Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney Calls NY SAFE Act “Great Burden”
Albany, NY (WIBX) - New York might have the strictest gun laws in the country, but one local lawmaker says she saw glaring problems in the legislation.
According to Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney, the Assembly was not given a full 72 hours to read the bill, but still were able to find mistakes.
Tenney says, "Jobs, constitutional rights and our upstate culture are feeling the brunt of political rhetoric and action from downstate. The most terrible aspect of how this assault on upstaters was perpetrated is the means by which this bill was passed."
The law's passage limits ammunition magazine sizes, expands the ban on assault weapons and makes it harder for the mentally ill to own firearms. It also restricts gun sales even further.
