The Oswego County Legislature voted 25-0 for a resolution urging the repeal of the NY SAFE Act, joining a growing list of counties that have denounced New York state’s controversial gun law.
“We were just standing up for our constituents,” Terry Wilbur, a legislator from Hannibal, said Thursday.
Wilbur, who sponsored the resolution, said he was pleased with the results, and that the resolution would send a clear message to state officials in Albany.
Oswego isn’t the first county in the area to come out against the SAFE Act. Madison and Herkimer counties have already passed similar resolutions.
