ALBANY — On the second anniversary of the signing of the NY SAFE Act, state Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, along with other state lawmakers, is renewing his push to repeal the law.

Ortt has sponsored a handful of bills introduced by state Sen. Kathy Marchione and state Sen. Mike Nozzolio. The bills would completely overturn the SAFE Act.

“The SAFE Act was a terrible piece of legislation passed in the dead of the night without proper public or even legislative input," Ortt said. "It failed to protect a single New Yorker, turned law-abiding citizens into criminals, and infringed on our Constitutional rights."

“When I was elected as senator, I vowed to be the voice of many concerned constituents who vehemently said they wanted this law repealed. I want those people to know I have not forgotten about them,” said Sen. Ortt.  

The bills include amending the criminal procedure law and other laws relating to the suspension and revocation of firearms licenses; private sale or disposal of firearms, rifles, or shotguns; amending the penal law in relation to large capacity ammunition feeding devices.
