After nearly two hours of hearing from county residents and discussing the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, the Ontario County Board of Supervisors tabled a resolution calling for the repeal of the legislation until its next meeting on March 7th.
Last night, Seneca Supervisor John Sheppard presented to the board an amendment calling for the repeal of the SAFE Act. The amendment was approved by the board in a weighted vote of 3,568 to 928.
New Geneva city supervisor, Dominick Vedora said he was unhappy with the process in which the amendment was brought before the board, saying he did not learn about the amendment until he was contacted by a constituent. Vedora called for laying over the amended resolution, so now it will be discussed again next month.
The Oswego County Legislature last night voted 25-0 for a resolution urging the repeal of the NY SAFE Act. Madison and Herkimer counties have already passed similar resolutions.
