Guest column: SAFE-ACT has serious flaws, won’t work in the long run

My opinion of the New York Safe Ammunition and Firearms Act (SAFE-ACT) is as follows: Lawmakers feel desperate to do something in the wake of violence in American schools and American society in general. I get it. The next time something horrible happens in an American school or workplace, the lawmakers can say they were trying, we have a new law and it will help. It’s not that their hearts are in the wrong place, they have children and families they worry about, too. It’s their reasoning and intellect that is not in the right place.
