Sheriffs take stand on SAFE Act
Messenger Post ^ | Jun 04, 2013 | Erinn Cain

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....

New York has always had a fairly large crowd who felt more comfortable with fascism than any other way of life.

They'd be best off shipping those people back.

I wish the Sherriff’s in Maryland would take the same stand.

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!”

ez ~:" Cuomo does not have that power, these are elected officials, not Cuomo appointees." Right .. I thought that too ! Of course that makes sense ; but this is NY State , remember ? See FReeper : http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3021980/posts Original Article http://www.timesunion.com/default/article/Sheriffs-Cuomo-asked-for-silence-4532930.php

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"

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.

I’m not about to believe that until you can quote chapter and verse.
