Tompkins County Supports SAFE Act

To be delivered to Tompkins County Legislature

Petition Statement

We believe that the Tompkins County Legislature should pass a resolution in support of the SAFE Act.

The SAFE Act provides common sense gun safety laws which are supported by a majority of Americans- including gun owners, non gun owners and NRA members. This act does not infringe upon anyone's right to the Second Amendment.
There are currently 809 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

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.
