If you haven't heard yet, NY's governor, Andrew Cuomo signed a new bill into effect yesterday. NY now has some of the TOUGHEST gun laws in the United States... The main points of the bill are:
"Among the key points of the legislation are limits on magazines, mandatory license renewal for gun owners every five years, stiffer penalties for bringing guns on school property or using a gun to commit a crime and further restrictions on assault weapons."
It is now a felony ( I believe) for a NYer to purchase an assault weapon on the internet, magazines are limited and cannot hold more then 10 rounds, and all people possessing a firearm MUST reapply for their permits every 5 years.
^^ Here is the actual bill if you care to read it.
I see a lot of people who are upset by the bill, declaring it unconstitutional. What do you think? Are you FOR or AGAINST the bill, would you like to see your state adapt a similar bill?
**Also, for those WHO OWN assault weapons NOW, they are not forced to turn them over, they will be grandfathered in but a year from, yesterday ( I believe) they ALL must be registered, or else they can be seized.
