Livingston Board of Supervisors seeks repeal of SAFE Act

Livingston Board of Supervisors seeks repeal of SAFE Act – The Livingston County Board of Supervisors has added its voice to a growing number of upstate counties opposing provisions of New York’s recent gun control law, the NY SAFE Act.  The Board, in a resolution approved at its Feb. 13 meeting, said the state’s hasty adoption of the act by the state Legislature and Gov. Andrew Cuomo “acted in contradiction of (a) long, time honored tradition of an open government.”  The resolution called for a repeal of the law or, barring that, County Administrator Ian M. Coyle said, Supervisors would like to see a “repeal and replacement of sections based on the feedback our supervisors have received from their constituents.”
