BILL NUMBER:S2230

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the criminal procedure law, the correction law,
the family court act, the executive law,
the general business law, the judiciary law,
the mental
hygiene law,
the penal law and
the surrogate's court procedure act,
in relation to suspension and
revocation of firearms
licenses; private
sale or disposal
of firearms, rifles or shotguns and
establishing a minimum
age to possess a firearm;
to amend the family court act, the domestic relations law and the
criminal procedure law, in relation to providing for the mandatory
suspension or revocation of the firearms license of a person against
whom an order of protection or a temporary order of protection has been
issued under certain circumstances, or upon violation of any such order;
to amend the penal law, in relation to
community guns and the
criminal sale of a firearm and in relation to the
definitions of aggravated and first degree murder;
to amend chapter 408 of the laws of 1999 constituting
Kendra's Law,
in relation to extending the expiration thereof; and
to amend the education law, in relation to the New York state
school safety
improvement teams; and
in relation to building aid for metal detectors and
safety devices

PURPOSE:

This legislation will protect New Yorkers by reducing the availability
of assault weapons and deterring the criminal use of firearms while
promoting a fair, consistent and efficient method of ensuring that
sportsmen and other legal gun owners have full enjoyment of the guns
to which they are entitled. A thoughtful network of laws provides the
toughest, most comprehensive and balanced answer in the nation to gun
violence. Through this legislation, New York is the first in the
nation to completely ban all pre-1994 high capacity magazines; to ban
any magazine that holds more than seven rounds (rather
than a limit of ten) and to both track ammunition purchases in real
time to permit alerts on high volume buyers, while also checking on
the buyer's background.

In a range of reforms the bill attends to the weaknesses in the
state's current regulatory structure to bring a consistency and
rationality that must be the cornerstone of a safe society. A single
standard across the State will ensure that legal gun owners obtain
their licenses expeditiously while those prohibited are denied that


privilege. A statewide database will keep the registry current and
guard against the dangerous or unstable possessing guns. New rules
will close a loophole that excludes private sales of guns from a
federal background check; tighten provisions governing gun ownership
by persons with serious mental illness; require safe storage of guns
for gun owners who live with someone who has been convicted of
certain crimes, is under an order of protection, or who has been
involuntarily committed as a result of a mental illness. The bill
also creates new and enhanced penalties for illegal gun use, and
enhances protections for victims of domestic violence by requiring
the firearm surrenders and gun license suspension and revocation in
cases where an order of protection has been issued.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Assault Weapons

Section 37 of the bill amends Penal Law � 265.00(22) in order to
strengthen New York's assault weapon ban, expanding its reach and
making it easier to enforce. The proposed amendments replace the
existing ban consisting of and a "two-feature" test adopted from the
now-expired federal assault weapons ban with a clearer "one-feature"
test. The "two-feature" test bans any gun that is semi-automatic, has
a detachable magazine (in the case of pistols and rifles), and
possesses two features that are commonly associated with military
weapons. The "one-feature" test would ban semi-automatic guns with
detachable magazines that possess one feature commonly associated
with military weapons. This section also adds to the list of
"features" that characterize a banned weapon.

Within one year of the effective date, all weapons defined as assault
weapons under the new "one-feature" test, as well as weapons
grandfathered in under the original assault weapons ban, must be
registered. Current owners of these banned weapons may transfer the
weapons only to a firearms dealer or transfer to an out of state
buyer. All registered owners will be subject to a review of
disqualifiers by the State Police.

Ammunition

Section 38 of the bill amends Penal Law � 265.00(23) to ban all large
capacity magazines that have the capacity to hold more than ten
rounds of ammunition including those that were grandfathered in under
the original assault weapons ban and creates a new ban on magazines
that hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. Magazines that can
hold more than seven rounds but not more than ten rounds and are
currently possessed will be grandfathered in, but may only contain
seven rounds of ammunition. Exceptions are made for large capacity
magazines that are curios or relics.

Section 39 also adds a new section to Penal Law � 265.00 to define
seller of ammunition.

Section 50 of the bill enhances control over sales of ammunition by
adding a new Penal Law � 400.03 requiring (1) that sellers of


ammunition register with the superintendent of the State police (2)
that prior to a sale of ammunition, a seller must run the buyer
through a State-created review of disqualifiers to ensure that the
buyer is not prohibited by law from possessing ammunition, and (3)
that ammunition sales are electronically accessible to the State. In
addition, to prevent from purchasing ammunition, the bill requires
that any ammunition sold commercially must be conducted by a seller
that can perform a background check.

Licensing

Section 49 creates a new Penal Law � 400.02 establishing a statewide
gun license and record database. Section 18 amends Section 212 of the
Judiciary Law to require that records submitted to the Federal Bureau
of Investigation regarding individuals for whom a guardian has been
appointed be transmitted to the State and checked against the
statewide gun license and record database.

