A group representing local governments in Erie County is supporting calls to repeal the state’s new gun- control law.
At its monthly meeting Thursday, the Association of Erie County Governments went on record in opposition to the 2013 New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, commonly known as the NY SAFE Act. The law was approved Jan. 15 by the State Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo the same day.
The association is made up of representative lawmakers from the 25 towns, 16 villages and three cities in Erie County. They represent about 1 million people.
The association approved a resolution that says the SAFE Act is a violation of the Second Amendment of the Constitution and that it infringes on the rights of citizens in the state without due process.
