Its obvious its an election year when politicians work hard to come up with laws that will fix everything. Even when there is already a law on the books covering a crime. It sort of reminds me of the war on drugs where politicians were working so hard to out do each other on how tough they could be regarding drug penalties. And what we got out of it was an incarceration rate second to none.
On Friday they introduced “Nicholas’ Law,” which would require gun owners to do what they should already be doing — locking their weapons and storing them away.
However, the recently passed NYSafe Act seems to already have that covered.
"The SAFE Act is aimed at reducing gun violence and making New York a safer place to live. It requires that guns remain safely secured and inaccessible to those not permitted to possess them. Following a few common sense rules and educating our children will make a safer New York."
