Dutchess legislators join call for repeal of NY SAFE

Dutchess legislators join call for repeal of NY SAFE – Most of the almost four-hour Dutchess County Legislature meeting Monday night was spent on a measure that carries no force of law, but is emotionally charged.  It was the memorializing resolution asking the state legislature to repeal NY SAFE, the state gun control measure that several legislators and many public speakers said was rushed through in haste, during a post-midnight session in Albany.  The public comment was heavily in support of the resolution, but there were also supporters of NY SAFE.  Many who said NY SAFE should be left intact cited polls purportedly showing 65 percent of citizens surveyed also supporting the gun restrictions.
