Town of Elbridge resolution opposing NY SAFE


Introduced by the Elbridge Town Board


WHEREAS, the New York State Legislature recently enacted and Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the New York State Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 (NY SAFE ACT) and

WHEREAS, the Governor Andrew Cuomo enacted said law swiftly and without regard of the concerns or opinions of the Citizens of NY State and

WHEREAS, the haste of our State Legislature and Governor passing this Law has resulted in a Law which is flawed and affects our State and local Law enforcement officers in performing their duties and

WHEREAS, the NY SAFE ACT is in direct contradiction of our rights under the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and limits the rights of the Citizens of NY State to protect themselves as allowed under this Constitution from this very type of tyranny and

WHEREAS, because of this law Gun Manufacturers are now refusing to sell their Firearms to local Law Enforcement Agencies within States which do not allow the Citizens of these States the right to own and or bare Firearms as protected by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and

WHEREAS, the definition of Assault Weapons as pertained in the NY SAFE ACT of 2013 is opinionated and without merit and

WHEREAS, the Statistical history of murders committed in NY State show this Law would have little or no effect on saving life’s and

WHEREAS, this Law affects the rights of thousands of Honest Law Abiding Citizens that own and use the Firearms that this Law would make illegal and cause for mandatory registration of Firearms and or Magazines that have been used for many years by the citizens of NY State without incident and in fact be punishing these Law Abiding Citizens for fear of the actions of a few and

WHEREAS, this law will have no affect on the Criminally Insane or the people of this State that wish to do harm onto others with the use of a Firearm as a weapon as there is no regard for Laws, Regulations, or Loss of Life now when a Crime is committed with a unlawful Firearm


SO BE IT RESOLVED that the Town of Elbridge Town Board respectfully submit to the Governor of the State of New York Andrew Cuomo to repeal the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 (NY SAFE ACT) and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this Resolution be sent Certified to our Onondaga County Executive Joannie Mahoney, Onondaga County Legislator Derek Shepard, Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh, NY State Senator John DeFrancisco, Assemblyman Gary Finch, US Senator Charles Schumer, US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and NYS Assembly Leader Sheldon Silver, NYS State Senate Leader Dean Skelos, Congressman Daniel Maffei and the Association of Towns.
