Governor Cuomo's SAFE Act strengthen's NY's gun safety laws and provides for background checks for all gun purchases, closing the gun show loophole. Every day, nearly 34 Americans are murdered with guns. According to Mayors Against Illegal Guns, 74 percent of NRA members support common sense restrictions like criminal background checks for anyone buying a gun. Residents of Tompkins County care about reasonable public safety measures and not special interest groups to help stop gun violence.
