New York: Albany County Registration Scheme Postponed

Friday, May 29, 2009

On Tuesday, May 26, County Legislator Phillip Steck, one of the sponsors of Local Law “A,” requested the issue be set aside until next month’s committee meeting.

Local Law “A” would require a valid firearms license be shown when purchasing ammunition in Albany County.  The law would also mandate that retailers keep a record of all ammunition sales, including the type, caliber, and quantity of the ammunition, the make, model and serial number of the firearm it is for, as well as the purchaser’s name and address. 

Local Law “A” would also create a secondary method of gun registration for both long guns and handguns.  Congress has experimented with ammunition registration in the past, only to discover that it was not only ineffective for law enforcement, but completely unmanageable due to the sheer volume of transactions.  Ammunition registration creates huge and cumbersome record-keeping requirements and provides no useful benefits for law enforcement. That’s why it was repealed at the federal level by the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986. 

Please contact the members of the Law Committee and the County Legislators IMMEDIATELY and voice your opposition to Local Law “A.”  Contact information for the members of the Law Committee can be found below.  County Legislators can be reached by phone at (518) 447-7168 or fax (518) 447-5695.  For more contact information, please visit http://www.albanycounty.com/departments/legislature/legislator.asp?id=165
