On Monday, the Hoosick town board unanimously passed a similar resolution, based on a bill from the Republican-controlled state Assembly. Both local Assemblymen Tony Jordan and Steven McLaughlin have spoken out in opposition to the law, with McLaughlin apologizing earlier this month after saying Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini would “be proud” of the way the gun control measure was passed.
Hoosick’s resolution called the state law “rash (and) confusing” and an infringement on the constitutional right to bear arms, and called for less restrictive measures like better mental health, anti-bullying, and enforcement of existing laws. The resolution ended by stating there’s “no proven corollary between firearm control and a reduction in crime.”
There was no discussion Monday other than a reading of the resolution, before which town Supervisor Keith Cipperly said he personally believed the state law infringed on the Second Amendment.
