BILL NUMBER:S5591 REVISED 5/23/13

TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal chapter 1 of the laws of 2013,
amending the criminal procedure law and other laws relating to
suspension and revocation of firearms licenses; private sale or
disposal of firearms, rifles or shotguns and establishing a minimum
age to possess a firearm relating to gun control

PURPOSE: An act to repeal Chapter 1 of the Laws of 2013, amending the
Criminal Procedure Law and other laws relating to the suspension and
revocation of the disposal of firearms licenses; private sale or
disposal of firearms, rifles, or shotguns and establishing a minimum
age to possess a firearm relating to gun control.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The entirety of Chapter 1 would be repealed.

JUSTIFICATION: The "New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms
Enforcement Act of 2013" commonly referred to as the "SAFE Act," has
been the most controversial, contentious and divisive law ever enacted
in the history of the Empire State. Enacted into law through a Message
of Necessity without a single public hearing or opportunity for
citizens to comment, the SAFE Act is an unconstitutional and thus
illegal law that eroded the Second Amendment freedoms of all New
Yorkers, criminalized millions of law-abiding citizens and imposed a
costly, massive new unfunded mandate on local governments and local
taxpayers. The SAFE Act undermines the right to keep and bear arms,
which is guaranteed to every American and enshrined in the
Constitution of the United States to safeguard all our liberties
against tyranny.

Just as the Minutemen and colonial militia stood against oppression at
Lexington and Concord, so too have millions of freedom-loving,
law-abiding New Yorkers stood strong against Governor Cuomo's SAFE
Act. Nearly every County government across the State has passed a
legislative resolution opposing the SAFE Act, as have 51 Sheriffs and
numerous law enforcement organizations. In the few months that the
SAFE Act has been law in New York State, it has already caused chaos
and confusion, needlessly subjecting citizens to potential prosecution
that is wholly unconstitutional

While various legislative remedies have been introduced that address
some of the most egregious and unconstitutional parts of the SAFE Act,
the inescapable reality is that the SAFE Act must be completely
repealed before this reckless law can do even more damage to the
Second Amendment freedoms that New Yorkers depend upon This
legislation - the "UN-SAFE Act Repealer" - would repeal the SAFE Act
in its entirety.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:. New Bill
