New York Democrats Block Pro-Gun Reforms To SAFE Act

posted on June 27, 2015

Although legislation (S05837) reforming New York state’s anti-gun SAFE Act was approved with bipartisan support in the state Senate earlier this month, both houses of the legislature in Albany adjourned this week without reaching a deal to pass the bill.

The so-called “SAFE Act,” which was rammed through the Albany statehouse with little time for deliberation or debate following the tragedy at Sandy Hook, imposed a variety of onerous new anti-gun restrictions, including a ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, centralized reporting and registration of ammunition sales, registration of semi-automatic firearms and their owners, an expansion of the definition of banned “assault weapons,” and more.

Although some Republicans won their elections last year by pledging to repeal or reform the SAFE Act, they were unable to win over enough Democrats in the state Assembly to pass the same legislation that had already cleared the Senate.
