One Year Later NY Gun Laws Bring in Changes

December 30, 2013

ALBANY, NY (WENY) --  Nearly a year after passage of the state's new gun law, dealer sales of AR-15 semi-automatic rifles have ended in New York and arrest data show more than 1,000 gun possession charges in New York City were boosted from misdemeanors to felonies.
     Fifty-nine people statewide have been charged with misdemeanors for possessing large-capacity magazines or having more than seven bullets loaded in a magazine.
     Both were outlawed by the law passed last January.
