BALLSTON SPA, NY (WRGB)–“I don’t have the capability, manpower to enforce it. I’m not going to enforce it.”
Sheriff Michael Zurlo stuck to his guns about a new mandate taking affect statewide.
State Police want anyone with a pistol permit issued more than four years ago to re-certify, a SAFE Act requirement that could lead to authorities seizing your guns if you don’t comply.
Zurlo, says his deputies won’t be taking part.
“I’m pro 2nd Amendment, against the Safe Act, and I’ll continue to fight for the rights of residents of Saratoga County. ”

The governor’s office referred us to state police..who argued, “through re-certification, state records on active pistol/revolver licenses will be accurate and up to date.”
Some gun owners actually agree.
“I could see where it could be not a bad thing to re-certify, to keep pistol permits up to date for a lot of people,” said Joe Welch, Jr.
Say, what’s in the water up there is New York anyway? You have a Sheriff who says he’s not going to enforce collectivism on his gun owners, and the press is actually able to find a gun owner who differs with the Sheriff.
I guess that some dogs … er, peasants, are just happy to feed from the crumbs that fall from the master’s table.