Several sections of the bill strengthen statutory provisions related
to the licensing of firearms, shotguns, and rifles. Section 1 amends
Criminal Procedure Law (CPL) � 330.20 to require the revocation of
any gun license from and the surrender of any gun by a defendant upon
an entry of a verdict of not responsible by reason of mental disease
or defect, upon
the acceptance of a plea of not responsible by reason of mental
disease or defect, or upon a finding that a defendant is an
incapacitated person pursuant to the CPL. Section 2 adds a new
section to the CPL that requires a sentencing judge to demand
surrender of a gun license or registration and all guns possessed by
the defendant upon judgment of conviction for an offense that
requires the seizure of a gun and the revocation of a gun license or
registration. Sections 4 through 16 amend the Family Court Act, the
Domestic Relations Law and the CPL to require, under certain
circumstances, the mandatory suspension or revocation of the firearms
license of a person against whom an order of protection or a
temporary order of protection has been issued.

Section 48 of the bill amends the Penal Law to require that every
county recertify a gun license holder's license every five years.
Failure to recertify during this five year period equates to
revocation of the license. The section also adds bases for denial of
a license to an applicant, including connection of a felony or
serious offense, being presently subject to an order of protection;
and expands the criteria for denial based on an applicant's history
of mental illness.

Private Sales

Under current New York law, background checks on gun purchasers are
required for all purchases of guns from gun dealers and at gun shows.
Section 17 will expand this requirement by adding a new article to
the General Business Law requiring background checks to be completed
for all gun sales, except for immediate family. Thus private sellers
may transfer a gun only if the buyer has obtained a federal "NICS"
check. Further, dealers


must maintain records of private sale background checks, and private
sellers may charge a fee of up to $10 on a transaction. Transfers
between immediate family members will be exempt from the requirements
of this section.

Safe Storage

To prevent, among other things, unauthorized and unlicensed use of
guns, section 47 of the bill adds a new Penal Law � 265.45
establishing safe storage requirements for rifles, shotguns and
firearms. Under this new section, a gun owner who lives with someone
who the owner has reason to know is prohibited from possessing a gun
because the prohibited person has been convicted of a crime
punishable by a term of imprisonment exceeding one year, has been
adjudicated mentally defective or committed to a mental institution,
is subject to a court order of protection or has been convicted of a
misdemeanor crime of domestic violence whose sentence has been
completed in the last five years must, when the gun is out of the
owner's immediate control, keep the gun secured in a safe storage
depository (for example, a safe or similar secure container with a
lock that can be opened only with a key or combination, or other
locking mechanism) or render it incapable of being fired by putting a
safety lock on the gun.

Provisions Related to Persons with Mental Illness

Amendments to the Mental Hygiene Law will help ensure that persons who
are mentally ill and dangerous cannot retain or obtain a firearm.
First, mental health records that are currently sent to NIDCS for a
federal background check will also be housed in a New York State
database. A new Section 9.46 of the Mental Hygiene Law will require
mental health professionals, in the exercise of reasonable
professional judgment, to report if an individual they are treating
is likely to engage in conduct that will cause serious harm to
him- or herself or others. A good faith decision about whether to report
will not be a basis for any criminal or civil liability. When a
Section 9.46 report is made, the Division of Criminal Justice
Services will determine whether the person possesses a firearms
license and, if so, will notify the appropriate local licensing
official, who must suspend the license. The person's firearms will
then be removed.

The bill extends Kendra's Law through 2017 and amends the law by:
extending the duration of the initial assisted out-patient treatment
order from 6 months to one year; requiring a review before the
assisted out-patient treatment order for a mentally ill inmate is
terminated; requiring an assisted out-patient treatment order to
follow a person from one county to another if he or she changes
residence; and will require the Office of Mental Hygiene (OMH) to
conduct an assisted out-patient treatment assessment with a state
prisoner is being discharged to the community from and OHM hospital.

New and Enhanced Criminal Penalties


Several sections of the bill create new and enhanced penalties for
illegal gun use. Sections 33 through 36, known as "Mark's Law," will
include the intentional murder of certain first responders in the
Class A-1 felonies of murder in the first degree and
aggravated murder. The mandatory penalty for a conviction of
aggravated murder is life without parole.

A new Penal Law Section 460.22, aggravated enterprise corruption,
recognizes the significant threat to public safety posed by organized
violent gangs and their illegal purchases of weapons by creating an
A-1 felony for cases when members of the enterprise commit certain
combinations of offenses. Those combinations are: first, a pattern of
criminal activity that constitutes Class B felonies or higher, and at
least two of those acts are armed felonies; or second, one act is a
Class B violent felony and two acts constitute a violation of the
newly added Section 265.17 (3) which prohibits the purchase on behalf
of or disposal of a weapon to an individual who is prohibited by law
from possessing such a weapon. This provision also addresses the
issue of "straw purchasers" where individuals who are not prohibited
by law to purchase weapons do so for others, for example, gang
members who may not possess a weapon because of a prior conviction or
other disability under law.

Section 41 increases the penalty for possession of a firearm on school
grounds or on a school bus from a misdemeanor to a Class E Felony.
Section 41-a creates a new subdivision of criminal possession of a
weapon in the third degree, a Class D violent felony, when a person
possesses an unloaded firearm and also commits a drug trafficking
felony or possesses an unloaded firearm and also commits any violent
felony as part of the same criminal transaction. The mandatory
minimum sentence for these new Class D felonies is a three and
one-half year determinate sentence, although the court may consider
mitigating factors and impose a lesser sentence in some limited
circumstances involving drug trafficking.

