We all know this, They all know's just a feel good/ publicity stunt for his White House bid. This has NOTHING to do with curbing gun violence of criminal, I see nothing in this that will have an effect at all. Sad...but glad to have Gerace change his opinion after first Supporting this measure. He hadn't even read the*****thing until now but "supported" Coumo the day it was anounced. These are the kinds of people and situations that hurt law abiding citizens.

There's a part of this letter from the sheriffs to the governor which I am greatly puzzled by. Under the section entitled: "Safe Storage of Firearms" it reads, in apart, something about the new gun law requiring that if you have a felon, a person previously convicted of a misdeameanor crime of domestic violence or a person under a Court Order of Protection stemming from a domestic violence issue; living under your roof; YOU MUST STORE ANY GUNS THAT YOU HAVE IN A SAFE MANNER. That fact is that federal law (see: Lautenberg Amendment et al) PROHIBITS such persons from living in a domicle where weapons or ammunition are stored! To do so is a federal crime! I don't understand how it is that the sheriffs don't know that! Safely stored or otherwise, it's illegal to keep guns or ammo under such circumstances. Moreover, the person's mentioned above are themselves prohibited from EVER owning guns or ammo, unless they have had their 2nd Amendment rights restored by court order.

Good to know someone in a place of "power" is looking out for our rights. That bill Cuomo rushed and passed isn't going to do much to help curb gun control & violence.

Way to go!
