The NY SAFE Act, with its draconian firearms restrictions, has incited heated debate and a public outcry from law-abiding gun owners across New York. Albany’s actions outraged many citizens of rural Tioga County, which has a long history of hunting and self-reliance. The Tioga County Legislature spoke for them on Feb. 12, 2013 by passing a resolution protesting the process used to pass the NY SAFE Act and provisions in the law.
“The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed as an individual right under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the resolution stated, “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 Tioga County.”
