Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5591                REVISED 5/23/13

TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal chapter 1 of the laws of 2013, amending the criminal procedure law and other laws relating to suspension and revocation of firearms licenses; private sale or disposal of firearms, rifles or shotguns and establishing a minimum age to possess a firearm relating to gun control

PURPOSE: An act to repeal Chapter 1 of the Laws of 2013, amending the Criminal Procedure Law and other laws relating to the suspension and revocation of the disposal of firearms licenses; private sale or disposal of firearms, rifles, or shotguns and establishing a minimum age to possess a firearm relating to gun control.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The entirety of Chapter 1 would be repealed.

JUSTIFICATION: The "New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013" commonly referred to as the "SAFE Act," has been the most controversial, contentious and divisive law ever enacted in the history of the Empire State. Enacted into law through a Message of Necessity without a single public hearing or opportunity for citizens to comment, the SAFE Act is an unconstitutional and thus illegal law that eroded the Second Amendment freedoms of all New Yorkers, criminalized millions of law-abiding citizens and imposed a costly, massive new unfunded mandate on local governments and local taxpayers. The SAFE Act undermines the right to keep and bear arms, which is guaranteed to every American and enshrined in the Constitution of the United States to safeguard all our liberties against tyranny.

Just as the Minutemen and colonial militia stood against oppression at Lexington and Concord, so too have millions of freedom-loving, law-abiding New Yorkers stood strong against Governor Cuomo's SAFE Act. Nearly every County government across the State has passed a legislative resolution opposing the SAFE Act, as have 51 Sheriffs and numerous law enforcement organizations. In the few months that the SAFE Act has been law in New York State, it has already caused chaos and confusion, needlessly subjecting citizens to potential prosecution that is wholly unconstitutional

While various legislative remedies have been introduced that address some of the most egregious and unconstitutional parts of the SAFE Act, the inescapable reality is that the SAFE Act must be completely repealed before this reckless law can do even more damage to the Second Amendment freedoms that New Yorkers depend upon This legislation - the "UN-SAFE Act Repealer" - would repeal the SAFE Act in its entirety.
