The Mayor is taking a play from the playbook of Governor Cuomo and sponsoring a resolution in support of the Anti-2nd Amendment "NYSAFE" act to further his political ambitions as he gears up for his campaign for county executive.
We have witnessed major rallies in Albany since the acts passage with turnout for the latest Feb 28th rally at near 10,000.
While counties, towns and law enforcement across the state are passing resolutions against the questionable and most likely unconstitutional act in support of the unalienable individual right of every American citizen to keep and bear arms.
The New Rochelle city council will be taking up this resolution at their next meeting on Tuesday March 12th.
Gun Policy: 22.2. Resolution on behalf of the New Rochelle City Council in support of New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's Safe & Fair Gun Policy and the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act (NYSAFE) to mitigate gun violence in response to the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14,2012. Sponsored by Mayor Bramson.
Please make your every effort to be at this meeting, so that your opinions can be heard and added to the record. No matter what politically opportune stunt Mayor Bramson pulls, the citizens of New Rochelle must make clear that they do not stand with their elected officials but rather with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and that those officials will be held accountable to their oaths of office when it comes time to vote.
