While no official proclamation has been made, New York City is not expected to offer any opposition given Mayor Michael Bloomberg's public support of the bill and help in drafting the legislation. Further, dozens of organizations, including sportsman's clubs within the state, the American Legion, the New York State Association of County Clerks, the New York State Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services, the New York State Conservation Council, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and others, have all publicly denounced the law, and called for its repeal or amendment.
As of May 11, 2013, 52 of New York's 62 counties have passed official resolutions in direct opposition of the NY SAFE Act; some of these counties have directed their law enforcement officials to not enforce the SAFE Act within their jurisdictions. More than 325 local municipalities throughout upstate New York have also voiced public opposition to the law through village, town and city resolutions calling for repeal. In fact, the public county and municipal opposition to the SAFE Act is historic in nature. Not since Governor George Clinton took office as New York's first Governor in 1777 has any other law in the state's history garnered the sheer magnitude of official opposition and condemnation as Governor Cuomo's SAFE Act. Even in the state capital of Albany, the Albany County minority legislature issued a proclamation opposing the SAFE Act. Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties have yet to act in any official manner. While no official proclamation has been ma
As always the devil was in the details. This was more than just a BILL to close loopholes in background checks, they were also trying to sneak in the so called "assault weapons" ban amendment and make it a felony for a father/mother, to give his/her son or daughter a firearm. We must always take care not to pass any laws that suppress and infringe on the rights of lawful Americans. This BILL did exactly that!
"Look up the NY SAFE Act."
Yeah..I did and maybe you should too. The discussion was about how the Executive Branch of our govt was taking guns. The NY Safe Act was passed by the NY Legislature
"Exactly what influences you and your opinions?"
Many places, unlike fanatics that seem to lean too heavily on just the Right or Left.
Yeah..that whole Berghdahl makes no sense. What did he say that was so wrong?
"In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate"
The horror. No one should smile politely at such words.
Look up the NY SAFE Act. See how the NY State patrol is confiscating guns from people as we speak because the sheriffs refused to do so. Anyone seen as a threat to society with decades old run ins with the law are losing their guns ! Ever heard of Michael Bloomberg and his campaign against legal gun owners?? Google that. Come on man. Wake up !!
Exactly what influences you and your opinions ? Sounds like Kunect is exactly right about you. Maybe you should research topics before you defend somethings. A mind really is a terrible thing to waste.
"WOW you ARE an informed one arent you."
Yes I am. Note that he wasn't trying to take away any guns.
"a reaction to the Senate's failure to pass a key gun control measure that would have expanded background checks."
Pay better attention to detail next time. In case you didn't notice...Obama still has not tried to take any weapons from you or anyone else you know.

WOW you ARE an informed one arent you.
I had to look this person up. I don't watch MSNBC as much as it seems that you do.
"Look at the Berghdahl video where Mr B. says the prayer in Islam and watch Barry smile broadly. And he has said the morning prayer "is the most beautiful sound on earth"."
I have no idea what video you are talking about because I couldn't find any reliable news video on it.
And Obama NEVER said that the call to prayer as the "most beautiful sound on earth".
Let's also pause for a moment to remind everyone that your faulty claim isn't even evidence of Obama being Muslim. Just that the call to prayer was beautiful sounding and depending on who is singing it..it can be.
"It is NOT because he hasnt tried."
He hasn't tried to take a single weapon from you or anyone you personally know now has he? If he wanted to he could do one of those swanky Executive Orders of his couldn't he? Jeesh, there have been more gun sales in the last few years than ever so that's evidence that he has not tried to take weapons away.
" While the haters thought by now that Obama would; 1)take all our weapons 2)destroy the literal country 3) be proven to be Muslim 4) create a socialistic govt 5) Be impeached..etc None of this has happened and it's not going to." First off, I am NOT a hater. I disagree with the group in charges policies now. Guns - It is NOT because he hasnt tried. He tried and failed because the NRA and citizens of this country kicked their butts because their anti gun lies were proven to be baseless. Look at the Berghdahl video where Mr B. says the prayer in Islam and watch Barry smile broadly. And he has said the morning prayer "is the most beautiful sound on earth". Yes, the public speaks thru their representatives. That is why the Republicans are keeping this liberal madness at bay.. Do people like you need to be hit over the head with the truth to believe the truth, contrary to what Melissa Harris-Perry tells you ?? Obviously !!
What exactly do you think the "public" should do?
Gun sales have been higher in the last 6 years than the average, so the public has weapons to use.
The mail system still works so we know the public could write to their Reps.
We still have a Republic, so the public could actually do something shocking and vote.
Was there anything else the public could do?
I used to think the American Public was smarter than give credit for by some but now, with people sitting by and allowing this crap and reasoning it away while a gov is doing this I am appalled that people are not only letting it but defending it !!
"It is everyones fault but his."
What actually funny is the imaginations that some people have because no one on here has said Obama wasn't at fault. No one.
"Dont expect him the guy that has an oath to do anything but..."
Really? You are going with a fallacy of absolutes? See..this is my complaint...that people go to weird extremes and then get angry when their fantasy doesn't match reality.
While the haters thought by now that Obama would; 1)take all our weapons 2)destroy the literal country 3) be proven to be Muslim 4) create a socialistic govt 5) Be impeached..etc
None of this has happened and it's not going to.
"They are quite literally afraid for the future of the Republic should Obama’s fake birth certificate go prime time."
These people are vastly ignorant conspiracy theorists.
"when the BP requested funding north of $100,000,000 for increased enforcement along the border, they were rejected."
Why was it rejected and how could it have helped solve the problem we have today.
Because "today" the problem isn't about illegals from Mexico. "Today" isn't about terrorists sneaking across the border. What the problem we have today isn't the same problem we have had for decades now is it?
Because of existing policies, we can't reject these children, can't just turn them around or any other half ***ed Mad Max solution the Far Right can come up with.
