Otsego County has become one of the first counties in New York to tell the state it does not want its official seal used on a New York State Police web site being created to help gun owners comply with a new mandate that they renew their county-issued pistol permits.
“This would make more work for us,” Sheriff Richard Devlin Jr. told the county Board of Representatives this week before panel voted 13-0, with one abstention, to come against having any county logo or seal on a web site now being set up by state police.
The pistol permit recertification requirement was one of the legs in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s gun-control measure, known as the SAFE Act, which was adopted in Albany last January. Certain features of the law, such as restrictions on the size of ammunition magazines, have proven to be unpopular with some county sheriffs across the state.
