Opposition to New York SAFE Act Grows

(courtesy nysaferesolutions.com)

I know what you’re thinking: where were all these people when the SAFE Act was hurtling through the Empire State legislature, exploiting the post-Sandy Hook spree killing hysteria? Remember that their elected representatives had twenty minutes to read the Act before they voted on it. And that Governor Andrew Cuomo used his emergency powers to short-circuit New Yorkers’ Constitutional right to a three-day “cooling off” period between a bill’s passage and the Governor’s signature. And that New York is a blue state only because of the Big Apple and its Democratic satellites. Anyway, New York gun owners are plenty pissed now; they’re not backwards about coming forwards. Make the jump for the most recent list of NY counties, towns, law enforcement organizations and county clerk (singular) that have passed resolutions against the Act. As my father used to say, that and 25 cents will get you downtown. Back in the day . . .
