More Gun Talk: Schimel To Speak in Great Neck

Local legislator to be featured guest at Temple Beth-El of Great Neck.

Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel is scheduled to speak on the topic of gun control at Temple Beth-El of Great Neck next week.

The recently-enacted NY SAFE Act, proposed microstamping legislation and the effort to reduce gun violence at the federal level have been hot topics of late for the Great Neck Democrat.

In her continuing push for increased gun control, Schimel is expected to further the discussion at the temple's Erev Shabbat Service March 8 at 7 p.m.

Tell us: Are there other Great Neck issues you would like to see Schimel address in Albany besides gun control? Let us know in the comments section.

Governor Cuomo is dividing the state and polarizing rural voters and citizens of New York. He has tried to imply that those opposed to the SAFE act are fringe elements or extremists. To the contrary, they are the people of New York State. Below are the New York State counties, towns and law enforcement agencies who have passed or are passing resolutions against the SAFE ACT: Counties Allegany County, Association of Erie County Governments, Cattaraugus County, Cayuga County, Chemung County, Chenango County, Chautauqua County, Chemung County, Columbia County, Cortland County, Delaware County, Dutchess County, Erie County, Fulton County, Genesee County, Greene County, Hamilton County, Herkimer County, Jefferson County, Lewis County, Livingston County, Madison County, Monroe County, Montgomery County, Niagara County, Oneida County, Onondaga County, Ontario County, Orange County, Orleans County, Oswego County, Otsego County, Putnam County, NY Association of Counties, Rensselaer County, Rockland County, Saint Lawrence County, Schoharie County, Seneca County, Schuyler County, Steuben County, Tioga County, Ulster County, Warren County, Washington County, Wayne County, Wyoming County, Yates County

The act was debated in closed session without committee hearings, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed it into law within an hour of its passage — after waiving the required three-day public comment period. This 80 page legislation was passed late into the night… literally and figuratively under the cover of darkness. There existed no exigent need as claimed, of the Act’s 60 sections, only three took effect on its adoption into law. This legislation does not have the support of our law enforcement community, which the legislature failed to consult or exempt, despite being tasked with its enforcement. In fact, the NY State Sheriffs Association has specifically opposed the act, which criminalizes heretofore legal arms, magazines, and heavily restricts ammunition purchases, leaving NY state residents without legal access to, or unknowingly subject to criminal penalty for possession of, items that can be purchased over-the-counter in each of NY’s contiguous states. The New York State Association of County Clerks and the New York State Association of Counties have also passed resolutions opposing the NY SAFE act
