Keep Greene County NY SAFE

130 Signatures Goal: 2,000

Last month, in response to the shootings at Sandy Hook, New York State's representatives passed the NY SAFE ACT, designed to reduce gun violence.  One month later, the Legislature of Greene County, NY, is passing a resolution that finds fault with virtually every provision of NY SAFE and demands the repeal of the act.  As a registered voter in Greene County (or someone who visits there often) I wish to express my strong disagreement with that decision.

We all respect the 2nd Amendment and the rights guaranteed by it, but we also agree that too many people in Greene County, and too many Americans across the nation, have been harmed by gun violence.  For years, we've done nothing as we argued over which step to take first, but that time has passed.  NY SAFE is a beginning.  It may not be perfect, and there may be changes needed, but it is a beginning.  Guns are a part of life  in Greene County, New York's original frontier, but we also place a high value on the protection of our children, our families, and the thousands of tourists who visit Greene County every year.  Instead of calling for repeal of NY SAFE, the Legislators of Greene County should get down to work and start trying to improve it.
