Dutchess introduces firearms retailers signage law

Dutchess Co. Democrats have introduced a bill similar to Westchester’s calling for firearms retailers to post signs warning of the dangers of guns:

“The Democratic caucus of the Dutchess County Legislature, Monday night, introduced a gun warning resolution during the monthly board meeting, calling for warning signs to be posted anywhere a gun can be bought in the county … “We will not sit idly by and do nothing regarding gun violence,” said Minority Leader Yvette Valdes Smith. Assistant Minority Leader Barrington Atkins said, “Gun violence has ravaged the City of Poughkeepsie. This ordinance is to keep our public safe as gun violence is a public safety issue.” …”

Here is a copy of the proposed law.
