Ammunition Background Checks Suspended in New York State
On July 10th, the Cuomo administration’s director of state operations, James Malatras, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan to undo certain aspects of the New York SAFE Act gun control law.
Never implemented since the SAFE Act’s passage in early 2013, a State Police database of all ammunition sales in New York will not go forward in the future, according to State Senate Republicans. The computer database needed to track and monitor such sales has not been completed more than two years after the laws were passed, and when it will be finished has not been disclosed.
