New York has enacted many new gun laws that all gun owners should be aware of. Here are some links:
New York’s new Gun Safety website
New York’s detailed Concealed Carry Training Info
GOA Lawsuit dismissed in Syracuse Federal Court, Aug. 31
NYODN: Communication Lacking on Gun Laws
The most recent is the Concealed Carry Improvement Act, signed on July 1, 2022. Here is a link to the full text of that legislation, which contains provisions/requirements for all firearms, not just handguns as well as ammunition: https://legislation.nysenate.gov/pdf/bills/2021/S51001
The CCIA was passed after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on June 23, 2022 in the NYS Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen case, that New York’s “may issue” scheme for issuing concealed carry permits was unconstitutional. Here is a link to the ruling: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/20-843_7j80.pdf
In May, Gov. Hochul signed a package of gun legislation that include the following:
A10503/S9458: Requires a license to purchase or take possession of a semiautomatic rifle, bans those under the age of 21 from purchasing or possessing a semi-automatic rifle.
A7926/S4116: Requires that semi-automatic pistols sold in this state be verified as a microstamping-enabled pistol.
A10428/S9229: Eliminates the grandfathering of large capacity ammunition feeding devices that were lawfully possessed prior to the enactment of the SAFE Act or manufactured prior to 1994.
And, for good measure, here is a link to the NY Safe Act, passed in 2013: https://safeact.ny.gov
