Orleans Legislature will again push for repeal of SAFE Act

Orleans Legislature will again push for repeal of SAFE Act – The Orleans County Legislature has gone on the record several times the past two years, stating its opposition to the SAFE Act, a controversial gun control measure approved by the State Legislature and Gov. Cuomo in January 2013. With a new legislative season beginning in the state capital, and with Gov. Cuomo starting his second term, county legislators plan on again stating their support for repeal of the “Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement” Act. Two state senators, Michael Nozzolio and Katherine Marchione, have already introduced legislation in the State Senate to repeal all of the legislation or parts of it. The County Legislature will meet at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the County Clerks Building at 3 South Main St. An agenda for the meeting includes a resolution that supports repeal of the SAFE Act.
