major chiefs assn logoThe Major City Chiefs Association has filed a friend-of-the-court brief  in support of the state’s new NY SAFE Act, which gives New York some of the strongest gun safety laws in the country.  The association, which includes the police chiefs of Buffalo and Rochester and many other cities across the country,  considers the law an important step in curbing the illegal use of assault weapons.

The NY SAFE Act is under threat by the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association and other pro-gun groups. More information on the NY SAFE Act–the NY Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act–can be found here.
