Gun Law Exemption For Retired Police

Gun Law Exemption For Retired Police

New York lawmakers vote to exempt retired police from new restrictions on large capacity magazines and guns defined as assault weapons. Officers who bought or were issued restricted weapons in the course of their duties and who retired in good standing would have to re-qualify after they retire and they are required to register those guns. The law, enacted in January, generally limits the number of rounds in a magazine to seven, bans large capacity magazines, bans sales of assault style weapons, requires federal background checks in private gun sales, and requires registration of popular semi-automatics like AR-15s with one military style feature previously sold legally in New York.
