An attempt to repeal the New York SAFE Act didn’t make it out of an Assembly Committee this week, as Republican Lawmakers & Gun Rights activists have been pushing for the repeal, since the law was passed last year. The Safe Act was passed in January 2013 shortly after the Newtown Connecticut School Shooting; the Assembly Codes committee also rejected an attempt to change the Opt-Out provision in the law.
