As previously shared on NY SAFE Resolutions:
Bringing guns into Monroe County owned or operated buildings is prohibited by law. However, there is an exemption that allows “anyone with a permit to carry a concealed gun from having to check his or her firearm at the door.” On Monday February 25th, the Monroe County Legislature’s Agenda/Charter Committee voted against a proposal to amend the law.
This proposal also made an appearance at the Tuesday March 12th Monroe County Legislature meeting. (This was the same night that the resolution opposing the NY SAFE Act was passed.)
According to Anthony J. Daniele, Monroe Couunty Legislature Majority Leader, “You may also be interested to know that Tuesday night, the Democratic Minority attempted to suspend the Rules of the Legislature in order to push through a law that would ban law abiding citizens from exercising their right to carry concealed in County facilities. The Republican Majority voted against, again protecting the rights of law abiding gun owners.”
