Map of counties opposing NY Safe Act
"NOW, THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Westerlo Town Board does hereby oppose the enactment of any legislation that would infringe upon the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms and consider such laws to be unnecessary and beyond lawful legislative authority granted to our State representatives.

IT IS FURTHER RESOLVED that New York State must repeal the NY SAFE Act because its provisions are burdensome to our constituents and this town’s government constitutionally, fiscally (as an unfunded mandate) and practically, yet unlikely to provide palpable benefit in the fight against violence and those individuals who are likely to cause same.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to: President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Senator Charles Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Congressman Paul Tonko, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk, and Assemblyman Pete Lopez."
