Adjustments Could Come to Ammunition Check Program
Saturday, July 11, 2015 10:06 PM EDT
Governor Andrew Cuomo agrees to suspend a proposal requiring background checks to the state's ammunition check program implemented in the Safe Act.
Adjustments could be made to the current ammunition check program.
The Safe Act provides that the state will establish it's own database to conduct background checks.
The database will be accessed by gun shops and sporting goods stores before making ammunition sales to private parties.
The Safe Act was originally passed in 2013 after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and required background checks prior to the purchase of firearms and ammo.
As of now no ban has been lifted in the purchase of ammo in
New York State. The database will not be implemented until it is ready and tested.
