TOPIC: New York's new gun control law
Created by: Nkenswing
Original Starting post for this thread:
Called the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, New York's law:

•Bans possession of any high-capacity magazines regardless of when they were made or sold. Only clips able to hold up to seven rounds can be sold in the state. Clips able to hold seven to 10 rounds can be possessed, but cannot be loaded with more than seven rounds. If an owner is found to have eight or more bullets in a magazine, he or she could face a misdemeanor charge. •Requires ammunition dealers to do background checks, similar to those for gun buyers. Dealers are required to report all sales, including amounts, to the state. Internet sales of ammunition are allowed, but the ammunition will have to be shipped to a licensed dealer in New York state for pickup. •Requires creation of a registry of assault weapons. Those New Yorkers who already own such weapons would be required to register their guns with the state. •Requires any therapist who believes a mental health patient made a credible threat of harming others to report the threat to a mental health director, who would then have to report serious threats to the state Department of Criminal Justice Services. A patient's gun could be taken from him or her, as well. •Stipulates that stolen guns should be reported within 24 hours. •Tightens the state's description of an "assault" weapon. Previous state law defined an assault weapon as having two "military rifle" features, but the new law reduces that specification to just one feature •Requires background checks for all gun sales, including by private dealers -- except for sales to members of the seller's immediate family.

One of the most controversial elements of the bill is the requirement on providers of mental health services

"For decades mental health workers have had an ethical obligation to report those they think pose a clear and present danger to others to the police and to the person who has been threatened," Caplan said. "Their codes of ethics require them to do so. The new law in New York now makes that reporting a legal duty and gives the therapist a clear set of directions as to how to report and to whom."

Yesterday it was revealed that NYS has a new RAT line for people to police the upstate areas, with the 500.00 incentive they should be pretty good response.

Of course, sales of those scary black 1911's probably soured in NY.

seems Like some Lawmakers in NY are having second thoughts...........

State lawmakers are contemplating an amendment to New York’s just-enacted gun law that would allow people to buy 10-round magazines — which under current law will be banned for sale on April 15. The change was apparently prompted by Democrats (H/T Newsday) including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who passed the SAFE Act into law on Jan. 14. The proposal under discussion would still limit a gun owner to loading a 10-round magazine with seven bullets, though magazines could be fully loaded in one’s home and at designated shooting ranges. Gun rights advocates have said the SAFE Act was a de facto ban on many pistols designed to accept eight-round magazines, which are not currently manufactured. The change would seem to alleviate that concern. The SAFE Act also broadened the definition of banned assault weapons, increased penalties for illegal gun possession, reduced public access to gun permit information, and allowed mental health professionals to report concerns about a gun-owning patient who posed a risk of harming himself or others.

York Arms Cancels All Its New York Police Orders February 14, 2013

Buxton, ME --(Ammoland . com)- Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York.

We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.

As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

For “civilian” customers residing in New York: At your choice, we will:

Complete your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY.

Refund your payment in full.

Hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.

For LE/Govt customers in New York: Your orders have been cancelled.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Buffalo-based attorney who is spear-heading a lawsuit against Governor Andrew Cuomo's recent gun laws said that Wednesday was "monumental," as a State Supreme Court Justice issued an order requiring New York State to show good cause that the law is constitutional.

New York State has until April 29 to respond or else an injunction will be issued.

On Thursday, thousands are expected in Albany to rally against the Governor's gun laws. Many are looking to preserve local jobs at places such as Remington Arms, while others say they are just citizens who feel that their Second Amendments are being infringed upon.
