Niagara County Could Oppose NY SAFE Act

February 18, 2013 Updated Dec 5, 2013 at 11:18 AM EDT

Niagara Falls, NY (WKBW) - Some Niagara County lawmakers plan to send a strong message to Albany this week against the NY SAFE Act.

They are proposing three resolutions in opposition of the state's new gun law.

The first would come down against the five-year pistol permit renewal requirement. The second resolution would ensure that gun owners' personal information is not made public. The third resolution asks state lawmakers to eliminate the law all together.

The resolutions will go before the Niagara County legislature this Tuesday. The Republican caucus is expected to support it.

Other Niagara County lawmakers have shown support for the new law. Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster (D) and Police Superintendent Bryan DalPorto have spoken in favor of the NY SAFE Act.
