Madison County Legislature opposes NY SAFE Act – YNN, Your News Now

Many local municipalities have taken a stance on the issue of gun
control. Tuesday, it was Madison County’s turn to pass a resolution
opposing the SAFE Act. County Legislators voted 14 to 4 in favor of
the measure.

They say they don’t expect their vote to shake things up in Albany,
but they hope their local representatives are paying attention.

“I hope that at least our State Senator and State Assemblyman see
this that, as they do, we represent 72,000 people in Madison County
and we’ve taken a vote and passed it. And hopefully they’ll take it
to heart and reopen it,” said John Becker, Madison County Board of
Legislature Chairman.

Madison County is not alone either. In the past few weeks both Oswego
County and Herkimer County have each passed resolutions with similar
opposition to the law.
