Ny Politican Says Safe Act Unconstitutional

01.19.15 | Bob Price

State Senator Robert Ortt of Niagara County has launched a bill to repeal the SAFE Act. He says the requirement that mental health professionals submit to the state the names of the patients who could hurt themselves or others is an abuse of power. Last year, more than 35,000 names for a no-gun list were sent to Albany by mental health professionals. The senator questions how such a decision is made. He says the process is completely arbitrary. Governor Cuomo defends the safe act as a way to protect the public.
