The Stockport Town Board has voted unanimously on a resolution calling for the repeal of the NY SAFE Act, the sweeping gun control legislation passed by the State Legislature in January.
The resolution passed by the board charges that the state law curtails constitutional rights and that the town board “affirms support for the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and opposes attempts to infringe on those rights.”
In addition, the resolution takes issue with the state legislation for being approved with “scant public notice, very little public debate or review.” It further states that the town board “believes that an issue of this seriousness and effect should have been granted a respectful and appropriate period of debate, review and consideration.”
