Saratoga Co. lawmakers join SAFE Act opposition

Posted: Updated:

SARATOGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Saratoga County lawmakers are joining the list of those voicing opposition to the New York SAFE Act.

The law, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo last month, makes New York's gun control laws the strictest in the country.

In a statement, the Saratoga County supervisors say the law goes too far, has major flaws, and was rushed.

Resolutions against the law have already been passed in many other local counties.

The Saratoga County Sheriff joined a lawsuit against the law last week, and Monday, the Saratoga County Sheriff's Union sent a letter to the governor, voicing its opposition to the law.
