Wyoming Co. wants no role in SAFE Act

Wyoming Co. wants no role in SAFE Act – When state officials contact pistol permit holders about recertifications, they won’t be using Wyoming County imagery.  The county’s Board of Supervisors has denied permission for the state to use the county’s name, seal, letterhead or address during the process — or for any other purpose associated with the N.Y. SAFE Act.  “I guess at first it goes back to the county clerk and the sheriff,” said Chairman Douglas Berwanger. “That seal belongs to them when they take office. They do not support the SAFE Act, and each official brought their concerns to the... read more

Klein: ‘Despicable’ for NYSRPA to link gun control, rape stats

Klein: ‘Despicable’ for NYSRPA to link gun control, rape stats – State Sen. Jeff Klein war of words with the president of the state Rifle & Pistol Association rages on. In a statement, Klein responded to King’s recent statement noting an increase in cases of reported rape in New York City, and pondering whether Klein was aware of the rapist-stopping power of firearms, which King said “put women on equal footing with men and give them the ability to defend themselves against aggressors who are generally larger and stronger than they are.” “Instead of empowering women, Senator Klein has made it more difficult for women to have access to the best and most effective means of personal protection. The results speak for themselves,” King said. (Question: Don’t gun control laws make it more difficult for rapists to have access to the best and most effective weapons? Discuss.) King was responding to Klein’s rebuke of King’s negative reaction to news that New York had received a B+ for its gun control laws from a leading gun control coalition. And yes, we can keep this up as long as they can. In a new statement, Klein took exception to the idea that gun control equals more raped women: “Tom King’s remarks are despicable and have no place in the court of public opinion. For him to claim that our state’s watershed gun control laws are somehow making women more vulnerable to sexual attacks is downright abhorrent. If Tom King was actually serious about protecting women, he would have joined me back in 2003 when I championed the repeal of the statute... read more

Legislature bans use of Rensselaer County seal in SAFE Act enforcement

Legislature bans use of Rensselaer County seal in SAFE Act enforcement – The Rensselaer County Legislature is attempting to further distance itself from the New York SAFE Act by recommending that the county seal and any likeness of it not be used in the law’s enforcement. The Legislature voted 11-6 in favor of the resolution on Tuesday as legislators said barring the use of the seal during enforcement would emphasize it is a state law and not a county one.  “We want residents to have no doubt that if they are receiving any correspondence regarding the NY SAFE Act that it is coming from the state and not the county,” said Thomas Walsh Sr., R-District... read more
