Ulster panel recommends lawmakers withhold county seal from SAFE Act enforcement effort
Ulster panel recommends lawmakers withhold county seal from SAFE Act enforcement effort - Ulster County legislators plan to ask the state not to use the county’s seal when requiring gun owners to renew their pistol permits every five years under the SAFE Act. The Laws and Rules Committee of the county Legislature voted unanimously Monday evening to oppose the use of the county seal, said committee member Kenneth Ronk. “This is not for or against the Safe Act,” said Ronk, R-Shawangunk. “This is just about the state overreaching and using county resources, essentially, to do a state function.”
Assault weapon deadline arrives
Assault weapon deadline arrives - New Yorkers are required to register their assault weapons under the state’s new gun-control law today — or face time behind bars. Today is the deadline for state residents who own guns labeled as assault weapons under the New York SAFE Act to register them with the state. Assault weapons are those with a “military-style feature” such as a detachable magazine, pistol grip or telescoping stock. If gun owners fail to register their firearms today, they could be charged with a class A misdemeanor and spend up to a year in county jail. If an individual unintentionally fails to register, a 30-day amnesty period will be extended, according to the New York State Police.
Growing pains in gun groups
Growing pains in gun groups - Tom King, the president of the state's largest and oldest pro-gun group, has never had a bigger pulpit — and he's never had so many of his fellow believers yelling at him. The president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association saw its membership nearly double last year to more than 41,000 after passage of the state's most divisive gun control law in decades, making it the nation's largest state affiliate of the powerful National Rifle Association.

Jefferson County Wants State To Stop Using Seal For SAFE Act
Jefferson County Wants State To Stop Using Seal For SAFE Act - It's a direct shot at the NY SAFE Act, the state's gun control legislation. It's something that started in January with a meeting of county clerks. "We did a round table and realized that this was a high concern," said Jefferson County Clerk Gizelle Meeks. What they realized was that the state was adding each county's seal to pistol permits without any of the counties' approval. Meanwhile, Jefferson County legislators were hearing about it from constituents. "Two or three calls, two or three emails in a district my size, very gun friendly, very concerned with the SAFE Act as a whole," said Legislator Jeremiah Maxon (R. - District 10).
