RESOLUTION OPPOSING THE USE OF THE OFFICIAL NAME, SEAL, LETTERHEAD AND AUTHORITY OF THE COUNTY OF ORANGE AND THE NAME AND LIKENESS OF COUNTY ELECTED OFFICIALS WITHOUT THE EXPRESSED WRITTEN CONSENT OF THE COUNTY OF ORANGE.

WHEREAS, Chapter 1 of the laws of 2013, known as the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act (“NY SAFE Act”) was signed into law by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on January 15, 2013. The NY SAFE Act amends various provisions of New York Law in relation to firearms and ammunition; and

WHEREAS, the Orange County Legislature has vehemently opposed the NY SAFE Act, by Resolutions Nos. 50, 72 and 233 of 2013, (attached hereto and made a part hereof), given its impact on: (i) an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, (ii) the undue burdens the NY SAFE ACT places on local governments to implement its provisions, and (iii) the lack of state funding; and

WHEREAS, it has come to this Legislature’s attention that New York State agencies have expressed their intention to issue pistol permit “recertification” notices utilizing the seals of the respective counties of residence of pistol permit holders; and

WHEREAS, the New York Sate Association of County Clerks and many counties have gone on record opposing the New York State’s unauthorized use of their county seals and the name and likeness of county elected officials, without consent, for purposes of implementing the NY SAFE ACT; and

WHEREAS, Orange County Local Law No. 11 of 1999, entitled “A Local Law Regulating the Use of the Official Name, Seal and Authority of the County of Orange,” prohibits the use of any official county position, or title or the use of name, seal, flag, title, letterhead, symbols, property, facilities or resources of the government of the County of Orange for any private or “non-county purpose” or in connection with any private or non-county function, . . . ,” without prior authorization.

NOW THEREFORE, be it

RESOLVED, that the Orange County Legislature does hereby oppose the use of the Orange County official name, seal, letterhead and authority of the County of Orange and the name and likeness of county elected officials without the expressed written consent of the County of Orange; and be it further

Motion Made By Mr. Jordan RESOLUTION NO. 022

RESOLUTION DENYING THE USE OF THE ONONDAGA COUNTY SEAL OR ANY OTHER MARKS IDENTIFYING THE COUNTY BY THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF ONONDAGA COUNTY

WHEREAS, the NY SAFE Act (Chapter I of the Laws of 2013) amended various provisions of New York Law in relation to firearms and ammunition; and

WHEREAS, by Resolution No. 45-2013, this Onondaga County Legislature did indicate its opposition to the NY SAFE Act and called for its immediate repeal, finding that such legislation improperly infringed upon the constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights of county residents, failed to follow the statutorily prescribed process for passage, and created additional unfunded mandates for counties; and

WHEREAS, by its own terms, the NY SAFE Act requires the New York State Police to administer the recertification process for pistol licenses and to send out a notice to such license holders, and it is the understanding of this Onondaga County Legislature that some agencies of the State of New York have expressed the intention to issue pistol permit recertification notices utilizing the seals of the respective counties of residence of pistol permit holders, including seals and identification marks belonging to Onondaga County; and

WHEREAS, such seals and identification marks are the exclusive property of Onondaga County, to be used only for county purposes at the direction of the appropriate Onondaga County officials; and

WHEREAS, the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office and the Onondaga County Clerk have also expressed concern with the proposed use of such seals and identification marks by the New York State Police in the recertification process; now, therefore be it

RESOLVED, that this Onondaga County Legislature objects strongly and forcefully to the use of the several seals and identification marks belonging to Onondaga County by the State of New York and its agencies; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that this Onondaga County Legislature denies the State of New York and its agencies permission to use the name, letterhead, address, seal and any other mark identifying an Onondaga County official for any purpose, including, but not limited to, correspondence with legal and registered gun owners regarding permit recertification or for any other purpose associated with the SAFE Act and its enforcement; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Clerk of this Onondaga County Legislature is directed to cause copies of this resolution to be transmitted to the Governor of the State of New York, the Superintendent of the New York State Police, the several legislators representing Onondaga County at the state level, and to the legislature of every county located within the State of New York.
