Despite Cuomo’s Efforts, SAFE Act Data Will Be Made Available To Public

posted on May 19, 2015

A recent N.Y. Supreme Court ruling in Robinson v. Cuomo requires the immediate release of statistical data regarding “assault weapons” registration in New York since passage of the SAFE Act.

State police originally claimed the act exempts this data from public view. But while it was framed as a compliance issue, it’s likely that noncompliance was at the heart of Cuomo’s reticence. Reactions to the new registration requirements tend to range from shrugged shoulders to outright hostility—according to Breitbart News, hundreds of gun owners gathered in March to burn over a thousand registration forms in protest. Estimates place the number of registrations actually filed at 3,000 to 5,000, out of 1-2 million “military-style weapons” in the state—a noncompliance rate of 90-plus percent.

We’ll know soon how close those estimates are to reality, and we’re predicting a near-100-percent chance that Cuomo will wind up with egg on his face.
