Chautauqua County's Sheriff Weighs in on SAFE Act

  • Text size: + -

MAYVILLE, NY--Chautauqua County Sheriff Joe Gerace says New York's new SAFE Act was "ramrodded" through the state legislature.

The New York State Sheriff's association sent a letter to the Governor last week asking him to clarify and even change certain aspects of the law.

Gerace, a democrat, says the restrictions on magazines to seven rounds does nothing but punish lawful citizens. Like his colleagues, Gerace agreed that sheriffs should have been consulted beforehand.

Gerace reminds gun owners that local sheriffs have no plans to confiscate guns. He says the law doesn't call for that.
