The controversial New York SAFE Act suffered two setbacks in the last week as the New York State Sheriffs Association had filed an amicus brief as part of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association lawsuit and the Columbia County District Attorney has decided not to prosecute a man arrested under the new law.In addition to the sheriff's motion to have their view of the law on the record in the suit against the state, the association, along with five individual sheriffs, are asking to join the suit as plaintiffs.
(A)nother protest against the SAFE Act has been scheduled for June 11. Organized by the Shooters Committee on Political Education, in conjunction with the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, the Erie County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, and Oath Keepers New York, this event is expected to be as large as the Feb. 28 rally in which an estimated 10,000 gunowners and supporters took part.Cuomo’s people tried to downplay that crowd by half, by not including the throngs of patriots inside the Legislative Office Building. But that ruse was shot down by others who provided a more accurate count.The organizers are hoping for a crowd of 25,000 people at the June 11 event — which isn’t so far off base considering the number of gunowners there are in the state. . .
