Tioga District Attorney Candidate Wants Gun Law Repealed

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

One of the Republican candidates for Tioga County district attorney says he wants New York state’s new gun control law scrapped.

Kirk Martin criticized the law as “restrictive of Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.”

Governor Cuomo signed the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 on January 15.

Martin said Cuomo “went way too far” in pushing the measure through the legislature.

Martin suggested the gun law will make New Yorkers less safe because it will divert law enforcement resources away from fighting crime.

Martin told WNBF News he’s heard from many Tioga County residents who are opposed to the new law.

Martin is one of three announced Republican candidates for the district attorney post. Irene Graven and Adam Schumacher also are seeking the party nomination for the job vacated since Gerald Keene was elected county judge.
