Town of Macedon resolution opposing the SAFE Act passed unanimously.
RESOLUTION NO. 63 (2013)
RESOLUTION TO GOVERNOR CUOMO OPPOSING THE PROCESS & ENACTMENT OF THE NEW YORK 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, as well as New York State Civil Rights Law, and
Whereas, this legislation fails to offer any meaningful solutions to gun violence and places increased burdens on the law abiding citizens; and
Whereas, in our opinion, there was no reason for the Governor to use a message of necessity to bring this bill to vote immediately and bypass the three day maturing process for all legislation; now, therefore, be it
Resolved, the Town of Macedon Town Board hereby opposes, and requests the repeal of, the New York State Safe Act as we consider such law to be unnecessary and beyond lawful legislative authority granted to our State Representatives.
