Town of Potsdam resolution opposing the NY SAFE act



MOTION made by Councilman Zagrobelny and second by Councilwoman Rivezzi to approve following resolution

WHEREAS, we the board members of the Town of Potsdam, NY believe the New York State Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act (SAFE Act) was hastily passed and reflects many flaws and poorly considered aspects, and

Whereas, we feel there is a need for a thoughtful debate on the matter of restrictions on the use of firearms in our society,

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Potsdam Town Board request the our New York State Representatives convene public hearings to gain information which would be used to amend, replace, and repair flaws in the SAFE ACT, and

Be it further resolved that the Potsdam Town Board directs the Town Clerk to send this resolution to the Governor and Assembly and Senate representatives.
