By 15-1 vote, the Wyoming County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a resolution calling on New York State to repeal controversial gun control laws, contained in the SAFE Act.
“It’s got no teeth,” acknowledged Board of Supervisors Chairman A.D. Berwanger of Arcade, regarding what is a “memorializing resolution,” which has no power of law but does put the Board of Supervisors on the record as a body in opposition to the SAFE Act.
The measure, passed by state legislators as a part of a Message of Necessity from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was strongly criticized by lawmakers in the rural upstate county.
