Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D – NY) applauded his state’s expansion of the current gun control laws on Tuesday telling Breitbart News, “I’m glad New York passed strong legislation. Would I have preferred stronger?—always—without knowing the details of what they did.” The passage of the new gun control laws make the New York legislation the strictest in the nation:
Bans possession of any high-capacity magazines regardless of when they were made or sold. Only clips able to hold up to seven rounds can be sold in the state. Clips able to hold seven to 10 rounds can be possessed, but cannot be loaded with more than seven rounds. If an owner is found to have eight or more bullets in a magazine, he or she could face a misdemeanor charge.
Requires ammunition dealers to do background checks, similar to those for gun buyers. Dealers are required to report all sales, including amounts, to the state. Internet sales of ammunition are allowed, but the ammunition will have to be shipped to a licensed dealer in New York state for pickup.
