Fifty-one of the 62 counties have passed resolutions in opposition to the state’s gun-control law passed Jan. 15.
The website, www.nysaferesolutions.com, has kept track of the resolutions, which were passed last month and earlier this month in response to the controversial law.
Upstate, all but three counties have passed resolutions in opposition to the law—Tompkins, Broome and Albany counties. The rest are Westchester, New York City and Long Island.
The resolutions, which are ceremonial, have called for either a repeal of the law or major changes. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state legislative leaders have indicated they will seek some minor modifications this week, such as allowing for 10-bullet magazines, but limiting the number of bullets allowed to be loaded to seven.
There are other changes introduced in a budget bill late last night.
