The town of Fenner has joined the ranks of an increasing number of municipalities around New York to formally oppose the state’s recent gun restriction law — and recently received support for its move from local Assemblyman Bill Magee.
The Fenner Town Board approved Resolution No. 2, “Opposing the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Act of 2013” at its regular February meeting.
The resolution declares the law “fundamentally alters or abridges the right to keep and bear arms without addressing the problem of gun violence,” that it creates an environment hostile to gun manufacture and ownership and imposes burdensome new regulations on legal gun owners. It calls upon the state legislature and the governor to “annul this ill-conceived and poorly drafted statute.”
