act “which infringe upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms,” and to hold hearings to address the issue of gun violence “in a way that will produce meaningful results.”
The resolution is co-sponsored by the entire 12-member GOP caucus in the 23-member Legislature, virtually assuring its clear passage through both legislative committees this week and the full Ulster County Legislature later this month.
