The major modification of the SAFE Act is NOT a conservative issue. A good number of progressive people recognize the law's many flaws and want it fixed as well. The SAFE Act was poorly written by people who are obviously clueless about firearms.

The Sheriff's Association makes some very good points that I agree with. The SAFE act is a hodgepodge of good ideas and terrible policy that should be redesigned and recreated into a law that makes sense.

A survey based on the AP/gun control that's not biased or anything is it........?!@$#@! prince andy said it was of immediate necessity to pass the law but much of it wasn't to go in to effect for over a year - who is he trying to kid. The PJ police reports have DUI's listed almost daily - a 2000lb. missile traveling down public roads by an impaired driver and he(andy) is concerned with the pistol grip on my shotgun. Wow our governor is a real thinker.LOL

the vast majority of new yorkers disagree with this law. as of 6 months ago 52 of nys's 62 counties have passed official resolutions in direct opposition of the safe act.

yet here we are though still dealing with a horsesh*t piece of legislation. i thought elected officials are supposed to be the voice of the people.

andy "hud" cuomo you sir are living breathing feces!

You don't need gun control. You need self control. People learn....good or bad. They learn how to act and react, and what is acceptable. As a society we have lost our sensibility.

Start to finish, in order for me to get my concealed handgun permit, it took 10 months, a very thorough background check, 4 references, a handgun class, and about $200 in fees and charges. What more do they want when the say they want better background checks? My whole life was scrutinized to the max before I could get my license. And as far as a gun registry, My handguns are registered on my license so they know exactly what I have. The only ones that aren't registered are the legal shotguns.

I know plenty of people who applied for a handgun permit almost a year ago and still do not have one.

To legally get a handgun permit in NY you have to have quite a bit of money.
