New York: Local Law “A” Tabled Once More in Albany County

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Please Continue Contacting the Members of the County Law Committee

On Monday, July 27, the Albany County Law Committee once again postponed Local Law “A” at the request of the bill sponsor, Phillip Steck.  Local Law “A” will now be tabled until next month’s meeting on Monday, August 24.

Local Law “A” would require that 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. It was repealed at the federal level by the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986. 

P
