New York Suspends SAFE Act’s Ammunition Sales Database

posted on July 13, 2015

Conceding to Republicans who won control of the New York Senate last year—largely due to voter backlash against the state’s new anti-gun SAFE Act—Democrat N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has agreed to suspend development of the central statewide database of ammunition sales mandated by the law. 

Suspension of the system was part of a “memorandum of understanding” sealed between Senate Republicans and the Cuomo administration.

“We applaud the memorandum of understanding that Senate Majority Leader Flanagan signed today,” said James J. Baker, director of state and local affairs for NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “This is a step in the right direction to restore a degree of sanity after the SAFE Act’s over-the-top demonization of lawful New York gun owners. The Senate Republican Conference did the right thing by ending this unworkable and costly database. Most importantly for gun owners, it removes the prohibition of online ammunition sales.”
