Town of Boston Board asks that SAFE Act be reversed

After weeks of anticipation, the Boston Town Board held a public hearing regarding the New York State Safe Act in an effort to hear the opinions of town residents regarding the recent state legislation.

Several residents in attendance, including Councilman Jay Boardway, made it very clear where they stand in relation to the government’s attempt to regulate the use of firearms in this state.


Finally, the board formally resoled “that the town board of the town of Boston urgently ask (Cuomo) and the legislative leaders to suspend this law as soon as possible and to look at all the aspects of gun control using the proper legal procedure to bring about a law that will address gun control in a more logical manner, focusing on the real issue related to gun control – a law that will strengthen the effect on public safety and not infringe upon our constitutional rights.”

This resolution was unanimously approved by the board and was to be forwarded to Cuomo, Honorable Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, Majority Leader of Independent Democratic Caucus Jeff Klein, Honorable Senate Minority Leader John Sampson, Honorable Speaker of the Assembly Sheldon Silver, Honorable Leader of the Assembly Ron Canestrari, Honorable Minority Leader of the Assembly Brian Kolb and the Western New York Delegation and Erie County Legislators.
