I read with great interest the Jan. 9 editorial with regard to the re-certification of handguns.
One point of the Safe Act was totally overlooked because Gov. Andrew Cuomo was only interested in reducing the number of handguns in New York state.
This is the backdoor method he wanted in the first place. Anyone who does not re-certify their handgun, even though they may have met all the legal requirements previously, will now break the law.
They also will have all their firearms confiscated including: handguns, hunting, target, skeet, self defense and antique collectible guns. This act could turn law-abiding citizens into criminals and does nothing to remove firearms from the hands of actual criminals.
Don’t be fooled by Gov. Cuomo pledging to make New York a safer place by removing legal firearms in New York.
