The following summarizes noteworthy recent developments regarding the NY SAFE Act:

  • Whether the NY SAFE Act’s bans on assault weapons and large capacity magazines are in conflict with the Heller decision will be a key question put to New York courts in the constitutional challenge being brought by a group of New York-based firearm organizations, which we reported on previously. 
  • Several upstate New York county legislatures have passed resolutions calling for the repeal of the NY SAFE Act, including Ulster, Oswego, Madison and Ontario counties.

Any questions you may have about the NY SAFE Act should be directed to John F. Renzulli or Christopher Renzulli.
