Gun-rights signs allowed to stand under city ordinaces

A controversial gun-rights sign that was ordered to be taken down in Hamburg will be allowed to stay up in Niagara Falls.

Code Enforcement Director Dennis Virtuoso, who is also the Democrat minority leader in the Niagara County Legislature, said the anti-NY SAFE Act sign attacking the bill’s main supporter Gov. Andrew Cuomo, also a Democrat, is allowable under the city ordinance that covers signs, explicitly stating that political speech on specific candidates and issues is legal.

“We made a decision that it is allowed to stay there,” Virtuoso said.

The sign, which reads “N.Y. IS NOT SAFE!!! FIGHT CUOMO PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS,” was ordered to be taken down in Hamburg after town officials there determined it violated an ordinance that does not allow for the painting of words on fences that face outwards.
