Young isn’t fooling anyone

From the Salamanca Press, “Young: Work against SAFE Act continues 5 years later“:

“It’s been five years since sweeping gun law changes were approved, but local officials still hope that changes will come. The Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013, enacted Jan. 15, 2013, was approved with support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Assembly and Senate Democrats and 11 of 29 Republicans in the state Senate — the majority from downstate …”

Let’s be clear on this: “Upstate” Republicans are as much responsible for passage of SAFE as those from Long Island.  Exactly two Republicans stood up on the floor to voice their opposition: Greg Ball and Kathy Marchione.  The rest from “upstate” sat stone silent during the voting.

“… State Sen. Catharine Young, R-Olean, was one of the Republicans to vote against the legislation, and said she would continue against it … “While, unfortunately, the Democrats in the New York State Assembly have prevented repeal legislation I sponsored that has passed the Senate, we have achieved an important victory in successfully blocking the implementation of the ammunition database,” Young said. “We’ve kept funds for the registry out of the state budget and will fight to do so again this year …”

Bullshit.  The legislature cannot defund SAFE though the budget. We have been through this before (#1, #2). Senator Young is flat out lying.

“… “I am also helping to lead efforts to try to secure a delay in the pistol recertification process, co-sponsoring legislation that would change the deadline from Jan. 31 to March 31,” she added …”

Big. Fucking. Deal.

Young, along with the rest of the “upstate” Republican Senators own SAFE.  They screwed over hundreds of thousands of their constituents because none of them had the stones to stand up for what is right and tell our megalomaniac Governor to go pound sand.  That is coming back to haunt them.
