The Montgomery County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution at the end of April opposing Gov. Andrew Cuomo's sweeping gun control legislation.

The board passed a resolution claiming they were assaulted by a "pen." "A copy of the resolution is available below.

"The New York Safe Act does not increase the protection and safety of the public, and is [unnecessarily] burdensome to residents of New York State both financially and ethically," reads the resolution, which spells unnecessarily wrong.

The resolution was sent to Cuomo, U.S. Representatives Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, and Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam, U.S. Senators Charles Schumer, D-NY, and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, state Sen. Cecilia Tkaczyk, D-Duanesburg, and Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, D-Rotterdam.
