Chenango aligns with SAFE Act opposition

NORWICH – While many local policy makers contest the New York State Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act, a new measure brought before county officials intends to further distance the county from the gun control law.



At the March meeting of the Chenango County Safety and Rules Committee, town supervisors discussed and accepted a motion denying the state use of official Chenango County markings on SAFE Act correspondence. According to the committee, the SAFE Act is a state imposed mandate and as such, it is the responsibility of state officials to enforce it.

The resolution states, “This act clearly indicates that the enforcement of this law is the responsibility of New York State.” Additionally, it prohibits use of the county name, seal, letter head or address for the purpose of correspondence with legal and registered gun owners regarding permit recertification or other purposes related to the SAFE Act.
