New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act – better known as the SAFE Act – has an opponent in the Newfield Town Council.
On Thursday night, the Newfield Town Council added its name to a growing list of New York municipalities that have urged the state to repeal the controversial legislation that was passed in January. The council voted unanimously in opposing the SAFE Act on the grounds that the law was rushed through the state legislature and passed with little public input. The approved town resolution states that the SAFE Act ultimately fails to address the apparent legal leniency granted to those who commit gun crimes.
Newfield requests the state replace the SAFE Act with reasonable legislation that doesn’t infringe on Second Amendment rights or push enforcement costs down to the local level.
