Federal preemption? . . . Rep. Collins says he will carry gun — Is seven bullets enough?
Congressman Collins says he working with SCOPE to repeal the SAFE Act, and put forth federal law that would pre-empt one of Governor Cuomo’s signature pieces of legislation.
“The SAFE Act does not keep lawful citizens safe,” said Collins. “It was just, I would call it again, a progressive, far left piece of legislation that was pandering to the gun control people. Criminals will pay no attention to that law whatsoever.”
But we caught up with Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul on Thursday and asked her if New Yorkers would be able to defend themselves under the SAFE Act. She told us, “I won’t comment on what the congressman chooses to do, but I don’t think there’s any question now that the SAFE Act is more important now than ever.”
