The town board, like several other New York municipalities, recently passed a resolution supporting the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In doing so, they unanimously protested the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 (NY SAFE Act), which passed both houses of the state legislature on January 15, after which it was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“As a lifetime gun owner, and after thirty-five years as a hunter safety instructor, I thought New York State was a little hasty” in passing the SAFE Act, Councilman Steve Bradley said.
Supervisor Scott Carlsen concurred, saying he believes any proposed change to the Second Amendment deserves public input and hearings.
