Monroe County legislators to oppose N.Y. gun law

Majority members of the Monroe County Legislature are drafting a memorializing resolution to state government leaders in Albany against the controversial new gun restrictions passed in January.

The measure is not a formal vote. Rather, all legislators will have the opportunity to sign on to the letter, which will then be delivered to Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The letter will likely be released early next week, and sent next month, said Majority Leader Anthony Daniele, R-Pittsford. Rochester’s city leaders came out in support of the law last week.

“It’s not a law, it’s not enforceable,” Daniele said. Rather, the letter is being drafted “in hopes that if the entire County Legislature signs onto it, it might hold some weight.”

  1. Thank you to those counties upholding our second amendment and defending
    our constitutional rights.

    We should have learned thru prohibition that the only ones to benefit will
    be the criminals not the law abiding citizens
    Go after the movie and TV industries for their role in creating a violent society don’t go after our individual rights

  2. By supporting the NY SAFE Act you not only are violating the oath of office that you took, but you are violating the Supreme Law of the Land that you swore to defend.

    The SAFE Act is un-Constitutional, PERIOD!!!
