The town of Riga is taking a stand against New York's Safe Act. Last week, the Riga Town Board approved a resolution, saying it supports the second amendment of the Constitution and the right to keep and bear arms.

News10NBC asked Riga Deputy Town Supervisor David Smith what this means for people who live in Riga and if anything will change.  

David Smith, Riga Deputy  Town Supervisor, said, “I don't think it means anything other than we've made a statement in disagreement with Albany, the governor and elected representatives.”

Discussion of the Safe Act has been happening in communities across New York. According to our news partners at Messenger Post, last week, town supervisors in Ontario County heard from constituents upset about the way the law was enacted.
