It won't matter in the context of the entire state, but its clear there are rural pockets of resistance to the state's new gun law and that came out last night as the St. Lawrence County Legislature unanimously passed a resolution opposing the NY SAFE Act.
It's an easy vote for lawmakers, but interesting as St. Lawrence County is among the most liberal in upstate and votes heavily Democratic in state and local elections.
Organizers of the protest at last night's county leg meeting vow to oppose politicians who supported the SAFE Act......But before she worries, Assemblywoman Addie Russell knows what anyone knows....You don't beat something with nothing and there is no real potential challenger.
And despite the hoopla, I'll make a wager with you....St. Lawrence County will vote for Governor Cuomo in 2014.
