SIGN THE PETITION asking our legislature to support the SAFE Act.
The petition supports NYS new guncontrol laws under the SAFE Act
the second amendment.
Make a public comment at the meeting tomorrow.
This special meeting at UPAC will cost Ulster taxpayers $1200 just so Republicans can showboat their extreme views on guns. See you there.
