Gun resolution passed too hastily?

February 27, 2013

As was reported in your publication recently, the Cochecton town board saw fit to hastily pass a copycat resolution opposing new gun legislation passed by the New York State Assembly and Senate. I find it interesting that many local legislative bodies are using the very tactic that the state is being criticized for—rushing legislation through before the public has time to react.
