Assembly members to hold hearing on NY SAFE Act

Four local Assembly members are expected to participate in a regional legislative hearing on the NY SAFE Act from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday in Amherst Town Hall, 5583 Main St., Williamsville.

Assemblyman Michael Montesano, R-Glen Head, the ranking member of the Assembly’s Legislative Oversight Committee, will be joined by Assemblyman Ray Walter, R-Amherst; Assemblywoman Jane Corwin, R-Clarence; Assemblyman David DiPietro, R-East Aurora; and Assemblyman Steve Hawley, R-Batavia.

“We will be gathering information from local officials, as well as medical professionals and firearm enthusiasts, in order to provide greater insight on the ways in which the SAFE Act will affect the lives of the citizens of our community,” DiPietro reports.

The act regulates the use of guns in New York State.