Section 45 creates the crime of aggravated criminal possession of a
weapon, a Class C felony, which is committed when one possesses a
loaded firearm under � 255.03 of the Penal Law and also commits any
violent felony offense or a drug trafficking felony. The minimum
mandatory sentence is 5 years.

Section 32 amends Penal Law � 120.05 by adding a new subdivision 4-a
to create the crime of assault in the second degree when a person
recklessly causes physical injury to a child by the intentional
discharge of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.

Section 43 amends Penal Law � 265.17 to include criminal sale or
disposal of a weapon by providing a firearm, rifle or shotgun to a
person knowing he or she is prohibited by law from possessing such
firearm, rifle or shotgun. The penalty is raised from a Class A
misdemeanor to a Class D felony.

Section 31 adds Penal Law � 115.20 making it a Class A misdemeanor to
make available, sell, exchange, give or dispose of a community gun
that aids a person in committing a crime. A community gun is defined
as one that is made available to among or between two or more persons


at least one of whom is not authorized pursuant to law to possess
such firearm.

Safer Schools

The bill adds a new Section 2801-b to the Education Law to establish
New York State School Safety Improvement Teams to review, assess, and
make recommendations on School Safety Plans submitted by school
districts on a voluntary basis.
Section 3602 of the Education Law is amended to allow school districts
that purchase various security devices included in their School
Safety Plans to receive state building aid reimbursement at a rate
ten percent higher than their current building aid ratio. Section 55
is the severability clause, and Section 56 establishes the effective
date.

EXISTING LAW:

This bill amends the Correction Law, the Criminal Procedure Law, the
Domestic Relations Law, the Executive Law, the Family Court Act, the
General Business Law, the Judiciary Law, Kendra's Law (Section 18 of
Chapter 408 of the Laws of 1999, as amended by Chapter 139 of the
Laws of 2010), the Mental Hygiene Law, the Penal Law, and the
Surrogates Court Act.

STATEMENT IN SUPPORT:

In the wrong hands, guns are weapons of untold destruction and
heartbreak: family and community members are taken from us in an
instant; mass shootings shatter our sense of safety in public spaces;
street crimes plague our neighborhoods. Nationwide, gun violence
claims over 30,000 lives annually.

While the Second Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms,
the Supreme Court has said that that right is "not unlimited."
District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 595, 626 (2008). In the
Heller case, the Supreme Court explained, "nothing in our opinion
should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the
possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws
forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as
schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and
qualifications on the commercial sale of arms." 554 U.S. at 626-27.
The Court also recognized there is a "historical tradition of
prohibiting the carrying of 'dangerous and unusual' weapons." Id.
This piece of legislation heeds the guidance of the Supreme Court by
refining and improving the assault weapon ban and increasing the
safety of New Yorkers while observing the protections of the Second
Amendment.

Some weapons are so dangerous and some ammunition devices so lethal
that we simply cannot afford to continue selling them in our state.
Assault weapons that have military-style features unnecessary for
hunting and sporting purposes are this kind of weapon. The test
adopted in this legislation is intended to bring a simplicity of
definition focusing on the lethality of the weapon, amplified by the
particular features. Given the difficulty of maintaining a list of


guns that keeps pace with changes in weapon design, the one-feature
test is a more comprehensive means for addressing these dangerous
weapons.

Ammunition

The state's previous ban against high capacity magazines faltered
because it was impossible to tell the difference between magazines
manufactured before or after the effective date of the ban. This bill
prohibits possession of all magazines with the capacity to contain
more than ten rounds, regardless of the date of manufacture. Going
forward, individuals will only be able to obtain magazines that can
contain up to seven rounds. Those who currently possess magazines
that can contain more than seven rounds will only be permitted to
maintain up to seven rounds in such magazines.

The new law also provides a mechanism to identify individual who
purchase unusually high volumes of ammunition, either in person or
over the Internet. Sellers must run the buyer's name through a State
database modeled after the federal "NICS" database to ensure the
buyer is not prohibited by law from possessing ammunition. Ammunition
sellers are also required to electronically file with the State
records of each ammunition sale, including amount sold.

In order to prevent circumvention of these new controls, this bill
requires that any seller--whether located in New York or out of
state-ship the ammunition to a dealer within New York for in-person
pick-up. The dealer is required to maintain records of the ammunition
sale and to perform a State review of disqualifiers. Direct shipment
of ammunition without a face-to-face transaction prevents a seller
from being able to adequately confirm the identity of a buyer through
the in-person inspection of a valid photo ID. Without adequate
confirmation of a buyer's identity, the benefits of background checks
and record keeping are completely circumvented. A law requiring all
ammunition sales to culminate in a face-to-face transfer, thereby
allowing for effective confirmation of purchaser identity and
corresponding background check, is consistent with this scheme.

Licensing

Currently in New York State, outside of New York City, Westchester,
Nassau and Suffolk Counties, a gun license never expires. Lack of a
renewal procedure means there is no periodic review of a licensee's
qualifications. Thus, if a license holder becomes disqualified from
carrying a gun subsequent to obtaining a license, he or she will
likely retain the license. This law requires every license holder to
recertify the licensee's gun license every five years. Failure of a
licensee to have his or her license recertified will result in
revocation of the license.

