Pro-gun lawmakers in New York are mad and it’s because they feel they were duped into voting to fund the state's much-despised anti-gun SAFE Act.
According to nypost.com, “legislators approved the reappropriation of $28 million to fund a gun database and another $3.2 million in new money for SAFE Act staff.”
One Senator, who chose to remain anonymous, said, “We were told there was no funding for it. If there was, I would have voted against it.”
Many other GOP lawmakers said they only found out about the SAFE act funding after the state budget division briefing.
