BILL NUMBER:S3610

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the penal law, in relation to the sale of component parts of a
pistol or firearm

PURPOSE:
Will make it illegal to sell gun parts to any individual that does not
possess a valid pistol permit. The part sold must be the same related
to the pistol/firearm listed on the purchaser's pistol permit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. The penal law is amended by adding a new section 265.45 to
read as follows:
Sec.265.45 Sale of component parts of a pistol or firearm. 1. Any
merchant, manufacturer, firm, corporation, association or agent or
employee thereof who offers for sale in this state any component part
of a pistol or firearm to any individual who does not possess a valid
pistol permit shall be guilty of a class D felony. The component part
being purchased must be a component part to the pistol or firearm
listed on the purchaser1s valid pistol permit. 2. For purposes of
this section "firearm" or "pistol It means a weapon as defined in
section 265.00 of this article.

JUSTIFICATION:
The availability of illegal firearms remains a serious threat to
public safety, and is a constant problem facing law enforcement
officers in New York State. Requiring a purchaser to produce a valid
firearm license for a specific weapon or its components would
severely restrict the ability to create or repair firearms for
illegal use.