In addition, in order to ensure that legal gun license holders receive
their licenses as swiftly as possible and to ensure the swift and
accurate ability to match license holders with disqualifying events
such as a felony conviction, the bill establishes an electronic
license and record database. The electronic database will permit


regular matching by the State against records of prohibited persons
(e.g., those with criminal histories, orders of protection, and
mental illnesses that bar gun ownership and licensing) as well as
against other databases such as death records to ensure that New
York's license records are up to date.

Furthermore, orders of protection are intended to protect victims of
domestic violence from their abusers and prevent violent crimes from
occurring. This bill enhances protections for victims of domestic
violence by strengthening the provisions regarding the possession and
surrender of firearms and the suspension and revocation of, and
ineligibility for, licenses by individuals who are the respondents in
an order of protection. The bill makes changes to the Family Court
Act to conform to the 2007 amendments made to the CPL.

Private Gun Sales

Under current New York law, background checks on purchasers are
required for all purchases of guns from gun dealers and at gun shows,
however, individuals that purchase guns through private sellers are
not required to undergo background checks. This bill requires
background checks for all gun sales, including private sales,
ensuring that otherwise disqualified individuals cannot circumvent
the law by obtaining guns buying from a private seller.

Safe Storage

To prevent unauthorized possession and use of guns, this bill requires
anyone who owns a gun or who lives with someone who the owner has
reason to know is disqualified from possessing a gun under certain
provisions of federal law to secure any gun in a safe storage
depository or render it incapable of being fired by putting a safety
lock on the gun if it is to be outside the owner's direct control.

Persons with Mental Illness

This bill adds provisions to revoke or suspend licenses of individuals
with mental illness who, in the opinion of mental health
professionals would pose a danger to themselves or others should they
possess guns. The bill also extends and expands Kendra's Law to
provide additional out-patient treatment services to persons with
mental illness.

New and Enhanced Criminal Penalties

The new and amended sections of the Penal Law are focused on the
methods by which gun violence is often carried out in our
communities, giving law enforcement better tools to punish and deter
such conduct. As the presence of illegal guns on our streets
endangers the welfare of entire communities, these provisions ensure
appropriate penalties for making guns available to prohibited
persons, as well as putting our children at risk by, among other
dangerous and illegal activities, possessing guns near school


grounds. In addition, recognizing the widespread violence caused by
gang activity, the bill establishes penalties for participation in
gang activity resulting in the commission of a violent crime.

The bill also contains new provisions acknowledging the danger that
our first
responders face every day as they protect other New Yorkers by
establishing an enhanced
penalty for knowingly causing the death of a first responder in the
course of his or her duties.

 sion  (j)  and  subdivisions  (k)  and (n) of section 9.60 of the mental
 hygiene law, as amended by chapter 158 of the laws of 2005, are  amended
 to read as follows:

 (3)  "director  of  community  services" and "local governmental unit"
 shall have the same meanings as provided in article  forty-one  of  this
 chapter.  THE "APPROPRIATE DIRECTOR" SHALL MEAN THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNI
 TY SERVICES OF THE COUNTY WHERE THE ASSISTED OUTPATIENT RESIDES, EVEN IF
 IT  IS  A DIFFERENT COUNTY THAN THE COUNTY WHERE THE ASSISTED OUTPATIENT
 TREATMENT ORDER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED.
 (2) If after hearing all relevant evidence, the court finds  by  clear
 and  convincing  evidence  that  the  subject  of the petition meets the
 criteria for assisted outpatient treatment, and there is no  appropriate
 and  feasible  less  restrictive  alternative,  the  court may order the
 subject to receive assisted outpatient treatment for an  initial  period
 not to exceed [
<del>six months</del>] ONE YEAR.  In fashioning the order, the court
 shall  specifically  make findings by clear and convincing evidence that
 the proposed treatment is the least  restrictive  treatment  appropriate
 and  feasible  for the subject. The order shall state an assisted outpa
 tient treatment plan, which shall include  all  categories  of  assisted
 outpatient  treatment,  as set forth in paragraph one of subdivision (a)
 of this section, which the assisted outpatient is to receive, but  shall
 not  include any such category that has not been recommended in both the
 proposed written treatment plan and the testimony provided to the  court
 pursuant to subdivision (i) of this section.
 (5)  If  the petitioner is the director of a hospital that operates an
 assisted outpatient treatment program, the court order shall direct  the
 hospital  director  to provide or arrange for all categories of assisted
 outpatient treatment for the assisted outpatient throughout  the  period
 of  the order. [
<del>For all other persons</del>] IN ALL OTHER INSTANCES, the order
 shall require the APPROPRIATE director [
<del>of  community  services  of  the</del>
 
