CONTRIBUTED PHOTONew York Gov. Kathy Hochul signing legislation on July 1 bolstering the state’s gun laws. The Greene County Legislature has issued a resolution opposing the laws.

CATSKILL — The Greene County Legislature passed a resolution Monday night strongly opposing the package of state gun legislation enacted in July.

The new gun laws were signed by Gov. Kathy Hochul on July 1 in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling June 23 that struck down a century-old New York gun law that required individuals to show proper cause to obtain a license to carry a concealed firearm.
