A resolution declaring opposition to the state’s new gun-control law has been bypassed the Town Board in favor of one that calls on the state to amend portions of the legislation.
During a board meeting Wednesday, Town Supervisor Kelly Myers introduced a resolution opposing provisions of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act and the way it was adopted by state lawmakers.
Rather than voting on that proposal, though, the board opted for an amended resolution offered by Councilman Bruce Leighton. It asks the state to amend the SAFE Act to address issues of enforcement and financial hardship caused by any unfunded mandates, as well as repeal any parts of the act that infringe upon the right to bear arms.