<del>appropriate  local  governmental  unit</del>], AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THIS
 SECTION, to provide or arrange for all categories of assisted outpatient
 treatment for the assisted  outpatient  throughout  the  period  of  the
 order.
 (k)  Petition  for  additional  periods of treatment. (1) PRIOR TO THE
 EXPIRATION OF AN ORDER PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, THE APPROPRIATE  DIREC
 TOR  SHALL  REVIEW WHETHER THE ASSISTED OUTPATIENT CONTINUES TO MEET THE
 CRITERIA FOR ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT. IF,  AS  DOCUMENTED  IN  THE
 PETITION,  THE DIRECTOR DETERMINES THAT SUCH CRITERIA CONTINUE TO BE MET
 OR HAS MADE APPROPRIATE ATTEMPTS TO, BUT  HAS  NOT  BEEN  SUCCESSFUL  IN
 ELICITING,  THE  COOPERATION OF THE SUBJECT TO SUBMIT TO AN EXAMINATION,
        S. 2230                            12                            A. 2388
 WITHIN THIRTY DAYS PRIOR TO THE  EXPIRATION  OF  AN  ORDER  OF  ASSISTED
 OUTPATIENT  TREATMENT,  SUCH  DIRECTOR  MAY  PETITION THE COURT TO ORDER
 CONTINUED ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT PURSUANT  TO  PARAGRAPH  TWO  OF
 THIS  SUBDIVISION. UPON DETERMINING WHETHER SUCH CRITERIA CONTINUE TO BE
 MET, SUCH DIRECTOR SHALL NOTIFY THE PROGRAM COORDINATOR IN WRITING AS TO
 WHETHER A  PETITION  FOR  CONTINUED  ASSISTED  OUTPATIENT  TREATMENT  IS
 WARRANTED AND WHETHER SUCH A PETITION WAS OR WILL BE FILED.
 (2) Within thirty days prior to the expiration of an order of assisted
 outpatient  treatment, the appropriate director or the current petition
 er, if the current petition was filed pursuant to  subparagraph  (i)  or
 (ii)  of  paragraph  one  of  subdivision  (e)  of this section, and the
 current petitioner retains his or her original status  pursuant  to  the
 applicable  subparagraph,  may  petition  the  court  to order continued
 assisted outpatient treatment for a period not to exceed one  year  from
 the  expiration date of the current order. If the court's disposition of
 such petition does not occur prior to the expiration date of the current
 order, the current order shall remain in effect until such  disposition.
 The  procedures  for  obtaining  any  order pursuant to this subdivision
 shall be in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing subdivisions
 of this section; provided that the time restrictions included  in  para
 graph  four  of subdivision (c) of this section shall not be applicable.
 The notice provisions set forth in paragraph six of subdivision  (j)  of
 this  section  shall be applicable.   Any court order requiring periodic
 blood tests or urinalysis for the presence of alcohol or  illegal  drugs
 shall  be subject to review after six months by the physician who devel
 oped the written treatment plan or another physician designated  by  the
 director, and such physician shall be authorized to terminate such blood
 tests or urinalysis without further action by the court.
 (n) Failure to comply with assisted outpatient treatment. Where in the
 clinical  judgment  of  a  physician,  (i)  the assisted outpatient, has
 failed or refused to comply with the assisted outpatient treatment, (ii)
 efforts were made to solicit compliance, and (iii) such assisted  outpa
 tient  may be in need of involuntary admission to a hospital pursuant to
 section 9.27 of this article or immediate observation, care  and  treat
 ment  pursuant  to  section 9.39 or 9.40 of this article, such physician
 may request the APPROPRIATE director of community services,  the  direc
 tor's designee, or any physician designated by the director of community
 services pursuant to section 9.37 of this article, to direct the removal
 of  such  assisted outpatient to an appropriate hospital for an examina
 tion to determine if such person has a mental illness for  which  hospi
 talization  is  necessary pursuant to section 9.27, 9.39 or 9.40 of this
 article. Furthermore, if such assisted outpatient refuses to take  medi
 cations as required by the court order, or he or she refuses to take, or
 fails  a  blood test, urinalysis, or alcohol or drug test as required by
 the court order, such physician may consider  such  refusal  or  failure
 when  determining whether the assisted outpatient is in need of an exam
 ination to determine whether he or she has a mental  illness  for  which
 hospitalization  is  necessary.  Upon the request of such physician, the
 APPROPRIATE director, the director's designee, or any  physician  desig
 nated  pursuant  to section 9.37 of this article, may direct peace offi
 cers, acting pursuant to their special duties, or  police  officers  who
 are  members  of  an authorized police department or force or of a sher
 iff's department to take the assisted outpatient into custody and trans
 port him or her to the hospital operating the assisted outpatient treat
 ment program or to any hospital authorized by the director of  community
 services  to  receive such persons. Such law enforcement officials shall
        S. 2230                            13                            A. 2388
 carry out such directive. Upon the request of such physician, the APPRO
 PRIATE director, the director's designee, or  any  physician  designated
 pursuant  to  section  9.37  of  this  article, an ambulance service, as
 defined  by  subdivision two of section three thousand one of the public
 health law, or an approved mobile crisis outreach  team  as  defined  in
 section  9.58  of  this article shall be authorized to take into custody
 and transport any such person to the  hospital  operating  the  assisted
 outpatient treatment program, or to any other hospital authorized by the
 APPROPRIATE  director of community services to receive such persons. Any
 director of community services, or  designee,  shall  be  authorized  to
 direct  the  removal  of an assisted outpatient who is present in his or
 her county to an appropriate hospital, in accordance with the provisions
 of this subdivision, based  upon  a  determination  of  the  appropriate
 director  of  community  services directing the removal of such assisted
 outpatient pursuant to this subdivision. Such person may be retained for
 observation, care and treatment and further examination in the  hospital
 for  up  to seventy-two hours to permit a physician to determine whether
 such person has a mental illness and is in need of involuntary care  and
 treatment  in a hospital pursuant to the provisions of this article. Any
 continued involuntary retention in  such  hospital  beyond  the  initial
 seventy-two  hour  period  shall be in accordance with the provisions of
 this article relating to the involuntary admission and  retention  of  a
 person.  If at any time during the seventy-two hour period the person is
 determined  not  to  meet  the  involuntary  admission   and   retention
 provisions  of  this article, and does not agree to stay in the hospital
 as a voluntary or informal patient, he or she must be released.  Failure
 to  comply  with  an order of assisted outpatient treatment shall not be
 grounds for involuntary civil commitment or a  finding  of  contempt  of
 court.

