RESOLUTION NO. 147-20130306

RESOLUTION – OPPOSING THE NEW YORK SECURE AMMUNITION
AND FIREARMS ENFORCEMENT (SAFE)
ACT OF 2013

POWERS, MCCARTY, ROTHENBERGER, ROSENTHAL

WHEREAS, the Otsego County Board of Representatives upholds and supports the enforcement of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and
WHEREAS, the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013 (A.2388/S.2230) was rushed to passage in the State Legislature through a flawed process that excluded input from concerned citizens; and
WHEREAS, provisions in the SAFE Act are already requiring, and will continue to require, greater expenses of County resources, in effect creating a new unfunded mandate; and
WHEREAS, implementation of the SAFE Act will also require investment of state resources that could otherwise be used to promote other criminal justice initiatives that keep our residents safe; and
WHEREAS, the SAFE Act would criminalize law-abiding citizens, including police officers, who are the responsible owners of certain firearms and magazines that were included in the law; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, that the Otsego County Board of Representatives opposes the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013 and the flawed process by which it was enacted, including Governor Cuomo’s


Message of Necessity which limited debate and input from concerned citizens; and be it further
RESOLVED, that the Otsego County Board of Representatives requests that the SAFE Act be repealed and replaced with more sensible legislation that does not infringe upon Second Amendment rights, does not create unfunded mandates on county governments, addresses issues including mental illness and deterring violent crime, and includes full input from the public; and be it further
RESOLVED, that the Clerk of the Otsego County Board of Representatives forward a certified copy of this Resolution to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Temporary Presidents of the Senate Jeffrey D. Klein and Dean G. Skelos, Speaker Sheldon Silver, and the county’s representatives in the New York State Senate and Assembly
