Ortt Introduces Legislation To Repeal SAFE Act (Except NYC) 

Via New York Upstate (HT Empire Report):

An Upstate New York state senator wants to repeal the NY SAFE Act everywhere except New York City.

Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, says if NYC can have different rules for things like ride sharing apps and minimum wage, gun control legislation should be the same way.

“It’s certainly much more popular or much better received in the city,” Ortt told Spectrum News.

The bill has the support of gun rights advocates including the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. It was initially proposed at the end of last session, but Ortt thinks it will get more attention now.

“This is the first time since I’ve been there … that I’ve really started to hear some real conversation from rank and file members about a certain repeal bill,” he said.
