WAYNE COUNTY, N.Y. — Wayne County has declared itself a “gun friendly county.”

The Wayne County Board of Supervisors website says the board made the declaration at its meeting on Tuesday.

The declaration says: “The County of Wayne is hereby declared a gun friendly county which shall mean that those properly licensed to possess and carry a handgun shall be able to conceal and carry a handgun throughout the county unless specifically prohibited by statute or owner declaration.”

The board has voiced opposition to laws recently passed by the state which made the requirements for a concealed carry permit more stringent, calling the new process “burdensome.”
