    Q: What does this law do?

    A: The NY SAFE Act is designed to make New York a safer place to live by reducing gun violence through common sense and reasonable reforms. The law respects the right to bear arms and the interest of hunters, sportsmen, and legal owners who use their guns appropriately. The law protects New Yorkers by:

    Keeping guns out of the hands of convicted felons and potentially dangerous mental health patients.

    Banning high capacity magazines and assault weapons.

    Ensuring all gun purchases are subject to a background check.

    Toughening criminal penalties on those who use illegal guns.

    Q: Is there any background check required for purchasers of ammunition?

    A: No. The background check requirement does not take effect until January 15, 2014.
