The Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act is a gun control law that was passed in the state of New York in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. The law was passed by the New York State Legislature on January 15, 2013, and was signed into law by Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo on the same day who described the law as the "toughest gun control law in the United States." The law includes a number of provisions, such as banning the sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines, mandatory background checks, reporting of sales, assault weapon registry, and increased sentencing for gun related crimes.

Yes, without hesitation. It was passed illegally and is unconstitutional. 5 years ago from a Republican in Plattsburgh, NY
The bill should be amended in cooperation with NYS gun dealers but not repealed entirely. Most importantly mandatory background checks, and increased sentencing for gun related crimes should remain in place. 5 years ago from a Republican in New York, NY
There are good points and bad in this law. I think it should be repealed, and re-written. I think the people who fought so hard to get this law voted down should work with the State to come to an agreement/compromise! Quit trying to bully each other;... 5 years ago from a Republican in Peru, NY
Gun control does not control human behavior. Need to drastically increase support for mental health. Need to provide for much longer inpatient care where needed and need certified by special forensic psychiatrists. 5 years ago from a Republican in Newburgh, NY
