    A lot of people have questions about the law. Well, the first step is to actually read what the law says. The link below is to a site maintained by the state of NY. It has ALL the current laws. Penal, Mental Hygiene, Vehicle and Traffic, etc.

    Most of the firearms law that we're concerned with are in the Penal section.
    • Article 35 deals with self defense. Everyone should understand what is permissible as self defense in NY.
    • Article 265 deals with gun crimes like possession, criminal use, sales, magazine limitations, and much more.
    • Article 400 deals with pistol permits.
    The General Business Law section has the background check requirement.
    • Section 898 deals with the private sale background check and record requirements.

    http://public.leginfo.state.ny.us/lawssrch.cgi?NVLWO:
    At the top of the page, click Laws, and then click Laws of New York


    So, this info will let you read the laws. This doesn't get into case law, but it's a start

    Already done. The site used to be a little better and you could link to specific sections. There are other sites out there, but I figure it's best to go to the official source.

    Only if you turn it into what the state calls an assault weapon. (I believe)
