New York: Anti-gun bills trigger concern, NRSRPA Legislative Report #13

Right now there are no less than 32 anti gun bills going through the legislative process with as many companion bills under consideration in the state senate, including A6108, that would amend the definition of so called “assault weapons” to include additional firearms — many of which are used for hunting and target shooting.
Right now there are no less than 32 anti-gun bills going through the legislative process with as many companion bills under consideration in the state senate, including A6108, that would amend the definition of so-called “assault weapons” to include additional firearms — many of which are used for hunting and target shooting.

In not so many words, the bill defines the terms “detachable magazine,” “muzzle break” and “muzzle compensator;” and authorizes the division of state police to promulgate rules and regulations for the addition of information identifying assault weapons lawfully possessed prior to Jan. 1, 2013 to the pistol and revolver ballistic identification databank.

Another (A6774) relates to the purchasing of bullets for firearms; requiring the purchaser of bullets for any firearm to fill out an application providing information regarding the purchaser’s name, date of birth, address, and also the caliber, make, model, manufacturer’s name and serial number of the firearm for which the applicant is purchasing the bullets, with copies of the application forwarded to all law enforcement agencies of the state.

How many of these bills will reach the floor remains to be seen, but one (A1157b), a bill that would result in banning firearms here in New York, went into its third reading on Monday and will soon come up for a vote.  (Microstamping bill)
