State Officially Denied Use Of County Seal In SAFE Act

CHENANGO COUNTY – New York State has officially been denied use of the Chenango County seal on correspondence relative to the locally contested Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act.

Members of the Chenango County Board of Supervisors on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution prohibiting the state from using the county name, seal, letter head, or address for purposes of correspondence with legal and registered gun owners.

The SAFE Act stipulates that all pistol licenses be re-certified to the Division of State Police every five years, and licenses issued prior to the SAFE Act must be re-certified by January, 2018.

The state initially proposed using local government office names, including that of the Chenango County Sheriff's Office and the seal of the Chenango County government, to localize re-certification notices.

But enforcement of those policies is the responsibility of the state, local officials argue, and should not include the county.
