Below you’ll find an updated image of counties that have passed resolutions against the NY SAFE Act and those that are pending. As you can see a very LARGE majority of the state has spoken out against the SAFE act.
Are you a Monroe County resident? Do you know that on March 12, 2013 at 6pm the legislature is supposed to decide whether or not they want to officially oppose the SAFE Act. Did you also know that unlike every other county out there they don’t plan on actually voting on it. There is just going to be a place for the legislators to sign to symbolically do this. The Republicans in the county are too afraid to actually step up and stand for whats right!!
“We need to have 50-100 people sign up to speak in favor of a vote against SAFE, keep them there all night listening to us. Maybe then they will get the message and actually take a stand.
You can call 585-753-1950 to sign up to speak at the public forum before the legislature meeting. You’ll have two minutes to speak and all you have to do is urge them to have that vote.”
If you haven’t been following http://www.nysaferesolutions.com/ you may not know that most of the counties in NYS have approved resolutions speaking out AGAINST the NY SAFE Act. There are very few counties left where a resolution hasn’t been at least proposed. Unexpectedly most of them are in the NYC area. Even Albany county has a resolution proposed. If your county is in the “proposed” category make sure you show up to any meetings and advocate for it! These resolutions hold no legal sway (even if every county in NYS were to speak out against the SAFE Act it wouldn’t actually change anything immediately). However, with so many counties speaking against it, it just goes to show how very little our legislators are actually listening to their constituents. If they had been, this act would have never passed.
As with the current NY SAFE Act, having more than 7 rounds of ammo in your magazine is defined as criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, a Class D Violent Felony. A felony is defined as a crime punishable by death or imprisonment in excess of one year. We consider these crimes below to be WORSE than having more than 7 rounds, however, New York State disagrees. These crimes below are lesser crimes than possessing more than 7 rounds of ammunition.
