Senator Joe Griffo, who represents parts of NNY says he voted against the Governor's gun bill in part because Andy abused legislative due process by declaring an emergency in order to circumvent the three day aging period when a bill is proposed.
The period for comment and debate is an essential part of legislating and while the cake was aleady baked on this one, protocol is important.
Sorry Governor....I agree with the Senator...Due process matters. It serves to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.
