Skip to comments.Jefferson County legislators consider resolution opposing state gun law
Posted on 02/07/2013 5:32:02 AM PST by rochester_veteran
Disappointed with aspects of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomos gun control bill and frustrated by the manner in which it was passed, Jefferson County legislators are considering drafting a resolution opposing the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013.
The NY SAFE Act, enacted last month, includes new definitions for and regulations on assault weapons, stronger regulations on ammunition, changes to mental health reporting requirements, statewide recertification of handguns and assault rifles, universal background checks and a mandatory sentence of life without parole for killing a first responder, among other provisions.
Modeled after a resolution created by Republican legislators in Ulster County, the Jefferson County resolution is expected to stake out a position opposing the act and requesting its repeal. The Jefferson County Board of Legislators has a 13-2 Republican majority.
The Ulster County resolution, which also asks the state Legislature to hold public hearings to address the issue of gun violence in a way that will produce meaningful results, faults Gov. Cuomo for not giving state legislators enough time to examine the act or to solicit feedback from their constituents and for using a message of necessity to bring the bill to vote immediately, bypassing the standard three-day maturation process for all legislation.

The fireworks can be seen here in a video of the meeting in question:
I signed up to be a litigant in a class action law suit, one of many lawsuits that are challenging this blatantly unconstitutional gun law.
Nathan Haddad was arrested in Jefferson County NY -- I was looking for more info on that the other night. It's not much in the news w/few exceptions, mostly via blogs/conservative websites, and I didn't know how to get info on the official story on his arrest.
The case of Nathan Haddad should boil the blood of any good American. A twelve-year veteran of the Army, with four deployments, is a decorated combat veteran and now, probably, a felon. His crime: possession of five empty 30-round magazines for an AR-15. The magazines were stowed in the trunk of his car at the time of a traffic stop.-- link to more at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2985386/posts
N.Y. vet arrested for 30-round magazines (Part 1)
Mr. Haddad, who was medically discharged in 2010 after 12 years of service, was arrested when he was stopped by police on Jan. 6 in LeRay, Ny. Through his brother Michael, Mr. Haddad declined to comment on the cause until after his Feb. 20 conference date to meet with the prosecutor and the judge.
Looks like Haddad won't be talking about this until at least Feb. 20.
Just pass a local law that voids the State law, and cite the NYS constitution as making the state law unconstitutional. Then the county can ignore any court that ignores that fact.

If the news report that is linked in an earlier post is correct, why in the world would he tell the cop he had anything?
Feel bad for the guy. But don’t tell the cops S**T.
Right, thanks. It also remains a mystery why Haddad volunteered that he had the magazines in his trunk (or if indeed he really did).
Until SSGT Haddad, who is being held prisoner in Jefferson County on unconstitutional trumped-up charges of possession of AR-15 magazines, is released and the phony felony charges dropped, anything coming out of Jefferson County must be taken with a grain of salt.
What do these legislators say about Haddad?
Cop: “You wouldn’t mind if take a look in your trunk, would you?”
It’s textbook. We just need to make sure our sons and daughters have read the same book.
I know, I know! Can’t believe he *didn’t! That’s why I wanted to confirm it, so thanks for info. Yikes!!
Yeah, that’s why I was surprised to see this action — what a disconnect! What’s up with them? Are they going to be asked any questions re: Haddad?
