    Did the New York state legislature just accidentally make it a crime to merely OWN a firearm?

    See page 22 of the posted bill, s2230:

    § 41-a. The penal law is amended by adding a new section 265.01-b to 5 read as follows:
    6 § 265.01-b Criminal possession of a firearm.
    7 A person is guilty of criminal possession of a firearm when he or she:
    8 (1) possesses any firearm or; (2) lawfully possesses a firearm prior to
    9 the effective date of the chapter of the laws of two thousand thirteen
    10 which added this section subject to the registration requirements of
    11 subdivision sixteen-a of section 400.00 of this chapter and knowingly
    12 fails to register such firearm pursuant to such subdivision.
    13 Criminal possession of a firearm is a class E felony.

    Not only that, it appears they have made it retroactive.

    You're a disgusting human being. It makes me wonder what the true intent of your entire party really is?

    summary of the law, it's not an every gun ban.

    Called the New York Safe Act, the law includes a tougher assault weapons ban that broadens the definition of what constitutes an assault weapon, and limits the capacity of magazines to seven bullets, down from 10. The law also requires background checks of ammunition and gun buyers, even in private sales, imposes tougher penalties for illegal gun use, a one-state check on all firearms purchases, and programs to cut gun violence in high-crime neighborhoods.


    They over-reached though.
