While retailers will try to lure customers with online discounts, glitzy, in-store merchandising and upbeat music, Better Business Bureau serving Upstate New York offered these tips;
- Be diligent and compare product quality and prices.
- Place online orders early.
- Make sure you give your information to credible shopping websites. Also never make purchases on public Wi-Fi.

SAFE Act procedure explanation

As we reported earlier in the week, the state has said that one person in Lewis County AND six people in Jefferson County are viewed as mentally unsafe for gun ownership, due to the New York SAFE act. The state uses the following procedures when determining if someone is fit to own a gun.
First, a mental health professional identifies the person a threat to his or her self or someone else. The mental health professional then files a report to county community services for verification. After that, they send files to Albany, and from there, State Police find out if the person identified has a gun permit. Police then present their findings to the local county court judge. Finally, the judge decides whether or not to suspend or even revoke the permit.
