“Flipped-flopped control in the state Senate during recent years sent upstate New York on a bad path, State Sen. Catharine Young, R-Olean, told the Allegany County Board of Legislators earlier this week. She added the recent elections results will lead to positive changes for the area now that the Republicans have regained a majority … Ms. Young said the state Senate will also re-examine the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (S.A.F.E.) Act, a gun control law which the Allegany County Board of Legislators opposed earlier this year. Republicans already negotiated some of the terms presented in the initial S.A.F.E. Act, the senator said, and the current law would have featured more restrictions in it — pistol permit renewal every two years instead of every five years — had the Republicans not won the majority of the seats during this year’s election …”
Bullshit. The reason SAFE was voted on in the first place was because the Republicans wanted it to be voted on. The agreement Dean Skelos had with Jeff Klein was that either of them could have blocked any bill from coming to the floor. Skelos didn’t do that. So now Young is saying Skelos & Co. is going to change the very law that they wanted instituted in the first place? Yeah, right.
