The Elbridge Town Board passed a resolution on Feb. 28 calling for Governor Cuomo to repeal the New York Safe Act.
The New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 gives New York State the most comprehensive gun laws in the nation. It includes tougher assault weapons bans, stronger regulations on ammunition and statewide re-certification of handguns and assault rifles.
The Elbridge Town Board said that the law is “flawed” and affecting the ability of state and local law enforcement to perform their duties. They also claimed the act violates citizen’s Second Amendment rights.
The resolution ended by saying that “the 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.”