 amended by chapter 168 of the laws  of  2010,  is  amended  to  read  as

 (2) The commissioner shall establish within the office for people with
 developmental disabilities an administrative process to permit a  person
 who  has  been  or  may  be  disqualified from possessing such a firearm
 pursuant to 18 USC 922(4)(d), OR WHO HAS BEEN  OR  MAY  BE  DISQUALIFIED
 FROM  CONTINUING TO HAVE A LICENSE TO CARRY, POSSESS, REPAIR, OR DISPOSE
 OF A FIREARM UNDER SECTION 400.00 OF THE PENAL LAW BECAUSE  SUCH  PERSON
 WAS  INVOLUNTARILY COMMITTED OR CIVILLY CONFINED TO A FACILITY UNDER THE
 JURISDICTION OF THE COMMISSIONER, to petition for relief from that disa
 bility where such person's record and  reputation  are  such  that  such
 person  will not be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety
 and where the granting of the relief would not  be  contrary  to  public
 safety.  The  commissioner shall promulgate regulations to establish the
 relief from disabilities program, which shall include, but not be limit
 ed to, provisions providing for: (i) an opportunity for  a  disqualified
 person  to  petition  for  relief in writing; (ii) the authority for the

 sion in writing explaining the reasons for a denial or grant of  relief.
 The denial of a petition for relief from disabilities may be reviewed de
 novo  pursuant  to  the  proceedings  under article seventy-eight of the
 civil practice law and rules.

 displays a loaded weapon from which a shot, readily capable of producing

 sentence  shall not be imposed if the court, having regard to the nature
 and circumstances of the crime and to the history and character  of  the
 defendant, finds on the record that such additional consecutive sentence

 those  hours  of  a  firearms  safety course pertaining to the safe use,
 carrying, possession, maintenance and storage of  a  firearm;  and  (ii)

 (N) concerning whom no good cause exists for the denial of the  license.
 No person shall engage in the business of gunsmith or dealer in firearms
 unless licensed pursuant to this section. An applicant to engage in such
 business  shall  also be a citizen of the United States, more than twen
 ty-one years of age and maintain a place of  business  in  the  city  or
 county  where the license is issued. For such business, if the applicant
 is a firm or partnership, each member thereof shall comply with  all  of
 the requirements set forth in this subdivision and if the applicant is a
 corporation, each officer thereof shall so comply.
 (a)  Applications  shall be made and renewed, in the case of a license
 to carry or possess a pistol or revolver, to the  licensing  officer  in
 the  city or county, as the case may be, where the applicant resides, is
 principally employed or has his OR HER principal place  of  business  as
 merchant  or  storekeeper;  and, in the case of a license as gunsmith or
 dealer in firearms, to the licensing officer where such place  of  busi
 ness  is  located.  Blank  applications shall, except in the city of New
 York, be approved as to form by the superintendent of state police.   An
 application shall state the full name, date of birth, residence, present
 occupation of each person or individual signing the same, whether or not
 he  OR  SHE  is a citizen of the United States, whether or not he OR SHE
 complies with each requirement for eligibility specified in  subdivision
 one  of this section and such other facts as may be required to show the
 good character, competency and integrity of each  person  or  individual
 signing  the application. An application shall be signed and verified by
 the applicant. Each individual signing an application shall  submit  one
 photograph  of himself OR HERSELF and a duplicate for each required copy
 of the application. Such photographs shall have been taken within thirty
 days prior to filing the application. In case of a license  as  gunsmith
        S. 2230                            27                            A. 2388
 or  dealer  in  firearms,  the photographs submitted shall be two inches
 square, and the application shall also state the previous occupation  of
 each  individual  signing the same and the location of the place of such
 business,  or  of the bureau, agency, subagency, office or branch office
 for which the license is sought, specifying the name of the  city,  town
 or  village,  indicating the street and number and otherwise giving such
 apt description as to point out reasonably the location thereof. In such
 case, if the applicant is a firm, partnership or corporation, its  name,
 date  and  place  of formation, and principal place of business shall be
 stated. For such firm or partnership, the application  shall  be  signed
 and  verified  by  each individual composing or intending to compose the
 same, and for such corporation, by each officer thereof.
 4. Investigation. Before a license is issued or renewed,  there  shall
 be an investigation of all statements required in the application by the
 duly  constituted police authorities of the locality where such applica
 tion is made, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SUCH RECORDS AS MAY BE ACCES
 SIBLE TO THE DIVISION OF STATE POLICE OR DIVISION  OF  CRIMINAL  JUSTICE
 SERVICES  PURSUANT TO SECTION 400.02 OF THIS ARTICLE.  For that purpose,
 the records of the  appropriate  office  of  the  department  of  mental
 hygiene  concerning  previous or present mental illness of the applicant
 shall be available for inspection by the investigating  officer  of  the
 police  authority.   In order to ascertain any previous criminal record,
 the investigating officer  shall  take  the  fingerprints  and  physical
 descriptive  data in quadruplicate of each individual by whom the appli
 cation is signed and verified. Two copies of such fingerprints shall  be
 taken  on  standard  fingerprint cards eight inches square, and one copy
 may be taken on a card supplied for that purpose by the  federal  bureau
 of  investigation;  provided,  however,  that in the case of a corporate
 applicant that has already been issued a dealer in firearms license  and
 seeks  to  operate  a  firearm  dealership  at  a  second  or subsequent
 location, the original fingerprints on file may be used to ascertain any
 criminal record in the second or subsequent application  unless  any  of
 the  corporate  officers  have  changed  since the prior application, in
 which case the  new  corporate  officer  shall  comply  with  procedures
 governing  an  initial application for such license. When completed, one
 standard card shall be forwarded to and  retained  by  the  division  of
 criminal  justice  services  in  the  executive department, at Albany. A
 search of the files of such division and  written  notification  of  the
 results of the search to the investigating officer shall be made without
 unnecessary delay.  Thereafter, such division shall notify the licensing
 officer  and the executive department, division of state police, Albany,
 of any criminal record of the applicant filed therein subsequent to  the
 search  of its files. A second standard card, or the one supplied by the
 federal bureau of investigation, as the case may be, shall be  forwarded
 to that bureau at Washington with a request that the files of the bureau
 be searched and notification of the results of the search be made to the
 investigating  police  authority. [
<del>The failure or refusal of the federal</del>
 
