Default NY passes new state gun laws

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers agreed to pass the toughest gun control law in the nation

Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two "military rifle" features, such as folding stock, muzzle flash suppressor or bayonet mount. The proposal would reduce that to one feature, including the popular pistol grip. The language specifically targeted the military-style rifle used in the Newtown shootings.

Current owners of those guns will have to register them.

Private sales of assault weapons to someone other than an immediate family would be subject to a background check through a dealer. New Yorkers also would be barred from buying assault weapons over the Internet, and failing to safely store a weapon could lead to a misdemeanor charge.

Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current 10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.

Stores that sell ammunition will have to register with the state, run background checks on buyers of bullets and keep an electronic database of bullet sales.

The measure passed the Senate 43-18 on the strength of support from Democrats, many of whom previously sponsored bills that were once blocked by Republicans. The Democrat-led Assembly gaveled out before midnight and planned to take the issue up at 10 a.m. Tuesday. It is expected to pass easily.

The governor confirmed the proposal, previously worked out in closed session, also would mandate a police registry of assault weapons, grandfathering in assault weapons already in private hands.

and so it begins

No one makes 7 rd mags. So in effect, it makes any gun with 10+ rd. mags illegal

Not likely. The manufactures aren't going to change the assembly line to cater to one state. What they may do is make some kind of plug that can be installed in them.

Per the New York Senate website, the limitation of 7 rounds in a magazine is being addressed by grandfathering 10-round magazines possessed up to 90 days after the bill becomes law.

However, you can have no more than 7 rounds in the magazine on the 91st day onward.

So police will be knocking at the door of hundreds of thousands of citizens to check to see if they are complying?

After market mags will be available. Besides, if they are cheaper, 7 rd mags will sell everywhere.

The problem with the plug is ease of removal.

All gunowners in NY will next be required to wear a large yellow Jewish Star patch with the words 'Gun Owner' in the middle of it.



We have more than enough New Yorkers in FL already - please consider alternative states when moving.

Obama Plans 19 Executive Orders on Gun Control

President Barack Obama plans this week to present 19 separate executive orders on gun control and will press for comprehensive legislation to expand gun-purchase background checks, lawmakers made privy to the president’s agenda said Monday, according to the New York Times.

The biggest congressional fight on gun control in early 20 years—which also includes efforts to ban assault weapons and high-capacity clips—could be launched as soon as Wednesday, the Times reports.

But considering the president’s expected inability to get acceptance for his plan through Congress, Obama will not shy away from using executive orders for restrictions he deems necessary, according to the Times.

Those actions are expected to include limits on guns imported from overseas, pressure on federal agencies to improve sharing of mental health records, and directing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct research on gun violence, according to lawmakers informed of the president’s plans, the Times reports.

So Obamaführer supports assault weapons and high cap mags in the hands of Lybian, Egyptian, and Syrian rebels so they can overthrow a tyrannical regime, but not in the hands of American citizens?

Tell ya what if I had the choice in my state which I do I go for the higher mag every time the price (about the same) isn't enough to make a difference.
I'm sure the law abiding citizen wouldn't have a problem leaving them in, it's the criminals that you have to worry about.

Yet another law that only affects people that follow the law. Whats going to stop criminals from buying 15 rd mags from the next state over?
