AbleStock.com

Broome County lawmakers are pushing for a repeal of the recently enacted New York State gun restrictions.Several Legislators, the County Executive and Broome County Sheriff David Harder have all criticized the new restrictions saying thre are too many restrictions in the legislation that was hastily pushed through in Albany following the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in Connecticut.

Harder says one of the troublesome flaws in the measure is the limit on the size of ammunition magazines, even for law enforcement officers.

More than half the counties in the state have passed resolutions critical of the SAFE Act.

The proposed legislation in Broome County is  currently moving through the committee process.

Meanwhile, a new NBC  New York/ Wall Street Journal/ Marist College poll found 41% of New Yorkers say they thought the new gun control law is on target, 30% said it went too far and 19% said the law doesn’t go far enough.
