Gun permit issue pulled from agenda

Gun permit issue pulled from agenda – After questions were raised this week during a caucus of the Niagara County Legislature’s Republican majority, the local implementation of a federal law that allows retired police officers to carry concealed firearms without a permit was withdrawn from the agenda. Chairman William L. Ross, C-Wheatfield, said new questions were raised and further study was requested. The measure requires retired officers to pass the same gun safety course that active officers take.