<del>bureau of investigation to make the fingerprint check  provided  for  in</del>
 
<del>this  section shall not constitute the sole basis for refusal to issue a</del>
 
<del>permit pursuant to the provisions of this section.</del>] Of the remaining two
 fingerprint cards, one shall be filed  with  the  executive  department,
 division  of state police, Albany, within ten days after issuance of the
 license, and the other remain on  file  with  the  investigating  police
 authority.  No  such  fingerprints  may be inspected by any person other
 than a peace officer, who is acting pursuant to his special duties, or a
 police officer, except on order of a judge or  justice  of  a  court  of
        S. 2230                            28                            A. 2388
 record  either  upon  notice  to  the licensee or without notice, as the
 judge or justice may deem appropriate. Upon completion of  the  investi
 gation,  the  police authority shall report the results to the licensing
 officer without unnecessary delay.
 5.    Filing  of  approved applications.   (A) The application for any
 license, if granted, shall be filed by the licensing  officer  with  the
 clerk  of  the  county  of issuance, except that in the city of New York
 and, in the counties of Nassau and Suffolk, the licensing officer  shall
 designate  the  place  of  filing in the appropriate division, bureau or
 unit of the police department thereof, and in the county of Suffolk  the
 county  clerk  is  hereby authorized to transfer all records or applica
 tions relating to firearms to the licensing authority  of  that  county.
 [
<del>The</del>]  EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN PARAGRAPHS (B) THROUGH (F) OF THIS SUBDIVI
 SION, THE name and address of any person to whom an application for  any
 license has been granted shall be a public record. Upon application by a
 licensee who has changed his place of residence such records or applica
 tions  shall be transferred to the appropriate officer at the licensee's
 new place of residence. A duplicate copy of such  application  shall  be
 filed  by the licensing officer in the executive department, division of
 state police, Albany, within ten days after  issuance  of  the  license.
 THE  SUPERINTENDENT  OF STATE POLICE MAY DESIGNATE THAT SUCH APPLICATION
 SHALL BE TRANSMITTED TO THE DIVISION OF STATE POLICE ELECTRONICALLY.  IN
 THE  EVENT THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE DIVISION OF STATE POLICE DETERMINES
 THAT IT LACKS ANY OF THE RECORDS REQUIRED TO BE FILED WITH THE DIVISION,
 IT MAY REQUEST THAT SUCH RECORDS BE PROVIDED TO IT  BY  THE  APPROPRIATE
 CLERK,  DEPARTMENT  OR AUTHORITY AND SUCH CLERK, DEPARTMENT OR AUTHORITY
 SHALL PROVIDE THE DIVISION WITH SUCH RECORDS. IN THE EVENT  SUCH  CLERK,
 DEPARTMENT OR AUTHORITY LACKS SUCH RECORDS, THE DIVISION MAY REQUEST THE
 LICENSE  HOLDER PROVIDE INFORMATION SUFFICIENT TO CONSTITUTE SUCH RECORD
 AND SUCH LICENSE HOLDER SHALL PROVIDE THE DIVISION  WITH  SUCH  INFORMA
 TION.    SUCH INFORMATION SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE LICENSE HOLDER'S NAME,
 DATE OF BIRTH, GENDER,RACE, RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS, SOCIAL SECURITY  NUMBER
 AND  FIREARMS POSSESSED BY SAID LICENSE HOLDER. Nothing in this subdivi
 sion shall be construed to change the expiration date or  term  of  such
 licenses  if  otherwise  provided  for  in  law.  RECORDS  ASSEMBLED  OR
 COLLECTED FOR PURPOSES OF INCLUSION IN THE DATABASE ESTABLISHED BY  THIS
 SECTION  SHALL BE RELEASED PURSUANT TO A COURT ORDER.  RECORDS ASSEMBLED

 TO  SECTION  400.02  OF  THIS CHAPTER SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO DISCLOSURE
 PURSUANT TO ARTICLE SIX OF THE PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW.

