State Considering Changes to NY-SAFE Act

Governor Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders are considering changes in New York’s new gun control law including eliminating a provision that limits magazines to seven bullets. 

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says that’s one of several, mostly technical changes to the nation’s toughest gun control measure signed into law in January one month after the Newtown, Connecticut shootings. Silver says the leaders are considering the change because seven-bullet magazines aren’t manufactured. The standard is 10-bullet magazines. Silver calls it one of the “inconsistencies” in the law that need to be fixed.
