    I am going to be setting up meetings with my elected officials to combat this legislation. I would love to have time today to formulate rebuttals to this, but I have site visits for work all day, and cannot spend the time right now. Will anyone Help?

    For those of you that don't know, there is more than enough support from the governor and the house, and about half the senate will support it. This stuff has a great chance of passing.

    Recommended Legislation from NYS:

    Stronger Gun Laws: A Plan to Protect New Yorkers
    Require Universal Background Checks on the Sale of all Guns

     Require all gun sales, including sales between individuals, to go through a licensed firearms dealer where a background check can be performed and proper records kept.

     Require criminal background checks on all gun dealer employees handling guns.
    Strengthen Assault Weapons Ban

     Broaden the definition of assault weapon to ban any weapon that has one prohibited characteristic rather than two as specified in current law. Include a provision for the Superintendent of State Police to review new assault weapons and add them to a list of banned weapons if they meet statutory criteria. Currently New York City has such a ban.

     Ban possession and sale – no grandfathering. Strengthen High Capacity Ammunition Magazine Ban

     Ban possession and sale of all high capacity ammunition magazines over 10 bullets.
    Microstamping Legislation to Help Law Enforcement Solve Gun Crimes

     Require all semi-automatic handguns sold or delivered in New York to be equipped with a new technology that imprints a unique code onto the shell casings every time a gun is fired, so that guns can be traced from shell casings found at crime scenes.
    Require Gun Licenses to be Renewed Every 5 Years

     Require 5-year renewable licenses for all those owning handguns. Currently licenses are only required to be renewed in New York City, on Long Island and in Westchester.
    Improve Gun Dealer Regulations

     Require gun dealers to have stringent recordkeeping, submit inventory to law enforcement, store firearms safely, and report lost or stolen firearms.
    Regulate Ammunition Sales

     Require background checks or showing of a permit on all ammunition sales. Look into types of ammunition sold if one does not have a handgun permit.
    One Gun a Month

     Limit people to the purchase of no more than one handgun a month.
