Sheriff Harder Takes Issue with Parts of NY Safe Act

Posted:
It's been two years since the New York Safe Act has been adopted by the state.

We spoke with Broome County Sheriff David Harder on some of the areas of the New York Safe Act that he says still have issues.

Harder says that they have been trying to reform certain issues through the Sheriff's Association but says that he feels it's falling on deaf ears.

Harder says that ammunition magazines should be ten rounds not seven, because manufacturers don't make seven round mags.

"Well I'd like to see changes at the sheriff's office to be more involved with what's going on. The law was written that the state police control everything. I see that as another way that Governor Cuomo is just trying to control whatever is going on in the state and doesn't care about the local people," said Harder.

Harder says that the New York Safe Act has done well in certain areas. He says that the mental health check ups have been more expedient to work with.
