The Glenville Town Board is backing repeal of the New York SAFE Act.
More than 60 people packed Town Hall on Wednesday to request the board approve a resolution asking the state to scrap the law that bans the sale of assaultstyle weapons, caps the number of rounds a magazine can hold at seven, and requires private gun sellers to conduct background checks on prospective buyers.
Mark Storti, a sportsman who is member of two local fish and game clubs, said the law was passed hastily without any feedback from law enforcement and without the opportunity for legislators to even read the bill.
“We believe the New York SAFE Act violates our constitutional rights, infringes on our property rights. It will do very little to safeguard citizens,” he said.
