Supervisors vote to defy SAFE Act
Schoharie County supervisors will be informing state officials by mail that the county will not spend a dime enforcing the state’s new gun control law.
Anger and resentment have been growing in the rural county ever since Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Legislature rushed passage of the NY SAFE Act in January with no debate or public hearings, and county officials had harsh words for the law they see as both an unfunded mandate and intrusion on people’s rights.
Supervisor Larry Bradt, R-Carlisle, offered two resolutions during the board’s monthly meeting Friday, one to defy enforcement of the law and the other to demand Assemblyman Peter Lopez, R-Schoharie, and Sen. James Seward, R-Oneonta, vote “no” on any state budget proposal that includes money to enforce the law.
Both were approved following discussion that drew applause from residents attending the meeting.
