NEW YORK GUN COMMUNITY ABOUT TO GET SCREWED
#1
Quote:NY Poised to Pass First Gun Bill Since Sandy Hook Shooting

New York lawmakers were poised to vote Monday night to enact tougher anti-violence legislation in what would be the nation's first gun control measure following last month's Connecticut school shooting.
"I think when all is said and done, we are going to pass a comprehensive gun bill today," Sen. Jeffrey Klein told reporters. "I'm very excited about it. I am very confident we are going to vote on a comprehensive bill that will be agreed on by the governor, the Senate and Assembly."

People familiar with closed-door negotiations told The Associated Press a tentative deal was struck over the weekend following the push made by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week in his State of the State speech. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the proposal had not been discussed among rank and file legislators.

The package hits on several fronts including a much tighter assault weapon ban and restrictions on ammunition and the sale and storage of guns, according to final provisions obtained by The Associated Press. The package would also create a mandatory police registry of assault weapons under a more restrictive definition.

All private sales would be subject to a background check done through a licensed dealer and the bill would require the reporting of mentally ill people who say they intend to use a gun illegally, according to the provisions confirmed by five legislative officials.

Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two features spelled out in law. The proposal would reduce that to one feature and include the popular pistol grip.

Private sales of assault weapons to someone other than an immediate family would be subject to a background check through a dealer. Also Internet sales of assault weapons would be banned, and failing to safely store a weapon could be subject 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.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
