More than 90 people turned out to tell the Essex County Board of Supervisors the State SAFE Act needs to be repealed.
The gun-control measure was highly opposed by the majority of those who packed the Old County Courthouse on Monday night, many of them members of local sportsmen’s clubs.
And the Board of Supervisors decided they also want it gone.
After hearing from those present, the board voted 15 to 2 to ask for repeal of the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, and unanimously oppose proposed legislation that would require gun owners to have $1 million liability insurance policies.
Only Supervisors Edward Hatch (D-Willsboro) and Daniel Connell (D-Westport) voted against repeal, with Supervisor Randy Preston (I-Wilmington) absent.
