BREAKING: NRA, NY Rifle and Pistol Assoc. file lawsuit challenging SAFE Act...NYS Legislature considers modifying
The National Rifle Association has joined the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association in filing a complaint against the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Act (NY SAFE Act) in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York.

"The National Rifle Association is committed to defending the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding New Yorkers," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. "Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature usurped the legislative and democratic process in passing these extreme anti-gun measures with no committee hearings and no public input. This obvious disrespect for New Yorkers and their Second Amendment rights will not be tolerated."

Opponents of the controversial new gun laws say the SAFE Act threatens "severe" penalties for previously lawful activities, such as owning certain commonly owned firearms, ammunition magazines and ammunition.

There have been three large rallies in Albany to speak out against the SAFE Act.

NYS Legislature considers modifying NY SAFE Act

Albany, NY, Mar 20, 2013 New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders are talking about amendments to the state's new gun control laws.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, following a closed door meeting with Governor Cuomo and other legislative leaders, said talks are underway to possibly re-legalize possession of 10 bullet magazines -- in some instances. Currently, only seven bullets are allowed in a magazine, except at shooting ranges and special competitions.

Silver says it doesn't make sense to allow the 10 bullets at the shooting range, when gun owners are only allowed to carry seven bullets everywhere else.

"The law basically is inconsistent," said Silver. "In that you can't possess more than 10, but you can take 10 to the shooting range. It's under discussion."
