New Gun Legislation Affecting Criminal Defense Cases

A major legal development in 2013 is new gun legislation called the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 ( NY SAFE Act ). This new legislation signed by Governor Cuomo is designed to keep guns away from potentially dangerous mental health patients and to ban high-capacity magazines and other assault weapons. The legislation was passed by the New York State Legislature on January 15, 2013.
