What's Legal & What's Not Under NY's Gun Control Law

Now that New York has the nation's toughest gun control law, there is some confusion about what's legal and what's not under the NY SAFE Act.

The law does not affect rifles and shotguns used by traditional sportsmen and hunters. 

It does completely ban all pre-1994 high capacity magazines.

The law also bans any magazine that can hold over 7 rounds.

Existing 10-round magazines will be grandfathered in but may only be loaded with 7 rounds.

The legislation will also require anyone who owns a handgun or an assault rifle to recertify their permit every five years.
