New York Gun Control Law Exposed: 15 More Measures Left Out Of Final Bill

New York passed the toughest gun control laws in the nation last week. The SAFE Act called for a new assault weapons ban, among other measures. Over this past weekend, New York State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin revealed other measures that were removed from the final bill that was eventually signed into law.

These 15 measures were pulled from the final bill:


1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”

2. Confiscation of ten round clips

3. Statewide database for ALL Guns

4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public

5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”

6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines

7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines

8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month

9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners

10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years

11. State issued pistol permits

12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State

13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers

14. Mandatory locking of guns at home

15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons


This list reveals that gun control advocates were pushing for even harder measures to be included in the bill. But what is most telling is that these advocates were calling for confiscation of so-called “assault weapons” as well as the confiscation of magazines over five_rounds, which would be almost all magazines. Another point to note is that these measures also called for a “database” or registry of all firearms in the state as well as a fee-for-licensing as well as registering.

A Democrat in the assembly urged McLaughlin not to share this list as it would serve to “dampen compromise.”(continued)
