NY SAFE Act Website, Hotline Launched

The following is a press release from New York State Police:

In an effort to help the public, a website and hotline have been established to answer all questions about the New York SAFE Act.

The Governor's Office has established http://www.nysafeact.com/.

On the website, gun owners and licensed dealers will find a list of frequently asked questions that have been compiled and answered by experts on this new law.

There is also a section on what is and is not considered an assault weapon. This includes photos of weapons, banned features, a list of some of the banned weapons, and those firearms that are NOT considered assault weapons.

The New York State Police have established a hotline 1-855-LAW-GUNS.

The hotline will be available starting Monday, January 21, 2013.

The hotline will run for normal business hours Monday through Friday and will be staffed by State Police members.
