SAFE Act big on Marchione’s agenda

SAFE Act big on Marchione’s agenda – Efforts to repeal the SAFE Act topped Sen. Kathy Marchione’s legislative priorities this year, in addition to initiatives to reform government and support the agricultural industry.  Of the roughly 100 policy-related bills the Halfmoon Republican sponsored, a little more than half stalled in the committee. About 20 passed the Senate but not the Assembly, and another 15 were passed by both chambers.  In addition to an unsuccessful bill to repeal the SAFE Act outright, Marchione also sponsored a series of initiatives to attempt to chip away at portions of the 2013 law that limited magazines to seven rounds, banned the sale of military-style assault weapons and required people who owned them to either register them with State Police or modify... read more

Lack of SAFE Act changes disappoint gun groups – The state Legislature left the Capitol early Friday without making any changes to the controversial gun-control law installed in 2013. After some Senate Republicans ran for office last year vowing to seek a repeal of the gun-control law, they were unable to reach a deal to reform the SAFE Act, drawing the ire of gun-rights groups. “Am I disappointed? Absolutely, and I think the gun owners of New York state are going to be disappointed also,” said Thomas King, the president of the state Rifle & Pistol Association. Senate Republicans passed a bill to make a variety of changes to the measure, which was championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. But Assembly Democrats and Cuomo showed no appetite to follow... read more
