Looks like Bloomberg is having problems with his SAFE Act. Unlike the Tennessee State Legislators that won’t nullify Federal gun control, the NDAA and about anything else, many New York State Counties are in the process of nullifing their own State’s new gun control law, the SAFE Act.
New York Counties Work to Repeal State Gun Control Laws
As Democrats and gun control advocates praise the New York State Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013, or NY SAFE Act as it is generally known, for being the first post-Newtown gun control legislation in the country, county after county in New York State has either introduced or passed resolutions calling for the law’s repeal.
As of March 11, a total of 52 out of New York State’s 62 counties have introduced resolutions requesting the repeal of the NY SAFE Act. Of those 52 county resolutions, 40 of them have already passed — meaning that roughly two-thirds of the counties of New York State reject Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “landmark” gun control legislation.
Of the state’s 10 remaining counties that have yet to introduce any such anti-NY SAFE Act resolution, half of them are in New York City. New York City is composed of five boroughs — Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx — each of which is also a state county (respectively: Kings County, New York County, Queens County, Richmond County, and Bronx County). Outside of New York City, the five remaining counties that have not introduced repeal resolutions are Nassau, Schenectady, Suffolk, Tompkins, and Westchester.
The website www.nysaferesolutions.com has been monitoring daily the number of counties and towns that have been introducing and passing resolutions against the NY SAFE Act. This webpage also has a Facebook presence, popular among Tea Party activists and lawful gun owners in New York.
