WEB Notes: The senators did not have time to read the bill before voting it into law? How many times are we going to hear this garbage? Call it what is it. Can you imagine going to buy a home and looking over a document and the agent says well buddy your time is up sign away. Would you do it? Of course not. It is quite clear the senators are not the ones writing the laws or voting on them. But another entity who is writing the laws and forcing them on the public. “Our” senators should lock this all down. There was no time, give me a break.
On Monday, the Court of Appeals for the Second U.S. Circuit issued a long awaited decision on the constitutionality of the most drastic gun control law in U.S. history, the New York SAFE Act of 2013. The Second Circuit ruled that nearly all of the law does not violate the Second Amendment.
The SAFE (“Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement”) Act was presented to the New York State Senate and passed into law in 15 minutes. No debate was allowed, and senators did not have time to read the bill before voting it into law.
