The board unanimously approved a resolution in support of the Second Amendment, and called for repeal of the NY SAFE Act and opposing federal anti-gun measures proposed by the Obama administration. Councilman Ron Winkley, former chief of the Lewiston Police, called recent swift passage of the SAFE Act by the State Legislature and Gov. Andrew Cuomo “ridiculous” and said the Western New York Chief’s Association, along with a number of other law enforcement organizations are staunchly opposed to the measure. Reiter, Councilman Mike Marra and Palmer all voiced similar frustrations on the SAFE Act and its impact on gun rights.
Lewiston joins a number of local municipalities and county legislatures throughout the state in opposing the act.
