Town of Union Vale resolution opposing the NY SAFE act

WHEREAS, the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms is guaranteed as an Individual Right under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution of the State of New York, and;

WHEREAS, the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms for defense of Life, Liberty and Property is regarded as an Inalienable Right by the People of the Town of Union Vale, Dutchess County, New York, and;

WHEREAS, the People of the Town of Union Vale, Dutchess County, New York derive economic benefit from all safe forms of firearms recreation, hunting and shooting conducted within Union Vale using all types of firearms allowable under the Unites States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of New York, and;

WHEREAS, the Union Vale Town Board, being elected to represent the People of Union Vale and being duly sworn by their Oath of Office to uphold the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of New York, and;

WHEREAS, New York State Assembly and the New York State Senate, being elected by the People of the State of New York and being duly sworn by their Oath of Office to uphold the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of New York, and;

WHEREAS, legislation passed by the New York State Assembly and the New York State Senate infringes on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and would ban possession and use of firearms now employed by individual citizens of the Town of Union Vale, for defense of Life, Liberty and Property and would ban possession and use of firearms now employed for the safe forms of firearms recreation, hunting and shooting conducted within the Town of Union Vale, Dutchess County, New York, and;

WHEREAS, the Union Vale Town Board believes there are many other less intrusive means available, other than rash, confusing, and inarticulately drafted firearms laws that would effectively, control, manage, and reduce violence in our society, such as, mental health reforms, anti-bullying rograms for schools, enforcement of existing firearms laws to the fullest extent possible, and proper psychological counseling for those in need or who request it;

NOW, THEREFORE, IT BE AND IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Union Vale Town Board does hereby oppose the enactment of any legislation that would infringe upon the Right of the People to keep and bear arms and consider such laws to be unnecessary and beyond lawful legislative authority granted to our State representatives, as there is no documented correlation between gun control measures and crime reduction.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Senator Charles Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Congressman Christopher Gibson, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Terry Gipson and Assemblyman Kieran Lalor
