On June 10th, the Batavia City Council passed a Resolution Calling for the Repeal of the SAFE Act of 2013 by a vote of 7 to 2.
The two council members that voted against the resolution stated that they felt that there were parts of the legislation that they agreed with and, therefore, could not support a repeal.
One councilwoman, Rose Mary Christian, said that she had been on the fence until the Boston Massacre. She noted that the Boston terrorists committed their horrific act with bombs and that legislation like this would not have prevented it. She also commented that council members did swear an oath to uphold the Constitution.
