New York .50 Caliber Gun Ban Omitted

Friday, July 23, 2004

On July 21, the New York State Legislature reached an agreement to remove language banning .50 caliber rifles from anti-terror legislation. After A7039, a stand alone measure outlawing .50 caliber firearms, met with little support in the Senate earlier this year, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-64) included the gun ban as part of the two-year struggle to pass anti-terrorism legislation in New York.
