Rensselaer County Passes Pro-Second Amendment Resolution

Rensselaer County just passed a resolution relating to the second amendment as follows (taken from the press release):  

The Legislature passed a resolution reaffirming their support of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and opposing any further infringements on the constitutional right to bear arms. The resolution opposes long gun registration, the requirement of obtaining a hunting permit before purchasing a firearm, social media background checks, and opposition to the “Red Flag” law. The legislation passed 10-5 with the Democrats in the minority voting against it.

“We cannot sit back idly and let the State chip away at our constitutional rights”, said Legislator Todd Tesman.”
