When will the IDIOTIC behaviors of our elected Officials decease?  These people think that they can Legislate the Word into a perfect Utopia!!  The BAD GUYS will still get the Bullets they need to commit crimes through illegal channels, the black market or Mexico or wherever.  Once again the “Law Abiding” people who are trying to protect themselves, their loved ones and their property will be restricted, and have their names listed in some useless gov’t database.

What part of ….”SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” do they NOT UNDERSTAND?

BILL NUMBER:S4152

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the penal law, in relation to the purchasing of bullets for
firearms

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To provide for a mechanism whereby
those who purchase bullets are required to complete an application
for such purchase.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
A new section 400.03 would be added to
the penal law. It would require those who purchase bullets to fill
out an application for such purchase. The application would include
the applicant's name, date of birth, and full address. Furthermore,
the applicant would be required to provide specific information, such
as the caliber, make, model, manufacturer's name, and serial number
on the gun that they are purchasing bullets for. Lastly, a violation
of this section will be a class A misdemeanor.

JUSTIFICATION:
Gun violence is a serious ill in our society. Our
current law requires those who purchase a gun to fill out an
application. Likewise, those who purchase bullets should be bound by
the same requirements. This Bill would be a deterrent to those who
possess illegal, unlicensed, unregistered firearms. If they cannot
get access to bullets, they will not be able to facilitate crime and
violence.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2005/06 - S.2609
2007/08 - S.1860

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill shall take effect on the first of November,
the year after it is signed into law.
