Essex County grapples with new gun law – The Essex County Board of Supervisors plans to take a stance on New York’s new gun law, but not before lawmakers take the time to review it and draft a detailed response.  Meanwhile, neighboring Franklin County legislators personally oppose the gun law but plan to hold public meetings on it before adopting a position.  These are two of only a few counties statewide that haven’t passed formal resolutions opposing the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act.
