Albany, N.Y. After the passage in January of tougher gun restrictions in New York, sheriffs across the state have joined a federal lawsuit challenging the legislation to reinforce the sheriffs position that portions of the (legislation) need to be changed and have a potentially negative impact on law-abiding citizens, said Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero.
The New York State Sheriffs' Association and five individual sheriffs have added their position to the record in the lawsuit filed by the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association regarding the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013. The individual sheriffs listed are Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts, Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard, Oswego County Sheriff Reuel Todd, Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith and Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey....

And NYS Governor Cuomo has threatened to REMOVE these elected officials, if they don’t comply with the SAFE ACT
They'd be best off shipping those people back.
They went to Annapolic and lobbied against our new gun bill, but it did no good. 4,000 Marylands showed up there and were sloughed off too. The liberal Democrat dingleberries didn't even listen, it was truly a waste of time to even show up there. As with most hearings, those running the hearings have their minds made up before you go there, and they are just putting on a show for the opposition.
Cuomo does not have that power, these are elected officials, not Cuomo appointees.
The chant of the pro-gun voters needs to be:
“Help Stop the Homo!
Vote Against Cuomo!”
Sheriffs are armed.
muawiyah ~:” New York has always had a fairly large crowd who felt more comfortable with fascism than any other way of life.”
Not ture !!
All the Sheriffs who signed opposition are UpState
DownState and NYC are totally different annimals , but even they have reservations.
The other day ,only 8 people shot and killed in “Gun Contolled “ NYC / Bloomie burg
See how successful “gun control” downstate is .. ? </sarc>
100 students ejected from NYC to Atlanta flight for being too rowdy "The teenagers, all seniors at the Yeshiva of Flatbush, in Brooklyn,..."
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
One person briefed on the meeting said Cuomo threatened to remove sheriffs from office, a little-used power afforded the state's chief executive under the state constitution. Moss would not confirm this. He did say the meeting was heated at times, but overall he described it as "cordial." (...)
Last week, the Sheriffs' Association as well as several elected sheriffs filed an amicus curiae brief supporting a federal challenge to the SAFE Act"

They're really,really asking for it, aren't they?
Retribution, with neither remorse nor regret.
Bloomberg lubs’ his fascism ~ seriously ~ and Cuomo wouldn’t have it any other way.
muawiyah ~:” Bloomberg lubs his fascism ~ seriously ~ and Cuomo wouldnt have it any other way.”
True Dat !!
Bloomberg , Cuomo, Sheldon Silver , and Chuckie Schumer are such narrcissists and statists !
If Cuomo tries to remove these people for upholding their oatsh then they and any loyal New Yorker supporting them has every right to overthrow Cuomo, arrest him, and try him for his crimes.
“Retribution, with neither remorse nor regret.”
If it comes to that then give them no quarter because they won’t give it to us.
No, they won't. There will be none so shocked and dismayed as those who presumed themselves immune to the consequences of their actions.
What about the Sheriffs of Nassau and Suffolk counties? That would be the majority of the territory known as Long Island. I don’t know about now, but in the late ‘80’s - early ‘90’s, in Nassau County, if you wanted a Nassau County government job, you had to show your voting card, and it had better be “Republican”.
But all of that was before that declared-cancer-infested McCarthy came along.
“One person briefed on the meeting said Cuomo threatened to remove sheriffs from office, a little-used power afforded the state’s chief executive under the state constitution.”
I’m not about to believe that until you can quote chapter and verse.
