Herkimer County isn’t going to associate any of its logos with the SAFE Act.
The county Legislature recently voted 13-2, with two absentees, to oppose the use of the Herkimer County seal or logo in connection to the pistol permit recertification put in place by the state’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act.
Chairman of the Legislature Vincent Bono, R-Schuyler, said it was brought forth by county Sheriff Christopher Farber and many counties are enacting the same resolution.
“Whenever someone goes through the New York SAFE Act resolution, it will ask which county (they’re from),” he said. “It uses the county logo. We don’t want our county affiliated with the SAFE Act.”
