The union representing New York State Police say they believe the state’s stricter gun laws could put law enforcement officers at risk.
In an email release on Monday, the New York State Troopers PBA said its 6,000-member group “holds widely shared concerns” about the NY Safe Act. Nonetheless, the union takes exception to some state lawmakers accusing the troopers of failing to enforce the law.
“The individual members of this union did not write the terms of the bill nor vote on its passage,” the release said. “We urge the citizens of New York state to remember that troopers are simply tasked with the lawful mandate to enforce the laws of the state, regardless of their personal opinion of such laws.”
