Riga joins communities opposed to new gun laws

Riga joins communities opposed to new gun laws – The town of Riga has joined a small but growing chorus of municipalities vocalizing opposition to the state’s new gun control law.  Last week, the Riga Town Board voted 4 to 0 to adopt a resolution condemning the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013.  “The Riga Town Board does hereby oppose the enactment of any legislation that would infringe upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms and consider such laws to be unnecessary and beyond lawful legislative authority granted to our state representatives,” the resolution reads.
