A SAFE Act Rollback?

posted on July 15, 2015

It’s safe to say New York’s SAFE Act has generated plenty of debate. And now, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s coveted gun-control bill stands under fire yet again. The latest twist involves an agreement reached late last week between Cuomo and Senate Republicans that suspends implementation of a statewide database for background checks on ammunition.

While this delay of SAFE Act provisions angers Democrats, Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, cautions making too much of the news. “It’s obvious when the facts came to light it wasn’t nearly as much as we were looking for.” 

Of course, the SAFE Act has never been about practicality as much as Cuomo’s political posturing.