 SUBDIVISION  SHALL  INCLUDE,  ON A SEPARATE WRITTEN FORM PREPARED BY THE

It will be law in about 6 hours. It passed the senate at 11:30 last night.

The "Republican" controlled senate was the only block. The dems firmly control the house and the governors office, as well as the judiciary.

This will be signed into law today or tomorrow, and the statutes take effect in 30, 60, 90 day increments with one year for registration of any "assault weapon" and getting rid of all mags over 10 rounds.

ALBANY, N.Y. - New York lawmakers agreed to pass the toughest gun control law in the nation and the first since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, calling for a tougher assault weapons ban and provisions to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill who make threats.

Here's an excerpt from above that you all should read carefully.........it IS DRACONIAN to the EXTREME.

"This bill
prohibits possession of all magazines with the capacity to contain
more than ten rounds, regardless of the date of manufacture. Going
forward, individuals will only be able to obtain magazines that can
contain up to seven rounds. Those who currently possess magazines
that can contain more than seven rounds will only be permitted to
maintain up to seven rounds in such magazines.

The new law also provides a mechanism to identify individual who
purchase unusually high volumes of ammunition, either in person or
over the Internet. Sellers must run the buyer's name through a State
database modeled after the federal "NICS" database to ensure the
buyer is not prohibited by law from possessing ammunition. Ammunition
sellers are also required to electronically file with the State
records of each ammunition sale, including amount sold."

Did they bother to define "unusually high volumes of ammunition" in the bill? It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see it eventually defined as more than one box.....

Here's the rest of the ammo part of the bill:

"In order to prevent circumvention of these new controls, this bill
requires that any seller--whether located in New York or out of
state-ship the ammunition to a dealer within New York for in-person
pick-up.
The dealer is required to maintain records of the ammunition
sale and to perform a State review of disqualifiers. Direct shipment
of ammunition without a face-to-face transaction prevents a seller
from being able to adequately confirm the identity of a buyer through
the in-person inspection of a valid photo ID. Without adequate
confirmation of a buyer's identity, the benefits of background checks
and record keeping are completely circumvented. A law requiring all
ammunition sales to culminate in a face-to-face transfer, thereby
allowing for effective confirmation of purchaser identity and
corresponding background check, is consistent with this scheme."



Don't know about the subjective definition of "unusually high amount of ammo purchased".

The purchase of ammo in New York will become so draconian that I believe that this, along with the unusual magazine capacity limits going forward, will effectively trash the 2A in New York IMHO.

I hope litigation attacks the ammo provisions under the commerce clause.

Because the ammo purchasing requirements are so draconian.......well I repeat myself.

IIRC, California has bad ammo purchasing procedures and they have been on the books for quite a while now. So I might be spitting in the wind.

So if you have more than 10 guns, I guess you pick your fav 10 and sell the rest?


I don't understand the 10 gun minimum. Fucking A this is tyranny.


5 people were killed with a rifle last year in NY. This is the dumbest shithole of a bill I've ever seen written.

Does New York still count as part of America? Are the people of New York a free people?

Because it really doesn't look like it. They aren't even trying to maintain the illusion of freedom anymore.

I got to ask about the following.

"STATEMENT IN SUPPORT:

In the wrong hands, guns are weapons of untold destruction and
heartbreak: family and community members are taken from us in an
instant; mass shootings shatter our sense of safety in public spaces;
street crimes plague our neighborhoods. Nationwide, gun violence
claims over 30,000 lives annually."


WTF, I have never heard a number anywhere close to 30,000lives annually per year. Where does this crazy number come from, any idea? It should be ilegal for them to place outright lies and or misinformation in the middle of a "bill".

Sigh... so sad..

What they didn't mention was military members who live outside NYS. I live in Japan. Every 5 years the pistol permit needs to be renewed. I've had it since 08. I can't renew it since I live overseas. WTF about my pistols? I'm going to talk to a lawyer tomorrow and see what I can do to sue the piss out of NYS.

I think most of those are suicides.

I don't understand the 10 gun minimum. Fucking A this is tyranny.


5 people were killed with a rifle last year in NY. This is the dumbest shithole of a bill I've ever seen written.

These people that wrote this are mentally insane and are a danger to society.


I didn't see a ten gun max (which is what I assume you meant to say) I must have missed it being the legislation is so damn long.

Ok looks like it may be some 2009 numbers and you are correct this includes close to 20,000 suicides. Suicides should not be included as people acomplish this in many ways, most likely most of them do not involve guns.

sigh more fact twisting to make things meet "their" agenda..


It is just so sad...
