Tenney urges Assembly panel to allow vote on SAFE Act repeal

Tenney urges Assembly panel to allow vote on SAFE Act repeal – The Assembly Democratic majority is being urged by Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney to take up her bill that would repeal Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s gun control law known as the SAFE Act. The bill by Tenney, R-101, New Hartford, was to be considered today by the Assembly Codes Committee, which could then bring the legislation to the floor for a vote. Tenney, who has voted against SAFE Act funding in three consecutive budgets, said in an announcement that the act is “a violation of our Second Amendment Rights and has stripped law-abiding New Yorkers of their fundamental constitutional freedoms.”
