Republicans and one Democrat joined County Executive Maggie Brooks in signing a resolution urging repeal of the SAFE Act.
The resolution, which has no legal bearing but can carry weight in the court of public opinion, called the law an unfunded mandate.
Gun activists packed the chambers and spoke out against the law for more than an hour during a public forum.
A recent Siena College poll showed that while two-thirds of New Yorkers support the SAFE Act, 59 percent of those surveyed upstate oppose it.
