The head of the Conservative Party in New York is furious Senate Republicans allowed a vote on Governor Cuomo's gun control legislation that ultimately was signed into law. 

Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long says GOP lawmakers "made a very serious mistake" and risk eroding their base in the Empire State over the vote. Long ultimately blasted the measure as a "political charade" that only boosts the governor's political standing.

The NY SAFE bill passed convincingly in both the senate and the assembly by votes of 43-18 and 104-43, respectively. Local politicians, Asemblyman Steve Hawley and Senator Michael Ranzenhofer, both criticized the legislation's hurried process which allowed for little community input.
