It looks like even though Governor Cuomo got his way when the NY SAFE Act was passed (without even being read by the legislature), the district attorneys in New York are following through with their threatened refusal to prosecute anyone under the new laws. A couple days ago a man was arrested for having two “extra” bullets in his magazine above the new legal limit. Now WNYT is reporting that the district attorney in charge of prosecuting the case has indeed refused to go forward with the charges . . .
The Columbia County District Attorney is making good on a promise not to prosecute a man arrested under the SAFE Act.
DA Paul Czajka told NewsChannel 13 he would not prosecute Gregory Dean Jr.
Dean was pulled over earlier this month after police say the light over his license plate was out.
Police say he also had a gun in his car.
While they say it was possessed legally, it had nine rounds of ammunition, which exceeds the state’s new limit of seven rounds.
