Assemblyman Dave DiPietro has introduced Assembly Bill 6238, which calls for a full repeal of the SAFE ACT. The law was passed through the legislature quickly under a “message of necessity” from Gov. Cuomo. The message allows the legislature to bypass the normal three day “aging” process that legislation must normally go through.
We must repeal this law before any other decent citizen has their Second Amendment rights or health care privacy violated because of bureaucratic oversight. These are fundamental, self-evident rights and they should not be eradicated by politicians and brutalized by bureaucrats,” said DiPietro.
Meantime, he's still upset over misinformation provided by the New York State Police that prompted the Erie County Clerk to seek the suspension of the man’s pistol permit. It turned out police had the wrong man. “First, I would like to say that I feel terribly that this happened to one of our citizens. This man is a victim of an overly intrusive government and deserves to be treated far better than this in a free society,” DiPietro said. “This is exactly what we were promised would not happen. This man had his Second Amendment rights violated and absolutely dissolved because of misinformation. We are seeing the eradication of the Bill of Rights right here in New York under this draconian law.”
DiPietro told WBEN's Tom Bauerle the State Police were trying to blame the county clerk's office. "and they overstepped their bounds, and were ordered to do certain things which violated HIPPA, and they didn't expect this to backfire."
Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak says he wants to get to the bottom of this fearing lawsuits, not only in this case but in other aspects of the gun control issue. "We got a couple calls this morning in the office," says Gabryszak. "They are stirred up about this, this issue will not go away."
