Saratoga conservatives pile on NY SAFE

Add the Saratoga County Conservative Party to the list criticizing Gov. Andrew Cuomo's sweeping gun violence legislation.

“The legislation that was proposed by Governor Cuomo assaults the liberties guaranteed
to law- abiding citizens by the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution while failing to address the
underlying causes of gun violence.” said Saratoga County Conservative Party Chair Robert Zordan in a letter. “Further, the Governor’s citing of a ‘Message of Necessity’ circumvented the legislative process by which a three day cooling off period and an ample opportunity for public review and comment are afforded. The actions exemplify the dysfunction of representative government that has resulted in diminished public trust in our elected officials.”

The entire letter is available below.

Zordan is encouraging local governments to pass resolutions condemning the new law and calling for its repeal.
