Photo from WXXI This morning, we reported on the growing activism in the North Country that aims to repeal New York’s SAFE Act, passed in January. Some really strong and passionate arguments are being made in favor of rolling back the law, which was inspired by the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut and Webster, New York. Meanwhile, here’s an update on gun fatalties in the US since Newtown: 2,506 gun fatalities. That’s after Sandy Hook. Out of that tally, 80 of the deaths are here in New York state and 43 of the fatalities were children. Again, that’s in three months, since December 12th of last year.
