ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York law enforcement authorities will be visiting communities across upstate to explain the state's new, stricter gun control law.
Representatives of the state police and Division of Criminal Justice Services have scheduled forums starting this week to talk about the "NY SAFE Act" and answer questions about changes in the law governing ownership of assault-style semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines. The new law adopted earlier this month after the Newtown school massacre and West Webster firefighter ambush also requires background checks for ammunition purchases.
Sessions with the state officials are set for Tuesday in Clarence, Endwell, Lake Placid, Rochester and Ithaca.
